It may not be the Hills Hoist, a garage roller door, the Bionic Ear or the Two-Stroke Lawn Mower, but we?re pretty proud of Australia?s latest ?invention? ? our Flemish Summer Ale (known affectionately as Murray?s Endless Summer), being released in NSW and Victoria from Australia Day ? Tuesday 26 January 2010.

?This beer is perfect for lazy summer afternoons and a refreshing change from all those bland lagers out there.
Also marking it as unusual for a Belgian style is its spicy late hop character. The beer isn?t a hop driven style by any means but there is a stronger presence than in most Belgian styles which adds to the overall complexity of the beer.
