Ode to Craft Beer

Craft Beer is one of man's great loves. You may even call it a hobby, as it's easy to find passion in craft beer.

After a long day's graft there's nothing quite like a craft beer. Be it at a hipster bar in a Melbourne alleyway, a swanky Sydney bar, or from the bottle-o on the corner.

Whether an IPA, Blond, or Bock, to me they all taste good, those deliciously wonderful cold beers.

Craft beer's in Australia are on the rise, with new breweries springing up all the time. With quirky names and quirky flavours, leave the decadence for the prestigious wine connoisseurs who spit in a bucket, and revel in the beer like the true working man you are.

At The Monk you and I are alike.

Cheers 🍻
