@ Brewski (Brisbane)
Sat, 19 Aug
10am - 11:59pm

Ratebeer.com is one of the worlds most popular beer rating websites with tens of thousands of users around the planet. Trophy hunters use it to tick unique beers off their list whilst other poo-ha it as a popularity contest. Take it as you will, you won’t argue too much with the gear that’s at the top of the list. We’re pretty stoked to have stockpiled a wee collection of the best of the best, according to Ratebeer, from Europe, the US and Australia. 100/100 will get you on tap (99/100 will probably cut the mustard too).

And to make the day even better, we’ll be serving New Orleans style Po’ Boys done three ways.

Stay tuned for the full lineup, but just to show you we mean business here’s a sniff…

1. Cantillon, St Lamvinus. Lambic Style, 5.0%, BEL (100/100)
2. Liberty, C!tra. IIPA, 9.0%, NZ (99/100)
3. Prairie, Bomb! Imperial Stout, 13.0%, USA (100/100)
