BEER HAIKU # 94 Nail Brewing HUGhE Dunn Imperial Brown Ale

Anyone remember Jimmy Nail? Never mind; doesn’t matter. That Nail was a comedy Geordie in an 80s TV show. This Nail is a Perth-based brewer that recently won a prize for their/this Imperial Brown Ale in the Porter category of the Australian Cryer Malt Awards*. Courtesy of Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar, we have a sneak preview of the calibre of beer we can expect come Labour weekend at this year’s Pacific Beer Expo.

Nail Brewing HUGhE Dunn Imperial Brown Ale (8.0% ABV)

Hints of vanilla,

Pineapple lumps and leather

Clocks change, beer saves day

Food match: spare ribs, steamed samphire with butter and chipotle salt

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: when you have delusions of grandeur

* This is an example of Australian science under the Abbott administration.
