The achacha (or achachairú) is a highly prized exotic fruit from Bolivia, where it is traditionally enjoyed as a Christmas treat. It has been cultivated in Australia since 2003 by Bruce and Helen at the Palm Creek Plantation in Giru, Queensland, where it was certified organic in 2018. It’s refreshing, effervescent and the last 45 kilos of this year’s harvest went into this collaboration brew prepared by the 2018 AIBA Champion breweries to serve at the 2019 AIBA Awards Dinner. The tangy citrus taste of the achacha is the perfect match for this Gose-style beer, soured with the help of Weyermann Sauermalz and complemented by the passionfruit aroma of HPA’s Galaxy hops.
