    Behemoth Churtz’s Insane Hazy Double IPA - damn, what a brew! My fave Behemoth to date. Absolutely huge in flavour and abv at 9.5%. These guys are fast becoming my fave craft brewer.

    Oh and it’s a collab with a Cambodian brewer, Heart of Darkness. I think it’s to do with Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, and Apocalypse Now, with Churtz being a play on the name of the insane Colonel Kurtz.

    Update; beer kicked my f**kin arse! Nice glow going on

    Heart of Darkness are Vietnamese

    Tried a couple when I was over there, like Kurtz's Insane IPA

    ^ Jesus! Scotland. “Don’t drink more than 35ml in one sitting” - is that what it says? It’s probably undrinkable, brewed for the sake of it. Try it!!!

    I had a Rochdale cider last night, Mojito flavoured with lime and mint. Very refreshing, easily sessionable, would be great on a hot day.

    It does say that, yes. I was reading on ratebeer that you shouldn't underestimate it, and share it with a few friends. I can't try this one, it's part of our beer library at work

    ^ Stink that you can't try it - i really want to know how gash it is

    It's like just because you could, does it also mean you should? Yeastie Boys Rex Attitude suddenly springs to mind

    I'd also be expecting a blowjob for that kind of coin.

    It's fresh hop season. Had some awesome ones so far.
    Baylands fresh hop hazy is good. Sawmill fresh hop white ipa is also yum. Alibi leaf litter was nice. Good George fresh hop was average.
    I heard the deep creek one is really good but I've yet to try.

    Deep Creek is good. Getting up there with GP as far as hoppy beers go.

    little creatures has opened in auckland. Can recommend their beers if you haven't tried them already. Big fan of their pale ale and IPA.


    Had a few of these over the weekend, pretty good. Not overly sour or sweet.

    I had quite a few Little Creatures brews when I was in Cairns, and didn't really rate them. Beers weren't any more flavourful than the likes of Macs. Have they got better?

    Monteiths is probably a reasonable comparison - their core range is pretty uninteresting, but they occasionally do some small batch interesting stuff

    Wouldn't go out of my way to visit them eh

    It's owned by Lion NZ.

    I wonder what makes craft beer "craft beer". I generally considered it to be beer made by a smaller non mainstream company (as in, not Lion or FB) and in smaller quantities, but it seems to be any beer that is a "bit different". Also, with lion/DB purchasing craft brewers like emersons, panhead, tuatara it makes it even more confusing. I guess the fact that they are still brewing their own stuff makes the difference?


    (I dunno why any of this matters, fwiw)

    Does it taste good? craft beer
    Does it taste like mass produced lager? no craft.

    Or something.

    I agree. I think because Australians are so bad at making decent beer, its probably stands out as one of their better ones.

    There are plenty of excellent Aussie brewers. Their good stuff gets snapped up by the local market though, so very little of it makes its way here.

    ::edit::

    By excellent I mean waaayyy ****in better than Little Creatures. It's the Aussie equivalent of Mac's or Monteith's.
