Having a kid isn't something to be rushed into. It's a serious commitment requiring planning, timing and a bit of luck. Richard Adamson from Young Henrys and Dave Bonighton from Mountain Goat are a model of responsible parenting. They talked about making a beer last year, thought very seriously through all the implications, then talked about it some more over the New Year - this wasn't going to be some awkward one night stand. So what happened when they did eventually get together? The Kid was born.
As you might expect with such parentage, The Kid is an English style ale with an Aussie twist. And what would the proud parents be most likely to be cooing over with this beer baby? Probably the dark brown colour, creamy head, smooth bitterness and chocolate flavours. They'd probably admire the English heritage while boasting about its strong Aussie hops. They'd also be proud to know their Kid isn't ordinary, it's super. Or rather, a 5.5 per cent Super Mild. NO
