Posted 4:21pm Sunday 16th May 2021

In recent years many of Dunedin’s most treasured and iconic pubs, such as Gardies and Monkey Bar have closed up shop. In wake of this, I decided to visit five popular Dunedin pubs to assess the quality of their pints.    The Method The perfect pint is a magical and elusive Read more...

Booze Reviews | Soju

Posted 4:14pm Sunday 9th May 2021

Following in the footsteps of Marco Polo I embarked on a tasting of the Korean spirit soju. Originally brewed as a pure spirit, soju now comes in a range of fruit flavours. I selected three flavours from the Chateul Soorok brand for consideration. I’ll be honest I had never even heard of Soju Read more...

Booze Reviews | Peronis: Living the High Life

Posted 8:08pm Sunday 2nd May 2021

Italians either succeed at something completely, or they fail at it miserably. Ferraris and World War II are some prime examples of these extremes. Peronis are something that they managed to get right. They are a perfect beer for demonstrating to your peers that you are sophisticated yet down to Read more...

Booze Reviews | Major Major

Posted 9:40pm Monday 26th April 2021

In my extremely shit-faced attempts to find something newsworthy at Hyde I came across a dude pissing against a wall and holding a Major Major. I asked him what he thought of his beverage and he told me: “Bloody good, tastes just like apple-juice.”  That is an excellent summary Read more...

Booze Reviews: Cocktail Research and Development

Posted 1:33am Monday 19th April 2021

Having already acquired my alcohol for Hyde and not ready to buy anything else for the week, I decided to scrounge the little alcohol I had and try out a few wacky combinations. Mostly they were better than the original ingredients. Triple Brown The Triple Brown consists of a Double Brown with Read more...

Booze Reviews | Rodenbach

Posted 1:02am Sunday 11th April 2021

Rodenbach caused Black Friday levels of sensation at Centre City New World when they were put on sale for $1.99 for a six-pack. Ahead of the curve, I managed to grab 48 cans ($16 worth) before the masses swept the rest away. This turned out to be one of the worst decisions of my life.  In my Read more...

Booze Reviews | Social RTDs

Posted 2:13pm Sunday 14th March 2021

Social sent us through a mixture of all three of their drinks so I decided to try them all. They all come in 10 x 330 mL boxes and are only 5% ABV. At their usual price of $25 this brings them in at $1.92 per standard, which is very steep.   White Rum Pina Colada This one was rough. As Read more...

Booze Reviews | Delete Whiskey Cherry Cola

Posted 11:32am Sunday 7th March 2021

Delete Cherry Cola tastes more like air freshener and whiskey than cherry and cola. My flatmate’s parents took us to India Gardens on the night I consumed the Deletes. I had been eating fuck all since the start of O-week so I had an absolute feast and was pretty full even after a long walk Read more...

Booze Reviews | Cheeky Hard Iced Tea

Posted 12:53am Wednesday 3rd March 2021

I consumed Cheeky on a stunning Saturday evening in Dunedin. The refreshing iced tea combined with the thirsty summer weather quickly saw me near the bottom of my box. Cheeky Hard Iced Tea is an instant classic. It has simple packaging and it’s a simple idea, but it’s Read more...

Booze Reviews | Boundary Road: Chocka Hopa

Posted 2:00am Friday 2nd October 2020

I consumed my slab of BrB: Chocka Hopa on Tuesday night. I’m not sure whether it was the atmosphere the snow created or the stunning quality of the brewing, but the first can of beer really hit the spot. There has been an increase in mid-tier breweries over the past few years which market Read more...
