Guys,

As I sit here, having put a solid days work in around the property, having treated myself to several brews this fine afternoon, I top it all off with a beer that I often reserve for the night cap of all beers.

Coopers Best Extra Stout.

I dont know about you lot but this has to be my all time favorite beer, It's not my favorite quencher or my favorite treat that I cant afford to buy every week, but it is the one beer that puts a smile on my face everytime I take a swig.

Bottoms Up.

Whats your special beer?

The local Brewhouse near me currently has some very nice beers on tap, though my favorite just ran out. It's "Black Betty" from Grumpy's brew house. A lovely brown porter.
There is a very nice IPA on tap there at the moment that is even better on the handpump..

Another is http://www.bridgeroadbrewers.com.au/bee ... -pale.html

I also am partial to a Chimay Blue...

Haven't been able to stomach too much of Coopers since they moved from Kent Town to Regency park...still reckon something happened to their yeast. About the closest they have gotten to what the beer was like is their "Vintage".

H.

Coopers Extra Strong Vintage Ale for me, the extraordinary price is worth it but alas makes it a rare special treat. :cheers:

well no secret here Emu Bitter :D
But I love Coopers Pale Ale also, again price doesn't make it a regular, but do brew some now and then, finding time for brewing is the hard part though
I can't drink Stout :dunno: tried a couple but just doesn't do it for me

My DH is an ex-professional brewer (or, maltster to be correct). His favourite is Emu Bitter. I prefer a nice dry cider myself. :cheers:

Like he needed any encouragement :P

For ethical reasons I only drink Australian beer so I couldn't drink EB if I wanted to.

As a "new" Australian I recommend you boycott EB Nocky :duck:

Steinlager and Heineken, I can't remember if it was Germany or New Zealand. I was the first one to finish my stein in the german beergarden, young and silly back then :cheers:

EB was Australian for 100 years, still made here, I would rather give my money to the Kiwi's (as they are almost an australian state :wink: ) than drink Carlton :fart:

Kiwi's don't own Lion Nathan anymore, the Japs bought it and it is part of Kirin now. Infact the only major Australian owned brewery in the country is Coopers, and they still sell beer in 375ml bottles.

I hate being expected to pay top dollar for a 330ml bottle of "imported" beer that was brewed and bottled in Canningvale :bat:

oh yes forgot the Lion got sold again, I love coopers but down here it is generally around $65 a carton, I get almost get 2 cartons for that, EB is still 375mm and keeps local west aussies employed :thunbs: so the more I drink the more I am doing to keep West Aussies Employed :D
I urge every dedicated West Aussie to do the same, Drink more and be proud of it :cheers:
Wow I might run for Government, what a sales pitch :lol:

Yep I agree, they make some fine beer as do "Gage Road" also form Freo, I especially like the "wahoo" a fruity ale with a strong passionfruit flavour but a bit expensive.

Of the Little Creatures I like the Rogers amber/dark ale as it is a full flavourd mid strength so you can drive home after having a couple at a BBQ and not as expensive as the pale ale.

Ahhh the Wahoo is local as well? I'm pretty sure they were giving away cartons of that on the fishing forum..

Yep, have had a few guage roads, used to love a redback but haven't had one in a while.

I used to have the odd EB, back when I lived in WA. You cant buy it here in the NT :dunno:

Gage Roads is alright, I dont mind their IPA, they are owned by Woolworths now. Woolworths use the Gage Roads Brewery to brew Platinum Blonde, you have probably seen Platinum Blonde in the Bottle Shop, thats Woolworths attempt at a beer. :ahhh:

I love just about everything that Matilda Bay put out, except Barking Flamingo :yuck: Rasperry Beer! Gross, Me and a mate are attepting a Fat Yak Clone soon :thumb:
