I got the first one from a mate who spent the night drinking Becks during one of the Australian F1 GP's. From memory you got one for every three beers you had.
The other I got from the same mate when he went to work for a brewery and Becks wasn't in their product range, so he had to re-brand me :lol:

Hey barfridge,

I did a bit of a search and found that the original site seems to have the cheapest price but don't ship to Oz. But these guys do for only $20.24 US and the rings are 1 - 2 $9.95 ea. 3 - 11 $9.75 ea. 12 - 23 $9.50 ea. 24 + $9.00 ea. So if we can get 10 or more the rings will cost about $16 Au ea + postage out to everyone in Oz.

Don't mean to rush you I'm just excited :p

Hello, it's Barfington, your ringmaster with an update-

It looks like eparty unlimited is the supplier of choice for our rings. Thinkgeek came in at US$9.95 each + US$40 shipping, so they're out. The final cost will depend on how many rings are ordered, which obviously changes the unit price and the shipping cost per unit. We should be able to come in under $20 Australian each, including postage to anywhere in this wide brown land girt by sea.

The next step is to place the order. Could everyone please post in this thread the following information (just cut and paste is easiest)

AHB Name:
Qty required:
Ring Size(s):
City/State:
Postage Option (regular/express/nil):

As for ring sizing, there is a page HERE dealing with the subject. A firm fit on the middle finger is recommended by the ring makers. The rings come in US sizes 8 to 15.

Perhaps for quite a few of you we could save on postage by shipping a few rings at a time to one person (I'm thinking the flocs in Adelaide). I should be able to hand deliver to most Perth people.

As for postage once the shipment lands, there are 2 options:
- express post 500g satchel ($6.50)
- parcel post 500g satchel ($4.50)

As for paying me, direct bank deposit is the easiest. I'll PM those details when the time comes. If you wish to pay another way, feel free to contact me.

I'm sure I've left something out, so feel free to ask Barfenterprises, where our company motto is - "Plase your ring in my capable hands, and your experience will be pleasurable".

The credit card opener would look excellent with www.Aussiehomebrewer.com on it.

Lager, that would be a good idea. The AHB hop logo would look extra nice etched onto something like that.

barf, put me down for one:

:lol: :lol: Did you read the dimensions on that. More like a brief case version than a wallet version.

Borret brewing parafinalia is working on one of these cards too. :ph34r:

Actually I still like and use my one that is as thick as a credit card and fits in your wallet like a credit card. And it is always on me, as I always have my wallet. Unlike my car keys which I like to leave at home when I'm out for a few.

Beers,
Doc

OK, So it's not quite the polished finish product of Doc's one but this is my first attempt. Work's well enough. Thanks for the profile Doc. :beerbang:

Cheers
