    Specifically in Melbourne, but if not that then in Perth? Any suggestions for the best place? Thanks guys!

    I can only speak for Perth. Three main shops, IBS, Mane & Cellarbrations Carlisle. Some fresh Cantillon is not that far from our shore. No Lou Pepes though.

    If you come to Carlisle, make yourself known, always happy to chat or hold stock if necessary.

    Maybe have a chat with some of these Aussie BA's for trades if you can bring some stuff along? Myself included!!

    Slowbeer in Melbourne usually has some - but email ahead to check. Chris is pretty cool and may hold stuff for you.

    There won't be a lot floating around until the new shipment hits I would imagine.

    There are a few places in Sydney still with them on the shelf. Not saying where

    I thought Lukie had hoarded the complete stash of Cantillon in this country. Clearly not :slight_frown:

    Probably the best places in Melbourne would be Purvis Cellars, Purvis Beer, Prince wine store, Slow Beer (still have Drie Fonteine Oud Gueze as of last week). Also could try Carwyn cellars and Smith St cellars. Good luck but I'm pretty sure Melbourne is Cantillon dry at the moment.

    I managed to score 16 bottles of gueuze. That is more than the allocation shops received. Going to bring six of the suckers to the Feral staff party.

    Have you heard anything about Oz allocations for the LPs & Fou Foune this year?

    Nah no idea. Last I heard about LP's was we were receiving none.

    Wrong answer Lukie :slight_frown:

    Becoming alarmed at the prospect that we're only ever going to get the standard range from now on.

    Which would mean the end of one of the biggest positives about being an Aussie beer geek.

    I don't know anything about that one, but the one that does exist is being worked on :wink:
