    According to all of you.

    Give three of what you think are the best imported beers in Australia. Just can not say Cantilon :slight_smile: has to be a specific beer.
    1. Sierra Nevada Bigfoot
    2. St. Bernardus ABT 12
    3 Odin's Tipple/ Nogne IS

    Not sure if i took ease of purchasing into account, but those seem to be easy enough to get.

    That's a pretty damn good answer really. Maybe Rochefort 8/10 deserves a spot. Same could be said for some Kiwi stuff but that is a good list.

    "Best" here means what I always buy: a combination of what I like and always feel like drinking; what I get something from I don't get from other things; and value.

    That's totally cool and get that. Hence why I split Nogne and Odin's Tipple. For the money and my palate just a great buy.

    Best is a relative term. Not looking for rankings, or close to that. Learn more about people's palate's in this way

    Yeah, that's what made it such a interesting question.
