We’re bringing a taste of Sydney’s Northern Beaches to the hustle of Oxford Street.

Fresh af tins from @modusoperandibrewing are now available on the hallowed Bitter Phew bottle list.

Their Sonic Prayer IPA is our recommendation for this summery Sunday arvo. Packed with a load of New World hops, you can expect a refreshingly bitter bevvy with flavours of passionfruit and pine.

First things first, it’s the realest.

@littlebangbrewing’s ‘Fancy’ Farmhouse Ale, co-fermented with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes will have you reconsidering your career in the Murda Bizness and dropping down to Bitter Phew to taste this gold.

But it’s not actually gold. This bad bitch pours a classy purple and tastes fresh af.

People will be talking about this beer all the way from LA to Tokyo. So, make sure you try a bottle before we blow through all our stock.

Rare Phew is back for 2018. This bottle share will be taking place on Wednesday the 24th of Jan at 7pm. As usual, tickets are able to purchase from us at the bar.
.
Brouwerij Rodenbach released their limited edition Alexander in 2017, and we’re curious to see how it’s holding up after 12 months in the cellar. An absolute hit when it was available on our bottle list, Alex is a blend of a two-thirds 2 year old sour beer with a one-third 1 year old young ale that has been macerated with sour cherries.
.
Jester King beers are notoriously hard to find in Australia, so it’s very important to have a try of a bottle whenever anyone is cracking one open. The 2015 Das Wunderkind! is a blended Saison. JK have used the old-world method of ‘Bière de Coupage’ whereby a young dry-hopped mixed culture beer is blended with a mature beer that has been aged in oak barrels. The result is a nuanced beer with a distinct and unique flavour.
.
Last up is a real treat. From the Dutch Brouwerij De Molen, we have two bottles of their 2013 Bommen & Granatan Bordeaux Barrel Aged Barleywine. Pouring a clear amber, this is a 15.2% #thiccboi that almost requires a knife and fork to get through. With an aroma of toffee and molasses, you can expect big flavours of jammy fruits from that Bordeaux barrel.

What better way to kick-off the Bitter Phew event roster for 2018 with something rare, strong and barrel-aged on tap.
.
@garageproject 'Triple Day of the Dead' is an Imperial Chilli Chocolate Black Lager aged in Tequila Barrels with Chipotle, Cocoa Nibs, Agave and Vanilla Pods.
.
We'll be tapping this tiiiny keg at midday on Saturday January 13. When we say tiny - we mean it; this beer probably won't live to see Sunday.
.
If that wasn't tempting enough for you, this barrel aged bad-boy will be joined on tap by a few other Garage Project hombres that will be finding their way onto the taplist in the days leading up to January 13.

1. Garage Project (NZ) Triple Day of the Dead - 11.5%

The Avant Garde series from @lasirenebrewing has reached a new high with their Cuvée Du Bois. We had the pleasure of pouring this beer alongside head-brewer Costa at last years Rootstock Festival. And now, this vey limited keg is on tap at Bitter Phew.
.
A co-fermented farmhouse ale with ‘free run’ Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley was allowed to age and sour. Then blended with 2013 and 2014 aged saisons which had also been aged on Chardonnay lees. The final blend then let to rest for a further 8 months. A mouthful? Well yes.
.
To describe this beer would be like trying to name every person in an orchestra. However we'll give it a shot! We tasted Oak, Pepper, Pineapple, Papaya and Chardonnay with a slight, but noticeable acidity that helps cut through and clean the palate. .
A finely tuned group of flavours all marrying up to create a symphony.

The season for over-indulging is far from over.

We’ve decided to celebrate the end of 2017 by tapping a Gueuze.

Commonly referred to as the ‘Champagne of Belgium’, a Gueuze is a blend of young and old lambic, that results in a secondary fermentation which creates a beautifully delicate and effervescent beer.

This draft-version from Gueuzerie Tilquin is one of our dead-set favourites. Be quick, the keg probably won’t make it to 2018.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Backyard cricket, scribbly gums, @capitalbrewing Evil Eye Red IPA, beaches, family, friends and even just time out. From all the team at Bitter Phew we wish you all the best over the holiday season and we look forward to another massive year with you all! Cheers!

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. **SOLD OUT**

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.
