Kiwis love their beer. So do I. I've already spent something like 1,200 bucks on beer so far here. OK, so that's a bit of an exageration, but beer and I have definitely gotten some quality time together.

I present to you exibit one. Tui

Not the best beer you can get here, but much better than the typical American brew. It's named for a local bird. It looks like it has balls on its chin.

I'm doing my share to keep that brewery in business.

Speaking of breweries, I toured one yesterday--The Lion Red factory. It was like going to the Willy Wonka factory. It was really cool...about a 90 minute tour with some cool exibits and such. And of course tasting--20 minutes worth. We got to serve ourselves from the tap. Plenty of Lion Red and Steinlager (which is much better out of the tap than in those shitty green bottles).

Anywho, tomorrow, I'm off to Paihia, in the Bay of Islands. Lots of cool stuff to do there, I hear. Hopefully the weather will be nice.
