Nice. Glad other people know of and appreciate it as well. La Mure was honestly my favourite NZ beer of 2016.

That's a lot of sours I should have gotten in on. I'm all about wheat beers, and especially sours. Fuck.

Hmm. Know any NZ breweries other than North End that do a lot of sours off the top of your head, J? I'd be keen to order a bunch from somewhere online if possible.

$10 for 4*440ml cans! great memory phil. I never liked beer until i tried an ardennes sometime in my early 20s. its not all fancy round here tho, ive probably had more kingfisher strong cans this year than any other beer so far.

i remember, cos at that time i didnt drink bourbon and coke, and you and/or Al had left a couple in Chrissy's car, i tried, and i think failed to drink one, i remember that it just tasted awful to me.

ironically was drinking woodstocks when i posted the above... what have i become?

my most commonly absorbed beer is haagen these days, haagen strong or kingfisher strong, and the tall haagan green cans, two strongs and a sixpack is a decent nights drinking i reckon.

either that or a 6pack of coopers stout, i would prefer to drink the good shit, but honestly, its quantity over quality for me.

Thanks a lot. I agree the 8 Wired feijoa sour is really very nice! I got a few of those from Glengarry on Hutt Road. There's a surprisingly good selection in that place... I love sours that are actually sour - was very disappointed by Funk Estate 'Jungle Boogie' Blood Orange Sour, and a lot of the chardonnay barrel sours or whatever they are for that matter, but I'm always keen to try another of Shiggy's creations. Panhead Fruit Loop was delicious but I only managed to get 1 bottle of that. I will be seeking out a few of these for sure. Thanks again.

Tried Brothers cherry sour the other day, it was ok I guess, but for a sour/cherry beer it was really disappointing, really bland

Sure, but I thought if they bothered to do a sour they'd make it a liiiiitle bit sour.

Nothing worse than a bland sour. Valhalla took La Mure off tap because not enough people were buying it. "Too sour" apparently. At Punkfest he was selling 'snakebites' for cheap which was La Mure mixed with cider to tone the sour back a notch. Cracked me up.

I had a couple bottles of 8 Wired's Hippy Berliner. Strong citrus smell and flavour. After taste of pineapple maybe. Pretty zesty. I thought it could be more sour, but the sweet to sour ratio is good. Would buy again.

Drank two tall boys of Coopers green in the sun athe dog park after work today. I hate the dog park, the regulars have an odd social click i have no interest in. I want my dog to socialise, i dont feel the need to do so myself. So i drank beer with my house mate and talked about exchange rates. TRUE STORY. interesting? No. True, yes
Was the beer good? Oh my, very much so

Going to be in NZ in a few weeks for a wedding, planning a night or two in Wellys to hit Garage Project and wherever. Then over the water for a few weeks in Nelson for Marchfest and heaps of fresh-hopped beers. Super excited, the NZ beer scene is revered by the Melbourne one, it's all pretty cute. And much cheaper :)

I consume Coopers on a regular basis. I was unaware of their ties to christianity. Generally ones religion doesn't phase me much as long as they aren't forcing it dogmatically upon others. It would appear that maybe Coopers deem certain behaviour unethical. I would like to meerly point out, that i regularly indulge in unchristian behavior, and quite often in a drunken stupor caused by Coopers products themselves. OoOOOh the irony.

i love coopers stout, its a fucking fantastic beer, a good percentage, excellent flavour and body and cheap price.
the other coopers are good, but they have sediment in them, which means you have to decant into a glass, unless you are an insufferable fuckwit, and roll it on the bar or a table first, ...what the fuck dude.

oh yeh, not beer, but i bought a 4pack of macs mead the other day, it was as good as any homebrew mead, which is to say, not really very good.

most people seem to think mead is a spirit, cos a lot of beekeepers make honey spirits, but whatever.

anyway this macs stuff could do with some spices, its a bit plain.

You should have a blog doing beer reviews phil, that was a well rounded, straight to the point review. I could almost taste the mediocre mead myself

Having a Steamer Basin Wakame Pils.
Interesting flavours going on, it was good with the laksa I had for tea.
I got it from the Dunedin Farmers market - super small scale. Will drink again.
