That full circle marshmallow beer is rock solid. Hard to find their beers up in Perth though. Where did you get it?

In the middle of a dry spell but think I'm gonna have to grab the new Eaglerock Best Coast DIPA and a Cheeky Monkey Australian IPA for future use.
Was sadly disappointed with the Aussie IPA. Its not bad bit doesn’t stand out like most of their range.

Currently obsessed with othersides Anthem after having it on tap at the Cott hotel.$23 a 4 pack is bargin too.

Just back from Adelaide and a reminder of what the tyranny of distance does to prices. Drinking pints of Mountain Culture cult juice for $12 and their Road to Nowhere for $13 a pint at a different bar. My son assures me SA pints aren't really pints but still cheap compared to here.

A pint in SA is 425ml which is a schooner is all other states and territories. An imperial pint in SA is 570ml which is equivalent to a pint in every other jurisdiction.

Think I've just about had my fill of big, creamy, hazy IPA's for a while, might turn my attention back to the future and look for bright, fruity, summery pales and lagers.

Have yet to really get into Pilsners. Any good ones ?
The GOAT IMO:

Last yeah Eagle Bay had an IPP(ilsner), Otherside had an IPH(elles), heaps of places jumping on the IPL(ager) too - my personal fave is the Beerfarm IPL, so good - so if you want a hoppy lagers just keep an eye out on the summer releases. Eagle Bay also do a great Kolsch (though that's an ale but stills a super refreshing summer drink). Mane Liquor had some Epic Brewing Pilsner tins on their page last week that they were spruiking as one of the best beers they've ever had - take from that what you will.

Craft breweries rightly jumping on the lagers for Aussie summer, will be even more this year for sure.

I remember drinking 500ml cans of Weihenstephaner out of the fridge for a couple of euro each at Frankfurt airport a decade or so ago. Had an impromptu little party with a Frenchman, a German and an Indian from Sydney, all with lengthy delays or waits between connecting flights. Made some good fleeting friendships over a few drinks and conversation. Used to be what booze was good for, propping yourself up at a bar next to a stranger and having a conversation, doesn't happen so much these days.

Chows table is so good!

Personally I think the two best breweries down south to grab a feed at are Beerfarm and Wild Hop. Beerfarm do an insane steak dinner night on Friday nights. Then Saturdays at the brewery is more american bbq and tacos and stuff like that. But the guys running their american bbq do some of the best brisket I’ve ever had. Wild hop food is quality and they’re beers are ever changing. Plenty of hazy IPA’s and that kinda thing pouring there. When you book you can book in to get the rotisserie chicken which I recommend for sure
