Product of the Day: For Hong Konger’s, The “Dave’s Dirty 2 Dozen Done Dirt Cheap” 24-Pack

***

The Tai-Pan Beer Co. is sourcing Australia’s best craft beers and ciders. First and foremost, they’re seeking out taste. But just as much of the taste of a great craft brew makes the beer, we like to hear their stories behind the beer – how they started out, what they’ve been through, where they’ve come from, we like the characters behind the craft. Oh and the beers we choose win awards – a lot of awards, it always helps.

Balmain Original Pilsner

balmainpilsner

DESCRIPTION 

The Balmain Pilsner was launched in November 2010 following the success of the Balmain Pale Ale. It’s a brew created in honour of the great old Balmain Brewery of the 1980’s, so fondly remembered by many for its Lager and Bock at the time! The re- launched Pilsner is in the style of a New World Bohemian Pilsner, with Motueka hops, as well as NZ Saaz and traditional Czech Saaz, which produce lovely herbaceous fruit driven notes in the aroma. It also has three different malts: Pale Pilsner malt; Caramalt for complexity and colour; and Carapils for biscuit maltiness. The Balmain Pilsner is well balanced with a rounded clean crisp finish, and is the perfect complement to seafood or on its own as an aperitif!

Alc/Vol: 4.5%

Holgate ESB

holgateesp

DESCRIPTION

Your new best friend. A long-standing favourite among beer enthusiasts and our most awarded beer. A classic earthy English bitter you meet in the pub and invite home for a round of snooker and darts.

Paul Holgate’s northern English heritage finds aspirited expression in this deep amber bitter. Served on a traditional beer engine at the Hotel and tap room in Woodend, the ESB offers depth and complexity that makes it at once challenging and eminently drinkable. One of the two recipes that launched the Brewhouse in 1999, it includes English crystal and roast malts, an abundance of East Kent Goldings hops and is enhanced through dry hopping with a touch of Aussie Galaxy.

Softly carbonated and served through traditional Beer Engine at 8-10 Deg C at Holgate Brewhouse, this beer is a great accompaniment with full-flavoured dishes, including beef, game and duck.

Murray’s Whale Ale

whalebeer

DESCRIPTION

Murray’s Whale Ale is a refreshing wheat beer with a twist. Its high percentage of malted and unmalted wheat and aromatic late hop profile gives a unique take on a session strength ale. A classic light body, creamy mouth-feel and refreshing citric flavour. This is balanced with assertive late hopping, giving a fresh, light tropical fruit aroma and cleansing dry finish. Murray’s Whale Ale is light gold in colour with the traditional cloudy appearance of wheat beers. Summer in a glass!

Alc/Vol: 4.5%

bridgey2 

DESCRIPTION

The Bridge Road Brewers Golden Ale uses all Australian pale malts and aromatic hop varieties to create the perfect Australian craft beer. Light malt characters combined with subtle late and dry hop additions result in a classic Golden Ale.

Alc/Vol: 4.4%

ABOUT TAI-PAN BEER CO. – TaiPanBeer.com

To put it simply, we’ve come together for the love of beer. Clichéd, yes we know.While other kids were running around with cricket bats and footballs we were sitting back and wondering what barley was made out of and whether the Easter bunny brought the best hops (boom!). We’ve come from 3 continents to make Hong Kong our home. We’ve spent time dodging darts in the old Globe, running for the Lamma ferry, trippingdown the steps of Elgin St, and we’ve been in Wan Chai when we shouldn’t have – and survived it all. Heck, we even remember when the cricket club was in Central (ok not quite). So whether you’ve been in Hong Kong since before ’97, have just arrived off the boat or have never left, come join us and try some of the best craft beers and ciders that the world has to offer…We’ve all been there – you walk in and see the same 5 beers on tap, the same 5 bottles in the fridge then think you’ll try something different, something where you finish the first sip and say ‘bloody hell, I like that’. Then our work is done.
