Murray's / The Crafty Pint Auld Bulgin' Boysterous Bicep

Murray's

Released July 9th, 2013

We've said plenty about this beer created in collaboration with Murray's so won't say much more here. What's more, as it's kind of our beer it would be wrong to say much about it anyway. That's part of the reason why we've decided to run a little competition inviting you to review it for us in 50 words or less, with the best and most entertaining received by August 9 winning a t-shirt.

What we can say is that it's a 10 per cent Smoked Belgio Imperial Mussel & Oyster Stout featuring heaps of Port Stephen's oysters, blue and green-lipped mussels, peated distilling malt and a Belgian Trappist yeast. And that the early responses to have come in since it was tapped at the brewery and the Murray's bar in Manly on July 6 include "awesome", "the best stout I have tasted", "masterpiece" and "beautiful". All of which is good to know, especially for something that started out as a bit of fun for last year's Beervana NZ.

For more on the competition head here, or for the chance to buy a t-shirt so you can wear a semi-naked, musclebound hunk with mussels and seaweed for a head on your chest, click here.

NB: At its Victorian launch, we were asked if it would be brewed again. We said: "Hopefully." The brewer said: "No." Goddammit!
