Beer

Need I say more!

Some venues and nice ones I've stumbled across recently.

Brownstone Brewery (Eumemmering (Dandenong)
Rusty Sailor, American IPA, 5.8%. put some hairs on those chests for serious IPA drinkers.

Hop Shop (Playne St Frankston)
Playne St Pale ALE, 4.2%, Aussie IPA, hoppy, fruity, mid-strength so you can enjoy more than one pint in summer, ...... Er. I think!

Hawker Hall (Chapel St, Sth Yarra)
Fury, 5.2% American IPA, not sure if it was the combination of food and beer but the beer was mighty fine!

If we can get enough geographic coverage we'll build a a suitable list of day trip targets!

My neighbours at Curlewis Winery also grow Cascade and Chinook hops.  Another neighbour, a surgeon, uses the fresh hops to create a range of excellent beers.  They are sold under the 38th Parallel Brewing label.  I get mine from the winery but it is sold in several outlets in Geelong and on the Bellarine.

38th Parallel Brewing is classed as a nano brewery so there's not a huge volume produced.  That's good because it means that the quality is maintained.

Blackman’s Brewery at Torquay has a good range of beers on tap and more than a few in cans.  I take a re-usable growler or two and get them filled ... and they have a loyalty card.

The venue has a good atmosphere and the food is pretty good.

I recently bought their light beer in cans from our local BWS.  It was full-flavoured and each can was one standard drink - easy to keep track when you’re driving.
