Christian O’Connell releases bushfire fundraising beer
Gold104.3’s Christian O’Connell has thrown his support behind bushfire relief, creating a beer to raise funds for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
The beer sees Gold104.3 team up with independent brewer Hawkers release Heroes Gold, named for the bushfire heroes and volunteers.
Last week O’Connell and sidekick Jack Post went on a tour of Hawkers Beer to go behind the scenes where the magic was happening.
They even got their hands dirty with some of the brewery equipment.
As of this morning (February 3) the beer is available to pre-order, so O’Connell and Post chatted about the best food to pair with your Heroes Gold once you buy some.
“Food pairings are normally the domain of wine,” O’Connell said. “I’ve never had food pairings recommended for beer!
“Food pairings for Heroes Gold: pizza, salads, Mexican and chicken, cheese pairings as well!”
UPDATE: The first round of pre-orders for Heroes Gold have sold out, with over 650 cases sold in just under three days!
