Oh wow, I hadn't heard that! I'm sure that they'll be smart enough to keep it going as is...... Perhaps bottled C&B beer at your supermarket soon.....

I'm up on the shore this morning, so going to check out Deep Creek for lunch! I'm rather excited!

Yeah people were talking about it in Galbraiths yesterday, the beer is brewed under contract by Steam so I'm not sure what they will be doing. We were trying to look at how it could be a smart (anti-craft) business decision for them, which it presumably will be. Perhaps if they start brewing the beers at The Pride in East Tamaki they are hoping to take away a lot of Steam's business and put them in financial trouble? If that is the plan then hopefully a lot of small contract craft brews will be taken on cheap by Steam to keep production flowing and Lion's plan could backfire. It's certainly going to be interesting to see what their plan is and how it plays out. Enjoy your lunch and let us know how Deep Creek are doing, might give me the incentive I need to get over to the other side of the bridge.

The good George in hamilton is good but the beer is too cold and fizzy for my liking. Is there anywhere that does a decent hand pulled beer?

For a decent hand pulled beer up here your best bet would be Galbraiths or Vultures Lane in Auckland, Vultures have two and Galbraiths has about 8 of their own on handpull, Brothers Beer also recently installed one, not sure of options down Hamilton way if that's where you live? I wish we had one or two in every bar then I could do some casks, unfortunately that isn't going to happen for a while at least.
