Hey guys,

I'm in Canberra this weekend and of course will be indulging in many a fine brew at the W&P. To the locals in the know, what seasonal's are currently available? I heard not long ago that their RIS would soon be on tap. Any word on this?

Also to all local AHB's I'll be around Saturday arvo and nite :icon_cheers: if anyone would like to drop around for a brew. I know it's short notice but would be great to meet some fellow HB's and enthusiasts.

Cheers,
Nate

Ahh the Wig & Pen... the reason I keep agreeing to work trips to Canberra! Heading back there again this week so will probably be there Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evening. Also keen to know if the RIS will be on tap.

....I might be there after a looooong drive from the Sunny Coast...
Good idea though you may have to get out of your car and start swimming if the weather continues as is ;)

I'll also be around Sun arvo for a few sneaky brews before the flight home. :chug:

+1, as I'll be there (in town) on the first Tues/Wed in June.

Just checked the Wig/Pen website, and it's no help on this question.

I was there yesterday, but didn't pay attention. Sorry. (actually the Brittish ale and the stout and , and) My mind was elsewhere.

Phone call to them maybe.

I was there last week. Had mainly APA's and IPA's as seasonals and no RIS. I asked when it was coming and was told Winter :blink:

Kabooby :)

That was the same response I was given in summer.

Hopdemic, Venom and Hophead at the seasonals on the board at the moment. The theme goes well with the fresh (chinook I think) hops decorating the bar. I forget which of the beers are on which tap at the moment and which of those are through the hop-back though.

The Hophead is running through the hop-back... delicious!

The Canberra Brewers Club had a brew day there last Saturday. We tried the RIS, and although I don't recall much past this point, I think Richard said 1 July for the release.

Yep, early July was the word from Richard.

Unfortunately I missed out on the RIS...July 1st is the release date as others have mentioned.

Nonetheless the beers were outstanding, esp the Hop Heads served through the Randall...delicious and ridiculously fresh. The Velvet cream stout I thought was well crafted as well.

Anyway I'm sure you Canbeerians will tell the rest of us how good the RIS is soon :p

...spent a bit of time with Richard during this last week and the RIS is sensational....coffee,dark fruit, chocolate and dangerously, despicably drinkable for a 10%er....a guy popped his head into the brewery while i was there and was keen to bring a bus load of Campbelltown brewers down to have a go....July 1 is right, and those who try it are in for a treat....fantastic...
