Help Us Get Blind: Imperial Stouts

July 21, 2017 by Crafty Pint

Having brought our blind tasting panels back last month – and taken them public – we're aiming to run them every two months now. Next up is imperial stouts and, once more, we're asking you to help us decide which beers to put to the test.

June 19, 2017 by Crafty Pint

After an unplanned seven month break, we brought our blind tasting panel back. We focused on hoppy reds and ambers, with readers helping select the featured beers. Here's the results – and how readers can join us for a public version of the tasting.


Getting Blind With Crafty: Saison Revisited

October 10, 2016 by Crafty Pint

It's a style that's much loved at Crafty Towers and a favourite of many brewers, as well as one that's broad and complex. So, 40 months on from last time, we assembled another blind tasting panel to assess a lineup of saisons.


Getting Blind with Crafty: IPA (Part II)

August 3, 2016 by Crafty Pint

After two sessions, we've now put 40 Australian brewed IPAs to the test. In part II, we set about blind tasting beers weighing 6.5 percent and above. And here's the results; how did your favourites fare?


Getting Blind With Crafty: IPA (Part I)

June 15, 2016 by Crafty Pint

It's been a while, but our blind tastings are back. And, having punished panelists with some less than thrilling lineups previously, here we tackle flavour of the month IPA. With so many now available, we're splitting the tasting over two panels.


Getting Blind With Crafty: Pale Lagers

November 10, 2015 by Crafty Pint

For our final blind tasting of 2015, we looked at a style that's becoming increasingly popular with Australian craft brewers: pale lagers. We lined up 26 different beers (including a few "New World" versions) from brewers big and small. And this is how they fared.


Getting Blind With Crafty: Ownership Special

October 14, 2015 by Crafty Pint

Part two of our examination of the issue of ownership in the craft beer world is a blind tasting special. In it, we pit beers from the big brewers, major retailers and multinationals against those from small independent Australian brewing companies.


Getting Blind With Crafty: Stouts

August 17, 2015 by Crafty Pint
