    I usually take a hipflask filled with scotch. At the footy I buy a 600mL bottle of coke, take a few swigs then go for a walk to a dunny cubicle for a good top up. Warms the gizzards on a cold night.

    Phoney, if you use the pump pack technique you won't need to worry about visiting the shitter. Just sit there applying some sunscreen to your coke bottle......it's the simplicity of that approach that has really attracted me.

    Maybe we could pressurise some pale ale into a aeorgard spray can.....tropical strength beer only.

    I reckon. A carton a day per person isn't anywhere near enough for a Bathurst weekend!

    Didn't they bury cartons on the hill weeks ahead and dig them up on the day?

    It's hard not to want to agree with you, however as long as it's a decent place and they serve variety then I don't mind too much the $10/pint charge for GENUINE craft beer. I do however have an issue with places touting themselves as having unique beers on tap, only to find out it's basically the Matilda Bay range (I like Ruby Tuesday, but it's not craft beer).

    I do like (in Brisbane) the Green Beacon as they brew onsite. I can justify that price when I can see the fermenters right in front of me.

    On a side note: Anyone noticed that Newstead Brewery are selling 6pk's for $26? What the hell? Especially when I'm less than 15k's from the brewery and EVERYONE around me stocks it. It reeks of facial piercings, man bun's and stank beards coated with quinoa.

    I was at the Noble Hops a few weeks ago, and made the mistake of ordering the Almanac Dogpatch Sour without looking at the price.

    Well that was a $40 stubby. Didn't realise until after it was opened.

    Yes it was great, but that is insane for a beer. Just insane prices

    I'll be popping into The Old Bank in Dubbo for a glass or 3 of Coopers Extra Strong Vintage Ale this weekend, so I'll let y'all know if the prices from hipsterish areas have seeped out into the country or not (I'm hoping not..)

    My local had 2 kegs of this on last year.... $6 Schmiddy ( yes its a wanky name for 320ml glass )

    Best bang for your buck beer I have ever drank. ^ of them and you felt all warm and fuzzy...literally.. :D

    In other news, was talking to the Coopers rep ( sorry, change that to having a few beers at the pub ) and the new IPA will be here very soon

    it's been getting around, looking forward to tasting it. Feedback has been good so far - like a hopped up sparkling ale apparently.
