I really like the fact that in Australia people really get behind their local beers and are parochial about them. There is such a variety out there. unlike what I've noticed in the U.S. where no one hardly touches local stuff or knows of it and everyone just drinks "national" beers such as Bud, Coors, Miller, Busch. I suppose Foster's was our flagship "national" beer in the 80s and we've gracefully exiled it from our fridges since. I suppose VB is one beer that is pretty much the pseudo-national beer as its availability anywhere in Australia is high, but its shit...ha ha.
Well the votes are in and it's official Emu Export is the best. It's what the Perth Wildcats used to drink back in the heyday of NBL. Maybe if they got back on the export bandwagon they would be the powerhouse of the competition once again.
