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.

$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.

especially re salt and wood and La Mure. Had mixed feelings come back to NZ and craft beer - certainly seems to be more available than I left, but a bit disapointed that things seem to be a bit stuck on hoppy xpa's etc still.

I guess we're getting on the sour/farmhouse train now...? Yum, but. etc #something


what breweries in particular are you thinking of? there seems to have been a huge decline in the number of overly hopped beers in the last couple of years i reckon, tho they do still seem to be as popular as ever. if it looks like nz breweries are stuck on that i reckon you might just be shopping in places with limited selection outside of best sellers, there is more variety now than ever but bottle shops and supermarkets seem to be reluctant to stock some styles still.

Yeah you're probably right. Haven't had much of a chance since I've been back to go too deep

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.

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.

8 wired wild feijoa and hallertau funkonnay are probably my two continuous favourites
8 wired gypsy funk & palate trip
garage project - white mischief has been a great summer beer
funk estate - soul slap
choice bros - strung out on lasers
tiamana have had some amazing sours too, although im not sure where to buy them from bottled

actually most of the moa sour series is pretty good too, although i dont tend to buy moa often http://www.moabeer.com/sour-series/#moa ... eries-2015

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
