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
