so today I continue my travels through the beers of Australia, today I unfortunately take a look at one of the nations favourite tipples, if you have been following me for sometime you may be aware that doesn’t bode well for this beer. I recently took the time to go on a couple of brewery tours in the Melbourne area and took photos and did some write ups on them and everything but due to the way…
so I went on a lovely tour of mountain goat brewery recently, this is a Melbourne based brewery that was founded when the owners decided that beer was more important than surfing, for those who don’t know this is practically sacrilegious in Australia, this brewery tour is free and available on a Wednesday night, if your ever in Melbourne i recommend that you head down to their brewery bar as it…
Today we take a much needed trip away from Melbourne to its big Australian rival, Sydney. this brewery is situated in NSW and although we will never answer the immortal question of which is better Melbourne or Sydney we can at least enjoy the beers that both of these fine cities produce.

HOPS Super Pride, Willamette
MALTS Pale, Crystal
Another Melbournian beer for you all tonight, this ones comes from mountain goat the little craft brewer that could. i recently went to their brewery for a drink or two and they tell this story of how they started the brewery, when they started it they put up a car, a house and two surf boards in order to get the capital and they’re proud of that, they’re fiercely independent and have seen huge…
so we continue not only are Australian beers but with are beers brewed in Melbourne this time. this beer comes from Matilda bay which according to the official website was a craft brewer until they were purchased by CUB, many people have recommended this brewery to me, so over the course of the next couple of weeks i shall be taking a look at all their major brews to see if they live up to the…
Brewed in new south wales australia
Australian Pale ale
An ideal match for lean cuts and seafood
it was a very Apache beer with a substantial amount of carbonation topped off with a nice robust head, a beautifully standard pale ale that I find myself coming back to time and time again.
the aroma is meant to invite the drinker in, just like we…
i am an unadulterated pint drinker, its how my father drank his pint and his fathers father and so on and so forth. its not just tradition though that keeps me coming back to the pint, as you can probably tell im a bit of a beer lover, although loving beer fills those around me with warm thoughts of sophistication and class it doesn’t help much with my waist line, i am a large gentleman, a proud…
so this week i take a break from australia and returned to have a look at one of germanys most popular beers,German beers for me are usually a safe bet, there usually well made, thanks to that aged old purity law with a high enough ABV that i only need a couple to get me somewhat inebriated, truth be told im somewhat of a germophile, i like their culture, i like their history and until i tasted…
- 500 ml bottle
- Available from Aldi (my current closest provider of beer)
- Available seasonally during the summer months.
Imagine my surprise when I poured this beer into the glass and it was cloudy, i mean i was totally unprepared for that fact, i mean the brewer should really give its patrons more warning than they did. On a less sarcastic note, the beer was golden in colour…
so what with the all the Christmas weight i have accumulated, something i’m informed a lot of us have to deal with this on a yearly basis. despite this i am becoming all too aware of my weight and am endeavoring to do something about it, this poses a huge problem for me though because not only am i incredibly lazy, i also like a beer at the end of a hard day and apparently weight loss and…
