So it’s time to celebrate. After cheering our hearts out, we think you’d like to have a turn.

Picking up a World Beer Championship Gold Medal in Chicago earlier this month, Twisted Palm has become our new golden child. Awarded 91 points, with a rating of, “Exceptional” it has certainly done the Burleigh Brewing family proud.

Here is a snippet of what the judges had to say; “Flavors of tangerine and grapefruit … with a supple, bright, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and an effortless, touch of dried orange and mango finish. A very tasty fruity session ale.”

Twisted Palm is a tropical pale ale brewed to capture the special essence of Burleigh Heads and everything we love about living here. With our first batch of the brew selling out in just a week – we’ve had to make sure to keep every face happy and every hand full of Twisted Palm (There’s a reason humans were given two hands).

For those keeping score, Burleigh Brewing’s trophy cabinet now holds 38 World medals, 22 of which are gold! Not to mention the prestigious World Beer Cup gold medal awarded for the Burleigh Brewing HEF in 2012. Not trying to toot our own horn here, but when judges are dishing out judgments like this it would be hard not to be singing it from the rooftops (or tank-tops in this case).
