Fremantle Drinking with the Monk

The Monk tasting paddle

Fremantle is considered by many to be the birthplace of the modern craft beer movement in Australia as the original home to Matilda Bay (via the Sail and Anchor Pub) and of course of Australia’s most popular craft brewery, Little Creatures. Please note that I have no proof of the popularity of Little Creature so if you are one of those nit pickers don’t make a comment that you think blah blah brewery is more popular, or indeed that Little Creatures ownership means that they are no longer a craft brewery.

Gage Roads – New World Wheat Beer

Prologue: It’s that one day of the year where is celebrate all things American, like apple pie, torturing people and being fat and obnoxious. So I thought what better way to celebrate American Independence Day than with a great American Brew. But then we remembered American Beer taste like a mixture of vomit and urine. So instead we went to a brew from Gage Road. Now they were the brewing company that produced all those shit ads of bottles that looked like arses a couple of years ago but I was willing to give them a chance. Anyway the point is that a good old Australian company produces a beer with an American Flag on it, and that’s good enough for us for the 4th of July.
Appearance: Light, golden, bubbly, like San Francisco on a Saturday Night. So, kinda gay (I mean that in a happy way).

Flavour: Or possibly flavor being Yank day. Very Sparkly, almost Champagneisk, doesn’t taste at all like a Wheat beer, tastes more like it’s made from bubbles. (actual bubbles not Michael Jackson’s pet chimp)

Packaging: So American I wanted to go out a bash an Arab, hate a black guy and own a gun.

Food Suggestions: A sloppy joe, Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and Buffalo Wings with ranch dressing, so the entire menu of TGI Fridays

Possible Slogan:
Drink this or we will invade your country and kill your family

Ranking: Maybe just a Pot.
