Little Creatures in SG!

Postby southernoise » 30 Dec 2007, 22:00

Was at 879 Cherry Ave, Bukit Timah Road to check out Smokinn frogz Kitchen helmed by Chef Alfie of Suria's Selebriti Chef... and found Little Creatures Pale Ale and Bright Ale at the pub Bar Bar Black Sheep on the same premise.

I can only say that Little Creatures Pale Ale is one bloody yummy beer. Hopheads will love it.

They have Duvel, Rogers, Boddingtons, Konig, Hoegarrden and a few others on top of the regular stuff.

Oh and the food there is pretty good too. Had their onion soup which was very nice and spicy lamb marquez aka lamb sausages which was excellent as well. Go check it out!

Keat.
Have just gone over your Brewery Trip to good old Perth, U did very well with where U went.
Looks like SG is getting a fair way towards being the Craft brewers in Asia as well. what with newest brewerys opening every other week.
U actually found me old mate TWOC,, was Roy there or was his daughter in residence. He is a great Brewer and has history that would keep anyone listerning for days. Someone asked about inside TWOC shop pics, see what I can do next week. Jump onto his site and look at some of the Gear,, note the Brewing Kits name starts with D,, thats what Roy reminds me of,, the Brewers of Hillbillies time.. has what I would say is the best supply of Malt ingredients in the state, so much so that places like LC pop on in when their suppliers are short,, doesnt mean to say that he passes on LC secrets but there is a Brewer that is in XXXXXXX brewers club that works at LC.. interesting thread U mentioned re LCPA Keat,, liked the input fron LC Brewery,, as we all know a fine drop,, see if I dont taste that when I get back,, LOL :lol:

been to Little Critters on 3 separate occasions, always a must-go stop for me when in Perth. We'll usually allocate at least 1 night stay in Freo just to have a proper sample of their beers. Last I was there, the bright ale seems to be better than the pale, the pale seems harsher now.

I was in TWOC once, the lady in the shop wasn't very friendly. She was following me around the shop with a very stern face, and was generally making us feel uncomfortable. Didn't buy many things, and left after a short browse.

hmm, to try Little Creatures beer perhaps ? Mind you, at more than 12 bux ++ for a 330 ml bottle, you have every reason to prefer brewerks .... There is something unique about the little creatures bright ale and ple ale though. Would love to know the recipe.

you mean the recipe ? :mrgreen: just kidding

but it is a top drop. hard to describe the taste, can only liken it to a subtle honey essence, though I doubt they would use it in their brewing process.

Smokinn Frogz Kitchen

Postby spud » 11 Mar 2008, 11:39

Bar Bar Black Sheep was that the name of the Bar interesting.
Went to your Smokinn frogz Kitchen on Sunday evening , should be called Smokinn Glands (of the female version) OMG they were there all loaded up and pointing to the sky.. me drinking buddy was beside himself..
Anyway as previously discribed, quite a few imported beers on offer, Little Creatures was popular by the lack of bottles in the Cooler but would say the Draft beers were getting huge hits. Hoegarrden was being served in what looked like pint + glasses, so big that the ladies had to use two hands to pick up.
We tried the first two rows in the Cooler before we got fussy and complained that the Cooler wasnt cold enough.
Found our legs and woddled off in search of some Curry Fish head,, now that was really worth the $500 Cab fare from Tampines..
So if U are looking for some eye exercise, Frogs tit sorry Smokinn Frogz Kitchen. Dont U just love Eye Candy..
:wink: Cheers Spud

yes it seems that they are having issues with the fridge. Was there last Saturday and the beer was not cold enough. Hope they're going to sort it out.

Bar Bar Black Sheep

Postby Raymond » 11 Mar 2008, 19:23

I was there 4 times in the last 2 weeks. The last time happened to be last evening :lol:

Attractive beer prices aside ($7 a pint), GREAT place I must say. Charming actually. I have tried all the beers, and now I just drink Stella all night all.
There are 2 stalls, Northern Indian Cuisine and Western Food. Both are value for you $$.

Speaking of Little Creatures, I kind of feel that the Pale Ale, taste very much like Canadian Blonde with Cascade, and the Bright Ale has strong note of Amarillo. I am going to brew another Blonde to confirm that.

the bright ale is said to have Saaz in it BUT i can't taste it. It felt more citrusy/grapefruit than spicy saaz. oh wait....

Little Creatures “Bright” is a top fermented uniquely new Australian ale. As the name suggests, “Bright” is a filtered beer with a striking golden clarity in the glass. We use 4 luscious malts including Pale, Carapils, Wheat and Vienna. The beer is full flavoured whilst soft and easy on the palate making it very approachable. The alcohol is 4.5% alc/vol. Bitterness is slightly lower than our highly charged Pale Ale and is accentuated enough to balance the smooth, malty character. The hop characteristics in “Bright” is derived from the use of highly aromatic New Zealand B Saaz Flowers as well as varieties from the North West of USA. Clean, distinctive, full-flavoured, smooth and very more-ish!!
