Really taking the piss

The Tui brewery in Mangatainoka looks just like the one on the shirt. It's funny how signs of Tui are all over the show, despite the fact that DB Breweries pretty much destroyed the town's jobs and whatnot by moving the brewing of Tui beer to the facility in Auckland. I guess they still pay the marketing dollars though.

Tui: Brewed in Mangatainoka since 1899 (until we moved it to Auckland).

Actually the Ravensdown Mangatanoka store must employ a few people; well, a couple at least -- and I don't remember taking a call for it, actually. "Gidday, it's Bill from the Mangatainoka store here". It just doesn't ring a bell.
