Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) special…really??

March 25, 2020

Yep you read that right!

Now before you go searching for the thumbs down emoji we want to have the opportunity to explain ourselves!

A while ago it was suggested that we go back to our grass roots and see what the definition of "Beer" was back then and in fact still is by an overwhelming majority of the Australian population.

After the 300 odd unique beers we have tasted on this podcast, it was interesting to reminisce the days when many Victorian venues did not have more than two beers on tap, Carton Draught and Victoria Bitter.

Where did our beer journey start and which beer was our staple? Have a listen to find out...

This episode we tasted:

  • Victoria Bitter (VB)
  • Melbourne Bitter
  • Carlton Draught
  • Crown Lager
  • Fosters Lager
  • Carlton Dry
  • Carlton Zero
