Kodak Moments

From Thursday: A wee bike ride in the hills above our neighborhood. And a glimpse into what motivated me to move here.

    Nice blog. Horrified by the beerception you fellas seem to be under.

    Consult http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in_New_Zealand for great craft beer victory.

    Yeastie Boys

    I shall return in several weeks, by which point I expect a lengthy retraction regarding the state of New Zealand beer to be in print. In addition, I expect it to be written drunk.

      I will sincerely have to study this educational information you have provided me. Of those, I’ve only ever even seen Epic. A retraction may be a bit far fetched, as I come from the land of hyper-hopped, extremely available, affordably priced microbrew goodness. However, I can commit to producing an post, while intoxicated, about the elation of finding and consuming great Kiwi brew. When it happens.

      Make sure you do. We are watching very closely.

      If Hoppy-Goodness is what you want, I humbly submit the ‘Epic Armageddon’ for your perusal.

    The land looks beautiful. I have never been to New Zealand. I hope to be able to visit some day and see some of this lovely countryside for myself. The sea (or is it ocean? My geography is atrocious most of the time- I’m good at contour maps and that’s about it).

    Maybe I can go for a netball match or to watch the All Blacks.

    I can see why Lolcat would want to stand up for the local beer- even though they might do so with a bit of a tilt or sway. Locally made beer is always the best isn’t it, once those who make it truly try to meet the expectations of the people who buy their brews.
