A bold American walks into a bar…
SYDNEY, Australia, JUNE 2017 – The Grounds of Alexandria has been treating coffee aficionados and foodies with a host of tantalising options for the last five years. Staying true to their originality and innovative mindset, The Grounds are launching a hand-crafted beer to complement their in-house roasted coffee, creating a new flavour experience, available exclusively at The Potting Shed.
Introducing, The Lord of The Grounds Brown, a pairing of two classic flavours; a bold American Brown ale, with balanced citrus and pine hop aromas, rich malt flavour, gentle bitterness and semi dry finish with The Grounds’ signature coffee, a smooth espresso shot. The exciting combination is a result of a partnership between The Grounds, Lord Nelson Brewery.
The Grounds’ cellar manager, Alex Levi, a beer sommelier of sorts, insists beer and coffee connoisseurs alike will enjoy the new pairing. And while others have attempted to combine the two unique flavours before, Alex believes they pale in comparison to The Grounds’ unique take. “We collaborated with Andrew Robson, the head brewer at Lord Nelson Brewery to create a bold, balanced beer, brewed to complement our in-house roasted coffee perfectly. In this way, they can be enjoyed together, or separately, much like the pairing of wine and food,” says Alex. The Lord of The Grounds Brown is set to be an exclusive offering at The Potting Shed in The Grounds. A lively meeting place, The Potting Shed serves up an abundant seasonal menu where guests can enjoy sharing plates or after-work snacks, surrounded by fresh florals and greenery and live entertainment. An impressive selection of wines, spirits, cocktails and beers, not to mention the newest addition, are on offer to help guests relax, unwind and chat the day and night away.
The Lord of The Grounds Brown will be available from 1st June, for the duration of Winter.
Price: $13.00 for an espresso and mug of beer, or $9.50 for mug of beer and $4.00 for an espresso.

The Potting Shed at The Grounds of Alexandria 41/43 Bourke Rd, Alexandria NSW 2015. Open weekdays 11:30am-late, weekends 11am-late
