My dream job of driving trucks in Australia turned into a nightmare when I broke down in the outback hundreds of miles from civilisation.

After three days the water ran out and started drinking my own urine. After another three days I could no longer recycle my piss and realised I was out of options and had to accept the inevitable.

So I opened some of the Fosters I was delivering.
A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Never had a Fosters, but I assume it relates to an Australian like a Heineken relates to a Belgian.

I doubt you would find a "truck load" of Fosters in Australia - if so, then it wouldn't matter if it broke down in the desert.
I Imagine it's more popular as an export than in domestic sales. Very rarely see a bottle/tinnie anywhere and never seen it on tap - thankfully :lol:
Nice joke though stokie :cheers: Gave me a laugh

You're right Dan Fosters is brewed here in the UK and marketed as Austrailian. I'm afraid it doesn't say much for us Brits if we drink this rubbish :lol:

Interesting that this article hails VB and XXXX as the highest selling in Oz - also says a lot about Aussie taste buds :roll:
I just hope all the people buying them aren't actually drinking them - might be suitable for cows/sheep during these dry times?

When you drink brazilian commercial beer(Brahma, Skol, Itaipava and etc) then we can talk.

Heineken becomes a top beer when you compare with those haha
