Eight in a row…


The title says it all…

While enjoying a few ales this afternoon with the boys, Lindsay thought a sign with 8 X’s would be cool… actually he ordered 3… one for him and 2 for friends…

For those who live overseas or not into football… the reference is to the State of Origin Rugby League games… Queensland eight in a row… New South Wales… none in a row…

XXXX is the state beer of Queenland … if a state can have a state beer…

There is a derogatory story about why it is called XXXX… something to do with Queenslanders not being able to spell BEER… very funny guys…

So here is one… not finished but you get the idea….IMG_3059The timber is maple and will be finished with a spray poly… the laser engraving took over 20 minutes but I did have it set at a slower speed to make sure the engraving was deep enough…

These will be available at Rocklea Markets, Saturday and Eagle Farm Markets on Sunday..

Or you can contact me direct… price is $35.00 at the markets but mention this post and get one for only $30.00… this deal is also available for mail order with postage being $10.00 any where in Australia…

    The x’s remind me of the history of moonshine; the number of x’s meant the number of times the booze went through the still. Eight times would be powerful enough too melt paint. I too enjoy my beer, in fact four friends started a brewery about three miles from my house. They make the best beer. It sometimes takes a couple of hours wait to get your growler filled. Last week I meet a guy (Simon) at the brewery who is from Australia who was visiting the area and heard about this great beer.
