Favourite New (to me) Beer - September 2016

Every time I sit down and go through Untappd, looking at the new beers I've been lucky enough to try I get reminded of how good the craft beer scene is in Brisbane. Literally a day doesn't go by where there isn't something happening. And event here, a new beer launch there, tap take overs, new bars opening, good beer is everywhere in Brisbane and it's just getting better.

Favourite new beer of the month for September 2016 for me was Boatrocker's Coffee Ramjet. I've seen this pop up on social media a lot and to be lucky enough to find a bottle up here was very exciting. Lots of dark chocolate and roasty flavours, with big coffee and whiskey notes towards the end. Thick mouthfeel made this a joy to sit and sip.

Oskar Blues - Ten Fidy was also an excellent beer. I've seen this one a lot on social media too, When I learned Oskar Blues beers were coming to Australia I knew I had to find them, and this one did not disappoint. I also learned it's called Ten Fidy because it's 10.5% alcohol, haha.

Brewtal Brewers - Double Kick is a local Brisbane beer. Everything I've had from Brewtal Brewers is smashing and the Double Kick was the same. Hoppy, bitter, piney, it was everything you'd expect from a double IPA.

Brouhaha Brewery - Finger Lime IPA, had this on tap at Beer InCider this year and it was delicious. The sweet tart flavour of the finger lime mixed perfectly with their smashing IPA. The good thing about Brouhaha is that they nearly always have a fruit IPA available, To me, fruit and IPA work so well.

Well that's about it for September. October is going to be an awesome month with a ton of great events coming up. Can't wait.
