Leaving Canada

Postby Garthicus » Sat Aug 25, 2012 8:20 pm

Hey all,

It's with a heavy heart that I let you all know that as of this Saturday I am leaving Toronto to go back to Ireland for a couple of months before leaving again to move to Australia where I am taking a job in Brisbane..

The good news? I get to sample all the awesome things that are happening in the Irish beer scene and then discover what's going on in Oz..

The bad news? I leave behind the best friends I've ever made in my adult life... It's gonna be an awfully emotional week! (I'm a super cry baby!)

Paid for our one way tickets to Ireland yesterday. I feel so weird.

Anyhow, to those of you who I've had the pleasure of meeting - it's been great! For those of you who I haven't gotten around to meeting yet - let's have a beer sometime, somewhere!

Cheers,

Al

Best of luck Al, all the best in the future. Come back to the forum from time to time and let us know the beers you're drinking during your new life adventures!

I think he meant this:

The other one is a mirror (older database) as I was trying to upgrade the forum software. Clearly I didn't finish :-)

Huh - apparently I miss some interesting stuff by never reading the "What're you drinking right now?" thread...

I hope your part of Ireland has a better beer scene than my part (Belfast).

If you click on the link below and go to the post at 30/07/12 you'll see you're arriving just in time for the Dublin Craft Beerfest.

Thanks all!

Arrived safe and sound, now gearing up for the festival this weekend!

MAN the beer scene here has changed!
