Get down to Bodega Underground

Head downstairs and get ready to shake off the week at Little Bourke Street's own basement taqueria Bodega Underground. Kick off your night with a snack fiesta and order up the tacos de pescado which sees battered fish, dressed in chipotle mayo and topped with avo and crunchy purple cabbage; or the tacos de pulpo with tender garlic octopus, pickled radish, and salsa macha with smoky charred chillies and pepitas. Vegans don't have to miss out either tacos de champiñones stuffed with adobo mushrooms and topped with Bodega Underground's vegan take on fried pork rinds. Then get the night really going with some cocktails, like the Espresso Martinez with tequila, espresso, dulce de leche caramel and fernet-vallet liqueur; a Pineapple Papi with mezcal apricot brandy, spiced pineapple, lime and orgeat; or a Aloe Señorita with tequila, elderflower, aloe vera and citrus. And if you're feeling really adventurous, why night try some smoky mezcal paired with an orange wedge and Sal de Chapulin (that's grasshopper-infused salt). Add in moody lights, a blues and soul soundtrack and the fact that it's open until 3am daily, and you've got a good night set ahead.

Meet O’Brien Lager 3.5

Australia’s top gluten-free craft beer baron O’Brien Beer is releasing another landmark brew, O’Brien Lager 3.5. It's the first naturally brewed gluten-free mid-strength beer to hit the market in Australia, meaning coeliac and gluten intolerant beer fans (or anyone) can get on board. The full-bodied lager counterbalances bitterness with a hit of robust malt and hop flavours, and the naturally brewed mid-strength sits at 3.5 per cent, making it the perfect summer brew. It joins O'Brien Beer's core range, which includes a Pale Ale, Premium Lager, Brown Ale and Light Lager, along with seasonal brews.  The key to making O'Brien Beers 100 per cent gluten free is the use of sorghum and millet, instead of the usual barley and wheat. The trick to ensuring it tastes great in getting the malting is just right. Over the years the brewery has perfected its own methods for malting the best gluten-free grains to use in the brewing process. The 3.5 Lager is now available to purchase at all First Choice Liquors nationally, otherwise you can order O’Brien Lager 3.5 from Rebellion Brewing online.
