5.6%, 45 IBU, Shenanigans Brewing Co, Marrickville, NSW
A light malt base combined with oats, bucket loads of Kiwi, U.S and Australian hops bursting with notes of tropical fruit, freshly bruised citrus and heady notes of white grapes. Modestly bitter, the finish is full, refreshing and crisp.

“Fastidious Bastard IPA” pays homage to the very hoppy and bitter India Pale Ales in the American West Coast style. Hoppy aromas and flavours of pine, citrus, spice and resin entice the senses, before a long bitter finish.
We are getting excited for Sydney Craft Beer Week 2015 and the coolroom is jam packed in anticipation. From Monday October 19th our upstairs lounge area will become a games den with 4 specialty lagers that have been brewed by Yulli’s Brews especially for SCBW.
Yulli’s Brews are adding a Lager into the core range of beers and would love for you to be a part of it’s incarnation! All you have to do is grab a paddle of the 4 trial beers we’ve brewed and rank them in order of preference on the sheet provided… The highest rank beer will eventually become our Seabass Lager!
The main variance between these trial brews is the hops we’ve used in the brewing process. For your reference, these hops and their country of origin are:
Lager 1: Motueka (B Saaz) – New Zealand
Lager 2: Sorachi Ace – Japan
Lager 3: Centennial & Fuggles – USA & UK
Lager 4: Summer – Australia
6.3%, 58 IBU, Surry Hills
Guy McFly is our variation on an American IPA, with a spicy twist from the addition of Rye malt. At 15% of the grist, it imparts slightly spicy, puckering notes which are complemented by the use of some of the classic American big C hops in Citra and Chinook. Guy is an IPA for hop heads, and for the generally inquisitive crafty folk too..
5.8%, Mona Vale
This US-inspired pale ale is, in theory, Modus Operandi’s least-hoppy hoppy beer, but in saying that it sure ain’t short of hops. That’s thanks to six different additions of the US Centennial hop which helps produce a beer bursting with aromas of lemon and pine and a fairly aggressive bitterness.
