FROM THE BEER CORNER … OCTOBER 2019

Rocky Reed’s weekly wrap up …

4th October 2019

Things are really heating up, summer is just around the corner, and that means we all need to be taking our weekend refreshment very seriously. Beer, beer and more beer… and you can find it at Craft!

NEW ARRIVALS this week include OTHERSIDE BREWING Triple Harvest, Headliner Double IPA and Experimental NZIPA… an aptly named MR BANKS DDH Pacific North West IPA “In Bloom” … and FUNK ESTATE“Super Fly” NZ IPA and Purple Rain Blackcurrant Sour. BALLISTIC has also canned that ‘summer feeling’ and a trip down memory lane for those who have found childhood memories of being purple rain-stained from tip to toe, with a very refreshing Mulberry Sour. Also in store, Ballistic’s newest Sleep When You’re Dead release.
