    I didnae know there were Tassie's on 'ere. The ones with the odd third arm ect:)

    My brother and I were in Lonnie last month. Beautiful countryside, I really loved it.

    The Esk Brewery. I was walking around and I could smell this really strong smell and as I came around the corner I saw The Brewery and thought 'ahah' that's what it is.


    My Fav is from up in Stanley.

    The 'Esk' brewery is James Boags and Son these days. Best beer in Aus and all brewed in Launceston ;)

    Stanley is stunning. Actually the whole north west is stunning to be honest, especially when you start heading down the Tarkine coastline :)

    Lol I actually live next to the Gorge :) It was suppose to be flooding again this week which would've been good for a session, but never seemed to happen...

    These are from one of the floods mid last year...

    @ Boyzo - The Centre for Beer Lovers does great beer tours of Boags, highly recommended for anyone visiting Launnie ;)
