    Folks,

    Came across the fact that Danno's now stock Rogue, well at least Dad's Little Helper Black IPA

    Good News is the Price

    its 12 bucks for a 640

    Bad News is the Copy Writing (and the spelling)

    Cult American Craft Brewers, Rogue, are well known for producing some of the quirkiest and most flavoursome American brews to land here in Australia. The Dad's Little Helper Black IPA is a bold, deep mahogany colour in the glass which is followed with roasted malt and hop aromas and a dense creamy head. Entering the palate with an intense hop whack while finishing with a dense, rich maltiness. The ideal gift for that craft beer loving Dad, or for that emerging hispter in all of us.

    So are all we hispters ready to indulge? :D

    Enjoy your Friday...

    Cheers!

    "...are well known for producing some of the quirkiest and most flavoursome American brews to land here in Australia".

    I rather doubt Australia would get a mention if you stopped a beer geek (or hipster) on the street and asked them what Rogue are well known for.

    Good to hear. Most of their beers that I've had are mediocre (excepting double chocolate stout and hazelnut brown) but they're still better than most of the beers Dan Murphy's stocks.

    My partner picked up two bottles for me today. Having one while watching the LSU/ TCU game I recorded.
    Nice beer, good bitterness and with some nice roast notes as well.
    It is nice to see Dan's getting a bit more diverse in craft. Am almost buying a beer or two every time I go in to buy my GF wine. It is not a knock on Indy stores but when Dan's is getting in 2013 wines and having some decent selection of beers at a good price I will always walk out with something for me.

    Went to a Dan's tonight but couldn't see any rogue - disappointed - barls is it allocation only or can it be readily ordered from your distribution centre?
     
  14. barls

    barls Nov 15, 2006 Australia

    think its allocation.
    ill check tomorrow how much we have left.
    havent been there since friday.
    which dans did you go to? im at gladesville.

    I would imagine it was a smallish amount of stock for Fathers Day.

    Was not even out to sell when my GF asked for it on Sunday. Staff at the Top Ryde Dan's told her we got it in on Friday. She told me that they had multiple cases of it.

    was only in boxes at the checkout at Hornsby, in line for those Fathers Day impulse buys - however the name of the beer wasn't visible enough methinks for that ploy to work. nowhere in the standard beer area.

    i got the heads up thru Uncle Dan's on-line

    I had the "Bacon & Maple Syrup Donut" Rogue over the weekend. Really amusing and interesting. Comes in a bright pink bottle so probably not a good present for Dad though!

    The question that needs to be asked then is..................................................................................are there hipsters in Hornsby???????

    Hmm - I may have missed it as I went straight to the beer section and couldn't find it so I walked out. Silly me :confused:

    funny you should ask, I heard recently that Hornsby Council had received many applications to rename roads to 'Brunswick St' and you should see the the Vintage Clothing Emporiums springing up all over the place.

    or

    it's just full of Lads. One of the two.....

    you can actually check on Dan Murphy's website whether they have stock of something at a particular location

    if something's listed as in stock but not on the shelves the staff should be able to get it for you

    Darwin553 Jan 5, 2009 Australia


    That's great if you live near one. But I'm not driving 20 minutes again just to go and pick up the stock.
     
  24. danieelol

    danieelol Jun 15, 2010 Australia

    I live 30 minutes walk away, which is exactly why it is useful to be able to see if they actually have something in stock before I go there.

    Picked some up today

    Rang up as $130 a bottle

    Still amazing to see Big Eye for $20 a six pack (fresh too)

    130 a box you mean????

    Yes, they obviously screwed up their barcoding

    Was all sorted though

    It is when you consider what other beers cost $20 for a six pack. I've gone off it (and Torpedo) though.
