World Whisky Day is coming up on Saturday 17th May 2014, and is all about celebrating whisky with friends.
Come celebrate with us, and Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, as they host a pop up bar in Kerbside, Saturday 17th May from 10pm - 1am.
Join us at the pop up bar and experience a wealth of knowledge about whisky and choose from one of the whisky cocktails created by the Monkey Shoulder Ambassador.
Whisky or Whiskey?
What’s in a name? Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is called whisky because it’s produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: An elegant, stylish nose of marmalade, Crema Catalana, cocoa and malt. A sprinkling of winter spice (nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon) adds an extra dimension, alongside a mouth-watering hint of aniseed.
Palate: Very malty, creamy delivery which offers up a palate redolent of berry fruit, juicy toasted barley, cloves and butterscotch. A hint of manuka honey, hot-buttered-toast and dried apricot develop.
Finish: Medium length, with clove-studded oranges, creamy vanilla and peppermint on the tail.
We look forward to celebrating Whisky Day with you all!

Showcasing brews from local and interstate breweries, we are bringing in more taps than you can poke a stick at for an afternoon session of epic proportions.

Sunday 23rd March from 12pm at Kerbside will equal beer, food, beer, music, beer, beer and there’s also going to be….BEER!
Beer O’Clock Feature - Stone & Wood Stone Beer (7.2%)
The month approaching winter marks a special place in the calendar at the Stone & Wood brewery, because it’s that time of the year when they get out their stones and heat them in a wood fire at the brewery as part of brewing their limited release Stone Beer. It’s a beer that has evolved over the years and the 2013 brew is no exception.
But blink and you’ll miss this one… it’s only limited release! But we here at Kerbside were one of the first to get this in stock!
As a tribute to the brewers of the Middle Ages Stone & Wood brew this beer by adding wood fired stones to the kettle to rouse the boil and intensify the malt characters of the brew.
Long before the wizardry of steam was invented, brewers used stone and wood to brew their daily beer. They built a fire to heat large stones until they were hot enough to be added to their wooden vats to create a boiling brew. Apart from the obvious heating effects, the brewing stones also caramelised the brew to create subtle but rich toffee like flavours.
S&W have a perfectly good boiler, but it is those intense malt flavours from caramelising the wort that we have gone to great lengths to create. To add further complexity they then added the sticky cooled stones to the fermenter to let the yeast have a real treat feeding on the “wort candy” during fermentation.
Get in quick before you miss out.

Beer O’Clock Feature - 961 Beer Lebanese Pale Ale (6.3%)
Today’s Beer O’clock feature beer is 10,000 years in the making!
961 Beer began during the dark days of the July 2006 siege on Lebanon. Tired with the lack of quality beer in Lebanon, Mazen Hajjar and his friends started to brew beer in his very own kitchen. The first batches were brewed in 20 liter kettles. Granted that war and blockades are not the ideal conditions to start a company, alongside everyone telling them they were mad to even consider it, they went ahead with it anyway. They decided that brewing a good beer for a great country was what they wanted to do the most.
When 961 Beer officially began brewing they were one of the smallest breweries in the world, and the only microbrewery in the Middle East (and still are). Although 961 Beer now brews nearly 2 million liters per year, they still insist upon making beer using the very same principles: traditional techniques, quality ingredients and love.
This beer is an innovation inspired straight from the Lebanese spice markets, and filled with Lebanese tastes. The Lebanese Pale Ale is based on an English IPA. It uses Lebanese herbs such as za’atar (wild thyme), sumac, chamomile, sage, anise, and mint in the brewing process. This gives the beer its distinctly Lebanese flavour and fragrance.

Beer O’Clock Feature - Bear Republic Brewery Red Rocket Ale (6.8%)
Just in and icy cold for beer o’clock today is the Red Rocket Ale, a bastardised Scottish style red ale that traces its origins to Bear’s homebrew roots.
Winning a slew of Silver medals at many American beer festivals, the Red Rocket is a robust red ale, but still goes down smooth. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavours.
