Back up and blogging here after a busy week at Salt. Laurie had the little ones on a little vacation and I was left behind to muck through myself...but things are back to normal now and here's some of what is going on!

To answer your question chefra...sure bring the whole damn band!

That was a question geared toward "Talent Night"...which in reality is an "Open Mic" night for anyone who feels like having a stage and a mic for a bit to share their talents!! We started this 2 weeks ago and it was a blast for those of you who were here. It starts at AROUND 9-ish every other Tues night (aug 26, sept 9), depending upon dinner service, and can go until it's done! We welcome any talents, for example, last week we had a "Batman" skit, we also had Gary "A story-teller" telling of his life's experiences. The night is em-ceed by our own "Big Man Jim" who brings his own very "raw" sense of humor to the mic and makes the night flow nicely. There will be a time limit on acts so everyone who would like to go gets a chance.

Hope to see you all there!!

Australia's Barons Brewing Co. "Black Wattle Original Ale"

5.8% ABV

Barons Black Wattle Original Ale was the first in this new class of beer - flavoured by native Australian roasted wattle seed. This multi award-winning ale has a rich amber colour and a base malt flavour of toffee and caramel. The roasted wattle seed rounds out the offering with a unique taste that hints of hazelnut, chocolate and mocha. It is a full bodied, full flavoured beer that is surprisingly smooth with an amazingly silky finish.

“With a long summer of BBQs approaching, this’ll be my BBQ beer. Brilliant with a butterflied leg of lamb or even something a little more gamey like roo.” says Head Brewer and Brewing Baron, Richard Adamson.

In crafting the Barons Native Range, Scott and Rich have delivered a new style of natural and preservative free beers where the flavour is driven by native Australian spices rather than hops. It feels as Australian in the mouth as “pass the snag, mate!”
