Beer Advent Calendar – Day 10

December 10, 2015

What did I unwrap today? Mornington Porter Imperial Porter, 6.0% Woohoo…I have opened a dark brew today. I do love me a good Porter. Porters have been around forever and are probably the most forgiving style of beer to brew for newbies like me…you tend to be able to hide your mistakes behind all of the roasty […]

Beer Advent Calendar – Day 9

December 9, 2015

What did I unwrap today? Rocks Brewing Governor Golden Ale, 4.5% Another Golden Ale, hey? Seems like the Golden Ale is another key piece of ammunition in the Australia Craft Brewers war on bland, mass produced, mega-swill lagers. Another “gateway” offering that has enough taste and aroma to allow it to be a little bit different […]

What did I unwrap today? Burleigh Brewing Co. 28 Pale Ale American Pale Ale, 4.8% When I first saw this beer, I was thinking that these guys had made a 1970’s style beer and I had awful flashbacks of my Old Man in tight stubbies shorts, a bonds singlet and a terry towelling hat, drinking […]

What did I unwrap today? Hop Nation The Fiend Australian Pale Ale, 5.4% Straight Outta Melbourne, some crazy winemakers called Sam and Duncan! These guys decided they would brew some beers after travelling the world with their love of wine…good choice fellas! Working with hops since 2014, they are relatively new to the scene, only […]

Beer Advent Calendar – Day 5

December 5, 2015

What did I unwrap today? Southern Bay Requiem Pilsner Pilsner, 5% Right, so I think I mentioned this week that in the brewing world, everything is open to interpretation…even the classic old style of Pilsener that is steeped in 100’s of years of brewing tradition. These guys have decided to put a new spin on the […]

What did I unwrap today? Hargreaves Hill ESB Extra Special Bitter, 5.2% This is getting embarrassing! I am meant to be a craft beer writer and this is three days in a row of being surprised with a new brewery that I know nothing about. My old mate Richard used to always say “every day […]

What did I unwrap today? Two Birds Taco Wheat Beer, 5.2% The girls at Two Birds have been taking the Aus craft beer scene by storm in recent months…and for good reason, they make smashing beers! I am hoping to write an article about Jane and Danielle some time next year, and not because they […]
