BLOG AUGUST FIRST INSTALLMENT
So far this August has been a pretty beery time, not as busy as it could have been but more than enough to scare the budget.
I started at the WHITE HORSE HOTEL. ST.PETERS,,

ROCKS BREWING , Convict Lager – or three
CORRIDOR, For a couple of cocktails, happy hour

I met a lady called “Chiller” I don’t know what that is short for, if anything who was selling glasses designed, to make the most out of the beer ,a glass for every style. It did seem to make a difference but I don’t think I can afford the glasse so will just have to continue to souvenir them.
