We wanted to start the Beer of the month club off with a bang in 2014, so after searching far and wide for a premium craft beer decided on the Alpha Queen, the flagship beer from the Boatrocker micro brewery.
Here I am packing the Alpha Queen Boatrocker for the Beer of the month club members, January 2014
From the Boatrocker website:
Boatrocker Beer Philosophy
Our beer philosophy is pretty simple… Make the best beer possible using the best possible ingredients. We’re always striving to create new and wonderful beers, appealing to both newcomers on the craft beer journey and the more seasoned craft beer traveller. We hope you enjoy the ride!
So I decided to take the Boatrocker boys up on their “hope you enjoy the ride” tag and bought a couple of six packs with me to Alisons parents house (plus a couple of bottles of French Champagne from the Champagne of the month club, but that’s another story) who were hosting a bbq for Alisons birthday, and use it as an opportunity to properly test the Alpha Queen for members! (I’m good like that And after opening the first with Alisons Dad we looked at each other and gave it the nod. Plus Graeme called out to Alisons Mum to try a glass, so I’m thinking that was a pretty good sign too. Nods all around.
Wind forward the clock a few hours and 6 or 7 Alpha Queen beers later, and all I can say is I thoroughly enjoyed this sessionable beer and hope every Beer of the month club member enjoyed it as much as we did. Ideal for a summer barbecue.
Cheers and happy new year! Robert (founder)
