YOUNG HENRYS / YOU AM I BREW AM I

Young Henrys / You Am I Brew Am I. Aussie rock band You Am I teamed up with Young Henrys and created this brew to celebrate twenty years of albums and touring.

Frontman Tim Rodgers is certainly no stranger to booze, but he is probably more a case of VB man than a craft beer drinker.

However, it was the bassist, Andy Kent, who developed the beer with head brewer Richard Adamson. The idea was to make pale ale that was an introduction to craft beer without being too confronting for You Am I fans.

Brew Am I is a new world pale ale comes in at 5% ABV and is brewed with ingredients sourced from a part of the world each member calls home. It utilises rolled wheat from Western Australia, malt from Victoria and hops from New Zealand. The kiwi hop variety used was Kohatu which is supposed to give floral, spicy and piney characteristics.

It looks like your standard commercial beer, bright yellow, crystal clear, high carbonation with an artificial looking head. It tastes like a VB with slightly better mouthfeel. This beer is a bit pointless. Purposely brewing craft beer to taste like a commercial beer to please the punters. They could have just brought along a few kegs of VB, saved a lot of time and effort and the fans would be just as happy.
