BEERCAST #54 - Range Brewing II

3M ago
The Border Barrel boys come full circle, celebrating podcast beer number 100 with a return to Range brewing! 12 months ago we embarked on a brewery showcase journey with the intention of learning about the great independent breweries of Australia (and a little bit of the world). Thanks to these legendary beer merchants we can now distinguish between certain hops and have fallen in love with new beer styles we'd previously (and foolishly) ignored. To honour beer number 100 of our unique rating system, we dive deep into the statistics to find our individual and collective favourites along the wa ..read more

Beercast #53 - Bacchus Brewing Co.

Simmo brought the goods for this week's episode, and 'goods' is absolutely the tamest way to describe it. Ladies and gentlemen, the first unanimous 5/5 in Border Barrels history now resides in episode 53 of our Brewery Showcase series. Although it sounds like we're thanking Simmo, all the kudos goes to QLD legends Bacchus Brewing! Despite being familiar with their work, we all learnt some crazy things about their history and work ethic. Some of the pioneer innovators in the Australian craft beer scene that we adore so much. It probably shouldn't be too surprising that the favourite beer of the ..read more

How did it take us this long? One of Australia’s favourite independent breweries finally gets their Border Barrels showcase episode, as 3 limited released beers from Victorian stalwarts Dainton are sampled on this week's episode. A GABs exclusive Choc Berry nitro sour kicks off proceedings. What follows are two absolute crackers, confirmed by our collective Untapped ratings. A collaborative anniversary 10 Hop NEIPA with New Zealand’s Bohemeth (Chur), and a rare (for us) black IPA, which is a roasty boy of epic proportions. Also included: Your usual shit banter and slightly interesting informat ..read more

Beercast #51 - Hawkers Beer

We should have known something was up when Hudson told us to organise lifts to the podcast this week. Upon arrival we were greeted to 3 of the BIGGEST beers in Border Barrels history, courtesy of Melbourne heavyweights Hawkers. Gratzy's heart is warmed by an obscure music reference for the Impending Doom Triple Hazy IPA. Simmo gets his Biscuits Broken for the second time, in awe of the delectable Biscoff Porter, while all 3 of us marvel in terror & anticipation at the FIRST Barleywine we've ever reviewed! Thankfully we didn't continue recording after we'd finished these incredible, booze-h ..read more

Prost! Boy oh boy, this was a fun one! The Border Barrels crew presents a very special OKTOBERFEST episode, sparing absolutely no expense with kranskys, sauerkraut, lederhosen, and EIGHT German style beers on offering. This fantastic journey wouldn't have been possible without Melbourne’s Burnley Brewing and their limited edition Oktoberfest pack. 8 beers, including 6 collaborations with some of Australia's finest breweries (yes, even Mountain Culture!) We all learnt something about our favourite German styles, shared stories of our own Oktoberfest experiences (with mixed results), and hung sh ..read more

Kickin' it old school style! Well, sorta. Simmo brings along some delicious brews from rising Marrickville stars Kicks, which includes the VERY FIRST Kolsch in Border Barrels history. More on brand are the Hazy and Cold IPA variations which are also sampled. We dig into the super cool can artwork to ignite our creative juices, subsequently ending with David and Margaret level observation of Christopher Nolan's films. How did one lead to the other? Much like Tenent, we have no idea. Thanks to Kicks Brewing for a tasty afternoon and The Lane Cellars for supplying the goods. --- Send in a voice m ..read more

Coffee vs Tea... An age old debate. But on a beer podcast? It can only mean one thing, and that's experimental brew time. For the first time ever, our Brewery Showcase series goes international, courtesy of a very special trio of limited release beers from New Zealand masters Garage Project. Ingredients we've never heard of are thrown into our podcast whirlpool, resulting in a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. A sour, a porter and a hazy fill the bill, but these styles only scratch the surface of what these beers actually present. Thank you to Garage Project, for allowing us to bring you OUR g ..read more

We hope you enjoy the letter B! You'll have no choice after this episode. Border Barrels. Beers. Brewery. Bridge Road. Beechworth. B2 Bomber. Bees! A stunning Spring afternoon was the setting for a very special showcase. Local legends Bridge Road were generous enough to supply the podcast with not one, but TWO yearly limited release B2 Bombers. These are mammoth beers, so you'll need to forgive the subsequent chaos that reigned. Thanks to Rhi and the team in Beechworth for supplying us with these beauties. https://bridgeroadbrewers.com.au/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spoti ..read more

Beercast #45 - Co-Conspirators

After a late winter sabbatical, the Border Barrels crew returns to the Not So Good Shed for a deliciously malty afternoon, courtesy of Brunswick champions Co-Conspirators Brewing. Unlike our usual offering, this week's tasting paddle isn't full of hop-forward juicy IPAs. Instead, we confirm what we'd been suspecting for a while... dark Lagers rule. Simmo’s favourite Red IPA of all time is another highlight, as well as a chocolaty Baltic Poter to bring it all home. We also have a look at the history of the brewery, some interesting statistics from their UnTapped ratings, and give credit where i ..read more

The final stop on our trek up Beer Mountain lands us at the West Peak hotel in beautiful Mount Beauty! We spent an afternoon tasting beers and shooting the cool winter breeze with our new friends at Mountain Monk Brewers. Punky, Mick and Steph talk us through the rich history of the unique venue, the origins of their beer journeys, and give us a preview of things to come with an advanced taster of their coffee milk stout! We felt as though we'd known these legends for years, which I'm sure will be quite evident throughout our conversation. Plus, their hypothetical beer and music festival line ..read more
