New England Brewing Co located in Uralla NSW have created The Hive Fond of my wheat beers, I saw this on the “new” shelf at @plonk_cbr and had to give it a go. The Hive is marketed as a European-style wheat ale that’s all about the honey, they use Stringy Bark from a local apiarist. [...]

Pact Beer Co - Brickworks Brown Ale Recently I had the pleasure of sampling Pact Beer Co’s range at Plonk Belconnen, ACT. Pact are one of the many great Canberra breweries punching above their weight in the Australian brew scene, and their malty Brickworks Brown Ale stood out for me as a favourite. The 330ml [...]
Hope Brewhouse - Double IPA Had this recommended to me by the Ladies at @plonk_cbr so I grabbed a four pack. I won't lie, the first night of drinking this was during a heavy night of other beers. All I remembered was heavy alcohol. I am glad I went back and had it again on [...]
I first heard about Capital Brewing Co in 2016 while having a feed at Grease Monkey, I was impressed back then. Through 2017 I have watched them expand massively with a new brewhouse in Fyshwick that is getting a great reputation for good food thanks to @Brodburger as well as their amazing brews. They are [...]
Tim from Brewsbuzz did a short review on this beer last year, and I've been meaning to give it a go. I have to say I'm pretty impressed - Batch Brewing from Sydney, make a great APA (so good even the swans want in). Cheers to @rickoshea007 for hooking me up! This is a cloudy [...]

Naturally brewed in Orange NSW Poured out a light clear orange with a decent head which quickly disappeared. I did notice a small amount of sediment stuck to [...]
@beercreative have a great ethos and strong connections within the Australian beer brewing industry. With their collective knowledge they've released a great range of beers to the public, and today I sample the Helles Yeah Lager (thanks @rickoshea007). The Lager poured out pale amber with a subtle head, which stayed while I drank. The aroma [...]
Bruny Island Beer Co in Tasmania have produced a refreshing Dark Pale Ale cleverly named Oxymoron. Poured from a very beer-nerd labeled 500ml bottle. Very dark almost opaque chocolate colour with small frothy head which leaves a nice lace as the beer is drunk. So much sediment from my bottle it's like a shaken up [...]
Arrrr, me hearties. As corny as it sounds, I chose Pirate Life for this kayaking trip on the Kangaroo River because, well... we were in boats. Beer geeks take note, the brewing process and ingredients are sneakily listed just under the rim of each Pirate Life can. Pours as a slightly cloudy light amber, [...]
