yep, enjoying the scotch ale right now. But as long as it was cold and wet it would probably do the trick.

The Mussel Inn might be the closest thing to it. I definitely think this should be done. I'm still looking for sloes (blackthorn, Prunus spinosa) in NZ, so I can make sloe gin.

no, they are like sloes, and are a cross between blackthorn and perhaps boxthorn..?

the 'sloes' are more elongated like a hawthorn berry, tho i doubt thats what they are crossed with, otherwise the plant looks the same as blackthorn, most farmers call it boxthorn, tho its visually different.

saw some pictures of sloes online that had the same shape, figured it was just a variant, made sloe gin, got very very sore guts for all it tasted nice.

hmm, different families, so I don't know if it would be a cross, or something else. There are a whole lot of thorny bastard hedge species in NZ, and many have fruit.

well i saw and collected them from maramarua to the hills above raetihi, some call it blackthorn, but i think the flowers a bit wrong too, i cant remember now, when i collected i knew it might be a hybrid, but thought it would be fine, not aware of any of that species being toxic, i suppose i shouldnt discourage you, but i did get crook guts, maybe just too astringent.

I reckon the Pilsner is one of the best in NZ at the moment!

i tried their scotch ale and the 'galactic ipa' yesterday, both were excellent.

fuck i drank a lot last night.


I'm slightly biased but the Sprig & Fern Long Black IPA was/is delicious. Just moved to Scotland so am exploring beers around here - any suggestions welcome.

My mates drink at the sprig all the time, because local. I don't find it that interesting.
I had one of those brew dog 15% barrel aged stouts in the weekend, that was bloody delicious.

Also I like the forum upderp thanks J

Will have to hoon some of that lemonade when I get back to NZ if it still exists, some of them limited releases sound pretty good too

According to untappd I've now tried as many different Italian beers as I have NZ beers

Not too big on hefies. Had a few in summer (mostly kristall) but been more of a lager lout the last 7 months. I'm broke as fuck atm so mostly drink 80c Sternburgs. €4 for a good time.

Dog B I'm pretty sure.
The liquorland in Palmy has a solid selection.

Anything else good come out recently? Beer Jerk has been underwhelming this month.
I did like the Renaissance Abundance Cherry Baltic on tap, but it's not quite as good in the bottle. I'd recommend sharing it, but it's a bit sweet/rich to drink solo.

I want that Hellbender, but it's getting hard to find, and I don't want to spend that much on a style that I'm not an avid fan of. Nice selection though
