Brendon didn't have the camera with, but Andrew took a few photos for us.
"When we arrived we were given a red drink which when I tasted it, must have been some kind of beer. They had berries in the bottom of it and we drank it through a straw.
Before any beer was served at the meal, they had the traditional "opening of the first cask." I didn't try any other beer (I was on the hard take of Coke). I saw many litre jugs of beer being drank though. The waiter would hold 13 jugs of beer at once - with no tray. It was incredible to watch.
Interestingly the next morning I heard some of the men saying that the beer must be brewed differently as none of them had hangovers. And they drank enough the night before because some of them could not remember how they got back to their hotels.
Andrew took this photo at the entrance - the ox that was served for dinner. When I entered there was a lot more meat on it.
The photo does not do it justice. This rotisiry was huge. It was about a meter wide and two meters long."
