Hi All, With all the Christmas cheer going on, and to be had over the next month or so, I though it might be a good time to start a beer appreciation thread (sorry, no ciders please). Please add any thoughts re beers, old and new, and maybe cool new places to drink them. Ghostofdime, maye you can tell us a bit more about that joint at Alexandra Headland (its website is under construction). I'll kick off.... Here is Brisbane, the craft beer scene is really going gangbusters. It seems like every few weeks a new bar is opening or festival is on. I'm no beer wanker by any means, but its nice to have a change from XXXX Gold, which Queenslanders drink like water for some reason. If one finds themselves in Nundah village, I recommend this place that has recently opened: http://www.fitzandpotts.com.au/ Yes, its very hipster, but the owner loves and knows his brews, and is therefore an excellent host. He spends the evening wandering around talking about beer and giving out samples. They have about 5 or 6 beers on tap, and once a keg runs out, often it is replaced with something completely different, so if you sit there long enough you can go through about a dozen different beers in a session. Its one of those places that has old weird furniture, and is on a rooftop... it also has a $115 beer. Didn't try it though. Also features its own beehive - that's as hipster as Brisbane gets! Well, cheers!
