    Just got the program. BIG!

    Who's going and what do you think you will be doing event-wise?

    Also, good chance to organise some BA catch-ups??

    Haven't seen the program yet - as I haven't been able to get to any of the places that have them already (and am not in industry).

    Certainly hoping that they will have some good events. Any sour events like last year?

    Hard presses to decide which degustation(s) to go to....

    Last minute decision to fly over for the GABS, wont be attending any other functions but plan on checking out the Garage Project tap takeover at the Alehouse Project, the Liberty beers at BrotherBurger.

    As I will be staying Carlton can anybody else recommend and other places worth a visit, beer and food included?

    Both Pete and myself are flying over for the week so do say hi at the Alehouse Project night. We will also be knocking around the Taphouse on Tuesday and Wednesday. Josie Bones for lunch on Friday and at GABS as well.

    Cheers,

    Jos

    Looking forward to meeting you at Alehouse and Josie Bones, Jos. I believe you have met Adam while he had his trip in NZ. Thanks to him, WA has been enjoying kegs of Pernacious Weed, amongst other great beers!

    Cheers

    Is someone bringing over the Liberty stuff or are they doing it themselves only for GABS?

    Pretty sure Liberty & ParrotDog have been taken up by Better Beer.

    Agree with the Merge Like a Zip.
    Yeastie Boys Golden Age of Bloodshed was also memorable.
    Outside of GABS:
    Liberty Summit IIPA
    Raven/Boneyard/Mash Crematorium
    Lagunitas IPA
    Mornington Imp Stout (amazing)
    Moondog / Rockwell Truffle Stout
    Brooklyn Elijah Wood Ghost Bottle
    Wig & Pen Gueuze
    Both Abbey Collaby beers
    Sure I missed mentioning many, may other great brews but memory was impaired at some points
