Dropped past Jetty Road after getting petrol yesterday and found these. I'll be keeping the 1988 for a couple of years, but the 4-pack of Infinite 8 will be broached in early October...

Oh. And I was chatting to the guy at Jetty Road (muffled, but understandable) and he reckons they took a keg of the 1988 down to Jimmy Rum (2 doors down) and he's distilling a whisky for them from this. I certainly would be interested to try that out - I'll have to email James to find out whether it worked.

Sounds like some very nice things happening down there on the peninsula 🙂

"…Your finger is on the pulse.  We distilled a barrel of Blakes Russian Imperial Stout..Called - JR2

Its sitting in a small barrel and awaiting Blake to say he loves it and to bottle it.  Will maybe release with the next batch of Imperial stout…watch there socials, as it will be their release and maybe a bit of fun promo for us"

I'm salivating, just thinking about it!

Got an email about this yesterday - currently awaiting delivery. Two of my favourite things - beer and truffles! To be honest, I've always thought that Scotch Ale was a bit on the sweet and caramel side, but with a bit of truffle added...

This is a great mid arvo drink, it’s like a delicious peach/apricot iced tea with 6.0% of special effects thrown in 😄

Have gone off experimenting lately, also Coopers aren't stocking their Lager so am quaffing Coopers Dry, it's wet and refreshing and doesn't seem to be full of diswashing liquid and/or ammonia so that's all I'm doing, 4.2 percent and 45 bucks a carton :)

LOL. My homebrew comes in at around 12.5%, so these are just light beers as far as I'm concerned.

I just figure I'm too lazy to open a second bottle - so may as well make the first one worthwhile!

Foster’s, the beer brand “that helped put Australia on the international map” is being relaunched by Carlton & United Breweries.

In a media statement over the weekend, CUB said that Australian customers were looking “for a return to trusted iconic brands” and announced it would be boosting production of Foster’s Classic by 300 per cent in the coming months, from 500,000 litres a year to just over 2.5 million litres.

I think I had a couple of cans back in the 80's. Of the standard Aussie fair from back then, I think the Melbourne Bitter was the only one that had a bit of flavour. The rest were sort of soapy and flavourless. In fact, the old XXXX 0.5% tasted better than most of the ones with alcohol.

 

Admittedly, in Darwin (as the 80's turned to 90's) we used to drink stuff like VB by the slab. simply because you were sweating the fluid out at about the same rate you were sucking it down. I got picked up once for a breathalyzer after having a dozen - and blew 0.07 (NT limit was 0.08 at the time). You just didn't get that sozzled (and your pores were very clean 😁)

Introduced to Joz at a Show GTG  at his place several years back... Rocket fuel.(you arrived after it was drunk)

They did at one stage do a Hazy which hit the scales at 15.7% and you could get it in Chapel St at the Beer Shop.

 

There's a thread on Imgur about it.  They were asked why 15.7% and not 15.9% like most  breweries do if pressed.

 

 

They're lazy(the other breweries) but in our case the testers couldn't talk straight or indeed stand straight so we capped the XP at 15.7%.

 

Don't care whether it's true😜

 

Great story😎

Fosters was always a bland beer and making again isn't going to improve it.  I get that people want to get back into those traditional beers from back when travelling interstate meant drinking different beer, but most of the modern incarnations of those classic beers have all been reformulated to drop the alcohol content and push them into a lower tarriff.  So they taste different to that classic taste anyway.

 

VB / Melbourne bitter / Fosters / Carlton Draught / Crown Lager it was near impossible to tell the difference between them back in the day.  The original XXXX was pretty easy to pick as was Swan but the CUB stuff out of Melbourne I am sure they mixed up the vats occasionally and nobody ever noticed.

Why do people bother with  that XXXX Gold or Fosters bog water, when you can buy a 6 pack of these for $18.50 at Dan's.

Maybe they should re-release Dinner Ale.

 

I am a fan of the Sheaf Stout - makes a nice change from drinking Coopers in winter.

Too right I remember as a kid, watching some of my uncles over Xmas sharing long necks of DA, poured into a "seven" - 200ml glass, whilst "the women folk" would take a shandy...Tooth & Co..

 Same here.

I have very fond memories of sharing many a longneck with my dad, talking about Rugby League, politics and the world-in-general. It was always Reschs, either Dinner Ale ( DA ) or the Pilsener. His initials were DA and he reckoned that the beer was nicknamed after him.

 

If anyone wants this beer it is  available via Amazon with free delivery for Prime members, so I have ordered a case and will see if it measures up to the memories.

 

Edit: The price is $53.95 per carton (cans) with free delivery.

It's surprising to me that the Pilsner was the one that survived - my failing memory thought that good old KB was more popular (we used to call it Kids Beer - in the gold tinnies).
