  1. Monteiths Summer Ale?!?!? You have to get yourself down to Eureka (Albany St) and try the Emersons pilsner.

    Hope everything is going well for you in Dunedin.


  2. Thanks Andre. I actually tried the Emerson’s pilsner last week. An impressive brew as well.

    Speaking brews, when are you heading down this way so I can take you out for one?
