Anyone had any decent sessionable darker beers lately? Last few cartons have been either Nail Stout or Boston Brown Ale but I can't find much else that's a sort of an everyday beer rather than a special buy two cans kind of beer.
Bad Shepherd Hazelnut Brown. Part of on the hops six pack at liquor barons. Impressed enough to grab it on its own. Likely more special buy than everyday.

Thanks mate, will keep an eye out. I've never heard of them before but that looks like exactly what I'm after. I don't mind dropping $90 on a carton of 24, it'll usually last me 3 weeks or so unless I have a big night.

Give Beer Farms new milk stout a go. And the previously mentioned hazelnut brown is really solid too. Also Eagle Bays cacao stout is about to hit fridges. It's a winter seasonal beer, usually followed by their black IPA which is also epic.

Thanks mate, will see if I can find the beer farm one. Love the Eagle Bay stout, not sure if I had a bad batch of the black ipa but it had a really funny flavour when I bought a 6 pack last year.

Been to Bull Creek Liquor Barons yet? Head there and ask Simon what's fresh.

There's cold freighted Toppling Goliath and Modern Times beers floating around from the States, Innate brewers canned their new West Coast IPA yesterday so that's as fresh as you can get, Prancing Pony have just dropped one as well, Beerland have Juice Harder in cans, The Fix by Fixation is beaut as well.

If you want to go further Cellarbrations Superstore in Hami Hill are having a huge sale this weekend. All taps and prefill 1L cans are $10 when you buy 3 or more, plus 20% off all single bottles and cans. Good time to restock the cellar.

I had a pint of Juice Harder a couple of months ago at Whitfords and I must say it had nothing on the original.

What are the better places North of the river? I know about Ashby Cellarbrations and Ocean Reef LBs.

Copper and Oak probably one of the best

Devine Cellars in Noranda is one of the best I've come across, I just don't go near there very often unfortunately

Have you been to Mane Liquor in Ascot? Pretty damn impressive selection - craft and international and have a bunch of taps for growers too.
Yeah have been once when I was staying in the city, got some awesome coffee stouts

Never come across it, any good? Their new place in Vic Park should be open in a few months
Very smooth but a bit on the boozy side. Worth a try. Looking forward to checking it out, should be great. My birthday in a few weeks and I think I'm gonna do a "Boston Marathon" and try and get through all their selection I can get my hands on.

The owner?

Doesn't mind a chin wag and is a bit of a close talker.
Just realised I made a mistake, confused it with Copper and Oak in Tuart Hill, which is a great little store but genuinely packed to the roof with selections which makes it feel very crowded.

Ah.

I thought you had also been cornered in Noranda and walked out with a warm carton after half an hour of nodding your head and trying to make your way to the checkout.
