Pretty sure it’s still called a Tooheys Old Les.

 

Mate, you would know better than me, not had a beer since 2010. 'The Black' has had a few name changes in the last 50 years.:*

 

The Coal Miners up in the Hunter loved it, probably still do.

Never had so much fun on CC as on the Meat Pie Thread. Long may it reign. :halo:

 

England 1 wicket down for 38 Runs. No doubt a couple of decent Aussie meat pies for luncheon will do them good.

Been longer for me.

 

But order plent of “Middy of Old thanks” dad’s drink of choice.

 

Really doesn’t sell, and can be hard to buy, anywhere else on tap.

 

I know back when I’d help dad on the truck there be like 50 kegs of old and maybe 5 or 10 of New.

 

Back in the day, tooth’s had an Old too, poor old Tooths barely exist anymore.

Now its raining at the Gabba, so some hot Goldsteins or Yatala pies for lunch for the boys, washed down with a can of XXXX Gold, a good healthy Brisvegas lunch. Perhaps some Mango for dessert.:halo:

I’d be happy with either mango or pineapple.

No but you might put it in the ice

 

 

 

Talking of old ice in Eskies - this is where my son recently found his smart phone which had gone missing for a couple of hours!

He’s put it into a bowl full of rice hoping it will recuperate but I don’t hold much chance for it’s survival - just 2 months old - of course!

Must be near on 15 years ago.

 

Vodafone gave me three new phones in the space of six months (no idea why) and I passed the old ones down to the kids.

 

Left home and said the som, just finished his HSC, “ When I get home I’d like the lawn to be mown”. He did it. But a hot day, so asked Mrs Gut could he jump in the pool clothes and all.

 

“oh hell..... my phone”

 

His did come good, after a trip to the rice bin, but didn’t last long.

Used to be the BEST in NSW at Frederickton just north of Kempsey but the new Highway by-passes it now! New owners have messed up the pastry!

Then there is the place up near Brunswick Heads (can't remember the name of the place ATM) but it too has been by-passed.

If you stick to the Pacific Highway going through Coffs then all the Pubs do great Pub Grub though we locals go down to the Jetty or Park Beach areas for best meals.

Let me know if you'd like to have a stop-over here - even just for a meal if not for a night - happy to meet up & show you around!

Regards - Gae

What, the smart phone didn't tell the not so smart son that eskys are damp.

 

The key is to make sure the phone is off. If the battery can be removed, do so and open up any hatches, ports etc.

 

Put the phone and any bits and pieces in a zip lock bag, top up with rice and seal the bag. The key is to leave it for at least 48 hrs no matter how tempting it is to pull it out and don't even try switching it on.

 

If you are lucky, it will work after this. Even if it does, I would look for the first opportunity to replace it. Good luck

Spot on - same principle with adding rice to the salt shaker in areas of high humidity so it doesn't clump.

Carlton took over Tooth and Co and make an Old Brown, not as dark or sweet as Old Black.

 

Not very common though, I think they mainly sell it in bottles.
