As a lot of us Sydney guys have not met, what is going to be our secret signal/handshake ?
Or is Linz going to be our common link as I think he has pretty much met everyone :D
Where are the AHB shirts when you need them B)

but what if..............................


DON'T GO!!!!!!!!! :( :angry:

Heck...That AINT gunna happen!!!
Because of my extended stay over in California & Canada I have a somewhat Calfornian/Canadian accent and can get quite loud after a few.......
OK how about this. If the AHB guys wants to meet up maybe the Giraffes would be a good meeting point. You will see what I mean when you get there. Just stand by the Giraffes with a Pilsner in your left hand.
Just becareful ...after 5-6 Pilseners the Lions attack!!!!!

Do we want little stickers to write names on to put on your shirts??
Nah, just look like a geeky homebrewer taking notes of all the beers you're tasting......

hahahah, yeah but that will be everyone in the room. :p

Maybe the guys wearing beer related clothing. Doh, that will be everyone in the room too :D

Maybe the guys with liquid grain storage facilities (beer guts). That probably won't narrow it down either :D

So the giraffes and Linz it is.
See you all tomorrow.

The meet up has been and gone.
On the big screen was Aus vs Sth Africa. Good to see that Aus scaped through.

Good to meetup with Hopeye, Linz, Trev, Rubes, Wreck and a few others.

Here are a couple of pics.
L-R Crusher, Pete, Linz, Hopeye, SomeRandomGuy, Rubes.


PS: Trev had departed by the time the pics were taken. Also note the Giraffe.

Usual suspects again plus Gerard (yes the one with the glasses)

Maybe a better report on the beers tomorrow.


Looks like a good night. I'm sorry that I couldn't make it. I spent the night in Sydney for my wife's birthday on Saturday night.

Even got to go to the James Squire Brewhouse and the Australian Hotel. That Australian Hotel is a beautiful pub, and the beer aint bad either. Go the bock. I thought it was my birthday.

Yeh Jase, Good beer alright , Im coming down to Sydney next week for a few days and will be staying with rellos at a place called Tahmoor,[about 70km s/w of Sydney on the way to Canberra]. Right next to Tahmoor is a place called Picton and the pub called the King George is where they make that beer they serve at the Australian hotel at the Rocks, the bock is called Barraborong Bock ,the lager is a german style and its also good, the place is called Schearrs little brewary.
Guess where I will be most of the time Im down there. :chug:
Small bit of trivia.

The Australian Hotel used to be owned by Geoff Scharer. Hence his beer being on tap there. The Australian Hotel has 80 Australian beers. Scharer's little brewery at Picton is behind the King George IV Inn.

Try the bock, it is sensational. I had a mouthful of the lager, not bad at all.

Sorry to get off the track of Paddy's. Can't wait to mread the beer reviews.

Hey Jase, I will tell you a funny story about the King George in Picton, when they stopped serving commercial beers about ten years ago I was in the bar enjoying a bock when a bloke walked in and asked for a schooner of Tooheys, Geoff said sorry we dont have Tooheys here, the bloke said alright Ill have a Reschs,sorry mate we dont have any of that either, we only have beer we brew ourselves, the bloke scrathed his head and said well Ill have a bourbon and coke then, well I nearly pissed myself laughing.
Great to meet the guys on Saturday night and put a face to the names. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves and the beers.Winning the rugby was a bonus.
We will be making this a regular monthly event. At this stage we are going with the last Saturday of the month, making August 28th our next tasting night. There will be a few different beers. A Wheat beer and an Irish Red Ale are planned. Pilot brews are on the go later this week.
Looks like there's a Wreck impersonator. I didn't make it! B) :blink:

Doh, It was Crusher. Sorry Wreck.

No problem. What's the saying? Imitation is the greatest form of flattery...

Looks like it was a good night. I'll definitely have to make the next one.

Doc, almost got it right,Todd & Crusher are one & the same. Second from left was a friend of Hopeye.I think it was Steve. Please correct me if i'm wrong Hopeye & I hope you got home alright the next day everybody had a great night. The rugby just topped it off.Many thanks Gerard for putting it on, you are a great host. My wife had a great night & I think Trevs wife Sandra also did. Hopeye, i've got them starters for you from Saturday night from Rubes. WE just dont know what they are. Hopefully Rubes can set us straight. All in all it was a great night. It was good to meet some of the Sydney lads.
Yes, both SWMBO and I had a great time - If only I hadn't been delegated as driver :( Actually it was good that a few of us did have the better half with us, Mrs Trev and Mrs Crusher were both enjoying the Pilsner and now I have a great excuse to go back next month.

Never mind though as I had a shocker of a cold but it hurt just a little to watch everybody else (oops - Linz was driving as well), almost everybody else having a few.

I enjoyed the Pale Ale, thought the Amber was nice but just a little sweet for my taste but of course the winner was the Pilsner.

And many thanks to Gerard, not to mention the Chocolate Mousse and Porter combination ------Yummmmmmmmm

Great to finally meet up with a few more AHB'ers, and see you all next time.


(PS - Doc, go the Wallabies next week)
