With only 50 days to go before the Grand Final, the Club believes we should treat like any other block of 50 days. So we’ve managed to find a website that deals with beer - cheap beer.

Chris Canty (former Swans player and journalist) and his friend, Sten one of the men), have put together a website called - a website dedicated to finding cheap beer.

According to the “About us” section of the happiesthour:

Chris Canty has been a journalist for the last ten years.  While completing his first novel “single, ready to mingle, give me a jingle”, he decided to create an icy pole out of frozen beer for unemployed Arts students called “writers block”. While trying to find cheap beer for his icy pole business, he thought of this site instead. Those that know him best don’t want to. He is a tight arse.

Sten Gavronski is a 6′4 Estonian guy that has made Australia his home and beer his blanket. Those that know him best are out of pocket.

It’s a sophisticated website that also tackles a range of social issues. For example there was a story on choosing the best uni: 

Those that choose to go to uni, decide on which one to go to for a variety of reasons. Prestige, close to home, they got crap marks, etc.

But when it comes down to it, the most important part to play in deciding on where to go is their location to pubs.

How about hangovers? “Hangovers are natures way of keeping most of us in 9-5 jobs. If there weren’t repercussions from big nights out then every night would be one.”

Canty’s Booney Doll cracked it and walked out of his loungeHe also has some hard hitting observations that express some social outrage – such as the infamous “VB Uproar” when VB announced they were simultaneously lifting prices while reducing alcohol content. “My Talking Booney doll just said ‘F*ck this’ and walked out of my lounge.”

Unheard of.
