All Beer Is Good, Some Is Better

The weather the past couple of days has been great (Sunny, mid-80s).  I decided to go for a walk and get something to eat.  A co-worker recommended a place called 'The Tap Room'.  I was just going to have one pint with lunch, but their beer was so good I had three! :)  This pub features the  brews of Monteith's Brewing Co. and they were very great.  I tried the Celtic Red, Black Beer, and the Reddler.  The Celtic and Black were excellent! The Reddler was good, but a little too sweet for my taste.  The food was good and the menu had a lot of great quotes by famous people about beer and drinkinng.  The title of this post comes from Monteith's slogan.  I wanted to buy a t-shirt with it on it, but no luck.  Thanks for the recommendation, Mark!

Yesterday, Dave F (a co-worker) and I went to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens near downtown.  The weather was beautiful and I ended up getting a decent sunburn.  The gardens were free and definitely worth it.  They had all kinds of different plants but our favorite were the trees.  I took a bunch of pictures to get better at using my new camera (Nikon D40x).  I will have to upload them later as the hotel's Internet charges over $1 for each MB for 10 and it could get pricey.  When I get to the station I will upload them.
