    Here we are again, a Gipsy Hill Baller in front of me. It's a slightly too bitter for my taste NEIPA. Nice rounded flavour apart from the big bitterness.

    Pretty well every pub/hotel in the cities (Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney) have a drinkable IPA effort. And there are lots of establishments that put real effort into offering very good Australian brews.

    So, in short, easy to find high quality beer in Oz these days. They're particularly good at sours which seem to be so well suited to the hot weather

    To continue the discussion on whether Oz has decent beers....I ended up in one of Sydney's equivalents of Royal British Legion (don't ask)

    Modus Operandi Brewing Sonic Prayer IPA. 6.1% of bitter loveliness.

    Champion, it's what they start the kids on in Scotland before they get into meths and jellies.

    I'd likely get stabbed venturing outside Highgate. I've heard that London is not safe

    I drank at 'London's first cooperatively owned pub yesterday, the Ivy House, Nunhead, SE15. While getting a round in I had to order a half of Pint. Oi, Marble, Pint is a daft name for a beer!

    Seeing as I'm up north, the next few beers may have a North theme. This is a North Riding Tiramisu Porter, and very tasty too!

    All Hands Brewing Co. Cream Ale....which to you and me is sorta like a decent bitter very much in the Boddingtons style. Nice and undemanding on a boiling hot day. AUD8 a pint (about £4.50) on happy hour. I've kinda got used to Aussie pricing so that sounds cheap

    Brew on the premises and have a decent range and the place is rammed

    "Half a pint" or "a pint"....

    ...sounds perfectly normal to me.

    This is the beer that nearly landed them in court when a (disgruntled) customer reported them to trading-standards because the cans are 500ml

    Trading standards said they would not take any action but Marble ought to reconsider the name.

    Now if you buy this beer in a can it's called "Metric"; other names were considered:

    My suggestion was "Five-hundred-five-hundred-and-sixty-eighths-of-a-pint" but that wouldn't fit on the can.

    Haha must be the Mancunian sense of humour ...like calling your band The The. My favourite beer name of 2019 so far is Drop Kick Me Jesus from Tempest (they're based in the Scottish Borders near Gala:reading:), a most agreeable sour IPA (or hoppy sour). I suggested them to the guys in Fell Bar Kendal as a brewery they should have on tap more often.
