scout asked Matt and Joslyn of Hop On Brew­ery Tours for their ex­pert opin­ions on the best beers here on the Gold Coast and from greater Bris­bane and here’s what they rec­om­mend…

GOLD COAST BEERS Black Hops Pale Ale:

This light and fruity pale ale is easy drink­ing, so much so that it’s over­taken Bal­ter XPA as our go-to fridge beer.

Black Hops Eg­gnog Stout:

A com­pletely unique beer that tastes like Christ­mas. Nut­meg, cin­na­mon, brandy and vanilla - yum!

Burleigh Brew­ing Black Gi­raffe:

A sea­sonal re­lease, cof­fee-in­fused lager us­ing beans from Zaraffa’s Cof­fee.

Bal­ter Alt-brown:

A light-bod­ied, easy-drink­ing brown ale.

Beard & Brau Black Snout Milk Stout:

A dark, full-bod­ied stout brewed with lac­tose, giv­ing it a creami­ness and sweet­ness.

Cur­rumbin Val­ley Look Out!:

A gypsy-brewed Dou­ble IPA that’s so full of flavour and punch, it’s dan­ger­ously easy to drink.

BRIS­BANE BEERS 4 Hearts Brew­ing Red IPA:

A sweet malty back­bone with a bal­ance of bit­ter­ness and a gor­geous red colour.

Green Bea­con:

Their Bar­bary Coast Black IPA is a sea­sonal win­ter re­lease with dark roast malts and punchy hops, while the 3 Bolt Pale Ale is an­other easy­drink­ing pale ale that’s of­ten found in our fridge.

Bal­lis­tic Beer Pi­lot Light:

A mid-strength but full-flavoured beer that can get you through the af­ter­noon.

Bac­chus Brew­ing:

The Mo­saic IPA is one of Matt’s favourite beers – sin­gle hopped with Mo­saic, this beer sings. The Honky Stonk Woman is an­other favourite.

New­stead Brew­ing Co:

Two to the Val­ley IPA is resinous and full-bod­ied, this has be­come one of Joslyn’s all time favourite IPAS.
