Bentspoke spice it up
Canberra brewery BentSpoke is brewing a beer with 23 chillies and heritage grains to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the National Multicultural Festival. ‘The Blazing Saddle’ was brewed to celebrate Australia’s multicultural heritage. “Chillies are an important part of so many cultures, so it was an easy decision for us to use them as a feature of this special event beer,” says co-owner and head brewer, Richard Watkins.
The Blazing Saddle will be available at the BentSpoke stall at the National Multicultural Festival, 15-17 February, and at their Braddon location and King O’Malley’s until sold out.
A scoop of love

Ruby Love is a pink gelato made with seedless raspberries, rosewater, locally baked meringue and a ruby chocolate swirl.
Ruby Love is available at Gelatissimo while stocks last.
