    Has anyone here every had VB before? Just wondering. They import that Fosters crap from Australia, and call it Australian for beer. Foster's is Australia's piss beer. VB is the best beer I have ever had, and they don't import it. That pisses me off. Anyone heard of it or know where to find VB? Thanks

    I've definatly had my share (and then some) of VB. Its the "party beer" I drink whenever I go to Australia (was there in October, fishing) Pretty good for a mass produced grog, its the Bud or Coors of New South Wales and Victoria obviously. Pretty scarce on this side of the world but not impossible to find. You know why Foster's is known around the world? Because NOBODY in Australia will drink it!!![​IMG] It's SHIGHT!!

    Foster's isn't imported from Australia. It's imported from Canada. Check the can sometime.

    I have had VBB actually. A girl I know down under sent me one. It was pretty good to have traveled half way around the world!!

    I have had VB both times I went to Australia. I went to Pirth and Catherine on the west coast. Last summer the Aussies came here to train with us and they all had their VB attire. I tried trading for one of there hats but they wouldn't part with them.

    Foster is Australian for piss beer. I asked a bartender over there who drank Fosters is Australia, and he told me, a few Ausies and Orientals. Thats it. VB is Australias best selling beer and I can see why. Its really good. I havn't found an American beer yet that is as good as VB. I need to find some here.

    It was kinda funny when I was over there, and looked at a beer list and saw Budweiser under the Import section.
