    I'll be in Sydney mid Dec - mid Jan with a week in Port Douglass. What are the best beer places to hit and where should I skip? Port Douglas seems to be very sparse in brew spots. Let me know, maybe I'll bring you a bottle of something good! thx!

    Port Douglas is a different story (or was when I was last there five years ago but have been to Cairns recently). Think one main street lined with designer shops and a couple of pubs only. Small. Think light lager styles everywhere on tap. Paradise, but not a beer paradise.

    If they have a BWS shop - head to the fridge and find some Hop Hog or Little Creatures Pale Ale, and also check the BWS thread on here.

    Have fun!

    Thanks much! I've had the Little Creatures and it is fantastic! Will definitely look for the Hop Hog and whatever other elixers I can find. First time to OZ.....I just might not leave!!!
