Garden De Paradisi by The Mad Brewers (AUS)

You need good glasses to drink beer. It was a good job that I’d left mine in my room when I bought this one. If I had been able to read the label, I would have noticed that this intriguing looking beer was in fact a ‘Witbier’ or white beer and I’d never have chosen it. Well, that would have been my loss because this is not you average white beer.

Forget the garden salad, try fish and chips with Garden de Paradis

Not exactly white, it has the colour of a battered cod fillet (see above), this rather spicy brew had enough citrus tang to cut through the grease and go perfectly with fish and chips. A little research reveals that the Mad Brewers are an offshoot of James Squire. This experimental brew is laced with a special ingredient, the “grain of paradise’ , a close relation of cardamom. It’s this grain that gives this witbier it’s x-factor ………. go mad for it!

Here’s Mad Manc, Ian Brown sounding like he’s been jamming with Queens of the Stone Age in a Moroccan souk ………. with, ‘One Way Ticket To Paradise’
