The Suburban Brew Pleasure & Consequences & Shake Shake Shake

Barleywine & Oat Cream IPA
9.5% & 6.6%

With this twin tinnies release, The Suburban Brew look to cater for those seeking some late winter warmth as well as those pining for hops. At 9.5 percent ABV, Pleasure & Consequence is their biggest beer to date: a barleywine that suggests the new brew kit is well and truly dialled in, and the brew team has been let off the leash.

Pouring a deep copper colour, Pleasure & Consequence leads the drinker down an interesting path that contains a myriad of flavours: kicking off with dried currants and sultanas, the beer moves onto caramel and toffee notes, with some sweet biscuit and marmalade to be found in its sticky, chewy body. There is a subtle bitter bite at the end, doing its part to dry things out just a touch.

With Taylor Swift concert madness sweeping the nation as tickets sold out in record time, Suburban decided to fan out with an oat cream IPA dedicated to the record-breaking singer. Well, that’s not entirely true, but there is mention of Tay Tay’s lyrics on the can. Utilising a relatively new hop on the market, Superdelic, Shake Shake Shake debuted at the 2023 Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival. And a shake it is, coming together in a yellow, murky beer with a creamy, soft and fluffy mouthfeel awash with sweet candy sugar and loads of pineapple lollies. It's super juicy too, with round edges and no hop harshness in sight. Any bitterness is non-existent, with the sweetness tailing off a little on the finish.
