floydbloke: Dryjuly why?

Is this some sort of organised charity/fundraising or just a self imposed abstinence?

I saw the Hop Zombie in New World today but felt it was too pricey at $11 for a 500ml bottle.

Opted instead for a "Sir Walter" from the Wanaka Beerworks. I was a little disappointed with it to be honest, too frothy and too yeasty for my taste.

I have 10x Hop Zombies in my wardrobe patiently waiting.

Ah, thanks.  Good on you and your fellow dry-folk.  Only 5 days until zombie-heaven.

Yeah, it is definitely a growing event. Try TradeMe if you do miss out, I have heard of tickets being sold there by people who can't use the tickets they have bought.

I'll be swinging by a vendor of fine potations on my way home to pick up whatever makes my mouth water. If the zombie is in the house, it may indeed be on the menu.

Not sure how many folks look at our frontpage or come directly to the forums, so this could have been missed - Luke doesn't post much in his blog here but this sounds promising...

You should subscribe to his RSS feed, just in case ;)
