kiwitrc:BTR: Stoke, oh god now, its the only beer I have given away because it was so bad. I have started brewing my own, brewed a nice Mexican Cerveza the other week came out nicely at 5.75% Otherwise being from the south island I drink Speights.
But back to the OP I agree its a shame that these bigger companies are having to buy smaller craft brewers out because they can't make there own beer good.
Ha ha, I was taking you seriously there for a minute until the Speights bit :)
Whats wrong with Speights? puts hairs on your chest unless your a yuppy and prefer to drink Heineken and wax your chest
