    Not sure you're in the right thread

    It's a nice combo for a cold evening supping ale.

    I even used to make my own in small batches. Toasting coconut thread and steeping it in the brew.
    The oils from the coconut can reduce the amount of head if you don't carbonate but it is really tasty.

    taking feedback on board (which is what we adults do) while picking up my carton for the weekend, i also grabbed a sixer of something new to try

    Grabbed the Tuatara APA

    It's not bad, and i would like it a fuck of a lot more if it wasn't only 3 months from its best before. Tastes like Little Creatures. And that's not a bad thing.

    Tuatara do a great wheat beer and Pilsner. The others do better Pale Ales.

    If any of us go blind there’s no mistaking a tuatara with one of the others, I’ll give them that.

    Indeed. Very tasty. I had a heap of them at a long lunch around a year ago and just found it at the supermarket yesterday. It'll be a regular purchase if I can find one that doesn't cost $10 for a 500ml bottle.



  • Had the first meal I haven't cooked for myself in eight weeks. Mainly so I could get a 1.8 litre jug of Panhead APA and annoy my brother by sending him photo's. He did the same to me before Singapore locked down. Payback tasted good, but not as good as a draught beer

  • This week's rando 4-pack

    Revel Brewing Company IPA
    7.5%

    Fuck this isn't bad. Hoppy, fruity taste (passionfruit?) Which I don't mind as I drink bucketloads of Tropical Ale.

    Would definitely drink again, I bet it's amazing on tap. Will seek out next time I am in Brisbane.

    I still bought a carton of Hop Thief to smash over the weekend



  • I spent up a bit late last month and got some NZ imports

    Epic Hop Zombie - old school personal favourite
    Epic Love - something new I had not tried - good but not great
    Garage Project P.Weed - Old school personal fav
    GP West Coast Ultra - something new to me - fucking awesome
    GP Turbo Fuzz - New to me and it took some getting used to the heavy alcohol taste but I love it now.
    GP Fresh April - Delicious and have Fresh May on the way
    Behemoth(called Chur here) Drink For Yesterday VOL 3 - it was brewed in August and has 12 month bb but fresh must have been awesome as its still good after 9 months.



  • @mariner4life get on to Panhead Supercharger from uncle Dan's. Better than Tuatara APA(bit of an OG beer now and there easily better NZ beers we can get in OZ now.

    If you can get it try some Deek Creek. It's been turning up in Dan Murphys regularly. As has Good George in Squealer sized bottles.

    love Panhead beers, but I'm suss on NZ imports as they are always getting on a bit unless you pick it up as soon as it comes in

    Dans has been my go-to, but I've just cottoned on to how good the beer selection at First Choice is, and i have switched. Dans still better for wine though i reckon



  • @mariner4life yeah First Choice is my go-to but wasn't sure if they were up your way. I have started buying online for Garage Project as they now have an Australian website.

    I tried Hop Zombie and Armageddon when they were first released, and later at a tasting with Luke Nicholas, but too hoppy for my tastes.

    The big benefit to cans. Doesn't have the UV light issue like glass.

    Dans has been my go-to, but I've just cottoned on to how good the beer selection at First Choice is, and i have switched. Dans still better for wine though i reckon

    My Dan Murphy's is quite large and I'd estimate almost 70% of the footprint would be wine. Spirits would be larger than beer too.



  • I've finished the last 2 of those aforementioned beers

    Dangerous

    It tastes very good, has sessionability I reckon, as it's not heavy to drink. But at 7.5% kicks you in the head

    If you drink those side by side it's astonishing how much better the former is. It could be argued the Tuatara Pilsners are better than Panheads though.



  • @Bovidae never been a huge fan of Armageddon but ZOP is the first NZ craft beer I had over here and realised something serious was happening in the breweries there. I think ZOP is my number 1 beer. Can't drink lots of it in one sitting but it's still my favourite

    The Panhead guy used to be head brewer at Tuatara before he went out on his own. I guess he would have had to change some recipes that he would have quite liked and had left behind.

    Well given the opportunity to make a XPA, he did a good job.
