The arrival of a new Stone & Wood @counterculturebeer beer is always exciting, but Lovely Bubbly Brut Rosé even more so, as it comes as part of the first delivery of the @stoneandwood Beer Club. With a cool hat and two great glasses, as well as regular beery deliveries, it’s the type of club I [...]
Grimstar Rocks American Pale Ale from @blastabrewingcompany in WA. Another one of the samples generously given to us from the other side of the continent! Blasta is actually gaelic for tasty and delicious which I only discovered recently. Grimster Rocks takes its name from a race horse named after Blasta founder Steven Russell’s brother, who [...]
@bridgeroadbrewers barrel/wild beer project @maydayhills are often hard to find in Sydney, so I was very excited when my local independent beer shop @lugarnocellars stocked the latest incarnation - Brettanomyces Blood Orange Saison. Each beer combines a different (generally European) style with fruit, ageing in oak foeder’s and introduction of the delightful wild yeast, Brettanomyces. [...]
Hidden inside suburban @clubrivers , is a great little craft beer bar, @maltbarrel . Revolutionaries in terms of bringing rotating taps (about eight at a time) of independent goodness into club land, it’s a fantastic spot to go for a growler fill. With @akashabrew on the regular tap list, a collaboration between the two is [...]
It's a Frenchies marathon! Vincent and Thomas have created arguably the best French restaurant in Sydney with Thomas doing the cooking and Vince brewing it's an awesome collaboration from extremely humble beginnings with the food cart and micro brews (reminds me we need to go back with the wives trent). It was a shame that [...]

Kereru Brewing NZ Old Red Oak Ale Special Edition Amber Ale. With a 50 litre brewing facility underneath their house and the sound of wood pigeons (kereru) in their back garden, Kereru Brewing was born. Their next move was to turn a derelict and dusty carpet factory (once Feltex) in Upper Hutt, into a micro-brewery [...]
There has been some controversy over the @waywardbrewing Coffee and Donuts Milk Stout, and I’m here to dispel that. While there may have been a bad batch for Melbourne @gabsfestival , mine is magnificent. Almost as good in the can as it was on tap, it’s ambitious, to style, subtle and fashionable (hazy, sour or [...]
The moment I started seeing the @bridgeroadbrewers Nitro Mountain Lager I was intrigued. The mixed concepts of smooth nitro, the connotation of winter and lager didn’t seem to work in my mind, so I only bought one to try. How wrong I was. Drunk on a cool afternoon overlooking a range in the back of [...]
Dainton Brewing in Conjunction with Bright Tank Brewing, Van Dieman Oysters and Rocky Ridge Brewing Shellraise Oyster StoutTim2019-08-21T01:06:27+00:00
Stout and oysters are one of the great food/drink matchings. Every bit as good as Pinot and duck. The slightly sweet, slightly bitter flavour profile of stout sings with the brininess of oysters. Oysters have also been traditionally used in beer as a clarifying product but are now used for flavouring. Enter the @dainton.beer Shellraiser [...]
Lava Lava Mango Raspberry Sour from Deep Creek Brewing Co, our friends across the ditch! Been saving this one for a special occasion and with the release yesterday of @toolmusic new single Fear Inoculum I think it's apt. @deepcreekbrewingco have been crushing it lately with some really tasty brews, this is no exception. Pours a [...]
