@Scotty T - if you get the chance, try MTB/Michael from CBR Brewers’ watermelon sour. It’s pretty special.

Just had this Blackman’s watermelon gose and enjoyed it.

@johnny that looks nice, will drop MTB a line and see if he can bring some to the next meeting.

I'm loving the Bentspoke Easy, but I think I like the Capital Summit Session better flavour wise. Bentspoke is cheaper and less alcoholic and has the cool cans though so it's hard to decide, I think I will just have to alternate.

This is probably better suited to the stupid questions thread but going to a BBQ on the weekend and as it's the wife's friends I will be the designated driver. So the question is, is there such a thing as a good light beer? Any suggestions that wont taste like a watered down corona?

Balter make a 'Captain Sensible' beer and I have always been fond of Rogers as a mid strength with decent flavour.

I see a Carlton 'Zero' advertised. Would be interesting but certainly don't hold any expectations. To be honest, if I'm going non-alcoholic it would be a ginger beer anyway.

Look for beers called session ales. They tend to be lower in ABV hence the name. Good bottle shops and of course dan Dan Murphy stock a variety. Personally I have never tried any so can't recommend any but I'm sure they'll be nicer than generic light beer.

Yes not a beer I would normally go near as I am normally at the other end of the ABV. Needs must though so appreciate all the suggestions.

I like dark beers, and reckon the citrus/fruity craft beers taste like cat piss ! Does shit me a bit when every farking bottlo has 50 different kinds of pale ale/IPA.

Recently had a four pack of Bootleg Brewery's (Margaret River) Raging Bull. Awesome, super tasty albeit pricey drop.

Had a Jindy RedX last weekend and loved it. More of an amber for my taste but a great beer none the less.

This!
Last day of mid-day mid-week drinking before back to work on Mon. Polishing off my last few.
My brother works for a few craft breweries around Sydney's inner west, and he tells me their Hazy IPA is the business, you should try it if you see it!

Shame to see a brewery pause operations. It's hard work, especially if you've other work to attend to. My best beer lately is my own, a IPA NEIPA bastard, or is the NEIPA just the bastard child we've become fond of? I don't go overly fruity on the hops and like some bitterness in an IPA.

Sadly as the beer becomes awesome the kegs near empty.

The next batch is a broody mid amber IPA, I'll dry hop maybe 75g of Amarillo into this on day 8 of fermentation. Should be a recipe to small batch into production one day.

Had a Wayward Juicy Boy pineapple and orange gose and a Boozy Fruit NEIPA from Big Shed yesterday post ride at Old Canberra Inn. They always have something awesome on tap there. Bummer about PACT, but I think they'll be back in one way or another down the track.
