Collaboration is very much the name of the game in the Sydney craft beer scene these days, it seems. There are the more typical brewer on brewer affairs ' Darren from Doctor's Orders has been hunkering down with Shane from Sixpoint this week to create something monstrously hoppy and high in alcohol ' but also plenty that look outside the beer world. Young Henrys has mixed with the music, food, coffee and various other worlds and now the brewing company that shares their brewery has hooked up with one of the city's top bars. The Grifter guys have put their heads together with Baxter ' mainly the staff member they call "The Beer MONSTER Jordan himself" ' and have come up with something to little different from the many hoppy beers they have been releasing recently. The result is Swill of the Gods, an approachable, "no fuss", malty Scotch ale. According to the brewers: "For this beer we decided to ease off on the hops and focus more on malt complexity. Pouring a deep amber/red colour with a creamy tan head. This beer has layers of bready, biscuit, toffee and raisin notes complete with a full body and some residual sweetness. An easy drinking interpretation of a classic but uncommonly found style." Designed as a perfect transition from warmer to colder months, it is heading out far and wide.
