adventures in craft beer in Perth and beyond

Beer + Toasties

My love of cheese is well known and this definitely, absolutely, 100% extends to toasted cheese sandwiches.

I bring this up because on Friday night Eagle Bay launched their Brewer’s Series Black IPA at Mane Liquor with toasties provided by Toastface Grillah.

Eagle Bay Black IPA: Available in growlers and $20 6pks at Mane Liquor, 237 Great Eastern Hwy Belmont

The Brewer’s Series is the seasonal release label for Eagle Bay which means this delicious black IPA won’t be around for long, on the upside it also means we can probably expect something winter warming to take it’s place.

Also on tap at Mane is the Saisonnay: Eagle Bay x Mane Liquor collab – saison aged in fresh chardonnay barrels first released November 2013

The black IPA is a lovely balance of tropical fruit and citrus hops alongside toasty and slightly chocolate malts. Fresh off tap the black IPA seems to have more pronounced hop aromatics. Whether tap or bottle this is definitely a beer worth seeking out, the dry toasty tropical fruit finish is genuinely moreish.

The launch at Mane felt just right for Eagle Bay, the two have worked together and supported each other for a long time so it made sense for me to have my first sip of Black IPA whilst standing inside Mane Liquor. Serving Toastface Grillah sandwiches was just outright genius and will make other sans-toasty shopping adventures feel a little empty.

... each were as tasty as the other, trust me, I checked ... ALOT
