Maybe not a constructive post, and possibly fuelled by some local swill entitled 'Old Vienna', but it is important for people to know that one fine day I will own that sweet car in Supernatural. The Statesman may be rockin' and all, but it isn't Henry Ford's favourite colour and it has two too many doors.

As Alan would say, that is all.

How are the local brews? And what do you pay for them? Are the pubs similar to Australia, or do they have a different vibe/feel?

Good to hear you're doing well!

The beers are a mixed bag. I need to do a more thorough investigation but it seems to be the usual story that the domestic tap stuff is average but the microbrew stuff is good. The beer seems to be more European in flavour than Australia or the US. Bottleshop prices are about on par with home and pubs may be a little cheaper. I've only been to one pub so far so I can't yet comment on ambiance.

Awesome.

Not sure if you've been in contact with Bob, but since you've been gone I've done 2 brews.

First was a Coopers draught, nice and simple. I tried one for the 2 week test over the weekend and it seems to have come out pretty good. Looking forward to the 2 month mark where I can get properly stuck into 'em.

Second brew is my attempt to produce Beez Neez. It's a wheat beer with wheat malt extract for the sugar and a touch more than half a kilo of raw honey. Pretty sure i'll be bottling it tonight. It's all very exciting! I look forward to comparing notes with you and leeching off some of that experience.

Sweet! Good work.

I do know what Beez Neez is... I have spent many a night bending elbow in salute to it.

Sexy, sexy Impala
I love that car. I just about wept when it got smashed up by that truckie hopped up on demonic No-Doze. The Impala is the true star of that show, WB pin-up boys be damned!
