Little Creature on TAP!

I’m a big fan of Little Creatures Pale Ale, its one of my favourite summertime drinking beers. A lot of people have bagged the brewery, not the product, since it was bought out by Lion Nathan (the makers of all things Fourex and Tooheys, just to name two of their vast range). A lot of press has been from the hard core, hard nosed craft beer drinkers being disappointed that one of our leading indep...

Moa

Well the Bledisloe has been run and won again by the All Blacks. Too big, too strong, too fast. But it was while having to throw back a tin of the very interesting tasting Tui Lager as being on the losing end of a bet with a Kiwi mate, that I realised that us Aussies get to have the last laugh, we have the better beer. The term “interesting” is used more in a politically correct way here, the edit...

Coopers 62 -revisited

Over the Christmas holidays we caught up with family at a restaurant called Kobe inside the Townsville Casino. This place looks the goods, an interesting entry, flashy table ware and napery. But despite all the promises and the way the place looked, it ended up being a pretty pedestrian meal. I know that I have much better steak meals elsewhere; this probably wouldn’t even hit my top ten list. It’...

Mildura Brewery

I like Australian-isms, I really do. I have a tendency to use sayings, most of them inappropriate, call people by names, and use a lot of rhyming slang for things. I was even trying to bring back the word “cobber” there for a while….till I heard KRudd use it whilst being interviewed. But it was this that made me stop a few years ago and notice the beers from Mildura Brewery, one of their reg...

Blue Sky Brewery Packaged and Keg Beers

It’s funny how sometimes you over look things that are in your own backyard. I’m a bit of a shocker for it really. I can tell you that I’ve visited some of the great cities of the world, marvelled at the Sistine Chapel, spent time on the canals of Venice, and lived out of a mates flat in London. But I’ve never been to Ayers Rock, I’ve never been to Broome, I’m yet to see some of the most magnifice...

Beer Types

My how things have changed. I remember when I first started sneaking into the back bar at the Centenary Hotel for a beer. Those days it was pretty easy, it was VB, XXXX or Gold on tap. It made it a little easier to not get busted. Gone are the days of only having XXXX Bitter or Gold on tap, these days you ask for a beer menu. And, the beer-toff in me, think it’s for the better, especially if you t...

Coopers 62 Pilsner

“Just because you are the tallest pigmy in the tribe it doesn’t make you a giant”. The way I interpret that saying is that no matter how good you think you are, there will always be someone out there better than you, so be a bit humble. Those words sprang to mind when I tried this week’s Drop, “Coopers 62 Pilsner”. This is an epic fail from a brewery that often performs better, what were they thin...
