The ‘Jiffy Squid’ New England IPA from @mpbrewery is the perfect Friday night beer.

Juicy, hazy and irresistibly smashable - make sure you get a chance to try it before we drink it all.

There is one ticket left for our last Rare Phew of 2017.

If you’ve participated before, you’d know that the Rare Phew bottle share is a great way to try some hard to find beers whilst meeting other beer enthusiasts. We’ll be opening up these bottles at 7pm, Wednesday. 20/12.

Featuring a 2014 Trappistes Rochefort 10 Quadrupel, the Beer Geek Wedding IV Barrel Aged Apricot Sour from our mates at Belgium’s Brouwerij Alvinne, and a 2014 Hargreaves Hill Russian Imperial Stout - this selection proves to be a classic example of beers that get better with age.

Ticket available for purchase at the bar.

You‘d be forgiven if you thought that ISG stands for International Squat Gang, but it’s actually the name of @shenanigansbrewing’s latest release, the India Session Grisette.

Packed with a squad of your favourite hops (Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe and Riwaka) this is a refreshing farmhouse ale that will add some much needed funk to your life.

We’re pleased to welcome these sexy new additions to our bottle list. Fresh from @van_dieman Brewing in Northern Tasmania, these three Australian farmhouse ales bring the concept of terroir to beer. The brewers have used hops and barley grown entirely at the brewery, and have fermented the beers with yeast indigenous to the local area.
.
The Edward is a fresh and bitter hop-forward farmhouse ale. The Max is a delightfully thirst-quenching spring saison. And the 2016 Hedgerow sees locally foraged berries added to 1, 2 and 3 year old French Oak Barrel Aged sour ales, which have been blended together for a funky sour hit.
.
With only one case of each, these won’t be on our list for long.

The only thing that needs to be sweating today is your beer glass.

Come in and cool down at the Phew. We’ve still got a heap of Australian wild ales from @lasirenebrewing on tap to treat your tastebuds.

Today’s favourite is the Ekuanot Single Hop Saison. The Ekuanot hop provides flavours of melon, lime and papaya - which fit perfectly in a clean and crisp Sunday session Saison.

Introducing our next Rare Phew! This one is limited to 5 tickets. Kicking off on Wednesday December 6 at 7pm.
•
First up, we’ve included a sentimental treat; the Two Metre Tall Farmers Resilience & The Seven Year Itch. When the Huntington’s embarked on their wild ale brewing project back in 2008, the Australian drinking public wasn’t entirely ready or receptive. Instead of giving up, they let this batch sit and mature for seven years. The result, is a complex and mature wild ale. An iconic piece of Australian brewing history.

HORAL (HORAL is a Belgian acronym for the ‘High Council for Artisanal Lambic Beers’) are a group of Gueuze producers that promote and protect artisanal lambic beers. The 2015 Oude Gueuze is a blend of young and old lambic from nine member breweries; including 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans. Having a chance to share this bottle is an opportunity you don't want to miss.

Last of all is a very rare treat, and one of the most sought-after stouts in Bell's history, the 2014 Black Note Stout. Bell’s have blended their complex Expedition Stout with their velvety smooth Double Cream Stout, before ageing the beer in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months. The result captures the finest features of the two beers and the bourbon barrel: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso & dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of bourbon.

One of the fastest movers during last weeks Fruit Fest event was @brouwerijkees ‘Strawberry Fields’ Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.

Brewed with milk sugar and a load of strawberries; this drink is just like a chocolate milkshake, only beer.

We’ve got these babies sitting in our stout fridge, ready and waiting for you. 🍓🍻😘

If you like getting caught in the rain on your way home from work, well hooo boy - do we have the beer for you.

The @bucketboysbeer and @australianbrewery collab “If you like Piña Colada” is a hazy and juicy New England Milkshake IPA.

Packed with tropical flavours and offering a creamy mouthfeel, you’ll quickly forget about today’s gloomy weather with this little can of sunshine.

Fruit Fest 2017 is happening this Saturday and Sunday.

We're excited to be tapping three beers from Gothenburg's @duggesbryggeri.

Lovingly imported to the country by Bitter Phew's Frida and her partner Brendon as ‘A Couple Importing Dugges/ACID’ - you'll be seeing these beers pop up in the coolest beer venues around Australia this summer.

Cool, calm and collected..... that's definitely not how we would describe this beer. @hopdogbw Superbeast barley wine 2017 is dripping with 6 hops, 6 malts and bouncing in at a respectful 10.4% abv. This powerful demon is the first time ever on tap and now pouring at Bitter Phew.

Cheers Legends! (📷) @spectrumsupreme
