Sunset Ale – Two Birds Brewing (AUS)

If a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush what is Two Birds in the hand worth? It’s worth drinking that’s for sure.

I’d always associated the Victorian town of Spotswood with the slot-car movie of the same name, starring Anthony Hopkins, that inspired the “Fast & Furious” franchise. It seems Spotswood could soon be known for craft brewing too.

The name alludes to the fact that the brewers in question are in fact ‘two birds’, of the female variety. Making their way in a very male-dominated industry must be hard (conversely, I know my mates Jonno and Des struggled with their cupcake business) …….. but the girls have done good. Mahogany in colour, it has notes of toffee on both the nose and the tongue. I would have preferred a little more bitterness in the finish and maybe a third bird would have would have been the icing on the cake. Overall, an easy drinking English-style ale, best poured into a glass and supped slowly.

I’d also like to see a “Spotswood Ale” with a picture of a slot-car on the label.

It’s no quantum leap from Two Birds to “Three Little Birds”, so here’s a bit of Bob …………………
