Bridge Road Brewers by Bling India Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Bling India Pale Ale by Bridge Road Brewers at The Mitre Tavern

Very hoppy, but fruity enough to give it balance. Not bad.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Narwhal Imperial Stout

Chris B. is drinking a Narwhal Imperial Stout by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at South Yarra

Exactly what you want in an Imperial. Rich, smooth texture. Robust beer. Coffee, sweet, malt, all there without dominating the other.

Kiuchi Brewery by Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout

Good stout. Coffee taste very strong as you'd expect, so need to be in the mood!


Matilda Bay Brewing Company by Lazy Yak

Chris B. is drinking a Lazy Yak by Matilda Bay Brewing Company at The Bridge Hotel

Was a bit generous on previous rating. This is drinkable but average.


Little Creatures Brewing by Dog Days Summer Beer

Chris B. is drinking a Dog Days Summer Beer by Little Creatures Brewing at Metropolitan Hotel

Pleasant summer beer but doesn't stand out like some of its Geelong mates

True Brew Brewery by Ginger Beer

Chris B. is drinking a Ginger Beer by True Brew Brewery at Maiden Gully

Like this as not too sweet. Ginger gets to shine.


Brookes by American Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking an American Pale Ale by Brookes at harvest

I like this. I see American and expect overpowering hops, but this is nicely balanced. Great venue too!

4 Pines Brewing Company by Brookvale Union Ginger Beer

Chris B. is drinking a Brookvale Union Ginger Beer by 4 Pines Brewing Company at Bendigo

Very refreshing. Very different. Alcoholic ginger beer. Why not!

Bandicoot Brewing by Rusty Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Rusty Pale Ale by Bandicoot Brewing at Bendigo

More IPAish than expected, but with a big picture of hops on the bottle then it was always going to be! Nice beer. Will have again.

Nomad Brewing Co. by Rosie's Summer Punch

Chris B. is drinking a Rosie's Summer Punch by Nomad Brewing Co. at Bendigo

Great out of a can in the sun at the Easter Fair. Tart as to be expected. Good for the category.

Independent Breweries by Fraser Briggs

Chris B. is drinking a Fraser Briggs by Independent Breweries at Maiden Gully

Nothing wrong with this for a cheapie and cracking name! Bit too blatant in terms of copying Boags.

Hawkers Beer by IIPA (2017)

Chris B. is drinking an IIPA (2017) by Hawkers Beer at Brother Burger and the Marvellous Brew

Very good. Full without overpowering, sweet without being too much. Caramel, yum. This beer made me sad to finish. Enough said.

Two Birds Brewing by Golden Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Golden Ale by Two Birds Brewing at MissChu

Actually at South Yarra Misschu, but not on list! Malty, honey, caramel is my kind of taste. Like this

Coopers Brewery by Original Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking an Original Pale Ale by Coopers Brewery

It astounded me when drinking this stalwart of my go to beers with dear friends that I had never reviewed it! As solid as they come!

Coopers Brewery by Extra Strong Vintage Ale

Chris B. is drinking an Extra Strong Vintage Ale by Coopers Brewery at Coopers Alehouse

Toffee edge. Good beer - doesn't quite shine like it could though. Almost special.
