Its been a crazy past few weeks with plenty happening both good & bad. Unfortunately our store laptop was stolen a couple of weeks ago, as result a number of email trails have been lost.

In more positive news, we have plenty of exciting new beers hitting the shelves. Full details below.

As you know we like to lead the pack, being the first retailer in Oz to offer growler fills in store & now the first to discount them, with our growler fill loyalty cards in operation. While most loyalty schemes are exactly that, ours is pretty simple: Next time you come for a fill, you will be issued with a card, be sure to bring it back every time you fill & we stamp it, get 10 stamps, then you receive a FREE fill! This equates to a 10-15% discount, pretty easy & certainly worthwhile. After all, you can’t knock free beer!

Doctor’s Orders Pulse Belgian Oatmeal IPA
Many Sydneysiders may be familiar with Doc, as he hosts the Darlinghurst Taphouse Alestar sessions. He has been producing very interesting beers under the Doctor’s Orders brand, many of which are brewed at Potters in the Hunter Valley. This particular release is a Belgian style IPA. Brewed with Kiwi hops that provide a vibrant tropical fruit aroma & grassy bitterness on the palate, that compliments the earthy & slightly citric Belgian yeast, while the oatmeal provides a mellow, creamy palate. Overall a very drinkable hoppy option with a twist. Filling as we speak. If you don’t already have a growler, bottles are $15 each, while a fill of Pulse Belgian IPA is $25.00
