Flavoured water is fine once in a while. I've heard that the microbrewers there are going from strength to strength.
You must admit, for the average Aussie, VB is better than Castlemaine XXXX and Fosters.
i prefer coopers pale ale myself but dont mind the odd vb/carlton draught for a changeup.
xxxx is pants....and not sure if you're familiar with crown lager, but fosters is just that rebranded for overseas.
$1.60 is really cheap. Over here you can pay anywhere from $2.50 to $5 or more for a pint and up from there for imports at a swanky place. I once paid $8 for a pint!
It’s all the damn taxes that drive up the cost.
is this in the us?
in australia we would pay $8 for a pint of local stuff and rising to $11-12 for the boutique asian/european beers.
but we also have the glorious idea of jugs, just over a litre at around $13.
