What’s Planet B New Eng­land Pale Ale $26/6-pack (330ml cans) Be­hind the Sparkke Change Bev­er­age Co you’ll find nine South Aussie women on a mis­sion to have you think­ing while you are drink­ing. It’s a fruity, trop­i­cal, tangy brew packed full of aro­matic hops — less bit­ter and more ap­proach­able than its other West Coast al­ter­na­tives. This New Eng­land IPA is not only de­li­cious but it’ll have you start­ing a con­ver­sa­tion. Pale Ale $27/6-pack (355ml cans) The boys at Pi­rate Life Brew­ing are go­ing from strength to strength, and with a planned ex­pan­sion to a sec­ond lo­ca­tion, the pi­rates will cer­tainly feel at home in the Port. Their flag­ship Pale is an ex­em­plary in­ter­pre­ta­tion of an Amer­i­can Pale Ale; ex­pect pine, cit­rus and earthy hops matched per­fectly with a solid, malty back­bone. You’ll eas­ily smash this one all sum­mer long. The Naked Ob­jec­tor West Coast IPA $24/4-pack (330ml cans) Tucked away in the back­streets of Step­ney, Ryan and Fil at Lit­tle Bang Brew­ing Co de­liver this huge IPA as their take on the clas­sic West Coast IPA. And it’s ballsy, to say the least. Head on in to the brew­ery on a sunny Sun­day af­ter­noon, chill among the fer­menters and or­der some­thing from a lo­cal food truck out the front. Hippy Ber­liner / Sour Hoppy Ale $23/4-pack (330ml cans) Across the ditch for this one we go. 8 Wired have Amer­i­can­ised this Ber­liner Weisse adding plenty of New Zealand and Amer­i­can hops to cre­ate a clean, zesty, re­fresh­ing brew full of pas­sion­fruit and cit­rus flavour. Don’t over­look this sour, it’s a per­fect re­fresh­ing sum­mer beer, con­ve­niently lighter in al­co­hol. Like Rus­sell Crowe you’ll hap­pily claim this 8 Wired beer as one of our own. In­dian Red Ale $20/4-pack (330ml cans) If you’re in McLaren Vale and need a break from your wines, add a hop stop to your tour and drop in to Good­ieson for a frothy. This In­dian Red Ale, with its vi­brant cop­per colour, of­fers a fresh aroma then an ini­tial hoppy bit­ter­ness and tof­fee like malty rich­ness for bal­ance. Who needs dessert when you can fin­ish the day with one of these? SAWEEKEND
