Tell me about it... i'm part of a brewers club and a few of the guys are from australia and they talk about the horrible prices there. Sierra Nevada six pack for 25 dollars. that's one of the reason they started brewing... i guess brewing's pretty big there.
Yeah, quite a few of my friends where I grew up make home brew, every year I say I'm going to do it, but I procrastinate way too much and it's just easier to walk 1 minute down the road to the bottle shop
And we haven't even touched on buying a beer at a pub/club. Here in Perth, it's usually $10 for a pint of beer
