Exotic Booze Club is what it sounds like: a bit wild, a bit out there, a lot exotic - and the amazing thing is all of it is true! Stories that would make Hunter S. Thomson proud . . . . I loved it.' - Peter FitzSimons

At seven years old, the young Brian Armstrong was captivated by the pages of an old, yellow-bordered magazine . It wasn't just the bare-breasted tribeswomen that attracted his attention. Pictures of far-off jungles, exotic wildlife and intrepid explorers prompted the boy to declare 'That's what I'm going to do when I grow up.' Twenty- five years later, that dream came true. The boy from Bendigo found himself travelling from one death-defying adventure to another as a seat-of-the-pants expedition filmmaker for the same company that produced those yellow-bordered magazines. Coping with deadly snakes, volcanoes, acid lakes, malaria, armed rebels and even a helicopter crash became part of a day's work. Time and again Brian asked himself the same three questions: 'How did I get here?' 'How do I get out of here?' And, most importantly, 'What's to drink?' Against his employer's strict anti-alcohol policy, this irreverent larrikin started the Exotic Booze Club. Brian exhorted fellow filmmakers and explorers to return to the office to share strange liquors and wild tales of daring exploits. This book gives you the true stories from behind the scenes of Brian's most dramatic films, framed by the rise and fall of the one and only Exotic Booze Club.
