    So I'm in the middle of the outback, and I'm craving a good beer. Can anyone recommend some good Australian beers? All I've had is Crowns and Victoria's Bitters.

    If you are in the middle of the outback you might not have access to any good beer.

    Depends on where you are really. Best options in the Outback will be Coopers and possibly some Squire.
    Have no shot in hell of seeing Mountain Goat, Feral or others if remote. Unless you want to mail order.
    I am currently working remote in the Kimberley and the only option I have is Matso's where I work. Mango is workable and the rest are awful.

    Mango is like the worst one Pat!

    You are a bad man!

    Better than Fiji bitter!!! Mango goes well when 35 and 80 percent humidity.

    Toohey's New was the ONLY thing available around Uluru. And priced like craft. Ugh.

    Yeah. They would have been paying stupid freight to get it out there.
