MY favourite beer over the holiday period was Limburg Brewery’s German-style Pilsner.
This Hastings-brewed beer is on tap at Breakers establishments in Victoria St (Hamilton), Tauranga and Mt Maunganui, and if you’re looking for a reason to visit this cheap and cheerful chain, this is it.
Improvisation award: For New Year’s Eve I looked to tank up with take-home supplies of Deep Obsession from Cock & Bull, but they’d run out of pub pet tops. No sweat. Barmaid Jemma improvised by taking a screw cap off a bottle of Sprite and chucking it on. They’ve made beer ads out of less.
