that's a pretty decent list to get through already, I'd reckon!

another notable additions, on the north side of town: The Terminus in Clifton Hill. BEST burgers I've had outside of the USA, got about 6 or so taps of good beer... on Friday they had Mountain Goat Summer Ale, Feral Hop Hog, Feral Black IPA, Temple Ale (can't remember which one) and a few others... this place is going to be AMAZING in February when it opens its beer garden and extends the bar to 16 taps (from memory).

Oh, and Re: Temple. They had a change in head chef a few months back, the menu doesn't look to be quite so good anymore, especially seeing as though the Chilli is no longer on it...

When is the new Beiro opening up?
It's well and truely past Winter 2012.

Deja Vu is great but the tap selection and rotation is nothing like what it used to be, under the Beiro flag.

Actually, an update from Beiro Melbourne Facebook page. Dec 14th 2012
"Dear all, firstly we would like to apologize for the lack of updates on the new location we have been working hard to give you good news. Unfortunately, we are still facing 2 major problems. 1. Council has still not approved our awesome rooftop plans - but latest update is that we are close. 2. The builders have come back to us with quotations for the estimated building works that are out of our budget so we are looking for financing - and finding money is difficult ! If there are any interested parties out there who are passionate about beer and business and would consider to do a JV please contact us ! Hopefully we can address these issues soon. Till then, Thank you all so much for your patience and support"

OT, but I would have thought that a good drop... is in the bottle form, at least, in my opinion.

I hate both versions but for different reasons.

The bottle is rough as guts. On tap it is (and I hate this as a descriptor for beer) really smooth. Smooth to the point of being utterly inoffensive. An inoffensive AIPA? I was offended! It is much easier going than even local APAs. This is not a recommendation. Beer is timmid as shit.

Recently I went on a great bike/train/craft crawl in the inner north suburbs.
Mostly on bike paths and back streets.
We made it as far as the Tramway. It was 40C day, outside! ;-)
But depending on time and enebriation state, you could do the whole thing.

From the city.
Take the South Morang/Epping line out to Rushall Station (Fitzroy North).

Head east on the bike path for 50m to the

Terminus Hotel - 8-10 Taps of goodness to open the account.

Backup west on the bike path for 2.5km. Turn right on Lygon for 500m and right on Weston Street. (Total 3km)

Temple Brewery - 6 Taps of Ron's subtle craft

Head back to Lygon Street and right for 20m (Total 50m)

The Alehouse Project - 12 Taps of craft

South back down Lygon Street to the bike path and then left and go east for 300m. Turn right at Rathdowne St and go south for 300m (Total 1km)

The Great Northern - 20 Taps of craft and a top beer garden

East along Pigdon Street for 600m. Turn right at Rae St and go south for 700m. (Total 1.3km)

Tramway - 8 Taps of craft and great burgers

Either
Head back to Rushall Station (1.5km) or the Terminus.

Or continue south to Fitzroy. South down Rae Street and cross over Alexander into Brunswick St. (750m)

Brother Burger and the Marvellous Brew - 10 Taps of craft and great burgers

South down Brunswick St. (Total 700m)

Little Creatures Dining Hall - 4 Taps of LC/Whiterabbit craft

Back north to St. David Street and turn right. 100m. (Total 140m)

Rainbow Hotel - 10 Taps of craft

Some Fitzroy side streets to Smith Street and south to (Total 900m)

Grumpys Green - 8 Taps of craft

South down Smith St to Victoria Parade, turn left 200m to (Total 600m)

Baden Powell - 12 Taps of craft

Take the tram or trains home (Richmond North or Parliament Station).
