Bundaberg Is Releasing an Alcoholic Version of Its Ginger Beer

Walk don't run to the bottle shop

Dust off the deck chair and grab your eskies, because Bundaberg Distilling Company and Bundaberg Ginger Beer, makers of Australia’s favourite ginger beer, have joined forces to launch Bundaberg Alcoholic Ginger Beer—just in time for summer. 

Ginger beer is an icon in Australia. If you remember asking your parents for a ginger beer when you were young, thinking it was an adult drink, you’re not alone. Although, now this alcoholic version is strictly for adults, and is the perfect fresh new drink for picnics and summer entertaining.

Bundaberg Alcoholic Ginger Beer is craft brewed in Bundaberg over three days, using locally grown fresh ginger and freshly cut white Queensland cane spirit for a zesty ginger bite and refreshing taste. Just like the Non-alcoholic ginger beer you need to flip it before you sip it to infuse that real Aussie ginger.

The new cans will be available in early November. You can find them in independent bottle shops around Australia or all leading liquor stores in early 2022. A four-pack costs $21.99.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
