    Drink their beer all the time and good to hear it is an option to take out on the river floats.

    The Sisyphus is currently my favorite barleywine. I have yet to open my 15th Anniversary.

    I would like to see Real Ale expand their distro

    I was down there recently, the Comac canning line is pretty slick.

    I saw something that looked like a Real Ale outpost under one of the SA Riverwalk bridges when I visited two months ago. Wanted to try it, but never saw it open, though.

    Bought my first 6 of Fireman's 4 cans. Made me so, so happy. Perfect river-floating beer.

    Fortunately, the Horseshoe is out of their jurisdiction.
