    Brewers at the Australian Brewery in Rouse Hill wanted to test the flavours and made a beer with curry spices.

    The Mad Mad Madras beer will be one of 120 beers created especially for the annual The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh.

    Master brewer Neal Cameron said it’s an opportunity to try things he wouldn’t normally.

    “We enjoy the challenge of pushing the bounds of what’s possible and what’s sensible,” he said.

    “The beer is rich dark ale made with basmati rice and flavoured with tamarind, cumin, coriander, ginger and garam masala — all the key flavours of a good curry.”
