    I'm going out to Melbourne to visit my son who lives in Point Cook. Can anybody please recommend anywhere to try some good beer?

    Pouring just one beer!?! I'm pretty lazy, but that's outrageous. They better get down there pretty quick then. :)

    Rockwell and Sons, Platform Bar (formerly BBC Eureka), Milk the Cow (beer and cheese), Deadman Espresso (cafe with usually at least a couple of awesome beers), East of Everything, Woodlands Hotel, Junction Beer Hall to name a few? Some might be a bit far out though you can get to them on PT (if you have time). Check out Whisky & Alement on Russell St in the city.
