BQ Tasting Notes

Mountain Culture Status Quo

This XPA is a laid-back easy-sipper! Made with 100% Australian pale malt and a juicy blend of hops. It’s a refreshing and tasty tinnie. Enjoy each sip with the balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Get into it.

Garage Project Bliss Lager

Brewery: Garage Project

Bliss, a state of complete happiness and harmony. You can find it in the most familiar of things. Sun, freshly cut grass, the smell of a BBQ - in the right combination even the simplest elements can elevate an experience to another level. Brewed with New Zealand malt and Motueka hops, Bliss is fermented cold and stored at subzero temperatures to produce a delicately crisp, clean, easy drinking lager. Simple, familiar things taken to a new level. Drink yourself more Bliss.

Kaiju Krush Tropical Pale Ale

Country: Australia

Brewery: KAIJU! Beer 

Style: American Pale Ale

ABV: 4.7%

A super-clean malt profile allows the shipload of juicy tropical fruit flavours to arrive on the desert island of your palate unhindered. And it comes in a can, so after you Krush it, you can Krush it.

After generations of KAIJU! interacting with the local flora, a new species arose. The FRUJUS found the balmy weather and laid-back pace in tropical climes to their liking, settling many remote islands, but always on guard for those who would seek to exploit their mouth-watering juiciness and impeccable balance.

Brewery: White Bay Beer Co.

Style: Australian Pale Ale

ABV: 4.5%

Our favourite pale. Sunny is comprised of Australian and Kiwi malts and is hopped with a heartwarming amount of Australian hops. Soft notes abound of passionfruit, citrus peel, pineapple, sunsets and good times. The bright days are here, welcome to the golden hour.

Brewery: Capital Brewing

Style: IPA - India Pale Ale

ABV: 5.8%

A big & bold Red IPA named after an old tree stump tattooed with an evil eye, once located on Lake George just outside the Capital. With a forward hop profile, it's full bodied, packed with flavour and aroma and has a balanced dry finish. We've used fresh Batlow grown US Cascade hops for extra hop kick. Best enjoyed in season.

Ballistic Hawaiian Haze DDH Pale Ale

Country: Australia

Brewery: Ballistic Beer

Style: New England IPA (NEIPA)
