Pirate Life Brewing (SA/Australia) – Throwback Session IPA [3.5%]
‘We love beer! We love beer so much that we want drink beer pretty much all of the time. Unfortunately the level of alcohol in most beer, with any hint of flavour, has quite the profound effect on us performing as a functioning and productive human. We need a reduced alcohol solution.
Enter our ThrowBack IPA.
Designed for intelligent and sexy humans who’d like to be able to throw back a few cans of a zealously hopped ale, endowed with an ample malt chassis, and still get on with their day.
Pairing suggestion: Cooking, eating, camping, sailing, lawn mowing, home brewing, in-law visiting*, hiking, riding and doing.
*You may need something stronger after visiting with the in-laws.’

‘Adelaide deserves to be famous for more than churches and an iced coffee fetish. Sunshine, great food, better wine and famous festivals; it was the obvious choice for Pirate Life. These days rather than migrating interstate, Adelaide kids are staying put and opening their own out-there bars and restaurants. These are our kind of people. With the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale just out of town, they know a thing or two about their plonk. The same goes for beer. Adelaide might have funny tasting water, but that doesn’t stop them from making a darn good brew. It’s still the home of Coopers, and we’re joining an emerging craft beer scene nipping at their heels. (We are bringing fancy water filters of course.) We’re jumping in at a great time. Aftermany years of glory, malls balls has finally lost its spot as the crowning architectural jewel of the city. The new Adelaide Oval is shaking up the CBD with footy and cricket mad hordes. Adelaide’s whole calendar is catching up to the Mad March frenzy. Melburnians and Sydneysiders can make all the snide remarks they like; we don’t mind having Adelaide to ourselves. It’s heaps good.’
