Brick Lane Stereobreaker mini episode

Brick Lane have teamed up with the Victorian members of Pink Boots Australia to create this limited Stereobreaker Rye Pale Ale. And we were fortunate enough to be sent a couple during Melbroune's Lockdown 4.0!
 
What a ripper of a beer, well done to Emily and the team! Wonder if that's Emily's profile rocking out on the label??
 
And even though it's only a mini episode, we were also able to sneak in a little experiment at the end...does a previously shaken up beer look and taste the same as a non shaken up one? The results might surprise you...
 
 

Mildura Brewery Special

Victorian lockdown 4.0! Luckily Dave had the chance to get up to Mildura Brewery just before Easter, and we managed to record this brewery special just before everything in Vic went pear shaped again.

Have a listen to hear about the brewery, their beers, and even a history lesson about Big Lizzie (if you're not sure what Big Lizzie is, you sure will after listening to this episode!)

 

We tasted 7 of their beers:

Sunlight Light
Pilsner
Honey Wheat
Mandyweizen
APA
XPA
IPA

Big Drop Brewing Mini Episode

Another mini episode of Aussie Beer Explorers has arrived!
 
Now this one is interesting, featuring two ultra-low alcohol beers from Big Drop Brewing Company.
 
At only 0.5% ABV these beers are definitely a talking point with the flavours not wavering due to the low alcoholic content.
 
The beers we sampled were:
⁃Paradiso IPA
⁃Galactic Milk Stout
 
Click on the link in the bio or search for Aussie Beer Explorers in your favourite podcasting app.
 
And by the way, excise is not charged on beers with an ABV of less than 1.15% not 0.5% as mentioned in the episode.
 
 
 

Hops To Home May 2021

May Hops to Home podcast has arrived!
 
Crikey with 2021 over a third of the way through we’ll be hearing Mariah Carey belting out “All I want for Christmas” before we know it.
 
This episode we were taken way back to the 1980’s and 90’s staple Saturday TV show for many Aussies as well as a classic Australian Film.
 
Can you guess which beer these two references are relating too?
 
The beers we sampled were:
  • Super Juicy New England Pale Ale - Hope Brewery
  • Valhalla Pale Ale - Valhalla Brewing
  • GONGIM RIPA - Bodriggy Brewing and Hops to Home
  • Blood Sacrifice KVEIK Red - Tallboy & Moose and Hops to Home
  • Black Days Black IPA - Bonehead Brewing and Hops to Home

Brick Lane Belgian Mini Episode

A few weeks ago Brick Lane were kind enough to invite us to a zoom drinks with Brick lane's head brewer John Seltin and CEO Paul Bowker. Along with a few of our friends from the podcast/media world (how we got entry into that group we'll never know!), the guys from Brick Lane introduced us to two very unique beers.

They sent us a couple of extras so we could sneak out a mini episode, have a listen and hear what we thought!

  • Guardian Belgian Triple
  • Morning Star Belgian Dark Ale

Definitely a different path for Brick Lane, thanks guys for the opportunity, we look forward to what you next have in store...
