    Having beers with mates in Manly and it occurred that possibly the best beers in the country are all contracted.
    Mountain goat IPA, steam and hightail
    2 birds
    Whale ale can not confirm others
    Fish rock
    Pigs fly
    Broo
    Balmain brewing
    Steam rail
    Matso's
    Sail and anchor
    4 pines used to contract and may still do


    Can it be said the best beers here are all made by others? Is that bad for the country when NZ contracted beers are better

    Most of those names don't jump out as the "best beers in the country".

    Haha. Wow. I agree with Foles. Some of those beers listed are terrible.

    The 2 Birds one, I think the girls brew it themselves at Gage.
