Bitburger - I know I put this damn card somewhere

A mini concert celebrating Australian music. A race against Brisbane traffic. A car boot sale. A couple of sick children. A lost credit card. No it's not a terrible plot outline to a pilot episode of a tv series that will never get off the ground, it formed the basis of my weekend. How I ever managed to find time to sample a Bitburger (actually I wasn't that busy...) is anyone's guess..

Yes today we get to drop a pin in the Germany section of the website map (remind me to put one up) and in equally important news, I've just found my credit card. Under the keyboard where I'm typing this up. Silly me. Thankfully I was planning to cancel it at the end of today..

Wait, a car boot sale? Did you buy a car boot?: If you seriously just made that dad joke, sadly you're not the first. My good mate Brixey beat you to it and it wasn't funny when he let it rip the first time. (Actually you can read about the car boot sale misadventures right here!) Anyway on with the review.

Took a whiff, this is what I got: A vision of a busy beer soaked pub (no seriously, that's what I thought of when I took a sniff), slight spices and metal filings.

Initial thoughts: Nice looking head that doesn't hang about for too long. There's a sweetness to it but a medium level aftertaste of hops that's slightly metallic. It's refreshing.

Overall: By itself it's okay if you like this level of bitterness but it really excels with food (in testing I paired it with roasted chicken drumsticks). The bitterness that floats around after I wasn't too crash hot on but if you enjoy that kind of style, you'll enjoy this.

3 out of 5 lost credit cards.

Almigo brews a beer - Beer #2 The replicated/midnight pirate

It's been a while between (home)brews. After the thrilling success of the Citra Warrior IPA, this time I'm turning my attention to replicating a beer that went down an absolute storm when I tucked into it the first time - The Pirate Life Pale Ale.

But would my replicated pirate plunder proudly on the seven (beer) seas or sink before it even got out of the docks to cause mayhem up and down the coast? Let's find out!

Needs more (brew)dog

I'm walking around this week echoing Netflix hero Luke Cage's favourite expression 'sweet Christmas.'

And it truly is a sweet (few months early) Christmas after discovering the Brewdog reicpe book.
Suddenly I've gone from having no idea what to brew next to far too many suggestions in what to brew next..(It's a tough problem to have really..)

Almigo brews a beer #3 - The Bazweigan

A visit to the local brew shop, secondary fermenting and learning to love some pink looking powder. It's all happening here in our latest brew, a blonde ale just in time for the visiting Father in law...(That's of course him in the funky head wear..)
