No Australian drinks Fosters.

Quite a few do actually. Its called crown lager in Australia. The fosters sent overseas is Crown Lager. Not sure what that cat pi$$ is that they brand as fosters here is though.

It was a post filled with stereotypes...see, it was a yank, not a serious post. Man, when you have to start explaining the comedy...

It's funny because its true, I laugh everytime I see someone drinking crown and then deriding fosters as the urine of aforementioned feline.

Urban myth actually. They add another type of hops to Crown Lager. Not that it matters because they're both shocking beers.

It seems to me that you are often having to explain your comedy/irony. I'll draw no conclusions...............:D

I am either too much like Dennis Miller, or I suck, you be the judge...:D

He was probably on a new rice and emu diet.

:D The emu component gives him a bigger jump on the climbs.

But I'm hearing Spartacus is on rice cakes, and Conti too. But it's a secret and no one can see the evidence, LOL.

I sure hope nobody else thinks he was clean...lol, he probably took a couple of 500cc refills of packed red cells for that one.

Dream on. Craig1985 was right. Forsters Group owns Crown Lager...the kiln however has a different concoction in both cases.

Sorry to ruin the urban myth. Covered this one years back in a marketing lecture. Ownerships by the Forsters Group is as far as it goes. Taste the two, they are not the same. Crown Lager is popular here in a niche way. Forsters doesn't get sold.

"Not sold" as in not available in Australia or "not sold" as in no one admits that they drink it?
