    Just a heads up for the Newcastle beer lovers
    This is the list of upcoming on tap beers at the Albion Hotel, a mate of mine is importing some really obscure Belgians and his first shipment of Troubadour in kegs just arrived.
    In spite of what the list says the Blond is going on this week, when we have killed that the Magma will follow, hopefully by Friday night as I plan to drink a lot of it. After that its the Obscura.
    I have tasted all three of these in bottle but this is the first time these beers have been on tap in Australia and Im really looking forward to them.
    What Rate Beer has to say: -
    Blond -88 (Ok its not really to style)
    Magma -97
    Obscura -96

    And people ask why we live in Newcastle...

    You bastards, you complete and utter bastards I get myself down there by 6:00 and get 1 glass of the blond into me and its all over dead keg.
    75 minutes later Im up for a third glad of the Magma screw you all its blown to. Seriously guys and gals slow the hell down, a keg of 9% in an hour and a quarter isnt reasonable and I was so looking forward to a long night.
    What do you drink after Belgian IPA, well fortunately there was a bottle of Tokyo Balck Horizon, which is really dam tasty, followed by a Tactical Nuclear Penguin which someone else sprang for (thank God) after that well its all getting very blurry and I was getting seriously pi55ed and did anyone get that 6 blonds phone number because no matter how good the beer was the blond was better and I seriously want one of those!

    You don't serve such beers in pints - each Belgian beer has its own specially designed glass.

    I would guess that they were middy size (425 ml) and were $9

    My introduction to pubs in Newcastle was the Bellevue Hotel, how things have changed.

    Yep, the old Bellvue (sp?) has since been closed, and not before time, actually.

    Shawn, I believe the locals have all been spoiled by the availability of the Murray's Grand Cru in town. As for myself, I was spoiled with a growler of the same on Christmas eve, and it was DEElicious!

    BTW, I tasted the OSH off the hand-pump in Balmain, on an AHB Easter pub crawl a few years back. Highly recommended.
