    Re: Favourite Beer

    Anyone got any recommendations for a pub/bar in Melbourne's CBD or the inner suburbs where you can get traditional british real ales (preferably served unpressurised) or in the alternative locally brewed ales with similar characteristics?

    Looking for somewhere decent to take my dad for his birthday. He's from the UK and a fan of these types of beers. Good food I guess is a bonus, but is not essential. I'm not really concerned with price, just want to find somewhere quality for a special occasion.

    Thanks in advance.

    Give these bars a call and ask

    http://www.bierobar.com.au/ - CBD
    http://www.thelocal.com.au/MEL/ - St Kilda

    The guys at both these places could chew your ear off for hours talking about beer so just ask them what you're after, if they don't have it chances are they will know someone who will.

    I've not been there (have often planned to when in Melb), but the Royston in Richmond appears to have a hand pump beer engine. Not sure what's on that tap though.

    Yeah, they do. They rotate what's on it pretty regularly IIRC.

    Tried a fair few of the Pricly Moses range, from over near Colac. Ordinary and disappointing.

    Have recently liked:
    Grand Ridge Wet Hopped Oatmeal Ale
    Jamison Beast IPA

    Re: Favourite Beer

    yeah we got the free ones, Ended up getting pinched out of my fridge by my little brother, He then proceeded to say my beer taste was shithouse

    Right now im convinced that Feral Beer is probably the best thing in Australia,
    Sierra Nevada is also damn good for a Pale Ale, However Dan Murphys flogging cartons at 70 :/

    Re: Favourite Beer

    Looked at this last night!...most beers are 20 odd bucks for a 6 but you can get 24 for 60 or so if its a decent draft beer ect

    70 was excessive imo

    When Fat Yak is not as good but good for 50...im a student

    The thing that sucks is that Coles did honor the offer for earlier purchases. There was a hashtag going around, #OccupyColes, with a photo of a guy holding his reciept and slabs. Not cool :mad:

    What kind of wine drinking is not important, important is that mood is a kind of atmosphere, I like a man who has a cheap tattoo ink, the feeling of holding a beer

    Re: Favourite Beer

    Going to Tassie with some mates over new years and have come up with a concept, try as many local beers as possible.

    In fact ALL of them everyone i can find. M list currently stands at 40-42 depending on some seasonal varieties.

    Here it is:

    Seven Sheds
    -Elephant and Truck
    -Kentish Ale
    -Paradise Pale
    -razzamataz
    -Strac Raven Oatmeale Stout
    -Willie Warmer
    Van Dieman Brewery
    -Giblin Imperial Stout
    -Hedgerow
    -Little hell
    -Stacks Bluff
    -Jacobs Ladder
    -White Hills
    -Ragged Jack
    The Two Metre Tall Brewery
    -Derwent Real Ale
    -Forester Real Ale
    -Huon Dark Apple Ale
    Iron House
    -Pilsner
    -Pale Ale
    -Stout
    -Porter
    -Lager
    -Wheat
    Moo Brewery
    -Dark Ale
    -Pilsener
    -Hefeweizen
    -Pale Ale
    Cascade
    -Pale Ale
    -Stout-Lager
    -First Harvest
    -Blonde
    -Bitter
    -Lager
    -Pure
    -Premium Lager
    -Draught
    Boags
    -Pure
    -Draught
    -Premium Lager
    -Wizard Smith
    - Classic Blonde
    -St George
    -XXX Ale

    Breweries in Bold, i might try and shed some weight with the Cascade and Boags....but then that may be cheating?

    Re: Favourite Beer

    anybody noticing beer prices are really creeping up at pubs now. it is not uncommon for me to be charged close to 5 bucks for a pot (and that can be cd)

    i enjoy a beverage or many but golly gosh what are they doing to us beer drinkers back pockets!?

    The beer on the hand pump at the Royston is Holgate ESB. Great pub for craft beers.

    Beer unlike most things has stood the test of time on BF.

    When I was in Winnipeg and the surrounding parts of Manitoba, the Fort Garry product was one I enjoyed.

    Had Lagunita's Hop Stoopid Ale last night.

    ****ing ****. On first taste, too hoppy but became more downable over the evening. Almost too easily downable at 8%. Still ... a really good summer ale.

    Enjoying the Hahn Super Dry in cans at the moment. Full size 375ml cans, same price.

    Must be a summer thing. Catching blue swimmer crabs, cooking, eating crabs with an ice cold can from the esky :thumbsu:

    Also partial to a schofferhofer wheat beer. Watching the test cricket.
