I'm off to OZ for the first time next week and I was wondering about beer brands. We are going to Sydney then Queensland. Over here I drink real ale or Belgian beer, and Stella as a lager choice.

Anyone got any recommendations?

I'm off to Oz in 10 weeks, and don't really drink lager. I'm more of a bitter gal myself. Will I be laughed out of town if I ask for this, or can I get by on my favourite tipple without to much 'agro'?

Go for 'old' ales as they call them (Toohey's Old for ex) . They tend to be darker in colour however they are served very cold, too cold in my opinion, but depending on what time of year you go and where you go, you just might appreciate a cold one!

yes, unlike the rumour my usual order is a vodka lemon and lime or one of the many mixers in a can or bottle, and

I'm looking back over fifty years ago in Brisbane and loved

Bulimba Pilsner Beer,with Castlemaine Perkins as a fall back.

It was wartime and beer was scarce,but occasionally a bottle

of Richmond Tiger was available.Tooths or Tooheys in NSW.

We used to sing - she'll be drinking Tooheys Larger when she

comes (around the mountain,of course).Cascade had the best name

of all.Lots more but that's enough for now.
