Some great beer and some great company

Its  always a surprise who knows who and how and that was just the case when ten of us came together at Hallertau on February 24th for the Slow Food Waitakere February event.
The beer tasting and brewery tour were great and there was much discussion over which beer we liked and why but what really stood out was how much fun and great conversation we can have when we sit down together for food and drink!
