Cardiff is going to be electric this weekend as the Autumn Internationals kicks off with a humdinger against the Aussies. We're going to win (of course) and much celebrating will be had. The key question here is where should we be watching and celebrating our resounding thrashing of 'them down-under'. Here's our top suggestions:

If it's a straight battle between beers - Cardiff has already trounced the Aussies. Fosters? VB? Pah, they should try the cracking range of brews Crafty Devil have on and tell us who's the winner. If the beer alone isn't enough to tempt you in, how about the 100 inch screen Crafty Devil have? Knocking back fine Cardiff-brewed beer whilst watching a life-size pummelling of the Aussie back line - Heaven.

You're going to want to celebrate, BIG. We recommend you drink something that's going to match the visual treat you've just seen - how about some incredible cocktails from the flavour-masters at Lab 22? Reminiscing about Dan Biggar's complete control over the Aussies for 80 minutes whilst knocking back a Foul Mouthed Padre cocktail is exactly the way you want to be spending your Saturday evening. Book ahead to get a table reserved or even better, watch the game there - they're showing all the games for the whole series. Get on.

You may be thinking "Watch a Rugby game at a burger bar?" but let that sink in for a second and you'll no doubt be nodding and saying "Watch a Rugby game at a burger bar!". Think about it, Great beer offer (4 Tsing Tao for £10) - check, Rugby - check, Atmosphere - check, Some of the best burgers in Wales - check! Gather your mates and set up for a feeding frenzy whilst watching the boys create art on the pitch. Beautiful, violent art.

Pipes Brewery, makers of some of Cardiff's finest craft beer inspired from recipes across the globe, are opening up their brewery (in their beautiful Pontcanna quarters) for the big game. They've got Australian heritage (Mr Pipes is an escaped-Aussie), so this is the perfect spot to watch the game with a unique and crafty concoction in your hand and within shouting distance of a bemused Antipodean. Their creations range from classic IPAs and Bohemian Pilsners, to the more experimental Baltic Porter Espressos and Chocolate Wheat Beers, all of which adhere to their premium quality standards. With ambitions to release 2 new specialty beers each month, Pipes are a brewery worth keeping tabs on.
