The beer chosen to launch Mountain Goat's Rare Breed limited release longneck range is back. First time out it was a big yet beautifully balanced blend of powerful, aromatic hops and rich malts backed up by a firm bitterness. There are no bottles this time around (at least not yet) but it'll be hitting a handful of taps around Melbourne this week. No bad thing as, while it was a tasty drop out of the longnecks last time around, when Crafty sampled it in draught form at the brewery it was quite possibly the best Goat drop ever to pass its lips; one of the brewers even said it was the best beer he'd made - and no one's as critical of beer as the person who brewed it.
