The Grifter - Serpents Kiss watermelon pilsner. this was weird af tbh, the beer itself was nothing special and the clear watermelon aftertaste was just odd. i wouldnt say it was good but i'd try it again as it did my head in a little bit tbh.
HOPE - west coast IPA - would get again, decent.
HOPE - fka mango sour - good as well. limited batch so probs wont see them again
3 Ravens - juicy NEIPA - alright. pretty inoffensive tbh. dont think i rate any 3 Ravens beers ive tried.
Nine Fingers - Smoke on the Porter nitro, idk really im only just sussing out what porters are
Barossa Brewing - Coffee Chocolate Stout - yeah not bad, lot of coffee in it. nice though.
Six String - Double Dark Red IPA - was into this, tasty

tried ton of others last month at a few breweries but honestly forgot most of them, the ones above were all in the fridge at home im slowly making my way through

If you're in Perth, new bar and bottleshop Besk is outstanding!

I went there for the F&F opening and their selection of natty wine and beer is exceptional.

I managed to pick up a couple magnums of the Wildflower 2018 collector series (which must've come from the Wildflower cellar and rare as hen's teeth); Picked up the 'WB' Pinot Noir 2018 and the St Phoebe 2018.

Also recently had the 2018 Cantillon Nath; let it sit for a bit, open up and drink around 12* and the rhubarb really shines through. Also opened up a 2016 Vignerone; outstanding and will let the other two bottles age for a number of years; the closest beer i've tried that's close to being an orange wine.

The Jester King Super Ultramega Hyperforce was interesting but failed to live up the expectation. Definitely got the salt and sweetness from the cantelope (although very little of the fruit flavour) and the tarragon was missing. Wouldn't buy again.

the black dog pales are ok - too hoppy for mine. the black ipa's are enjoyable.

i picked up one of those little home brew kits on sale in aldi a couple weeks ago. coopers brand. have a dozen longnecks bottled that will be ready to drink in about 5 more days. interested to see whether they are any good and whether i f’ed it up or not.

finished off the porters an stouts mentioned above over the past week as well - gotta go out and re stock the fridge now

been a bit quiet on the beer front the past few months... ordered one of those advent calendars to fix that
I’ve been buying too many beers lately, unfortunately for my wallet.

Ordered the 3Fonteinen August pack and got bent over on the proxy/shipping but looking forward to receiving it.

Also ordered a couple magnums of the Wildflower St Henry and a couple bottles of the Waratah.

Tried the Jester King Nightmare on Brett and Surette Rerserva, both we’re super delicious, a lot of funk on the nose. Nightmare on Brett in particular was bright. Their 2016 Spon was special.

La Sirene a The Beginning is the best beer I’ve tried of theirs, closely followed by the Vin Folie. I didn’t care too much for Le Funq.

Also opened up another bottle of Cantillon Rose De Gambrius. Unfortunately after drinking Cantillon, it makes you realise how far other companies have to go to make a wild ferment beer as good as theirs.

Hey guys, this is just a little something I have organised to try and help a few local breweries through this bushfire crisis. Basically, I have just started a little Go Fund Me to inject some cash back into a few breweries that have had to close their doors during a busy tourism period. I always try to support local and drink local, and this is just a small way to potentially help out some great local businesses.

Not expecting heaps from it, but if anyone was considering on attending or purchasing beers from these breweries (Bright, Blizzard and King River in particular), in the future then this might be one way to support them through a difficult period.

Had some of the extremely hard to get colab between Balter and Garrage Project the other day. Was decent enough without being outstanding.

Headed to Antwerp in 2 months can anyone recommend me some good Belgium beers to try? I tend to like pale ales but I also love a good novelty beer (had a honey beer with rum soaked raisins in Finland and loved it).

If you’re in Belgium, Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen and please bring me back as much as you can I’m your luggage.

Pretty, pretty please!

I’m really looking forward to the Wildflower x Jester King ‘Nothing Fancy’ release this week; two of my favourite breweries.

The GABS award is an absolute joke, not one Wildflower beer making the top 100 but all the large distro, large company owned breweries taking out so many positions.
