Picked up two bottles of the new mountain goat cross breed. Haven't tried it yet but looking forward to it. Perhaps tomorrow arvo.

 

Also got a bottle of the Sierra Nevada seasonal beer "southern hemisphere harvest". Shared a bottle last Friday night and it was pretty good. Nice and hoppy.

I love it but even on special it is dear, ■■■■■■■ 65 and only gets down to around 59 when it is on special. Nice beer but. I've been on the fat yaks of late. Not a bad cheaper alternative to LC

Yeah sierra is noice beer aye

Any one tried a Tap King?

Not great value - probably more expensive than buying a carton but you can pour a beer straight from a “keg” in your fridge

It’s turning me into an alcoholic because I’m not over the novelty value of pouring your own beer!

 yeah in  the colder months i try and alternate my ales between Coopers Sparkling, BB 28 Pale, LC and Fat Yak. Only get LC if on special. In the warmer months i usually stay on Coppers Pale Ale.

'There‘s a lot of disagreement about exactly what role bappir played in the [brewing] process,' says Paulette of the Sumerian sourdough-like ‘beer bread‘, used along with malted barley in recovered recipes. 'We know it was baked, but trying to figure out how you can bake a bread and have enough of the yeast survive to get a good fermentation going has been a lot of our experimentation focus.'

Irish pubs are dangerous enough but imagine the fights in an Egyptian pub? Politics and religion anyone? Add alcohol and woooooshhhhh. Call the riot police.

My old man got one for a family thing at his joint. Was kind of cool for the novelty factor, but yeah, it's more expensive than slabs. 
They recommend you have it chilled/on ice for 6-8 hours prior to drinking also. 
The pouring mechanics were great. Had the James Squire Golden Ale and it was better tasting than a stubbie. 


#16

i'm loving these at the moment. also fat yak on tap is nice.
