    As title suggest, if you can nominate to remove:
    10 local craft brews

    and replace these with

    5 local craft brew and
    5 foreign craft brews

    at Dan Murphys, what would they be?

    So do you want us to include only breweries that are distributed here, or any from overseas?

    Distributed here or overseas. If it's from overseas there must be some realistic basis that they can be distributed here. Thus, don't nominate Pliny guys. I think those I listed as foreign brews enjoy mass distribution enough in US to realistically get distribution to Dannos/Australia.

    does bigfoot really need to be available any cheaper than it already is? I mean c'mon now

    My point is not really on cheap price but retail availability via Dannos.

    It'd be nice if barleywine can be made readily available to the public just as Torpedo, Punk IPA and now Big Eye is making American IPA style pretty common to the public.

    Let the people realise that there's such a style as barleywine. Also, because $40 Murray's Anniversary Ale :p

    In terms of removals

    All English ales with 'funny' names - having difficulty typing this as I am laughing so much as I remember the 'Fart' style jokes.
    Monteiths
    Stoke
    Wingwalker
    certain small Craft brewers in Aus that struggle to get a 3 rating across their range let alone a solid 3.5 or 4


    Adders

    Extra Brewdogs
    More Murrays - say P&J to start with
    Bridge Roads
    More Fullers
    Sam Smiths

    Definitely the English "funny" name ales. Won't go near them. I suppose it'll be nice if they carried Hop Hog, Samuel Smith's RIS and Guinness' Special Export. Hop Hog for the convenience when I'm outside of Melbourne (Purvis/Slowbeer is where I buy it) and the others as (particuarly Special Export) they can be hard to get my hands on.
