Today’s pie and beer race up the side of a hill on a steep track was organised by Karl Woodhead, another P-Team Grandmaster. This is what Karl has to say:
While there are traditions around the world for beer miles, there is probably nothing that compares to the P-Team event. In New Zealand details of top beer mile performances can be found here here. See footage from the 2017 event
On a technical issue, the beer was Tui and the pies of a standard design commonly found in any petrol station or supermarket. Craft beer, Trisha's Pies or anything fancy from Moore Wilson's was not used to put on this event.
Stu confirms the beer was unchilled and the pies barely warm.
There is a rumour that some cans of beer were still half full when they were dumped in the rubbish bag?
