:D What an awesome pub. I wish this was my local. The beer range was great and the staff keen to talk about the "special" beers that were on.

I was in today with a dude from work to introduce him to some real beers.

couldn't help noticing the "new" hand pump cask setup behind the bar.

currently has JS IPA flowing through it.having a chat with the bar girl about it and its only been in a couple of days.She pulled a butcher from it for a practice and gifted it to me :) .
It was fairly warm but had a much lower carbonation and smooth creamy mouthfeel(malt accented).

as an aside the JS IPA is a nice beer but it seems to lack a real bitter(base line) for an IPA and doesn't seem to be really to style,just my HO.

Hightail is still my fave on tap there.

get in and checkout the pump, its pure bar porn.

No fair!!!
:unsure:

There should be a law that you can't just sneak off to the Wheatie without reasonable notice.
Or at least that if you do, you can't gloat.
:p

Thanks for the info! Well I will certainly be in for my usual Friday beers tomorrow. Hopefully they get some more interesting beer into it. The JS IPA is nice but it would be great to see a real craft bitter poured from it.

JS Golden Ale is currently the beer on handpump at the Wheatey.

Checked it out Sunday evening during the Wizzy Lickers convention :ph34r:

Agreed there tangent, was quite flavourless in the glass and there was none of that Amarillo aroma to speak of, but I did finish it. I preferred the JS IPA when that was on pump.

Yes they are giving all their Ales a go on the handpump, which is what the barmaid explained to me when I asked her how the JS GA comes up when served that way....never really got an answer so I stuck to the conventionally served beers.

Rug munchers may be a term you are more familair with :) ...not that theres anything wrong with it

JS paid for the hand pump and that is why they are moving all the JS beers through it. I think everyone is agreed the IPA was the best of the bunch on the hand pump. For my taste they still have it a couple of degrees warmer than ideal.

Yah, read the whole thread, but didn't get it - sheltered life and all that. Rug munching, well, I understand that. Yes, sir... yes indeed.

I grab a moo brew wheat on the way home, even though it's takeaway the barman says "no takeaway price, same as over the bar" I'm too fukd to argue so I pay the $8 for a small stubbie of beer takeaway (only because i think it's a damn fine beer)
Then on the way out he gives me a moobrew coaster and says "look at the back!"
It states "Not suitable for boguns"

Maybe he should have showed the bloke with the mullet, wearing the blue wife beaters next to me, smoking a ciggie at the bar!
WTF!!!??? <_< :angry:

I'm looking more and more towards automated bar staff.

Does it possibly say 'BOAGuns'? Referring to the other brewery maybe?

Heads up.

Little Creatures Stimulus and Mountain Goat "Double" Hightail will be on tap from 4pm this Friday. On top of this they have the regular LC beers, Moo Dark :icon_drool2: and Pale, Lobethal Pale, JS Porter on handpump etc, etc.

I should be there around 4:30pm for a sample.
