    Local Micro's "swill" Offering

    One of Canberra's micros supplies kegs to a number of the region's restaurants. After regularly hearing/reading disparaging comment re the Mega's and their swill, I was amused to see a well presented tap handle labelled as "SWILL" while dining out yesterday . And "SWILL" was sandwiched between...
