I stopped by here last week and was pretty impressed with range on offer. I should go more ofen.

Currently drinking Hocus Pocus. On the can: "Nitro sour brewed with cherries, vanilla and Mandarina Bavaria. Shake before pouring." It's really tasty and unique.
Love the cherry-vanilla interplay and the soft nitro mouthfeel. I always thought you needed a widget in the can to execute a canned nitro beer. It's very mildly sour and smells like a cherry danish.

Also sampled the Balam which is a bourbon barrel aged stout with coffee and vanilla. It's fantastic and worth $15 IMO.

I was also there last week. They are pretty heavily skewed towards sour styles (albeit a diverse range of "sours") which isn't really my thing. My friends who do like sours have only positive things to say. I narrowly missed Balam, which is disappointing as I also don't get out that way too often. Was impressed with Unify or Die; I didn't think I'd enjoy a stout with cinnamon but it was really well integrated.

I agree. My previous visit left me with the same impression — an abundance of While Lies variants.. which are good beers. Also I wasn't blown away by Shumei. However Balam is one of the best coffee stouts to have graced my palate. Also enjoyed Devil''s Trill III (hazy IPA).
I grabbed a Unify or Die to go.. looking forward to it.

I went to Blood Brothers yesterday. First time in a very long time. The current space is great, especially while the weather is nice with how open it can be. I overheard a conversation between one of the brothers and a tradesman. It looks like they are putting in a canning line.

The current IIPA ‘Everyrhing Goes Away’ was excellent. The Black hand stout was nice too. I also thought the Thai wings were tasty. Lots of fish sauce, chilli and lime.

If only it were easier to park close by.....
