Blind Leading the Blind #3 – Hefeweizen

Blind Leading the Blind #3 – Hefeweizen

Hefeweizen. The name conjures memories of eating white sausage, pretzels and a tall glass of Paulaner for breakfast in Bavaria. My mouth is salivating just at the thought of it.

Admittedly, this is still … Continue reading Top 5 of January 2015 – A Month in Review

Media Release: Hawkers Beer

I remember back to when I walked the Bridge 2 Brisbane back in 2013. After it was done, we had gone to a Turkish restaurant and I saw this beer called "961 Beer Lebanese Pale Ale". I remember it having a very interesting flavour, with the addition of thyme, sage, chamomile and various other herbs. … Continue reading Media Release: Hawkers Beer
