I always did think that Australia was one of Portugal's more interesting discoveries.

Hi All,

Just arrived in DXB after a 13hr flight from MEL. While I was sitting there waiting for the flight to finally end, I went through this thread again in my mind (yeah, I know, pathetic huh?) anyway, I agree with the statement that somehow we Aussies have managed to have a 13 page thread and despite that, not confuse the original poster :-)

Suggestion to the Mods, why make this thread a sticky? Lots of good info and personal experiences given. When anyone else comes to Aus, they contribute to the thread in case things change over time. Of course we need to clear up all the useless references to any mainland beer, (why you would drink anything from Sydney or Melbourne is beyond me and just leave the name of the good stuff, you know, Cascade & James Boags).
Whaddya reckon fellow Aussies...?

Cheers,

Bloke

Getting a bit above your station aren't you?

We cut Tassie off and set adrift for a reason you know...
Still, nothing wrong with a bit of ambition, I guess...

Yeah...

Post #9 "I don't take kindly to to jack-booted officialdom anywhere"

Should be enough to support Godwins theory...

Thats because we found out the OP was canadian. So had to tell the truth.

However you raise a good point. Discussing Beer. Alcohol has been the partner of good sea farers for thousands of years. And needs to be dsicussed and debated just as cats vs monos need debating. Sadly, not many aus brands are actually aus any more. Tooheys brands are all owned by Lion Nathan. Fosters Brands including Vb Carlton and the Cascade car wash are now owned by SABMiller. Blue Toungue is part owned by Coke . Boags is Tasmanian as The London Beafeaters. It too is owned by Lion Nathan.

Coopers is still aussie owned. Trying to think of any big brands aside from them that still are.

So when our colonial friends sail into port and after they have gone through customs, we best make sure we give them a Coopers.

Re: Australian Customs - Deterrent to Visiting Oz ?

Isn't the Fosters in the USA "imported" from Canada? So threatening Canadians with Fosters would in truth just be giving them a dose of their own medicine?

How about Fat Yak? Very good IPA it is! And Aussie owned and operated as I recall...

Too true.. the only time it gets seen these days is in old 70's movies with bad music.
