    I can't come sunday as it's my birthday. That was the point :(

    It wasn't a lack of missing out because it was full, it was the fact it was on the 26th :(

    It's all good though!

    talked the 2 meter tall folk into letting me taste there 3YO sour when I was there 3 months back. It was not beer!! I would say salad dressing. Just acetic acid and not much else.

    Something from Boon without the Boon name I forget
    De Cam Oude Gueuze
    Girardin Oude Gueuze (which was tasting awful for some reason, I actually think it was a bad bottle).

    Would be worthwhile asking ADZA too if he can make it. Top BA!

    yeah definitely any perth BAs keen are welcome -- AZDA, sirob, anyone else I've missed?

    Not looking like it'll be a big crew, I probably left it too late to organise... but there should be a few of us
    - otherwise you'll find me at the bar having a beer with Scott(noMates)

    Another option is the Monk Oktoberfest on 22/9 (Saturday). Very keen on that.

    Asking ADZA, ha!! He is almost a myth, never materialising out in public..... Don't think I will be able to make the 15th unfortunately.
