I’m Excited!! Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular V’s the Yaraville Festival

I am pumped as today I have the option of 2 festivals of awesome. OK well not quite. I live in Yarraville and today is Yarraville festival day, otherwise known as festivus. I know this because they put a flier in my mail. I went to it last year with Sal. She made me watch the dog fashion parade and look at craft with her (I think Marku still owes me a beer for that).

We did have beers and meet giant transvestites but still I’m not sure that it will be my festival of choice as I have another option that I am genuinely excited about. I don’t mean excited as in “oh you got a new iPhone. That’s exciting”. I mean Big Kev “I’m Excited!” excited (RIP Big Kev, we miss your awesome shirts and cleaning products). I’m Excited !! about Spectapular!! (yes all those exclamation marks mean I’m shouting!!!)

As its clear which choice I’ll be making (sory festivus, I may walk through and grab some lunch though) here is the list of beers that I’ll be choosing from, and yes they do sound wierd and wonderful. No idea what I’ll start with (note one or two have dropped out due to injury or drain pours)
