March has now come and gone. Brewsvegas 2016 was great. I was a bit unwell in the middle of Brewsvegas but had a great time and got to a handful of events. Looking forward to 2017, only 48 weeks to go right?
As far as new beers went, March was another bumper month filled with big boozy beers.
My favourite new beer of the month though, was without a doubt the Founders Backwoods Bastard.
Aged in bourbon barrels, this Scotch ale brings a huge but smooth booze kick with vanilla, dates and toasted coconut. As the beer warms up the flavours change in with the booze dropping off a bit and the other elements coming through a bit more. A real sipper of a beer, pretty sure I sat on this for two hours. Will buy again, it was delicious.
A few notable mentions.
Evil Twin - I Love You With My Stout and Soft DK.
Lastly, Batch 2.18 from 8 Wired.
Enjoyed this with a few other Brisbane beer bloggers over the Easter break at a bottle share/balcony session. Lots of dark fruits, bitter chocolate and vanilla. It's my kind of beer.
We're in April now, and I'm excited. It's still really easy to find new beers to drink, love the Brisbane Beer scene right now.
Thanks for reading, and as always, drink well.
