..."It was just awesome, awesome talent," she said. "To get second in that pool of people was outstanding."
Notes supplied by our waitress informed me, "Our brewers pick organic hops fresh from the fields at dawn and add them to the beer within hours. Same-day freshness brings the crisp, earthy hop flavour to life."
"Whenever the NZRU or my manager has tried to speak to me, I have just said my mind is focused on this, so I didn't even want to think about it. Now it is finished I will see what the plans are with the NZRU and just suss it out from there. I will have to see what they want."
