Happy Thursday everyone! Today's beer was a light beer. Light in alcohol, that is, rather than light in calories. Before a mid-strength (3.5% ABV) beer became Australia's best-selling beer, the only options for beers that weren't full strength in any of the years from the 1970s through to the late 2000s were beers in the light beer category, which were traditionally about 1 - 2% ABV. It took a while for craft brewers to catch on, but when they did the beers were invariably better than the ones traditionally offered by the macro brewers. This one, Prickly Moses' Otway Light, is brewed about an hour up the road from me in the Otway Forest, a stretch of mountainous wet-climate forest that rims the coast and forms the backdrop to the stunning Great Ocean Road that winds along Victoria's southern coastline. It's a beautiful part of the world, and the beers brewed there aren't bad either. Cheers!
