James Squires One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale.

I am currently working in Narrabri NSW on a 3 month contract with the local council and this is about the pick of the beers available in town here. Lots of 4X and Great Northern drunk here.

Might have to start drinking more red wine.

I heard one of the lads from Bridge Road Brewers last year say that XXXX Gold is the biggest selling beer in Australia.

Most likely because it doesnt taste of anything but still gets you drunk.

I was in Townsville for a wedding a few years back. All of the locals drank heavily every day. Interestingly, each of them started proceedings daily with a few "Goldies" before moving on to the full strength. Their idea moderation, I guess.

Wasn't that long ago that XXXX would have been the only beer in town.
