Dark beers might be closely tied to winter but many feel a bit more like year-rounders, beers you can enjoy in the sun or by the fireplace. Brunswick Black is such a beer, with the dark lager joining Thunder Road’s core range in 2022 as the Melbourne brewery broadened their Brunswick Banner.
The draught-only release provides a rich swirl of chocolate and coffee while still remaining quite light and clean while finishing dry. It means you could do far worse than grabbing one to enjoy with a steak in a beer garden during and do worse still trying it by that same pub's fireplace while tucking into a Sunday roast.
