We made a visit to the Pirate Republic Brewing Company for a pint with the rest of the buccaneers. A cheerful bunch well blessed with foreign coin, some of which was not willingly given by the original owners I would guess.
There was a very authentic pirate at the door suitably armed with a cutlass. Anyone asking for a glass of milk or lemonade was promptly flogged and tossed overboard.
There were others, some seasonal and some regular. All to be recommended. The scurvy crew of Kapowai surrendered some pieces of 8 in that place but the exchange was well worth it.
