I’m not a big beer drinker, but when there isn’t any cider on tap I’m always open to try something new. This was precisely the situation that presented itself today at the Wesley Anne in Northcote. Enter the Citray Sour, like a hopped up lemon juice, it is very refreshing, quite sour, and the perfect beer for when you feel like a cider. Produced by Melbourne based wild ale brewers, La Sirène, the Citray Sour is not the first of their brews to pass my lips and it certainly won’t be the last.
I’m not a big beer drinker but sometimes the weather and the food calls for it. Pancho, that great little South American bar in Armstrong Street, has excellent food and while the wine is good, the beer is even better. Today we tried Malquerida (which translates as unlucky in love) a red beer from Barcelona, and Zulia, a Venezuelan pilsner. Both light, fruity, complex and completely delicious!
