Depends on budget and who you’re buying for. Squires Hop Theif isn’t a bad cheap option if you’re buying for non craft drinkers although I reckon if you end with most of the slab you’ll be well over it by the end.
Looking like a pretty warm Christmas so I’d be looking at a Balter XPA, Colonial Pale Ale or maybe Kolsch Ale. Hell, you could even get the Bomber branded Colonial Kolsch tins.
Something special to wash down the Christmas pudding might be a Barrel Aged Stout, Founders CBS is being released tomorrow so you might be able to pick up a few somewhere around town. It’s only going into 3 specialty craft bottlo’s.
Not sure what side of town you’re on but I know Grape and Grain in Moorabbin will have them.
Boatrocker have just released this year’s “Fat Santa” Whisky Barrel Aged Imp Stout. Aged in Starward Whisky barrels. Comes in 500ml bottles so good to share over some Christmas Pud.
