Beer Tasting! November 9

This afternoon we tasted a selection of beers from Australia, including a local Stone & Wood Pacific Ale, the famous Coopers Sparkling Ale and the “no hangover” low carb Pure Blonde.

Many of the students already had their favourites, having sampled a few beers already in their time in Byron Bay, but were more than happy to taste them again, along with a few new ones they hadn’t tried yet!

After tasting the seven different types of beers, everyone enjoyed finishing off the cold beers on such a hot, humid afternoon in Byron Bay.

The activity inevitably turned into a great socialising event. The students were quick to turn the US election updates into a drinking game while sharing many stories about their own governments, and Astrid also gave us her own rendition of ‘Happy Birthday‘ played by blowing over the beer bottle tops! 🙂

Beer Tasting! August 31

Today we celebrated the last day of Winter with some Beer Tasting!

We tasted six different types of beers from various parts of Australia. There were beers from all the way over in Perth on the west coast to Sydney on the east, and one local favourite that is brewed right here in Byron Bay.

Everyone had different preferences, but the most popular beers from this tasting were the Stone & Wood Pacific Ale  and the Little Creatures Pale Ale.

We tried apple and pear ciders from all across Australia – from Victoria to Western Australia, Tasmania to South Australia, and even one brewed locally in Byron Bay.

They all had very different flavours and everyone had a different favourite. Above all, it was a lovely afternoon enjoying great conversation with cool drinks in the sunshine!

Wine Tasting! April 22

What better way to start the long weekend than to sample some wines on a sunny Friday afternoon!
