No XXX for Christmas in Australia

I’ve just found a story on the News.com.au site that some Aussies in “Tassy” had to do without their XXX at Christmas last year. That must have brought a small tear to their eye.

Unfortunately a local brewer ran out of surplies for two of it’s most popular lines right before Christmas, so many retailers couldn’t restock.

Several Launceston retailers were left without Boag’s Draught Light cans and Boag’s XXX Ale stubbies and cans for several days after the brewery’s own supplies ran out.

J. Boag & Son marketing director Lyndon Adams said the brewery was also forced to reduce the amount of Boag’s Draught it sent to its growing interstate market to ensure its local supply.

Mr Adams said the brewery knew it was facing shortages just before Christmas as orders threatened to soak up the stock it had on hand.

“We knew it was going to be tight, and then on the day before Christmas we had no XXX Ale left,” he said.

I feel for you guys.

  1. ?? I thought it was 4X (XXXX) – well, you learn something new everyday – including the fact that whiskey-fueled surfing turns you into a bender. 😛
