Sunday Beer: Defend the Galaxy

Kiwi’s walking a fine line between cheeky and IP infringement notice from Disney.

It says “all-Australian” but apparently that’s just the hops as it is brewed in New Zealand. Also, it is technically Monday morning here but it’s a public holiday and I drank this yesterday while studiously not watching the big sports match.

Thursday Gin

I was given as a gift a small (200 ml) bottle of barrel aged gin — that’s gin that’s been aged in whisky barrels. Damn — very nice but I suspect a decent whisky is cheaper.

Sunday Beer: Chocolate Fish Milk Stout

If you know any New Zealanders you know they have a thing for particular junk foods: pineapple lumps for example. Another treat likely to temp a Kiwi is chocolate fish — a fish shaped marshmallow covered in chocolate.

This stout attempts to replicate that by adding raspberry to the beer. I’ve had bad experiences with raspberry beer but this was quite nice.
