    Mell said she'd prefer to go to Lowenbrau for brekky (mango wiezen)!!! So we'll be coming along with our bub Kensi starting at the Lowenbrau - following the previously suggested order:

    lowenbrau at 9:00am for breakfast beers
    lord nelson
    harts for brunch/lunch
    Belgian beer caf
    (on the Ferry)
    Murrys - possibly lunch/arvo tea
    4Pines
    (Ferry Back then bus to Central)
    Schwartz and then home for us!!

    If anyone is thinking of brining their kids, feel free to tag along with us!

    I would have liked to come along to this and meet some of you fine folk.
    Unfortunately on this weekend I will be away with a bunch of hardcore motorcyclists, taking over a small town, drinking heavily and causing a general raucus, as men are want to do from time to time.
    As I indulge in megaswill from a keg, I will be thinking of you blokes. Yes I will.

    Sounds good.

    Ill be pulling the pin after the Belgian. There is no way I can sustain a pubcrawl over to Manly.

    Which is a shame as I have never been to Murrays at Manly.

    Start time
    How about 10am?
    Lord Nelson at 11am
    Harts Lunch at 12.30pm?

    Cause I am sure Harts would like to know when we are going to be there.

    Not long to go.
    Hope everyone's got their leave passes in order.
    I'll be there soon after 10, so I'll catch up with you guys if you're not still at the Lowenbrau.

    Lets be honest these days are never cheap.

    If you have 1 beer at each place (and you won't factor 2-3) each beer is still going to average out at $10 each
    Lunch is probably going to be $20 and travel from venue to venue is by foot, unless you are going to do the ferry over to manly section which is $14

    plus whatever public transport costs to get you to the rocks.

    So you will be able to do the math on what it will cost you based on what time you will start and finish. For me going from 11-6 I expect to spend about $150

    However what you get back in fun, and networking with your fellow brewer is well worth the cost of admission in my humble opinion.

    Yeah it's definitely not a cheap one. Depends on how thirsty you are.

    apart from drinking excellent beer, you can talk beer all-day-long, (without the person you are talking to glazing over when you discuss the differences between, i.e., Crystal 120 and Special B )
    the costs are probably well and truly offset by being a homebrewer IMO

    What time is the expected departure from Manly back to the city? Still trying to sort out my logistics.

    I have to be in Coogee around 7pm.
