Re: Australia Day Beer Special

Thailand - Beer "Chang".
Chang meaning elephant.
Nice flavor; nice mellowing effect.
Cost: pocket change. Well, t'was when I last lived there back at the turn of the century. {This century.}

Warning: Stop imbibing when the mellow stage arrives or in the morn' it'll seem as if a herd of elephants stomped upon your head.

Re: Australia Day Beer Special

I wish you guys would stop all this beer talk. It's just gone 8am here and my thoughts should be on more productive things than drinking beer. But, after the day is done, then

Coops.

Re: Australia Day Beer Special

In China we used to drink "Five Goats". It is said that the picture on the label is the factory.

Yellow Tail wines are about $6 here.

Where is "here". Might be the iPad app but I can't see your location?

But wherever it is the same wine is probably double that in Aus.

Re: Australia Day Beer Special

Got a carton of Carlsberg in the fridge, that's as near as I get at the moment, but you guys do make top beers.

No, that guy is way too small for defence.
