The beer that kicked off our Shake series – “Salted Caramel Shake” – featured (among other things) a ridiculous amount of crystal malt and was surprisingly well received. After its 11th run through the brewhouse we decided it needed a rest. 7 Shakes, 22 batches, and 18 months later, Creme Brulee Shake emerges as the older, more mature sibling to Salted Caramel Shake – with the caramel fudge sweetness dialed back and a darker toffee note introduced, with more of a custard vibe to the flavour and mouthfeel. We triple dry hopped it with the autotune of hazy hops – Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic & Galaxy – so we can still pretend it’s an IPA.

DID YOU KNOW?
3 Ravens were one of the first to install a traditional, English-style hand pump into a Melbourne pub. They also turn their hands to all manner of limited releases, from past favourites such as the Ale Noir – their Dark smoke beer aged in a French oak barrel previously used for pinot noir – and the Ravenator Bock to popular repeats like the USB and more recent beasts such as the whisky barrel-aged Black Mass and Pedro Ximinez aged Druid.
