Mountain Goat Fancy Pants 2013

Mountain Goat (Asahi)

Released February 15, 2013

If you've ever enjoyed a beer from Melbourne's Mountain Goat then you should say a little thanks for the existence of hoppy amber ales. For it was such a beer style that caused co-founder Dave Bonighton's beer epiphany when he was living in the States as a wee nipper (well, of drinking age but "wee nipper" adds a certain dash of colour to this sentence so we're going with it). It led to the creation of the Hightail and, ultimately, many years later, this: the Fancy Pants that is the Hightail sans financial constraints. It's nothing too crazy, just richer malts and bigger hops (from Galaxy and Cascade) and a touch more booze too. It's appearing in bottles for the first time this year too - Rare Breed longnecks - so you can relive Dave's beer epiphany in the comfort of your own home.
