Pinot Noir Wier (stage 1)

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 7:11am 0 Comments

And so it begins...

"CAMRA's campaigns include promoting small brewing and pub businesses, reforming licensing laws, reducing tax on beer, and stopping continued consolidation among local British brewers."

Just replace 'british' with 'kiwi' and also throw in something about beer quality/mass production bla bla bla.

I call el Presidente!

Who wants… Continue
