Beer Reviews

We do new beer reviews around our usual blogging around general craft beer topics, and blogging about home brew. We try to add a new craft beer review at least once a month (in addition to our Beer of the Month), but sometimes more important articles get in the way. Or we’re too busy building home brew equipment or making new home brew recipes. Basically, yes, we write regular beer reviews, but there’s so much other beer related stuff going on, sometimes we miss it!

Anyway, we have quite the craft beer review archive to keep anybody busy for awhile!

Name: 3 Ravens 55 Style: American Pale Ale Country: Australia ABV: 5.0% Beer description: The first thing to notice about this beer is the aroma!  Pouring the beer a wonderful aroma immediately comes out, even at arms length.  It was a great beer to pour.  With this is an altogether hoppy beer, the aroma is more malt driven.  The beer […]

Burleigh Brewing Co 28 Pale Ale – Beer Review


Name: Burleigh Brewing Co 28 Pale Ale Style: Pale Ale Country: Australia ABV: 4.8% Beer description: Described by the brewer as “70’s style” pale ale, this beer is very traditional.  It’s refreshing to see a brewery attempt a standard but good beer.  Standard does not necessarily mean “boring piss,” and Burleigh have done quite well in making an old school […]
