Robinsons Brewery Trooper - $5.95
 
Working as one, Robinsons Brewery and vocalist Bruce Dickinson have come together to produce Trooper, a true-to-its-roots English Bitter. Caramel in colour with all the bready, malty notes you would expect in a beer of this style, the palate features more malt followed by toffee, grains and a citrus zip. A medium-bodied brew that pairs perfectly with all of Iron Maiden’s legendary albums.

Malka Brewery Dry Stout - $4.15

A dry Irish stout from where you’d least expect it, Yehiam, Israel, this Kosher offering pours jet black in the glass and offers intense aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee and a touch of char. On the palate coffee is the main attraction, but it doesn’t overpower notes of vanilla and roasted barley and malts. With its medium body, this Israeli offering is more than enjoyable with its classic flavours, dry finish and overall deliciousness.
