Beer event review: Afternoon Delights Vol. 1, Rosé & Sours

Afternoon Delights beer event review.
Skip ahead

    One of the best beer events I have been to for a long time (and I go to a fair few) was Afternoon Delights. It was held at The Standard in Northbridge on Saturday 7 March. The motto for this event was “when it’s right, its right” and that was the perfect definition for this occasion.

     

    Wine or beer, it’s your choice

    When you booked a ticket, you had a choice of Yes Way Rosé (wine pass) or Hours of Sours (beer pass). Each option came with tokens to trade in for your choice of tipple, plus a $10 food voucher.

    The sours on offer were a wonderful selection which encompassed four of WA’s best loved and highest quality breweries.

     

    The beer selection for the night

    As I hadn’t tried it before, I decided to start off with ‘Berries on Parade,’ the latest seasonal release by NowhereMan Brewing. It was a beautifully vibrant red, probably due to the cranberries, blackcurrants and blackberries which gave it a slight sweetness, but with a perfectly balanced amount of acidity. Worth a try if you haven’t had a chance yet!

    I followed this up with a Rocky Ridge ‘Rose Gose;’ an extremely tasty beer and wine hybrid brewed in collaboration with LS Merchants, one which has been on my rotation since its release.

    Next up was ‘Asam Boi’ Gose by Beerfarm, a beautifully sweet and sour brew made from salted plums.

    I finished off with the Eagle Bay ‘Yacht Rock,’ a sour IPA, which was an interesting drop, but I personally found it a bit hoppy for my taste.

     

    Final thoughts

    All in all, it was an amazing afternoon and the event was planned out really well. The beer garden outside the back of The Standard was a spectacular setting for enjoying a few tasty brews and the DJ added to the funky fresh vibes. I’m hoping this becomes a series as I would definitely be interested in attending again.

    The event was hosted by Neighbourhood Events Co.
