May 2013: a round-up…


June 3, 2013 by 250 Beers

33 new beers found their way down my gullet in May. If I had made it down to Good Beer Week in Melbourne or even GABS then no doubt that total could have been quadrupled. Perhaps.

However, seeing as though there is no race to be run and my unique beer intake is just that – mine – then I shall be content with my 33.

Slightly awesome is that 25 of the 33 were Australian beers. With the exception of Foster’s (4.9%) they were all rather nice. The other 24 were as follows:

Temple Brewing’s Scarlet Sour (4.0%) and Oatmeal Stout (5.9%), Temple Scarlet SourStone & Wood’s latest incarnation of Stone Beer (7.2%), Stone & Wood Stone BeerSail & Anchor’s Imperial Stout called Jack Tar (9.5%) which you can read more about here, Red Hill’s Belgian Blonde (6.5%), a couple of O’Briens Gluten Free beers – Pale Ale (4.5%) and Light Lager (2.7%), a rare breed from Mountain Goat – Stout FX (6.7%), Moo Brew’s Belgo (4.5%), Wee Highlander (6.7%) a scotch ale from Mad Brewers, Holgate’s Red Hill Belgian Blondecollaboration with Nogne Ø – Half A World Away (9.0%), Feral Brewing’s Tusk (9.8%) which was simply brilliant, Burleigh Brewing’s Duke Helles (3.5%) and no carb Bighead (4.2%), Bridge Road’s Chevalier Saison (6.0%), Bling Bling Imperial IPA (8.5%) plus the collaboration with Mikkeller Dark Harvest (6.6%) Bridge Road Mikkeller Dark Harvest 2013which was another stand-out beer, Bowral Brewing’s Pigs Fly Pale Ale (4.6%), Bacchus Brewing’s Caledonian Porter (3.8%) and Festival Mild (5.0), Original Golden Ale (4.4%) Moo Brew Belgofrom Fortitude Brewing (consumed at the launch), The Australian Brewery’s The Pilsner (4.8%), Black Forest Imperial Stout (8.0%) a Keller Door release from 4 Pines. Last but not least is Hop-X (3.0%) from 4 Hearts Brewing. I say not least because of this.

The remainder of the pile looks like this:

Badger Golden GloryBadger Golden Glory (4.5%) by Hall & Woodhouse in England, Evil Twin’s Hipster Ale (5.5%) from the USA, Evil Twin Hipster Alealso from America was Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale (6.6%), Fruli Strawbeery Beer (4.1%) from Belgium which tasted like my mums strawberry jam, two beers from Norway by Haandbryggeriet – Dark Force (9.0%) and Norwegian Wood (6.5%) and, lastly, two beers that I won’t be rushing back to try again – a pilsner from Germany called Hansa (4.8%) Fruli Strawberry Beerand something that resembled a lager called Phoenix (5.0%) from Mauritius which I only bought so that Mauritius could appear on my beer list!

Oh, before I forget, there’s no shitty graph this month. Sorry.
