BEER OF THE MOMENT: A old concept renewed and improved on.
Every couple of weeks we will put on a beer for tasting. Something to tickle your taste buds. The Skinny that we had on recently went berserk and is now a permanent fixture on the Share Board.
This week we will have a Pilletti Lizard for tasting.
It is like an Italian Pilsner called a Moretti Pilsner.
Coming up after that will be our Amarillo Lizard This is our own invention and is a fruity pale ale based on the Rockin Timber but using different hops and yeast. Both these beers are now on the Share Board. Come in and have a taste if you are going past.
Just in case you are one of the minorities who does not own a Keg Fridge, we can help you out. Hire a Keg Fridge for the 5 days that we are closed over the Christmas break for only $50. This deal is only for our existing customers. Only 6 fridges are available.

MONTHLY RECIPE FEATURING BEER
In the spirit of Melbourne Cup, we bring you this winning tri-fecta
BEEF, BEER & BACON SPAGHETTI
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 streaky bacon rashers, chopped
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 leek (pale part only), thinly sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 6 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 500g beef mince
- 1/4 cup (60ml) Worcestershire sauce

- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 400g spaghetti
- Parmesan, grated, to serve
- Flat-leaf parsley, chopped, to serve
- More Laughing Lizard beer to serve on the side.
- Step 1
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the bacon for 4-5 minutes until crisp and fat has rendered. Add the onion and leek, and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and thyme, and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
- Step 2
Increase heat to medium-high and add the tomato paste. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute, then add the beef and cook, stirring, for 5-6 minutes until browned. Add Worcestershire sauce, Laughing Lizard beer and chopped tomato, scraping the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 30-35 minutes until reduced and thickened.
- Step 3
Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup (80ml) cooking water. Add reserved cooking water to the beef mixture and stir to loosen. Add the pasta to the pan and toss to combine.
- Step 4
Divide pasta among bowls and serve topped with parmesan and parsley.
