    Dear Craft Beer Drinkers

    Dear Craft Beer Drinkers

    I was expecting to make a thread about your terrible beer.

    But I've just had an Epic Pale Ale and OMG. Wow.

    I may have to drink more craft, I quite enjoy Monteiths gold , Heineken , Export 33 and Carlsberg.

    Recommend me a craft beer.

    I had some Tui Golden Lager tonight. By some, I mean 7 handles. Reminds me of DB Draught.
    My favourite craft beer I've ever tried would have to be a Yeastie Boys which I can't remember the name of a few years ago. I think it was an IPA. Tasted like honey.

    ^ Tasted like honey? Can't have been Rex Attitude; that shit is foul. Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta is decent, a bit different than your usual.

    I think I'd remember the name, but looking at their current range I don't see it. Must have been seasonal. Had a definite hint of honey to it.
    Edit: I suspect it may have been Her Majesty 2012

    ^ Have had all of those, and personally reckon the Garage Days one is the best.

    The Yakima is nice too; how do you think it compares to the Citra?

    Can't say I've had the Citra but I will certainly change that soon.

    Swazi, you'd like the new Panhead "Canhead" Oaked Stout - it's lovely.

    I thought Lakeman was ok last time I was back in NZ. But most of the NZ brews I've tried have had a weird chemical taste - I can't handle it. Anyone else notice it? Maybe describe it as bitter, but not noticeable on the first sip gradually accumulating to become unpalatable halfway through a glass.

    Got a oldish pic here with some of the stouts I liked and some others...

    That Moa is 10.2% great after ten pints of bitter!

    It's sad they watered the moa down, I miss the 11%+ days on that one. Then Moa's corks started failing(became impossible to find a carbonated one) and then they changed the recipe.

    Oh the big champagne bottles of moa? , I've bought some of that Garage project in white cans
    with beer on them, I didn't get to try them though, left behind in the old mans fridge at the mount.
    must try some of the other range, seems a few like it here.

    Nope the 330ml ones. They used to all have corks.

    Anything at all from Garage Project. It is all amazing.

    BTW Fill up at places like Hopscotch (Auckland), Beer and Wine Co (Hamilton). They will fill a vessel and charge by the litre, which makes it cheaper than buying bottles. They tend to rotate taps on a weekly basis. I'm sure there are others around the country that will do this.

    Well if you are getting into craft beers most people seem to start off going nuts on IPA's then discover a bunch of other styles so here's some mostly ipas worth trying at least.

    NZ - easier to get

    8 Wired - Hopwired
    Liberty - Citra
    Liberty - Yakama Monster
    Garage Project - Pernicious Weed
    Epic - Armageddon
    Epic - Hopzombie
    Panhead - Supercharger
    ParrotDog - BitterBitch

    others.

    Ballast Point - Sculpin
    Ballast Point - Big Eye
    Ballast Point - Dorado
    Bear Republic Racer 5
    Coronado - Islander
    Modern Times - Blazing World IPA

    Plenty of others but that will do. Most of the beers from these Brewery's will be pretty decent really
