A cliff called Point Perpendicular tells you exactly what to expect from it - it’s straight up and down. That makes it gorgeous to photograph from a distance, perfect for enjoying the panoramic view, and absolutely bonkers to climb. And yet skilled climbers come from all over to have a crack at this impossibly sheer cliff face. I don’t understand some people.
Point Perp Pilsner is right at the other end of the spectrum - accessible to all. Jervis Bay Brewing have gone old world meets new world with this pilsner, taking the traditional route with the European yeast but introducing New Zealand’s Motueka hops to bring a slight zing. Think homemade crusty bread from the oven with just a scraping of lemon butter. If you stick your nose deep into the glass, this beer will reward you with a nuanced aroma, and the lingering bitterness is something you can mull over. But like many lagers, this beer is at its best when you just knock it back with a big dumb smile on your face.
If you’re the kind of person who wants to climb Point Perp, we may not be friends. But if you want to sit at the top and drink a Point Perp Pilsner, I’ll be right there with you.
