Kooinda Pale Ale was voted # 5 beer out of 100 beers in the Local Taphouse’s Hottest 100 beers of 2010. We were pretty stoked with the results.
As commented by brewsnews.com.au
This year’s Hottest 100 confirms – if any conformation was needed – that hops are the driving force in craft beer. Eight of the top ten beers are hop driven ales, predominantly pale and India pale ales. It also confirms Little Creatures Pale Ale’s position as one of the most highly regarded and influential beers in Australia.
Despite the importance of hops, it is interesting to note that the top 10 is largely devoid of ‘hop monsters’. Depending on how the definitions are drawn (and this is wildly subjective), around fifty per cent of the featured beers fall into the loose category of ‘sessional’ beers as opposed to bigger and one-off brews.
Heres the top 5 results :
1 McLaren Vale Ale
2 Little Creatures Pale Ale
3 Stone & Wood Draught/Pacific Ale
4 Feral Hop Hog
5 Kooinda Pale Ale
