Brew Review: Rodenbach Grand Cru

Brew Review: Rodenbach Grand Cru

The Belgium brewery, Rodenbach, is entirely devoted to making one particular, very different type of beer. It’s not a lager or a pilsner and it is by no means an “easy drinker”.

The flavour can be described as almost “winey” with a tart acidity. This is due to the way the beer is aged: Not in your conventional casks, kegs or barrels, but in huge wooden tuns that are as high as the halls that they stand.

The Perfect Negroni

The Perfect Negroni

The Negroni: festive in colour, herbal in aroma, citrusy in taste and absolutely perfect for summer afternoon drinking.

The story goes, Count Camillo Negroni, asked his bartender to strengthen his favourite cocktail, the Americano by adding gin rather than normal sodawater. The Bartender then added an orange garnish rather than your typical lemon to signify a different drink. 

Is Pizza Making Getting out of Hand

Fanaticism surrounding the sanctity of the Neapolitan pizza, better known as the Margherita in Australia, has reached new heights in recent years. Chefs around the world have been known to spend tens of thousands of dollars on specialty pizza ovens in order to achieve international “Vera Pizza Napoletana certification”.

Last year one particular pizza chef from New York bragged that he had dropped $25,000 on a wood-burning pizza oven that had bricks made from the ashes of Mount Vesuvius to try and recreate the “traditional taste”.

In Los Angeles, some other pizza lovers have been paying $1,650 for three-day courses on how to “slap” dough and grind plum tomatoes to make the perfect traditional margherita.

At Forester’s Hall, we don’t care so much for all this pizza snobbery. We’re just concerned about making the best and most delicious pizza we can. We also don’t care so much for sleep: We make pizza for the good people of Collingwood and surrounds till 2AM every night.

So give us a call, order a take away and grab one of Collingwood's finest pizzas at home or enjoy it with us in the Hall!
