  1. Did all the kegs go on the weekend? I couldn't make it, but am keen to get a hop fix this afternnon in Darlo

  2. Hey Regular, the terrible weather and rain unfortunately put a bit of a dampener on the SpecTAPular in Sydney so I don't think anything actually ran out (Colonial IPA and Begal IPA were both scratched however). To be 100% certain, you could call the venue - 02 9360 0088.

  3. Thanks Steve, will do
