The Adventures of Colin – Leeds International Beer Festival

It’s the second time we’ve been invited to serve the awesomely fresh (az, bro!) beers from the New Zealand beer collective but there’s been an aspect of Jolly Good Beer that’s not really been documented. Until now.

Colin the colossal (shhh) squid has been freeloading at Jolly Good Beer headquarters since before it existed due to instinctively latching on a pair of beery schmucks back at the Te Papa Mueseum. In typical fashion,¬†his natural habitat is NOT¬†aiding with service at the Kiwi bar…

Thanks to the festival organizers, breweries and volunteers that made the Leeds International Beer Festival an awesome – if not exhausting – few days!
