It could be a line from an epic rock song:

"Sip from the can
Before you pour this Sleight of Hand."

Six String Brewing's April limited release offering is a magnificent, creamy, sweet stout masquerading as a "white" ale. Sleight of Hand refers to manipulation and entertaining, and that's where the team at Erina step in: what Six String have done is manipulate the meaning of the name Sleight of Hand, coupled with their own "Easter egg", to perhaps point their loyal followers towards Pearl Jam's Binaural album – released in 2000 – on which track 11 shares the same name as the beer. Sounds a bit far-fetched? Who knows with these musical brewers?

This stout uses coffee and cocoa nibs to create its rich, roasty backbone, while the creamy vanilla mouthfeel coupled with hints of chocolate completes the illusion: this is a beer that drinks like a stout but when poured into a glass looks like a creamy pale ale.

So, gather up all your leftover Easter eggs, stream Binaural, and let these three magnificent human creations complement each other.
