John Gray Beer-What beer is your current Favorite? (230* d) RE: Beer 13 Jan 02


Bruce from Bathurst.
I'm going down to the pub (Frankston / Vic )later today Bruce so I'll get a 6-pak of Coopers Special per your recommendation.
An interesting website to visit is the Long Distance Travellers. This is a group that tastes all the beers being imported into Australia and reviews them. Bugger of a job but someone has to do it.
They are on http://members.ozemail.com.au/~naibor/ldt/start.htm
Beside the normal meaning, the word "traveler" is slang in Oz for a can/bottle of beer that you take with you to drink between watering holes e.g. the pub to the party. The number of travelers taken is generally linked to the distance between waterholes. "How far away is the party mate?" "Bout an hour". "Ah, well 'bout 6 travelers each should keep us from dehydratin'"
With all the drink driving laws tightened up over the past 25 years the traveler has all but disappeared from urban areas but lives on in the vast outback regions.
Long Distance Travellers = beer imported from other countries.
