What's in a name?

Yet no one even commented on Two Dogs even though the owners claimed it was from the punch line of the old joke.
I trust you will be buying some!

They weren’t just claiming that, the motto of the company which was printed below the “Two Dogs” logo, was ; “Why do you ask?”

I have only seen it advertised, never bought it or tried it.

Had it (Two Dogs) at a vet mate’s place when it first came out. Wasn’t it a cider or something? Too long ago to remember now.

Had an idea it was a beer then an alcoholic lemonade or maybe both, just remember the name.
There is a US beer from Kentucky called Horse Piss, have been trying to find it but suspect it doesn’t make it this far.

You may be right - It could have been an alcoholic lemonade.
As for the Horse Piss, it would probably taste better than the mainstream American beers. (Lots of good smaller breweries there now, though.)

Yup, same in Canada.

Yes, the paradox of American beer. They have both the worst beers and the best beers in the world.

Their craft beer scene is by far the best in the world. 6-7000 craft breweries and pub brews. Less than 600 here in Australia. Some of those thousands are really very very good.

An alcoholic lemonade, was turning over $150m per year when sold to a French mob who sold it to Kirin in Japan and then who knows?

Read a report in the past week where it was stated that over half of those 600 Aussie craft breweries were owned by the big 2 brewery companies.

And a lot of ‘imported’ beers are made here too by two of the big ones.
A lot of the small brewers got a bit bigger and better then got bought out, we have a couple near us that only sell locally and I suspect that is because production prevents them from sending it further away.
There is another one called Grand Ridge which produces CUB clones, I fail to see how they stay in business charging $30+ for a six pack of what tastes like VB etc.

Hmmm Australia fewer than 25m people. USA 327m people

25m/600breweries= 1 per 40k. people.

327m/7000breweries= 1 per 47k people.

AUSTRALIA - Still punching above its weight division! :D

Two Dogs was alcoholic lemonade made in Adelaide Hills, when first came out it was good but at some stage I heard reports of shitty taste.
Havent seen it for awhile but then not looking for it either.

Looks like your connection to The Blokey Shed was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
