Review: White Rabbit – Belgian Style Pale Ale

Originally posted on 250 Beers:

A rather well packaged ‘beer mail’ parcel arrived at 250 Beers HQ last Friday courtesy of Lion’s PR department. It contained three bottles from White Rabbit Brewery – which falls into Lion’s craft portfolio thanks to the Healesville outfit being part of the Little Creatures set-up. Little Creatures of course joined James Squire to become Lion’s flagship craft beer brands in 2012.

The exact contents of the box turned out to be one 330ml bottle from each of the permanent White Rabbit lines – Dark Ale, White Ale and the brand spanking new Belgian style Pale Ale – launched in Victoria that very same day.

It wasn’t until Sunday evening that I cracked it open. Appropriate glassware selected…

I’d heard about the release of the newbie some weeks before yet right up until I took my first sip I couldn’t understand why a Belgian style pale had been selected as…

Sweet Sweet Love

20140809-091454-33294807.jpg
Have you ever felt the love of a Labrador retriever? Brown, black or yellow they are always excited, happy, minus the drool. They always want to see you! And even when you don’t know you are down they come over, lay on your feet, brush up against your side and change your day. In a subtle fashion they know how and when to love.

In the same sense Ellie’s Brown Ale displays the same subtleties as a beer. It smoothly and quietly slides into your mouth and gives you it’s love. The nutty goodness eases a bad day into a good afternoon.

Beer of the Week

One of the venues that I try to partake of is Beer Director for the Neighborhood restaurant group Greg Engert and his Beer of the Week. In this video they weekly go over a new offering in their bar, The Church Key here in Washington DC. They talk about the flavors of the beer and also talk a lot about pairings for the beer. For me, as a lay-beer-nerd, I find this very helpful because experts are telling me what the beer should taste like and what it should pair with. Subscribe and get more beer knowledge every week!

In this week’s episode they talk about the new Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Beer camp is the biggest collaboration in beer history and is super exciting. Watch the vid below to see what they are doing!

Three days in and Beer Camp just gets closer and closer. July 20th will be a really important day for me, and not just because I will get to drink more beer than I care to admit. July 20th is the day where I will be around people I have idolized for years, people who inspire me and who I want to learn from. Brewing beer is such an amazing thing and being around 100 other brewers is a real dream come true. I find purpose and passion in beer and Beer Camp will be my first huge thrust into the world of major craft brewers. It feels like the first big step into a new playing field, one I have wanted to be in for years.

Plus… you know… free beer!

Speaking of which our third beer in the Beer Camp Across America pack comes from Sierra Nevada and Cigar…
