Gold Medal Recipe! NEIPA!

Who doesn’t love Gold medal winning beer??? This cracking NEIPA recipe came from the guys over at Northside Brewing, who were lucky enough to take out gold in a local Melbourne Home Brewing competition! As a result they were recently given the opportunity to upscale this recipe on a commercial system where it will be served on tap locally around Melbourne!
