March 20th, 2014

The end is Nigh

The Hopocalypse is coming! In fact, it's here!

As mentioned in last week's email; today only we have the 2013 and 2014 vintages of Four Horsemen of the Hopocalypse on tap, side by side. To help you make the most of this rare opportunity, you can grab a 150ml serve of both vintages for just $11.

Just cos we can, we've also got two vintages of Ballast Point Victory at Sea Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter on side by side with the same deal applying.

So come get some!

Blackball Tuesday

Beer Without Borders kindly imported a few single kegs of special beers just for us in their last shipment from Denmark.

One of these was Blackball Porter from To Øl, the guys who were once students of the famous Mikkel. Blackball Porter is their take on the recent Black IPA craze, although they prefer the term hoppy porter: "Black IPA? No way! Hoppy Porters is here to stay!".

Blackball is pumped up to 7.1% abv with the help of dark cassonade sugar, then assaulted with lashings of US grown hops (Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade to be exact). According to To Øl the result "does not leave the mouth voluntarily".

Grab some on tap this Tuesday from 5pm.


It's Ramen time again this Friday night! Asher and Tsubasa will be taking over our kitchen & creating delicious noodley delicacies from 5pm till about 8.30pm.

If you're after something a bit different next to your bowl, they're now offering a mixed pickle plate including pickled; shiitake, fennel, daikon, carrot, celery, onion and also some kimchi.

If I wasn't in Nelson for Marchfest I'd totally be there getting my Kimchi Noodle bowl on.

Navae Saturday

The Carlos Navae Quartet will be providing sensual entertainment of the latino jazz variety, this Saturday at 10pm.

Their music always inspires a lil' bit of salsa dancing, making it a fun night even if you're just there for a beer.

Get here by 10pm to join the fun, and as usual, this gig is free of charge.

New in the Fridge

Lovers of Rodenbach Grand Cru should get a kick out of De Molen's interpretation of the Flemish Red style, Lief & Leed.

Lovers of local beer will be pleased to hear we now stock the entire Panhead range in 330ml bottles. You can now get your fix of Quickchange XPA, Super Charger APA, Blacktop Stout or Port Road Pils whenever you want.

If you're after a sweet gift or a neat gimmick at your next dinner party, we've got 5L cans of Rogue Yellow Snow IPA back in stock. For obvious reasons, these cans are only available for takeaway.
