    Forgot to add, Sunday 5th of September is Father's Day.

    Bring the wife, bring the kids, spit the dummy if they expect you to drive home, it's Father's Day, dammit!

    Yes, umm, cough, cough, the less said about the naming of the month, the better.

    "Kommen Sie zu Septemberfest" just doesn't have the same ring to it... :lol:

    Highly recommend this day, is extremely well organised. 2009 my family visited, $20 each got my son and I a commerative glass and coaster and many a fine tasting from the brewers themselves, not to mention the chinwags with fellow enthusiasts. This year being fathers day, i am hinting at a lunch in the winery, if its not booked up already. Then do the Bayside thing.
    I hope the change of date improves the numbers. last year being so close to Vicbrew probably wasnt ideal.
    Good Luck Guys n Gals.

    I tried to take haysie's suggestion and arrange a fathers day thing, the family had other ideas so it seems I'll be going to plant my hops instead ... maybe next year.
