Hot and sweaty in Brisbane so a cold beer is tip top
Local brewery, Green Beacon. Passion fruit, Orange, Guava milkshake IPA. Proper cloudy, tart. Decent
A cheeky Mephisto IPA from Monster in between the day shift and the evening shift at work. Not bad.
Strangely enough I also had one last night. Delicious and, yes, it certainly keeps the taste buds fascinated.
I also tried out a Siren Strawberry Praline American Stout which they launched on Monday. It has a running undercurrent of hazelnut, kind of doing the job of lactose in a more substantial way with only the lightest tang of strawberry. As I shared the first one, I'm having the second all to myself!
A new micropub has opened nearby, and as we were passing it seemed rude not to call in for a couple.
First up was Back Yard Brew's The Shed Head, all the way from Sweden apparently:
It's an American Pale Ale, although as you can see it's a bit darker than you might expect. And very good it was too.
I then had a Jorvik Premium Blonde from Rudgate Brewery at Tockwith, which was blonde and very hoppy.
Mrs ND was happy that they had "proper" lager, which you can just see skulking at the side of the pic...
I had some more. I'm drinking keg, can for show
This is getting out of hand.
I know. If you look at page1 of this thread it's all about Kronenburg and Boddingtons
Where did it all go wrong?
Fear and Loathing in Adelaide
Hopsmith by Akasha Brewery in NSW. 7.2% and it's only 6pm so God only knows how tonight's gonna work out
It's a normal strong IPA. And all the better for that
Why is Oz beer so expensive?
Do they still ban women and have urinals under the bar?
My second Abyss Tropical Thunder of the week in a different boozer.
Well worth glugging again
Northern Monk Beer and Art 02 is a sour FLIPA and reminds me i must get up to Leeds soon. Next to it is a gifted 8 Wired sour IPA that needs a bit of a chill before drinking
Floridian IPA ....yes, I had to Google it too
Or just Florida IPA. I had to ask when I first saw it. Some day soon, no doubt, the Mid West will launch a MWIPA.
Oooooh it's been a long time since I had a Gunamatta. Still good though
