Wanna know the best thing about Fosters? We export that crap overseas. No upstanding Aussie will touch the stuff. It's been our own private little joke on the world for years.
So being from Melbourne, your beer of choice is likely to be Victoria Bitter or Carlton, right?
I spent some time with some mates (see what I did there) from Australia who work for my company and I got the lowdown on the regional beer preferences. They let me know about Fosters.
About 20 years ago, we could get Coopers Sparkling Ale here. That and Fosters and not much else from down under. But I loved Coopers Sparkling Ale. It was anything but sparkling, actually, and it had a head like whipped cream. Delicious. Haven't seen it in a long time.
