About a week ago, two BotF correspondents wedged in a quick beer at Harts Pub before the 6pm ferry. We had a pint of Two Birds Brewing Golden Ale. We checked in the beer through @untappd and we promptly asked our views by @twobirdsbrewing. A couple of tweets later and @backoftheferry has locked in the 4th of November as the date of the Sydney launch for Two Birds Brewing Golden Ale. Aaah, the interweb.
Sydney turned on a glorious day for the launch and bladdamasta and one of our most faithful female members, who is still determining her BotF sobriquet, fronted at 4.30pm for kick-off. It was a flying visit as the 5.30pm ferry beckoned. A subsequent viewing of twitter and Untappd, indicated that like the Melbourne launch (which was covered with rapidity by our Melbourne confrere) the Sydney Beer mafia showed up. The Two Birds – Danielle Allen and Jayne Lewis (former Mountain Goat brewer) attended and pulled a couple of schooners for the paparazzi (which included BotF’s unsobriqueted representative).
Cheers ladies. This is a really refreshing beer and one that would be a fine accompaniment to a scorcher on the Back of the Ferry. Hopefully you can convince Mr Liquor at Circular Quay or Vintage Cellars at Carrington Street to carry your 6 packs. It could be a sculler (and it was), but there’s enough taste to linger over if you don’t have to bolt for a ferry.
Lucky we caught the 5.30pm. The Harbour is starting to teem with life and pommy_ch noted the presence of plenty of fish. No sooner had he made that observation that a school of dolphins came in for a pretty easy feed. Gotta love Sydney Harbour.
