Lovers of those beers with a gently mellow hop character, look away now. The Wheatsheaf Hotel, one of Adelaide’s premier craft beer venues, launches into September with a month of Humulus Lupulin-laden brews for those who need that spicy/citrusy/punchy/grassy/perfume-y/meadow-fresh enjoyment that only a hop-driven beer can provide. Jade and the crew at The Wheaty will lead drinkers through a dazzling array of beers which will showcase the Cone of the Bine in all its many incarnations.
The Fountain of Hoppiness is set to put a spring in one’s step and a pucker in one’s moosh this September as we do our bit to engage the ‘Lupulin Threshold Shift’ across the land.
We reckon every day is IPA day, and throughout September this is more true than ever – enter ‘The Fountain of Hoppiness’. We sacrifice 7 of our 13 taps to Hops, pouring varying levels of hoppiness across an entire font (and the Handpump) and exploring Humulus Lupulus in all of its fiendish manifestations…
