Fuel your footy fever with a devastatingly good winter beer

Round 2, take two.

Footy fans REJOICE! After an unprecedented delay, AFL football returns to homes around Australia tonight with league powerhouses Collingwood taking on the Tigers at the MCG. Excitingly, tomorrow night ‘down at Kardinia Park’, the brown and gold of Guernsey of the Hawks will be appearing for their first game down in Geelong since they towled up the Cats by over 50 points back in 2006…

But with Patrick Dangerfield celebrating his 250th game, we are excited to see what the mighty Cats can serve up on their home deck!

As the dreaded COVID means that crowds will still not be allowed to attend the game, why not settle down in your lounge, crank the volume on telly and treat yourself to a dark beer… specifically KAIJU!’s Cthulhu on the Moon Black IPA.

Known for their fun, bold and distinctly comic-book style, KAIJU! is a range of hand-crafted boutique beer of uncompromising taste and quality from the Dandenongs and their seasonal Black IPA fills the void caused by winter’s chills year after year.

Delivering beauty from every angle, this AIBA two-time gold medal winning brew boasts a complex malt bill, balanced out with refreshing layers of roasty flavours, coffee and panela, and a herbaceous hop profile, pretty much making it the perfect brew in the smack dab of winter. Full and incredibly satisfying with flavour intensity and bitterness balanced on a knife’s edge, this 6.5% can is sure to appeal to anyone that love’s a decadent dark beer with a side of Aussie sport.

What’s even better about this type of beer is that a Black IPA can cut through fat and handle rich, stronger flavors with ease. You can pair it with fried chicken, spicy BBQ short ribs, a butter-ladened steak, shrimp stir-fry, or even a cheese burger with all the dressings – essentially all the favourite footy foods.

If you’re feeling fancy, you can even put on a cheese plate, with blue cheese, Cheddar, or Aged Gouda being the best pairs.

Go Cats!
