The Grifter Brewing Co Marnie's Majority Ale

Style
American IPA
ABV
6.5%

Having any beer brewed to mark your arrival in the world is a pretty special thing. But having a beer as good as Marnie's Majority Ale brewed for the occasion is pretty damn special (apart from the fact you technically have to wait 18 years to drink it). First created in 2013 as a celebration of Grifter's head brewer's transition to fatherhood, this beer found its way into the Hop Bomb section of our list of 50 top Australian beers in the 2013 end-of-year James Halliday's Wine Companion Magazine. The brewers didn't attempt anything crazy for the occasion, plumping for an American IPA. It's not a style Australians are lacking, but few turn out as well as this. Combining aromatic American hops - Bravo and Mosaic - with British malts, they achieved a beer with big citrus and stone fruit aromas, a rich biscuit and toffee malt backbone and plenty of bitterness, all balanced rather beautifully. Flavoursome, complex, clean and rewarding, it beats a pair of embroidered booties any day.
