Slow Beer

Thursday, September 08, 2011


So its been a while! Whats new you ask? Well, we've actually been very busy behind the scenes! As you can probably gather, we are in the process of getting our new website up & running, hence the new look emails if you see them. Its been a long time coming but we are pretty pelase with the result & know you will be too. Additionally, we have some very, very exciting news brewing but can't give too much away just yet. Its big, so keep your eyes & ears at the ready!

General catchup aside, the next few weeks will prove to be some of the busiest for new arrivals in a long time! Plus, the onset of some lovely Spring weather signals a move away from darker growler offerings & into big hop bombs you all love! Full details below.

Bridge Rd Galaxy Single Hop IPA 330ml $5.00
Back again this year & ever growing in popularity. Expect vibrant tropical fruit nose & grassy bitterness on the finish from Oz craft's fav hop.

Bridge Rd Stella Single Hop IPA 330ml $5.00
New release this year & partner to galaxy. Stella is a hop that is starting to gain traction with local brewers given its new world leanings but european noble lineage. Vibrant tropical fruit on the nose with a more herbally, bitter edge than galaxy. Reminded me a little of simcoe, which I love!

Little Creatures Single Batch Dreadnaught 500ml $6.00
The next release in the series & quite possibly the best yet. A foreign export style stout, expect robust bittersweet roasted malt on a light palate with more roast driving the finish. Everything you want from a FES.

Mountain Goat Seedy Goat Coffee IPA 650ml $10.00
Under the guidance of the team at Seven Seeds, comes this experimental brew. Clean & light malt allows the lightly roasted, fruity & earthy coffee bean character to compliment the hop bitterness. Perfect synergy between bean & hop.

8 Wired Sultan Belgian Quad 500ml $15.00
Soren can seemingly do no wrong with his releases. This is a Belgian style strong dark ale, brewed with an assortment of aromatic sugars & sultanas. Rich & slightly sweet on the palate, this brew is served well by the liverly carbonation of the style. A really great spin on a classic.

Haand Dark Force 500ml $12.50
Bigger brother to good force, this imperial stout is brewed with a high proportion of wheat in the grain bill.

Haand Odins Tipple 500ml $14.50
Big & rich imperial stout fermented with the brewery's wild house yeast for added quirky complexity.

Nogne O Imperial Brown Ale 500ml $11.50
Robust US style brown ale, nutty with caramel malt & a touch of roast & hop bitterness.

Nogne O IPA 500ml $11.50
US inspired IPA, caramel & toffee malt backbone with fruity & piney hop bitterness.

Nogne O #100 500ml $13.50
Amazing hybrid kind of beer, part barleywine, part IPA & a touch of porter.

Nogne O Underlig Jul 500ml $11.50
Festive ale, not too dissimilar to mulled wine. Brewed with all matter of christmas spices.

Nogne O Sunturnbrew 500ml $15.50
Barleywine style ale brewed with rye & bamberg smoked malte.

Adnams Innovation 500ml $8.50
Ripping little ESB/strong ale with rich malt & nice hop character. Very under-rated brew.

Brewdog Abstrakt AB:06 375ml $37.00
The next release in this series, a triple dry hopped black IPA. Slowbeer was lucky enough to score a few samples when Brewdog Martin was in town on a sneaky visit. All kinds of herbally hop awesomeness!

Brewdog Punk IPA Cans 330ml $4.50
Haven't you heard? Cans are the way of the hop fuelled craft beer future. Do ti!

Brewdog Tactical Nucleur Pengui 330ml $150.00
Its back, this 32% abv beauty of a whisky cask aged imprial stout on some serious steroids.

Brewdog Sink the Bismarck 330ml $200.00
Partners in crime, this 42% abv IPA is back too! Crazy is as cray does.

Mikkeller Green Gold IPA
We've been trying to keep our growler offerings seasonal but a bout of lovely Spring weather coupled with punter's seemingly unquenchable thirst for hop bombs, means this beauty is good to go. Like many Mikkeller IPAs, this is an American style. Exect rich caramel & toffee malt providing the backbone for which grapefruit, bitter citrus rind & piney hop character will keep you hop heads happy!

Filling as we speak. If you don't already have a growler, 2L bottles are $15 each, while a fill of Mikkeller Green Gold IPA is $35.

Up next: Hitachino Nest Japanese Classic Ale
