Fourex and Victoria Bitter in NY/NJ metro?

Recommended Posts

I studied in Australia for a semester in '02, and I miss the taste of Fourex and Victoria Bitter, which I was told were Queensland's beers of choice. Does anyone know a place where I can get them?

I would try BierKraft in Brooklyn, to start.

I don't think either one is "officially" exported from Australia to the US currently.

VB is a product of Foster's and, for a time, was available in the US (as an "oil can" and in bottles IIRC) but I can't remember whether it was contract-brewed in Canada (like Fosters) or came from Aust. Can't say I've seen it recently but, then, I don't look for those sorts of beers.

Castlemaine XXXX was, for a time, (late 80's - mid-90's ?) contract-brewed for the US market by Coors (it was mostly found at Outback Steakhouse) but I think that contract ended as well.

Not a lot of beer imported from Australia to the US- the only ones I bother with are Cooper's. Many of their "industrial light lagers" (even those mis-named "bitter") seem to come and go in this market, other than Foster's (which, ironically, is much bigger in the US and Europe than in it's home country).

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
