Drinks place: The PhoenixTuesday, September 01, 2015
It's Friday night and I've just been sitting another four hours on my bum after work, getting myself transported from Auckland down to Tauranga. I need a stretch. My butt needs a stretch. First stop, the Phoenix. I plan to do a taster of all the available Monteith's beers on menu here, one day. Just a pint for tonight will do, its a been a long drive. No sliders here, but a blue cheese pizza with pear slices and caramelised onion. It's quite an unusual menu offering, since I find that there aren't many Kiwis enjoy strong smelly blue cheese. Maybe the Tauranga crowd are a different lot. I love the blue cheese and sweetness combo, my favourite being Italian gorgonzola and runny honey. The local kayaking club hangs here on a regular basis, I hear. So will I, I think.
