God damn stone and wood pacific ale tastes even better in Byron.

I like the fact that they haven't conformed and made a stock standard 4.7-5% beer.... its a great flavour and you can sit on them all night.

I gave that a go last week. Points for originality, but there was something a bit... I dunno... unholy(?) about the whole thing. It just didn't have that hefe taste I was craving. I'd probably still drink it again, but if I had the choice between a traditional style hefe and that, I'd go the traditional style.

i love their pale ale. The Torpedo IPA is downright awesome as well

keen to try them in cans now they've started producing them. Prob be a while before australia sees them though
i'm curious to see if there's any taste difference from can to bottle (both poured in a glass of course)

Torpedo is brilliant, have to be in the right mood for it though. I also had their Northern Hemisphere Harvest which I rate though I did need to sip it to start with

cans are theoretically better than bottles. It's just the bogan perception Aussies need to overcome.

I think one of the problems with cans is that they insulate even less than bottles so unless you drink very quickly the last mouthful is always pretty warm and insipid and generally tases like arse, and clouds your perception of cans in genral. Use of a can/stubby holder fixes that though.

Good article on Sierra Nevada here http://blogs.independent.co.uk/2012/...anged-america/

If it hadn't have been for this brewery, there would have been no craft beer revolution, no little creatures, in fact probably no Australian micro's doing interesting beer.

Dear Sydney ITMers,

I will be in central Sydney for about 6 hours next Wednesday. Where can I go (maybe somewhere near the rocks) for a meal and good beer (and to ply the missus with Cider)?

Had my first pint of Red Hill imperial stout for the year on Sunday, still the best seasonal brew in the land, pure magic.

ignore that, go to Harts / Rocks Brewing.

RedOak has gone seriously downhill. Harts is right in the Rocks too.

But before beer aficionados complain about the foam diluting their drink, the froth is also made of beer.

Here I was thinking that beer aficionados didn't drink beer that needed to be consumed at freezing temperatures to numb their tastebuds from horrible flavours.

Invent me a glass with a thermostat dial that keeps my beverage at either cold, cool, cellar or warm depending on my style of choice and I'll take a dozen.

This seems to be the obvious thread in which to post this image:

The Gypsy & The Goat - Mikkeller/Mountain Goat collab brew is pretty fucking special - definitely grab a couple of longnecks if it ends up as a 'rare breed' distro.

Had some most excellent brews this last week in the States. Some of the highlights (according to my untappd blogging) :

Gueuze Tilquin by Gueuzerie Tilquin at the Library Alehouse in Santa Monica (It's a sour lambic blend of cantillon boon lindemans & giardin)
Supplication by Russian River Brewing Company at The Library Alehouse (possibly the best sour lambic outside of Belgium)
Blind Pig IPA by Russian River Brewing Company at The Library Alehouse
Palate Wrecker by Green Flash Brewing
Mephistopheles' Stout by Avery Brewing Company at Old Kings Road Santa Barbara
Fizzy Yellow Beer by Green Flash Brewing
Evil Cousin by Heretic Brewing Co.



Parabola by Firestone Walker Brewing - this beer is rare as hen's teeth, and sells for upwards of $80 a bottle. It's fucking amazing however. Can't say there is a better imperial stout anywhere.



Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale by Rogue Ales - not recommended, needed to drink the Firestone above to wash the taste out

Double Bastard Ale (2011) by Stone Brewing Co. at Union Ale Brewing Co Santa Barbara - wow and wow

West Coast IPA by Green Flash Brewing Co. at Union Ale Brewing Co in a giant glass boot.




heaps of Firestone DBA and Union Jack

Sublimely Self-Righteous Dry-hopped With Chinook Hops by Stone Brewing Co. at Stone HQ
Stone 11.11.11 Vertical Epic Ale by Stone Brewing Co. at Stone HQ

both on tap at the brewery itself
Hopped in the car and torpe'ed to the shack

If you get the chance mate, it would be much appreciated.

(As an aside, I wonder if Chris would let me move into the new shop when I move back at the end of the year... )
