Mikkeller Ten IPA
We all know Mikkel likes to experiment & teach his drinkers a thing or two. Such is his desire that he released a series of Single Hop IPAs, this particular beer is an amalgamation of his favorite 10 single hop releases. Expect an orgiastic hop feast with an onslaught of vibrant fruity hop aroma & resinous hop bitterness on the finish. Get in quick, this will be gone before you know it. Filling as we speak. If you don’t already have a growler, bottles are $15 each, while a fill is $35.00
UP NEXT: Prickly Moses Chocolate Ale

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!
