Red Hill’s Scotch Ale

Red Hill’s Scotch Ale

Red Hill is a brewery that grows it’s own hops on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. It produces a core range of European style beers that are all about sessionability and accessibility. Don’t go looking for some 100+ IBU IPA’s. What you will find are Belgium strongs, Christmas beers, Pils, a stout and wheat beers. […]

New Belgium, a new way, and a Fat Tire.

New Belgium is the third largest craft brewery in the United States, which considering the craft beer boom is a high accomplishment. What makes this even more impressive is the structure of New Belgium and it’s origin story.  Named by former husband and wife team, Jeff Lebesch and Kim Jordan after a cycling tour of Belgium. […]

Echigo Pilsner

Japan is not really considered craft beer heaven for many people but there is one brewery that has been trying for quite a period now, Echigo. Echigo was Japanese first Brew pub, established in 1995 and had difficulty gaining notice from a Japanese public used to crisp super dry style lagers. Today’s offering, Echigo Pilsner was […]

Dogfish Head Review

This is the second of two Dogfish Head beers I have tor review, here is a hint! Yup there you go, Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch. Midas is named after a real dude who ruled over current day Turkey about 2,700 years ago. When his tomb was discovered in the 1950’s a large selection of drinking vessels, […]

Stone Smoked Porter

If Dogfish Head is a brewery for off centred people then Stone Brewery is a brewery for people who like something a little bit more extreme. I have written about the extreme marketing techniques used by Stone before especially regarding the Arrogant Bastard Ale but regardless of what you think about that, the beer itself is […]

Today’s beer is Mann’s Brown Ale.   Mann’s is a traditional British Brown Ale at […]

2 Metre Tall Huon Dark Ale

This is the second of two reviews of the Tasmanian farm brewery, 2 Metre Tall. You can read the previous review here. The Huon dark apple beer is something that is definitely new to me in terms of flavour and style but hey that is part of beer adventuring, the uncovering of new styles or ingredients to […]

Two Metre Tall Forester Farm Ale

Tasmania has a rich brewing history but you couldn’t say it is leading the charge for craft brewing in Australia. The Two Metre Tall Company is one that is trying to catch up in the race. A genuine Farmhouse Brewery where Ashley and Jane Huntington grow the wheat and hops used in their beers. Ashley has […]

Blandford Flyer

Hall & Woodhouse who operate the Badger beer brand started making beer in 1777 according to their website. Today’s beer, the Blandford Flyer is named in honor of the fly fishers from Dorset. This beer claims to come with a twist of Ginger which can add some character and in the legend of beer is used to […]
