well--if you have met Alvin before you shall get an idea why he picked this profile pic :)
here's the list written by Alvin:-
Renaissance - Enlightenment Series Sencha Saison
I love beer with tea infused into it. My first tea infused beer was the Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta Ear Grey IPA. This year Renaissance of New Zealand brewed this Sencha Saison as part of their Enlightenment series and it was awesome. One of those easy to drink beers and it doesn’t need to be overpowering in flavours and aroma. Everything was just right!
Maui Brewing – Mana Wheat Beer
A wheat beer which I do not mind drinking all night long! Traditional wheat beers are typically brewed with orange peel but this Hawaiian brewery uses pinapple juice and it give it a very refreshing aftertaste.
Southern Bay Brew Co – Vanilla Oatmeal Stout
This is one delicious beer. They brewed a one-off stout and cramped vanilla and oatmeal into. Which turned out to be a perfect combination of ingredients.
2 Brothers – Hazella Imperial American Brown Ale
Brown ales might not be the most sort after style of beer but this was different! Won 2nd at the GABS, Melbourne and the brewer was kind enough the hand us a bottle or TWO! Roast Hazelnuts and Ella hops from Tasmania. I can never say no to Hazelnuts in Brown ales.
Mikkeller 1000IBUThe name says it all! A beer with 1000ibu and it really tastes like 1000ibu. A small sip of 100ml will leave a lingering hoppy after taste which lasts for about 5 minutes! But as soon as the hoppy-ness leaves ends, you’d want to take another sip. Not for the faint hoppy hearted drinker
