Free Beer On Bulli Pass

beer kegs roadFOR five hours after a beer truck had crashed while coming down Bulli Pass, last night, sightseers sat on the side of the roadway drinking free beer.

They came from as far afield as Fairy Meadow and Wollongong to join in the rush for ‘free slops’.

More than six kegs of beer were damaged in the accident.

The folk who live on the Pass were happier to night than they have been since V.P. night,’ said one resident, late last night. Kegs rolled to the bottom of the Pass, nearly 500 yards from the scene of the accident.
