    Mad Brewers Hoppy Hefe

    There was a hold up due to having to re-package 8000 cartons caused by dodgy cardboard. Well worth the wait. The heff they had on tap at the Pumphouse before X-mass was very similar. Good to see a few wheat beers getting a run around the place. James

    On Tap @ Harts

    We had the BLK PLZ at the Taphouse a few Saturdays back. Served in a handle it is way too drinkable. Also on tap down the road at the Royal Albert they have Redoak Bitter & Redoak cider on tap too. The new pommie GF & her homesick brother got stuck into the cider in a big way Jimbo

    Best Pubs For Beer In Newcastle?

    The Great Northern right by the train station has Little Brewing Co. from Port Macquarie on one tap & the Pinchgut black & regular pilz + one other that we never made it to. Settled on the black for a night when stuck in Newcy last week. Great beers music maybe not quite to my liking! James

    The Riverview Hotel Balmain,sydney.

    Actually Pinchgut is more than a job, & the BLK PLZ is more than just a dark lager ;), even the Vale guys were getting stuck in when we were there for lunch today. Riverview Pizza's are awesome, actually the kitchen at The Riv is a big step up from the usual pub grub you get around Sydney...
