Beer, food and culture...

Posted on November 22, 2009 at 8:06pm 10 Comments

Beer, food and culture...

just came back from a great trip to Wellington. I decided to do a 'road trip', with my dad.

Now I have always had a good time in Wellington. I have been there many times, dating back to the 1980's. It has almost always involved impromptu meetings or happenings that turned out to be blinders. Dating back to one of first visits in the late 80's, I stumbled along to the (then) Cricketer's Arms and saw 'Paul Kelly and the coloured girls', play live. I… Continue

I am in Wellington Tony. Weren't you coming down? I can't find the old thread...

Great meeting you last night Tony. Good to continue to continue the "NZ Full NesloNZ PilsNZer" debate. Hopefully I'll see you in Auckland sometime, and we'll have a style confirmed by then. I've leant right over to no DMS but still reckon there can be low to no esters. It does not have to be a lager or an ale.

Was laughing to myself this morning about you approaching Colin Paige thinking it was me.

Good to catch up Stu. Drop me a line any time you are coming up.

So, from reading your gentlemanly advice to Danis, I'm guessing you've joined SOBA... About time!

Gidady Tony, can't make it to Galbraiths tonight but thanks very much for the invite!

Would love to, but it's my wife's birthday so I'm afraid I have to decline. Thanks for thinking of me - some other time, definitely.

Hi Tony - Saturday's visit to Hallertau looms large! My wife is giving me a lift across and will come and retrieve me when we're done. However we will probably go across early and have lunch (to keep my 6-year old entertained) so I don't know how this will work for you in terms of ride-sharing? We're up in Browns Bay but could cruise down the Shore to get you if necessary.

Drop me an email (martin dot bridges at gmail dot com).

And if you're free on Friday night I'm having birthday drinks at Galbraiths from about 6.30pm.
