Coorparoo – Archer BNEIPA 6.5%

Australia saw a lot of New England style IPAs release in 2017, with 90 percent seemingly using the words “juice” or “crazy lazy hazy Swayze” in the title. It makes sense, given NEIPAs are known for their juiciness and for looking like a hazy glass of orange juice. But, when ten Brisbane breweries join together to brew such a beer, they can be expected to bend the rules.

Thus it was that members of White Lies, Slipstream, Semi Pro, Helios, Revel, Newstead, Brisbane Brewing Co, Ballistic and Aether gathered at Archer Brewing’s headquarters to create a NEIPA with all the hops, but none of the haze. They called it a Bright New England IPA, or BNEIPA. And, since BNE is the abbreviation for Brisbane, as well as the airport code for Brisbane Airport (very on-brand for Archer Brewing), you just know they’re still patting themselves on the back for coming up with the name.

Portside – Croft Star Wizard Oak Aged Dark Sour Ale 6.3%

After many long nights searching the sky, the Star Wizard finally finds what she is looking for in the black abyss. It’s a fabled code that requires deciphering, but is claimed to hold the key to peace, joy and happiness. She thinks on the things that make her happy: music, family, eating, giving, friends, solitude, travelling, and dark beer. She wonders if any of these are the key. Excited by herdiscovery and exhausted from the journey, she takes rest with a richly complex, yet refreshingly quaffable dark, sour beverage. Tomorrow will be another long day, heading in the direction of the stars discretion, but for now the time belongs to her and her beer.

Black chocolatey malts combine with the Croft mixed culture (unknown quantities and varieties of Brett, Sacch, Lacto, and Pedio) with 4 months of ageing in ex-Chardonnay barrels. Earthy chocolate and pineapple aromas pave the way for upfront lactic acidity and flavours of spiced dark fruit cake, some Bretty funk, and background biscuit, toast, and oak. Whatever you’re searching for, this beer is the perfect way to celebrate the festive season.

Portside – Aether Roughneck Strong Pale Ale 5.8%

This isn’t a beer to add to the many bright, tropical pale ales around at the moment. Instead, it carries almost amber ale characteristics (though it’s still the shining gold of a pale ale), with biscuity malts carrying the laid-back hop notes of floral, citrus, and pine, with a touch of stonefruit joining in towards the end.
