It's just like coffee cupping...but with beer. Awesome. Having tried all those beers, I personally rate the Squire Porter, and the Little Creature Pale Ale.

What was that beer you were telling me about that you specially imported or something?

The beer that we imported was Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel. Mouthful but tastes delish

There's a few missing Mike. I'm sorry but you just can't do the cascade range without the Blue!

Also, I dunno if you can get it in Tassie yet but the Little Creatures Bright Ale is really really awesome. Better than the Pale.

After all the beer, I felt a bit tired and had to go home. But I couldn't sleep properly.

For next time, thick base large pizzas please. Thin pizza + beer = bad.
