G'Day Beer Lovers, I hope your attempts to raise awareness and funds for Men's Health initiatives is going as well as your no-Mo Growing is.
For those who don't know, MovemBEER is Beer Blokes very own fun and fuzz-friendly way to raise money for a good cause without having to subject your face to moustache-based attrocities that leave you looking like you've just joined (or recently escaped from) a religious cult. You know exactly what I mean.
Drink good beer instead. Make sure the beer has 'MO' soemwhere within in and pledge to donate the value of those beers to a Men's Health charity like Beyond Blue or Prostate Cancer Foundation or directly to a mate who is doing the real Movember.
Here are some of the beers that I have managed to squeeze into the frame;
MOntieth's Single Source MOuntain Goat Steam Ale MOrnington Pale Ale
all pretty obvious so far, huh?
What about these;
Victoria Pale Lager (this is not so much a beer I would be drawn to but it is certainly a Marketing Oddity)
McLaren Vale Vale Ale (a nicely balanced easy drinking ale with a nice hop character. They have been criticised for contract brewing despite promising to soon Make their Own)
and finally, and most obscurely ....
Kooinda Valhalla Golden Ale. You ready? Here goes. The Kooinda boys named their brewery Kooinda to sum up the origins of the company where four mates got together on weekends to brew beer in the backyard. Kooinda is an Aboriginal word meaning 'Happy Place'. The Aborigines presumably gave us this word because they had no further use for it. Same with the word for 'Let's Get Together and Have Fun' - MOomba!
I never said you had to be politically correct, did I?!
So you see, you can drink just about any beer and make it fit the criteria for MovemBEER. Send your best efforts to me and the best one, as judged by me, will win a signed copy of The Critics Choice - Australia's Best Beers.
