About Julie


  1. Mr NQN would love this on a hot day like today! πŸ˜€

  2. Great drinks my friend, such a range πŸ˜€


  3. I’m so glad you shared this Aussie beer. πŸ™‚ When I moved here I had no idea what beers were good and slowly but surely I’m learning. πŸ™‚

    • Hey Krista,
      I think the key is to taste all the beers in each area you, just like wine tastings. This way you meet the brewer and get to know the label and product before deciding on a favourite and purchasing.

  4. I love any micro brewery beer and today it is so hot I would love an ice cold beer right now πŸ™‚

  5. I’ll have to keep my eye out for this. I love the duck bottle. πŸ™‚ I’m sure the insides taste really good too!
