Geez we got through the beer quickly yesterday...even in the rain!
Wonder how things'll go today...

Bigup to all the fellas who brought beers along and served them. It was bloody chockers around 1-3 o'clock. Some bloody nice beers on display too...Schooeys Coffee Stout off handpump, Trents Coconut Porter, Unters Amber...just to name a few. Docs Mind Warp Black IPA was also top notch too...well worth a ticket or two!

had a great morning catching up with a few friends, and tasting some great beers. the food was good..... the view was preety good at the Turkish food stand :icon_chickcheers:

Was a lot slower this morning compared to yesterday aparently...... and missed out on a couple of the murrys beers that i wanted to try due to them drying up :(

But it was a buzz to have my beer on tap for the public..... and seing peoples faces when they tasted it and got that classic smoked bacon hit in the mouth

here a couple snaps of the HUB stand and my beer on tap. Thanks to the HUB folks for their hard work in the tent and letting me run my beer :icon_cheers:

Yup - All agreed that it was the best time that they had ..... since the last B&T !

I have started discussions about having a stand at next year's B&T and the HUB's will arrange to get everyone RSA'd as well. We would also like to have brewers from Sydney and beyond serving their beer as well.

Hi Guys,

FYI, i came up from Sydney with a bunch of mates. We did all day Saturday and got around all stands. We did our favourite ones more than a few times. They voted your beers as allround the best followed by Murrys. Only complaint was you ran out on Saturday a bit early for them.

Some great beers there guys.

A nice day out up at the gaol. All the HUB beers seemed to be well received, and rightly so.

Big thanks to MHB for lending us the magic boxes and other equipment!
