What?! I am going to talk about a lager...and it is Winter?!
OK, not the norm for me, but then the weekend wasn't really a normal one anyway, and seeing this beer for the first time, I just had to try it.
Was meeting up with my mate Duff in town from overseas, had found a pub near where we were about to check out a gig, that was also showing the Wales Vs Wallabies rugby match (another good game, with Australia coming through again at the end. Poor Wales, they deserved at least one win on this tour). Over the course of the game had a couple of Guinness (Yep, an Irish pub) and also tried out the pub's Bailey's Chocolate Mud Cake (not bad, but no where near the Toffee filled Bailey's Ice Cream from last my last post), when I spied in the fridge a beer I hadn't tried.
Sunday morning was a it of a struggle, but managed to man the bbq at Joel's place, then get to Elsternwick Park to man the Goat bar that had been set up for the Community Cup down there. Hand eye co-ordination may have been a little diminished while doing a continuously pour for most of the hour I was on, but I mustn't have wasted enough beer as we still had a bit left over after the event was all over (meant we could enjoy a few afterwards...well, as much as we could enjoy after the night before).
Cheers to Duff and the gang, and also Sam and the Goaters for a great weekend, filled with almost way too much laughter than my body could handle, not quite enough dancing (guess something has to give when you are flicking between parties), but just the right amount and pace of beer consumption to ride the wave of tipsiness as far as it could take me to shore.
