The iconic Caxton Hotel in Brisbane’s notorious contact-sport district has had to order an emergency truckload of Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2015, following the unprecedented Wallabies win over the All Blacks at Suncorp Stadium tonight.
Australia has sent retiring hooker Stephen Moore out a winner after scoring three tries to two in a 23-18 victory over the All Blacks at Suncorp Stadium, just 100 metres down the road from the famous Brisbane venue.
Current bar manager, Stefan Russo (19) says they didn’t think the Wallabies were going to win so convincingly, and have had to discard the temporary front bar taps of Waikato Draught and immediately order in several pallets of the medium-to-expensive brand of Australian red wine.
“We are usually used to hosting big crowds after an Origin or Broncos win, but that only means our Betoota Bitter and Jack Daniels pre-mix taps get flogged”
“We were in now way prepared for this many boat shoes in our venue at 11pm at night
One of the classic South Australian Red, Penfolds Bin 389 is often referred as ‘Baby Grange’. The Bin 389 is a magnificent blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from the very best regions and vineyards available, and makes for a fine post-rugby union beverage.
The new and improved Wallabies stunned fans and rivals alike with a 23-18 win in the third and final Bledisloe Cup Test at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium just moments ago.
The win snapped a seven-game losing streak against the world champions although the All Blacks retain the Bledisloe Cup with a 2-1 series win, and has resulted in droves of red-nosed white collar professionals hitting the strip ready for a few.
“We are back, Gentleman” said one Queen’s Counsel representative.
“Look out World Cup”
The bartender staff at the Cacko say they’re confident they can hold this crowd until 1 am when they make their move towards Johnny Ringos for a dip on the mechanical bull and some rum.
