Page 1 of Australians nearly teatotal?
Nah, but we are getting there, maybe by the year 2070, going by the downward trend.
Latest figures on the BBC news last night, is that there is a bit of a downward trend of the amber nectar, wine and other drinks.
Australians like to drink to compensate for heat loss and are very social being in a mainly outgoing outdoor society and having a good old swig of refreshing beer or lager, but a recent survey shows that we are drink less achohol now than the last 50 years.
This is a good sign as drink is still one of the biggest killers in Australia. This was on the BBC news last night and in the papers today,,,
On a personal note, one of the biggest secrets Australians had was exporting for decades absolute bland Fosters lager and Four XXXX kangaroo pass to unsuspecting foreign markets like the UK. Since then a lot of micro breweries have set up and sell real tasty refreshing beer around the Oz coast. Looking forward to sampling them all soon.
As for myself there is still nothing to beat real English ales and beers using hops and barley to create fantastic smells and taste. You have the real stuff here
