Your address. Now.
Drank a few of the Pirate Life beers in SA. Well deserving of the high opinion folks have of them....
Is there not anything new out there that our Intrepid beer fanciers out there that have tasted lately, I finally got hold of the Balter XPA today after reading great things but was unimpressed, while a very nice beer nothing especially stood out for me, I did see a Monteiths Extra Pale IPA in another establishment, anyone!.
Yep I agree with you on balter..
Interesting packaging design, but taste wise it's rather plain..
I know mick fanning is a part owner, but this beer has pretty much undone any kudos he got for punching a shark.
Balter xpa is full of flavour, and I am a big hop head. Maybe you guys got an older batch. For best flavour they should be drunk within 2-3 months max once out of the fermenter.
Tecate. Tastes like Mexican beer, and not heavy, so will probably have a thousand tonight ...
Drinking this lately:
I'm in love
grabbed a stoke mixer on the way home last night, 6 different beers in the pack. Haven't tried the stout or the amber ale yet but the others were brilliant.
When i opend up the first and sat down the very next news story on tv was about the history of the tiny pub in nelson that started brewing it lol
it's always a slow news day in NZ...
Samuel Smith’s India Ale. Very tasty, and not over the top with fruity hops. Only downside is that it proudly announces that it is vegan friendly...
Yeah but realistically that's kind of like Halal certification on chocolate....
I miss isinglass...
Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale. What Kent Old Brown would be if they used good ingredients.
@Scott Gourley's Lovechild
Or any other Sydney based merkins
nice cans baz..
although i'm sure it's not the first time you've heard that..
I don't drink beer for the sole reason of "Look at what I'm drinking...."
Lots of pretentious types around who think "My beer's better than yours".
Give me something with 4.8 % alcohol by volume that costs $48 a carton for 24 glass stubbies rather than a wanker can of some imported shit that costs the same for a six pack due to the pretty shitty labelling.
I drink for the effect. Same as clothes for me. Dress/drink for function rather than for fashion.
Or maybe there's just more people around who drink for taste....all well and good to drink emu piss because it's cheap and gets you blind, but it still tastes like emu piss.
went for a night out with a few guys at the local craft brewery..
they had a $3 / $4 special going on their stubbies..
great night.. and got away with a full night out, including food, for less than a $50 note..
i guess that's why they invented brown paper bags..
And hessian sacks.
But there's one problem....hessian makes my skin itch....
