    Cripes, do they have beer in Oz these days ! I did a year in the 80s and lack of anything resembling beer was one of the factors that made me come home

    I was out in Aus. during October and November. The little Creatures Brewery in Freemantle has some very nice brews, the Pale Ale in particular was my favourite. It comes in draught and bottles. Also the 5 Pines Brewery in Manly, near Sydney also brews good beer.

    I can agree with you there. We did a tasting session at the brewery while we were there, and the pizzas we had for lunch were delicious.

    My local in Barnet, the Mitre has it on as a regular house ale for £3.75 a pint.

    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.
