I spent my formative drinking years with a father that only drank Victoria Bitter, a mass produced syrup beer made by CUB (Carlton United Breweries) and a Grandfather that worked at CUB in Melbourne Australia so you can imagine what was on offer at his house. When I started drinking it was obvious what I'd start on. After many years of drinking the same pig swill and bottom shelf bourbon I tried out heroin instead! Nah, just kidding. Anyway, I stopped drinking for a few years as I found it all bland and boring. Then I visited a friend with a taste for craft brews and haven't been able to stop since. Why do you love beer?
