Haha. Well...every german who comes to aussie/nz has a heart attack when they see alcohol prices. It's not quite as bad as say Norway but its v. expensive.
Firstly you dont typically buy single bottles or cans. Half litre cans are rare also
In nz you buy 6 packs or dozens. (330ml cans ot bottles) you would pay $10-15 (nzd) for a 6pack or a dozen for $18-25. (From memory).
In aussie 6packs are more expensive 20 bucks. Everyone buys slabs (24 cans). You typically pay $50(Aud) for a slab. Most economic way to drink beer.
Wine is v. Cheap. Punks drink goon sacks a lot. I can't do it anymore. I black out and throw up a lot.

Also... if you were thinking of a holiday down under, forget about schnapps ... its about $8 a shot. At a cheap pub.
God imiss germany. I have my flights for st pauli match... see u at Onkel otto for reasonably priced Mexicanas.

Lol yeah. Usually when kiwis move to europe, they discover cheap booze, squatting and cheap drugs. Burn out after a year or two and move back down south to regain sanity. Usually everyone returns a few kgs lighter, nmissing a few braincells and a few years of their lives. Now i just come for visits

Well, not until you've reached the craft beer snob stage. I just bought a 6 pack of Coopers and it was $17. Could've got it slightly cheaper if I'd bothered to walk down a small hill and back up though. :baton:

17 dollarydoos for a 6 of coopers would be a bargain over the ditch
I liked it when coopers did that homophobic thing on tv last year. They dropped the price for 6 months. Lots of local punks refused to buy it. I reffered to the slabs as "boxes of hate" and embraced the cheap slabs with glee

After last Friday, and the pain and suffering on Saturday, and the jadedness, lethargy and self loathing on Sunday, I am having a dry spell. *shudder

Hmm yeah my hangover lasted 2 days from saturdays exploits. Started drinking in a skinheads garage, ended up hanging out at two seperate bars until last drinks. Memory gets a bit foggy about 4am. It got messy i know that. I ran out of money at some point and transferred some of the band fund into my account to continue doing shots. ...( im glad none of my band mates use punk as).
Age makes hangovers intolerable. This Peter pan shit is easier said than done

Whats that poncy bottle shop by the basin reserve in wellington? I think it did flagons of the shit. Then we would smash them back in Aro park.
I imagine rent in aro valley isnt quite what it used to be. I also imagine there is a lot of moustaches there now... and cafes thar probably only serve coffee in 'keep cups', so the middle class can feed their conscience while they feed their over fed faces. Cunts. Students ruined that area. ( I was a student when i lived there... wheres my keep cup? I had flagons i suppose)

I get my Emerson's from the supermarket- much cheaper. I do go past the brewery every day though. Dunedin has a fair number of wee breweries, which is awesome with me generally being a one beer wonder these days. Sours are very hot right now. Not so keen- I can't do a pint, halfway down it begins tasting like bad homebrew cider mixed with some acidic goon like Coolibah dry white.
It is such a nice day here, I want to be killing weeds in my garden and drinking beer...

Ah yeah regionals. Bless that place.
Garage project sounds like hell, I bet they have a coffee infused I.P.A. Noone actuslly likes it, they all sip it reluctantly and smile and nod, fearful of being socially rejected by all their androgynously clad mates. Donning their dads jumpers and socks, calling it norm core. Wtf is norm core. I hate everyone born in the 90s and later. Bunch of pretentious i.p.a swilling, fixie riding cunts.
And on the subject of fixies...bicycle couriers arent cool, they never were, its not a subculture, its a stupid fucking job taken up by pretentious morons who like swerving all over the road whilst sipping cold pressed lattes. Cunts. All of them. Delivering packages to yuppie apartments and office blocks, yeah, real alternative. Id sooner drink at star bucks. Atleast theres no hipsters talking about fixies and polluting the general area with the scent of a beer so obscure they only ever made one bathtub full of the shit. 'Brewed locally' can also mean "too shit to be exported"

All the couriers I knew had short blacks at Brazil, and Woodstock in their water bottles.

I havent yet yelled at kids on my front lawn. Although this young kid was postering socialist party posters in my neighbourhood last night. He was covered in spots. He is probably an 18 year old doing his first year in politics and anthroplogy, full of idealism and new hair in strange places. But he postered over one of our gig fliers.
I yelled at him. No lawn involved. Poor kid shat himself.
Maybe the english staffie and the guy with me at the time caused the intimidation. Either way, if you are littering the neighbourhood with images of Che Guevara , you deserve a bolloxing. Why do young uni students idealise che guevara... he was a pretty naughty man.
Now he just sells cigarette cases with images of himself on them... easy come easy go i guess

Tall boys of Jever? Delicious. I found a bottle shop in melbourne that stocks Krombacher, also delicous
Also on the tallboys.. i started referring to them as "David Langes", it hasn't caught on yet, but i remain optimistic
