Oh nice thanks, I didn't know about Finlays, googling now. Just told my mrs, shes clearly ecstatic at the news.
Big fan of Boston, I love their Nut Brown Ale.
I haven't been to Finlays but I have tried a few of their beers just prior to them launching the brewery. They were decently good brews then with their pale ale a very pleasant drop.

Supposedly a decent feed too.

I like the Colonial lids, nice to drink out of, bit like a glass so I feel all sophisticated and stuff.
Great beers but I always use a glass!

Whenever I see a carton of the pale ale on special for ~$60 I always jump on it.

Even at its regular price of ~$70-75 it's decent value - the old 375ml x 24 carton is pretty rare in these days of 330ml cubes.

Oh yeah they’ve just done a peanut butter choc one which is solid. A few to keep an eye for:
Omnipollo Noa Pecan - might set you back a bit this one but well worth it
Tiny rebel stay puft
Fathom imperial stout
Temple nitro espresso stoutini
To Ol Mr Brown
Read this post and started ringing all over town to find the peanut butter cup stout. Found a last can at one near my place.

Only one way to remedy this shitful day:

Ok. So this year I've knocked off Beerfarm, Wild hop, Eagle bay and Cheek monkey's from the Margret river area.

Am i right to think that I only have Bootleg, Black Brewing and Colonial to check off from that list?

Rocky Ridge: I've only tried the Ace Pale Ale which I liked, worth exploring the rest of their range if you come across it I reckon.
