Forget the bank overdraft, the pains in the chest and this mornings argument with the budgie - its time to down tools and contribute to the betterment of society....yes, it’s time again for the Brewtopia Boozeletter
We have dropped the price of our Customised beers…we are simple folk and our tiered pricing conked our brains out– so our new price for ALL custom beer is …yes $55.00! (Inc. Johnny Howard retirement fund tax)
Are we on the nose-candy? Why would we drop prices? Because the new brewery is up and steaming and we’re getting better rates – and so do you! So if you want to see your name up in lights, get CUSTOMERIZING NOW, before we awake from our delirium and jack the price up…!
DAVID v. GOLIATH (PART I)
So we get a call from the AUSTRALIAN RUGBY UNION see, informing us that Toohey’s had asked them to request we remove the IMAGE with two Australian Wallabies, LOTE TUQIRI& BRENDAN CANNON who are holding a bottle of blowfly at a Flying Doctors dinner BREWTOPIA sponsored early last year. Toohey’s sponsor the ARU and NSW Rugby and didn’t take too kindly to a couple of boofheads with their insignificant beer (that doesn’t even compete with Toohey’s) having their mugs on some obscure website that no-one visits.
This is the kind of gear we’re up for, now that we’re challenging a few of the old archaic tenets this industry still harbors, so standby for some silly-buggers in the coming months.
WHADDA FATHERS DAY GIFT
Even BIGGER news for you lot who canny be bothered with Fathers Day Gifts. Let us do the work for you. Buy Pop a case of DADS DROP!! It went so well last year we decided to go again & make a sexy label & use the first beer from the NEW BREWERY in the bottle! We’re very particular about our beer, but the new Saaz Hops we discovered are cracking! (For those uninitiated, Hops are a close relative of our ol mate THE HALLUCINOGEN)
Get DAD wasted this Fathers Day & take a few happy snaps of him draped over the Doulton. Just $55 (you guessed it) IT’S ALL HERE
‘THE HOFF’ BEER
OK, time to get the voting pants on. We have been swamped with HOFF labels on our BEERBUILDER. We want to know from you if you want us to whack up a Hoff Label. We’re thinking of calling it “HOFFTER’S” (ala Foster’s) or “CLOWN LAGER” (ah, why not!)
Here’s what to do: Email THEHOFF@BREWTOPIA.COM.AU and give it a yes or no.
Feel free to suggest any text you would like to see on the Hoff beer also. All responses go into the draw to win 5 cases of the beer if the ‘yeas’ win. It will also go on the site for sale and selected pubs.
ANY JOBS GOING?
As much we hate doing it, we think it’s time we gave to society and put into its hands one of our most loved girls behind the Brewtopia scenes.
If anyone is in the FASHION caper, knows someone who is, has a gig going or is looking for some new blood with plenty of European fashion experience, please drop us a line at BEER@BREWTOPIA.COM.AU. You’ll never get better!
DON’T TELL MUM I WORK ON THE RIGS...
…She Thinks I’m a Piano Player In a Whorehouse” is one of the funniest reads we’ve not had the pleasure of. The author is a good friend and did a cracking label based on the dope smoking orang-utan who served him a cocktail once. Say no more….
GET IT!! RIGHT HERE
DAVID v. GOLIATH (PART II)
Next, if anyone has seen the NEW Blowfly Label we’ve been knocking around (and you voted for) this time last year, you will notice its an old retro “Blowfly Beer ORIGINAL”
Only this month has the OTHER brewing company re-released its most popular brand, Victoria Bitter (VB) as a retro label with Victoria Bitter ORIGINAL ALE plastered across it, in a not dissimilar fashion to ours.
Time to get out the nun-chucks?
(I’m sure when they find out about our Hoffter’s beer; we’ll have been in another scrap…)
THAT’S IT FOR THE WEEK
Reminder about Fathers Day is coming to you over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled
And to finish off, here’s a FUNNY CLIP we found – takes about 3 minutes but I wish we’d thought of it!
Have a good rest of the week, & remember, if you’re going to have a crack, forget the wires and don’t bother with a safety net!
P.S. Anyone seeing the My Business magazine this week, keep your eyes peeled for the dashing pictures of myself and Larry on pages 19 & 20! (story is here for anyone with nothing to do WWW.MYBUSINESS.COM.AU)
