ILLAWARRA BREWING CHUCK NORRIS

Illawarra Brewing Chuck Norris. “When Alexander Bell invented the telephone he had three missed calls from Chuck Norris”.

“There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.”

I could go on but there is already a whole website dedicated to Chuck Norris facts:

The crew from Local Taphouse Darlinghurst headed down to Illawarra Brewery to make a collaborative beer with the brewery. They bravely decided to brew a beer paying homage to Chuck Norris. A Mosaic single hop American Red Ale.

Using English and Australian Pale malt as base malts they added German Carared, Carafa I, and Belgian Special B to give it some redhead character. Mosaic hops were added at seven stages imparting its trademark pine, citrus and tropical fruit flavours and aroma. With a jumping side kick it attacks with IBU 33 and 5.9% ABV.

Red / light brown colour, fine head with hop oil bubbles. Tropical and strong pine hop aroma. Medium body and mod carbonation. It has an amazing mouthfeel – smooth and luscious with a soft resinous quality. A gentle slightly grainy malt flavour followed by a smooth tropical, citrus and pine flavour. The hop flavours and resin linger with a satisfying bitter finish. A deliciously hoppy beer.

It was like I had been kicked in the head twenty seven times, knocked to the ground with a roundhouse kick and put into a headlock before I knew what hit me.
