4TH JULY

LATE WITH IT 

Very late with this post but better late then not at all. At the beginning of last week I had a day in Sydney and had a couple of fourth of July beers  . First of all I made an unscheduled stop at the CONCOURSE BAR because I couldn’t find the toilets in all the new construction at Wynyard station, had a LAZY YAK before walking down to BEER DELUXE at Kings Street Wharf. I thought that they where having an American event as it was the 4th but the only American tap beer was a schooner of SIERRA NEVADA HOP HUNTER IPA which was part of a lunch special and included a bowl of chicken wings for $15.00, not bad but the chook was not as good as Belles Hotchicken that I went a couple of weeks earlier. Considering that American IpPA’s are not my preferred style and Sierra Nevada in cans and bottles is a beer I would not choose over a lot of other beers, the version on tap was not to bad. There hadn’t been a great change of beers on tap since my previous visit and have been covered in my earlier post ; CHOOK, G. &.T AND BEER.  The beers where FRENCHIES BLANCHE ; RIVERSIDE SINGLE HOP SOUR; TWO BIRDS SMOKE”WEST SIDE STORY. I had a good yarn with Ben the beer guy, of Beer Deluxe while I was there.

I then dropped in to RED TAPE BREWING CO, which is practically next door, or is it called KING STREET BREWHOUSE? ,and had a PATIENT PAYSAN BIERRE DE GARDE 6,6% in a 330ml bottle which was which I thought was an alright saison though may be not the most exciting one. Not a cheap beer.

Off to REDOAK BEER CAFE for a POMMY BITTER ENGLISH BITTER 3.5%; BRETT-ON -THE-HIGH-SEAS, SOUR ALE 5%  ; CHATEAU SOUR 5% This one had a better nose, was much darker and more intense and very sour at the start, and was also expensive. I like Redoak, it is a nice place, particularly when it is quite, it seems to usually have a few English style beers as well as the sours which I  find appealing though I think but it would be an expensive exercise if you tried a wide selection of the beers.  My final destination will be in tomorrows post.
