    For you lucky down-under types ...
    Does Vita-Stout still exist? My fuzzy memory tells me it was a yellow label ... it also tells me that it was practically awful, but it was introduced to me with such religious intensity and fervor that I thought I was about to meet God, courtesy of a gentleman which I thought was certifiable after I witnessed him welding up the holes in the piping of a large diameter gasline, while it was in service. No lie. I took cover. He caused no explosion. I think I saw more of God during those 2 minutes than I did while drinking Vita-Stout, but if someone that lucky (or genius?) thinks Vita-Stout is the greatest thing ever, then I feel the least I can do is hope for it's survival ... or maybe even hope for another taste. Is it around, and is it ever exported?

    It looks like it is still brewed by DB in New Zealand.
