Flodge's Fabulous Beers - Beer of the Week commencing 29 July 2019
by Chris Parr
Beer of the Week - Pirate Life, Port Local Lager
"I think I'm Turning Japanese, I Really Think So"
For those of you who have been living under a keg shaped rock for the last week, you may be surprised to know that Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) has officially been bought by Asahi for a cool $16b. And for all of you craft beer lovers, you would know that Pirate Life are officially owned by CUB. Whilst we are not here to comment on the business decision to sell, we did think that this would be a fitting time to showcase the Pirate Life Port Local Lager.
This lager is a nice drop which is very palettable to the point where you can potentially forget how many you're having. It is an easy drink with Vienna and Pilsner malt and is described as being herbaceous, earthy, and super dry. You don't necessarily have to pair this lager with any food to enjoy it, nor would it go badly with anything from our menu but the number one pizza that springs to mind would be the Garlic Pizza. Especially on Tuesday nights when you can get it for $5 and play a good game of Trivia.
Be sure to come down and try it for yourself along with our ever rotating taps!
