December 10, 2013 by 250 Beers
Exactly one week from today, six taps at Tippler’s Tap in Newstead will each flow with a beer collaboratively brewed by Bacchus Brewing and six Brisbane-based beer bloggers; the Bacchus Beer Bloggers Series if you will.
I’m lucky to count myself as one of those lucky bloggers in what is undoubtably an Australian first. It’s quite possibly a world first for half a dozen bloggers to have had a hand in brewing six beers for commercial release. I’d be telling lies if I said that I wasn’t excited about the culmination of our brew day efforts. I mean, this kind of crazy shit doesn’t happen every day.
I’m not just busting to sink a few glasses of my beer, Hair of the Blog – a 9.6% imperial IPA with theoretical 250 IBU*, I’m really looking forward to trying the other five too:
A Brisbane Porter from thewestbender.com
A Flanders Rosella Ale from drunkenspeculation.com
A Passionfruit Pilsner from whatbeertodrink.com
A Hopfendunkelweizenbock from chasingale.com
A Bacon & Maple Imperial Russian Stout from brewsandbacon.com
If you’re free next Tuesday evening – 17th December – come on down to Tippler’s for what promises to be a great evening of great beer! It’s a non-ticketed event so what’s stopping you?! Sign up to the event on Facebook by clicking here.
See you there!
*a sample is currently being tested at the Milton Brewery for an accurate IBU reading.
