Wilson & Market – Melbourne
Prahran’s ‘luxe urbane eatery and bar’ turns up the summer heat…
The heat’s arrived and with it a delicious new beer to wrap up your summer-loving taste buds over at Wilson & Market.
The pineapple flavour is inspired by a new artwork to adorn the wall at Wilson & Market, by Karina Eybatova, not to mention the fact it’s a delectable seasonal fruit for summer.
A collaboration with Shedshaker Brewing (formerly Castlemaine brewing Co.), the Gone Troppo Summer Ale features gorgeous tropical pineapple and passionfruit aromas from the Australian Vic Secret and Galaxy hops, with a background of pine and citrus. The ale features a subtle tart pineapple flavour with malty sweetness and crispy finish.
The small batch brew will be completed by a garnish of wood BBQ pineapple to embellish the flavours of summer.
A new wood-fired flatbread called ‘Prosciutto Primavera’ will be the perfect partner – topped with fava bean purée, prosciutto and asparagus – as well as a new selection of cheeses on offer.
For those who don’t drink beer, Wilson & Market will be serving up a signature summer cocktail called the ‘Troppo’ akin to the beloved classic ‘Mai Thai’.
With the change in season also comes Wilson & Market’s new Sunday cheese event on the terrace, Cheese Dreamz: all you can eat cheese, bottomless tap wine, cider and craft beer for $50pp. Cheeses on offer include the new Amile goat’s cheese, surface-ripenened buffalo milk cheese highlights from the Yarra Valley, Stone & Crowe cheeses, L’Artisan Organic Cheese who offer sensational gruyere and triple cream cheeses, and Will Studd’s Le Marquis Chevre (goat’s milk).
Cheese Dreamz -Pineapple Beer runs every Sunday 3-6pm
