Anyone else going to the Winterfest 2012 in Hamilton? I'll be the one with the VFFs. (Those weird toe shoe things as seen on xkcd)

Wife got me a couple of Three Boys Oyster Stouts for weekend sampling, I forgot how much I like this beer, especialy with a dozen of Bluffs finest. Also had a nice German beer who's name I must write down and post before the recycling man comes.

Just had a couple of Rayon Vert from Green Flash in the US of A. Now thats something different and bloody nice ... very hoppy and a little bit sour. Much better than a hop rocker!

Kaimai Pale Ale is a staple in the fridge at home for that first beer on a Friday (generally chased with a few Flying Fortresses and some Biltong)....

Have Mac's changed the pull tags on their bottles? I keep tearing out a V and leaving the cap on the bottle - quite frustrating. A fork through the plastic inner seal allows me to prise off for the prize. Is it just my exuberance ?

No it's not just you.  Same happens to me, although the plastic seal does seem to just lift off, no need for utensils.

Can you make dark beers in it as well? I see some guy just won gold for his Pilsner at a beer show using one of those.

It's not beer, but the Rekorderlig cider range is delicious. Moore Wilsons in Wellington has just started stocking them for a scratch under $5 each which is great value when they're over twice that in most bars/pubs/clubs.

I just discovered it in Queenstown last night. Very easy to drink. $15/bottle in the pub here but 2 bottles did 5 drinks!

Its nearly beer o'clock. Personally I have a couple of Macs Sassy Reds and some Chocolate Mooses (Meese? Mice? A moose and another moose?) in the fridge patiently waiting for me.

Dry July for me too XD
Can't wait to try the new Epic Hop Zombie and the NZIPA and the Nation Message in a Bottle.

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.
