  • More fizzy drink adventures

    This time intentional weirdness. A promotional “mystery” flavour. Vaguely citrus with a cream soda element, the colour of mouthwash. Essentially the taste you got when you were a kid and thought it might be amazing to mix two different flavours together and actually it was just disappointing.

  • Sunday Beer: Modus Future Factory IV

    Yes, another hazy IPA but a very nice one. A bit of a cut above some of the others I’ve had without being radically different.

  • Oh no, what am I drinking?

    The exploration of conceptual spaces is a vital role for this blog. One of these areas of inquiry is into the endless variation of lemony/limey flavoured drinks. Ironically, the lime-flavoured drink on offer today is America… Taco Bell Mtn Dew Baja Blast Yes, another odd American import that popped up randomly in a corner shop.…

  • Sunday Beer: Virtual Beer

    I thought Colt Barrel probably has his own craft beer brand (and also a brand of coffee beans). So I asked Midjourney to make me a picture of his beer can. It is interesting how puddinged it gets when there’s text involved. It was trying to make “Colt Barrel IPA” What I’m actually drinking is…

  • Sunday Beer: The Overlook NEIPA

    I’m not sure The Shining is an appropriate theme for a beer but what about the carpet from the hotel in The Shining? In its defence, the beer is from Katoomba which does have hotels with views over majestic valleys.

  • Sunday Beer: Strange Flux Hazy IPA

    From Hawkers Brewery in Melbourne: Tasty but basic hazy double IPA.

  • Sunday Beer: Australian Inland Ale

    Actual beer in an actual glass in an actual pub. The pub was in Paddington — not the bear but the posh suburb in Sydney. I mean, who knows, maybe the whole of Sydney is contained within Paddington Bear. Perhaps he contains whole universes. Short of putting the bear into a particle accelerator and letting…

  • Sunday Beer: What Rough Beast Hazy IPA

    I think this brewery is in Portland, so it must have floated across the Pacific on the back of a giant octopus to my local bottle shop. Nice but obviously not very different from lots of other hazy IPAs. Cool name but I was unable to make some sort of pun about Yeats and yeast.

  • Sunday Beer: Red Beard’s Captain Double Red Ale

    A beer from Penrith but not the Penrith on the way to Scotland but the other one on your way out west from Sydney. A limited-release beer from Rusty Penny Brewery. Nice nutty flavour. Quite strong but didn’t taste strong.

  • Sunday Beer: Pyramid Scheme

    Can a beer stop you going bald in your mid 40’s? The promotional text on the side of a can of Mountain Culture’s Pyramid Scheme beer says that it can! However, it’s closely followed by a disclaimer saying that it can’t. It’s actually just another hazy IPA but a quite pleasant one. My head is…
