A hard earned thirst needs a better cold beer

A hard earned thirst needs a better cold beer

  • Comments 3

Anyone who has spent any amount of time in Australia is no doubt familiar with VB. VB is the lowest common denominator of Aussie beers. You can get it everywhere; it tastes OK but it's nothing special. Yet thousands of people are not aware that there are better options available. Never fear, the patterns & practices team is here to help! If you are one of those people constantly consuming six-packs of VB and don't know how to move on, check out the community drop of our new VB6 Migration Guide. If that won't help you migrate to something better, I don't know what will!

Note: I haven't actually read this guide yet, but I'm pretty sure that this is what it's about. Either way, it's sure to be a great read!

  • Tom Hollander gets my full attention by talking about Beer. Funny how that works.
    But he equates Victoria...
  • NOTHING SPECIAL?!! Its the staple diet here in Australia - especially after you've been out doing physical work or sports or something...it doesnt get good till youve done some work...and its part of the culture!
    And for anyone reading and wondering where Foster's fits into this equation - we dont drink that here...we export it!
  • Nice one!

    This is a decent beer but you're right .. many Aussies don't realise there is much better stuff out there.

    People drink VB and XXXX the same way Coors, Bud and Miller are drunk in America... its a shame really.
