Four Pines Kellar Door Imperial IPA

First Australian IPA I've found worth drinking. $10.99 a pop at Dan Murphys. Check it out.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Currently on tap at my house. German Pilsner, Robust Porter and hoppy amber ale. Sadly my keg of saison blew last night but should be enough warm days to get another one through in the next few weeks.

Unless you've finished your night out with a bottle of Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, then you're a loser and have no place on this forum with the rest of us.

$22 for a 350ml bottle (bar price), but a genuinely unique beer. It turns out that I really like beer that had been crapped out of the southern end of an Indonesian civetcat.

I bought a few bottles of the expensive Patron over here. It is about $400 a bottle in Australia and a quarter of the price here. Looking forward to giving it a taste.

U.S. I'm lucky enough to get 'real' duty free and tax free and the price difference is just incredible. The standard Patron Anejo is about 24 dollars here and about 50 or 60 in Australia.

So for those of us mere mortals, i.e. not TR, Aldi special ending today Garden Gangsta shiraz and cab sav is excess Qantas organic red relabelled. Certainly a bargain at $10- and worth cellaring for a few years or obviously at $10- you could drink it on a Tuesday arvo
