An Aussie classic - the beer Mountain Goat considered launching with back in the 17th century before plumping for the Hightail instead - is back for its annual jaunt around the bars and into the appreciative gullets of Australia. Surefoot Stout is a former trophy-winner that's barely changed since day one, because it didn't have to: a balanced stout that's perhaps slightly closer to the sweeter than roastier end of the scale and that is among the most quaffable of the dark beers that roll out of Aussie breweries every winter. It's making its 2014 appearance in draught form at good venues across the land. The big question is: will they have time in their ever busier schedule to create its hairier elder brother, Bigfoot...?
