What's dented and tastes like shit and costs us a fortune? The Carlton kegs from the tram accident that Fosters have billed us for. Assholes.

Australia v Oman in the Asian Cup tonight, and we're playing it on all screens at 8pm. Don't let the rain worry you, it will be showing on all screens and projectors inside, and there's plenty of room in the undercover area of the beer garden. And it's steak night. What more could you want?

We have some great beers pouring tonight, including some freshly kegged and tasty brews.. the Rocks Pale ale and the Holgate ESB (on the hand pump) are as fresh as they come, and they're both tasting real good. Also sorry for any confusion - trivia nights start back up on Feb 4th, not this week. Funky Bunch has made a mistake there, but they're good guys so keep your hats on and have a beer instead.
