    Jono, you managed to try a Speights Summit? The Speights equivalent of the Steiny Pure. Far better IMO. You gonna be back in NZ for Feb 7's but you back for New Years etc? And for the 7's are you wanting me to try get you a ticket or are you gonna take care of that yourself?

    Speaking of which:

    The 2009 NZI Sevens tickets will be on sale at 9am on Wednesday 17 September! For more information, [link=http://www.nzisevens.co.nz/Tickets.htm]click here.[/link]

    In no particular order:
    Speights
    Speights Summit
    Montieths Celtic
    Crown Lager (yes, Ozzi I know)

    That's a toughie. I like lagers draughts and dark beers.

    Dark:
    1. Emerson's Organic Oatmeal Stout
    2. Speights Porter
    3. Monteiths Black

    Draught:
    1. Speights ***
    2. Speights ***
    3. Speights Distinction (just to be different).

    Lager:
    1. Speights Summit (Coz I like summit to drink....)
    2. Macs Gold
    3. Steiny Pure

    Personally I drink dark beers when I go out. 1. Can't drink as much 2. Don't end up making a charlie of myself 3. Clear head in the morning.

    Of course I haven't had one, there ain't no beautiful Speights here in Canada that's for sure and must say I do miss it. Rach and I do live with a Beer Rep so we haven't ever had to buy alcohol since, we have this awesome Pilsner fridge that is always choca block full of beers.

    Heineken
    Corona
    Coors Light
    Canadian
    Miller Genuine Draft
    Pilsner
    Rickards White

    So yeah no problem with the beer supply over here. Gonna be weird when we move out and have to actually pay for the stuff!

    Mark i get home on January 9th I think after spending xmas in the UK. We are definitely keen for the sevens, will try and get tickets ourselves, but I would just try and get as many as you could (as will we), not like you won't be able to find a buyer for them!

    Pfft, NZ ski hills [face_talk_hand]

    j/k, have a good one mate.

    Off to Mount St Helens camping this weekend. It's a holiday on Monday (long weekend!) so leaving here on Friday arvo and taking the ferry south to Washington. Going to a Seahawks (NFL) game Friday night in Seattle, then driving to the volcano Saturday morning. Hope the weather is good so we can go climb the volcano etc. Might head out to Astoria (where Goonies was filmed!) on Monday if we have time before heading back to Canada :)

    Holy cow.

    I have done shots of Absenth, but it even says on the bottle, do not drink neat. Have it with coke or something. Two flatmates and I finished a bottle one night, that was messy. Obviously southerners can' handle their p1$$ haha!

    But on a more serious note, the mother watching him die twice in the ambo and once at hospital... not that cool eh! :(

    Bit extreme banned the sale of it in southland though. Knee jerk?

    Any alcoholic beverage that says "do not drink neat" should not be sold.

    Banning is a bit extreme, education would be better...and not that 'lollypop - pulling the the punches' education....the 'in your face - scary your pants off' kind that kids might actually get. It's all booze, in moderation. It's the few twits who go to extremes that ruin it for everyone. I personally don't drink at all, but I don't look down on anyone who does, only the twits who are so gone they are puking on friends and endangering lives with their stupidity. It's kinda like the huge tax they put on 'alcopop' drinks here in Australia, to stop teen binge drinking. Yeah, that worked, now they are binge drinking Scotch and Rum!!! o_O:rolleyes:
