    I had some of that when I visited Aussieland a couple of years back.
    They tell me that it's not that popular with the locals.

    I know I was surprised. With all the advertisement done in the USA, you'd think that it was the most popular beer in Australia. The power of the ad :)

    Brooklyn is good stuff.

    I've been wanting to try Anchor. I'll probably pick up a 6 pack soon.

    Agreed, I've never been a fan.

    I think the Great Lakes brewery makes some pretty darn good beers.

    While vacationing on the Maine coast, I found this a fairly attractive option on several occasions.

    Bless me Father, for I have sinned...

    Tried a Linenkugel's Berry Weiss; reminded me of a Bartles & James cooler I had in college twenty+ years ago. Ick.

    I wasn't crazy about either one in a bottle, but I thought both were very good fresh on tap. Yum.
