Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus

For those who’ll be in Brisbane tonight, there’s a little event happening at Brewski featuring four of Brisbane’s own beer bloggers. I’m one of them, and I’ll be saying a little something about why I blog. Problem is I haven’t written anything in months! So, to ensure that I’m taken seriously as a proper blogger, I’m knocking together…

Dieu du Ciel! Derniere Volonte

I found this little bottle of Dieu du Ciel! Derniere Volonte hidden in the back of my fridge when I was cleaning it out the other day.

A day with Deschutes

Aussies have recently been blessed by a flood of US beers hitting our shores, most of which have not (officially) been seen down under before.
