Through the year I made a few extra comments on the beers. Here’s the ones from January.
Day 5. A limited release from Bridge Road. A Pilsner that had a nut flavour! It’s a good one.
Day 6 was a very limited Double Hightail from Mountain Goat at the brewery. Good, but can’t drink all night.
Day 7 was a Pepperjack. Owned by one of the “Big 2”, but made in small batches. Which is probably why it tastes so good.
Day 8 was the Dark Ale from White Rabbit. Still get confused when I order this at a bar, and still get a pleasant surprise when I start drinking it.
Day 9. Queenscliff Ale. Was expecting more flavour, but the stake I was eating with it blew it away.
Day 10. Look out it’s a Whale!
Flying Horse for the rest of the week. Today, the Whale Ale.
Day 11 is day 2 from Flying Horse is a Lager. Not bad, not great, just meh.
Day 13 was Wollaston Wheaty, Day 14 The Savage Seagull.
Wheaty = meh
Segall = mmmm
Day 15 was a special limited brew from Red Hill.
Day 16 is a Mildura Lager. A lager that has good flavour.
Day 17. Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale. Fruity and good.
Day 19 is Bridge Road Celtic. There’s a reason Suze likes this one. It’s good. Real good.
Day 20 was a special from Mountain Goat. Tasted like banana!!
Day 21 kicks off a run on Red Duck. First up a good strong IPA.
Day 22. Red Duck – Pale Rider. Okay bitter beer.
Day 23. 2 Borthers – Taxi. A pils you can enjoy.
Day 24. Red Duck – Overland. Great on a hot day.
Day 25. Mountain Goat – Skipping Girl Summer Ale (cucumber and mint). Odd, but refreshing.
Day 26. Bridge Road – Australian Ale. Something to drink for a few hours.
Day 27. Red Duck – Hoppy Amber. For those who want a very hoppy amber beer.
Day 28. Red Duck – Pale Ale. Run of the mill pale without the fruit.
Day 29. Red Duck – Burton. Great bitter beer.
Day 30. Bridge Road – Galaxy. Sour IPA.
Day 31. Red Duck – Porter. Just what you want in a porter.
