    Best Craft Light Beer.

    Fortitude Brewing Pacer is a very tasty light pale. Comes in at about 2.8% I think.

    Newstead Brewing Company - Brisbane

    Good food and good beer. I like the model of having their own beers and guest taps too.

    Brisbane BJCP Exams (Seeking)

    There's a few BJCP certified people in the Brisbane Amateur Beer Brewers. I'm not sure if there's currently anyone prepping for exams this year but it may be worth asking around.

    Sorachi Ace does taste like ants.

    Brisbane There's also good little bottle shop in Queens Plaza, in the city. They stock a decent range of craft beers and usually have a bit of variety.

    Brewski bar

    Dropped in last week. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a relaxed joint and a good beer. It's nice to have a decent reason to come to caxton st that isn't a rugby game.

    Iron Maiden Trooper Ale.

    For those of us in Brisbane. I've seen this one at Archive and Grand Central Cellars. The hardest part about drinking this beer will be deciding which album to play in the background.

    Stupid things you have done on brewday.

    Very first BIAB day. Wrapped up the urn in doona and walked away for about 10min. Came back to find a wet doona and puddle of wort on the floor. The doona had caught the tap switch and pushed it towards the urn which opened it just enough to start flowing. Clean up for that one took a while.

    QLD Beer Week 2013

    I had heard the grumblings about venues not wanting to fork out money to the organiser. I don't blame them really. Most of these venues already have an attentive and loyal following and can therefore do their own marketing far more effectively. It would have been nice to see one website that...

    QLD Beer Week 2013

    Booked in for the Brewin Transfer at Kerbside so far. And the homebrewers showcase at the Scratch. Here's hoping it's a slow week at work.

    IPA Recommendations?

    Vale IPA is another tasty drop that usually pops up around Dan's.

    Mudgee Ipa

    I've never had luck with Mudgee beers. On 3 separate occasions over the last four years I've had my hands on a few of their beers and they've always been infected. I'd still try the IPA but I'm starting to get low expectations with these guys.

    Whats In The Glass (commercial)

    I've been sitting on this one for the last few years. Used by was Feb 2012. It's mellowed out quite a bit. Lost some of the fruitiness and alcohol bite but still delicious.

    I read about a new bottle shop focused on boutique beer and wine that's popped up in Brissie. According to the Courier Mail it's been open for about a month at 196 Musgrave Road, Red Hill. I haven't seen anything about this place but it would be nice to have a Nectar-like shop again. Anyone...

    Little Creatures Next Single Batch

    During Qld Beer Week there was a LC brew event where a brewer from LC came up to Archive and we did an experimental brew on a 3V setup. He said they were using this as a chance to test some ingredients for the next single batch, which included a grain bill I'd expect to see in an amber/brown ale...
