Issue 47, Apr/May 2013

Stoke Bomber Smoky Ale

Full and flavoursome with a tickle of single malt on the nose and charred caramel and biscuit notes. A lovely match with comfort food, such as baked pasta with tomatoes, chorizo and mozzarella. ($9, 650ml)

Issue 47, Apr/May 2013
Brew Moon Amberley Pale Ale

This brew has soft malty aromas, a creamy, foamy head and solid, citrus lines on the finish. Enjoy with a rich and decadent meal such as pork belly with a apple and tarragon salsa verde. ($8, 500ml)

Issue 47, Apr/May 2013
Stoke Bomber KPA

This beer is rich, toasty and tasty. Cloudy, copper-coloured and classy with a lovely balanced malt flavour and a cleansing, refreshing finish. A perfect pairing with a crumbed bocconcini or anything equally as delicious. ($9, 650ml)

Issue 47, Apr/May 2013
Deep Creek Brewing Co. 309 NZ Pale Ale

This fresh beer with crunchy, hoppy characters will stand up well to a dish festuring oregano and lamb. Make sure you try the 309 while these balmy summer evenings are still around. ($7.50, 500ml)

Issue 46, Feb/Mar 2013
Deep Creek Little Armoured One American Amber Ale

Aromas of caramel, citrus and malt introduce you to this beer and the flavour on the palate leaves you with a solid hop-induced bitterness as a finish. A classic cheese burger to match would be just the ticket to pure enjoyment. ($8, 500ml)

Emerson Weissbier Cloudy Wheat Beer

Fragrant cumin, star anise, and biscuit aromas with a clean malty and magically mouthfulling length of flavour. This beer would be well suited to a dish that is bursting with flavour. ($10, 500ml)

Monteith's Brewers Series Apricot Wheat Beer

Soft spices & fresh fruity notes. This beer has a smidge of sweetness that will complement a creamy, coconut and ginger chicken curry. Delicious! ($6.29, 500ml)
