BEST LOCAL BEER: BARONS BLACK WATTLE ORIGINAL ALE

I must confess from the outset that I’m not much of a beer drinker, but a beer from a company that seeks to ‘play by its own rules’, with a vision for aggressive world domination (exclusive to the realm of beer- there’s no need to get concerned just yet) may just change my mind. This Barons beer is brewed locally in Sydney, and has taken out a few awards already, despite being new on the scene. Such a different beer – with its base of toffee and caramel and hint of a mocha –would not go amiss on a lazy Sunday afternoon with a bunch of mates. (Jade Tyrrell)
