Hi guys...

I was down at the OSB (Old Swan Brewery) Chatting to Hugh (The brewer there. A good bloke Has a Rauchbier on tap ATM!) on the weekend. He mentioned WA Beer week was back on this year after last years was canceled due to John Stallwoods (Nail Ale Brewer) accident. He wasnt sure if the opening on Thursday was for the public though. I emailed Clancys and had it confirmed that it was.

Hi Asher,
We are holding the opening down here this coming Thursday the 3rd of March. Kick off time is 8pm and you are more than welcome...
See you here.
Cheers n' beers,
Jane Dickson, Clancy's
I went to the opening at Clancys Freo in 2003 with Trash-Mash-Al. It was a fun night rubbing shoulders with most of the Pro Brewers in WA. Got to meet one of the Rogers from Little Creatures, the guys from Bug Ocean were there with a keg of their now famous Alt. ECU Brewing had a keg of pilsner there as well (diacetyl problems from memory ;))

Well Popped my head in to the opening of WA Beer Week last night down at Clancy's Freo..... You missed a ripper Goat (everyone!)... I Rolled out after 3 hours of FREE beer...

The following beers were flowing freely all night:
- Little Creatures - Pale Ale
- Wicked Ale brewery - Citrus Pale
- Old Swan Brewery - Porter
- Duckstein - Red Lager
- Colonial Brewing Company - Spruikers Challenge - Kolsch
- Bootleg Brewery - Wills Pills
- Feral Brewing - Belgian Wit
- Bug Ocean Brewery - Alt Bier

Some notes from the evening. (don't quote me on any of this....)

John Stallwood spoke about the future of WA Microbrewerys and bigger things to come foe WA Beer week. The plan for future beer weeks is to have a proper beer festival on the Esplanade with tents etc. Soon WA will have 17 Micro Breweries. Another German brewery is opening up just 1km down the road from the Duckstein. With another 3 in the planning stages for the Swan Valley. Margaret river will not only be for the wine buffs soon as quite a few wineries are teaming up with new micro's planned for the region ( ~7 all up including those already established). Cowaramup brewery is next off the rank, opening late this year. Pemberton has one pencilled in too! Duckstein has purchased a second hand brewery (currently in storage) and will be building a pub/restaurant in Margaret River. moving most of their production down there & shipping some of the final product back to the Swan Valley Pub.

All is good... apart from my head :party:

Asher for now :beerbang:

bugger....

It was a choice between that and going to the inlaws to fix the email on their PC. SWBO won that arguement. But it got worse: it turned out that you CAN'T use Internet Explorer to read your email !!!!! you have to use Outlook Express and it was working perfectly well, they had just forgotten that minor detail of using the right program to do what you want (grrrr)

That's just criminal Goat. I hope you dropped into bunnings on the way home for a tarp, shovel and a bag of quick lime, then took a quick detour through a pine plantation.

I have heard rumours of the existence of WA Beer week, and then after its all over, heard the glowing reports.
Do you have to be a Freemason to find out about it?
