Tooheys Extra Dry Platinum - but @ the same price as Tooheys Extra Dry & in a can.

My favorite hangover cure.

No taste.

6.5 percent (not @ bf i know but i can dream)

I vote for a Bluesfest alehouse with a wide range of craft beers on tap, served in glasses. Tooheys and Carlton free zone.

That's wishful thinking though. I suspect if such a bar exists it'll be out of the boot of our car.

At last Dan the voice of reason and sense chimes in. Full strength yup. Also I'd like the new kooky small 250ml cans of boorbon.

Due to their novelty size they are the correct strength (about 7%) to be a tasty beverage but still only 1 point something standard drinks to satisfy the wowsers who have/had control of the senate and brought in the stupid and ineffective RTD legislation.

And that's what I think about that!

Oh yeah, if we're being realistic then full strength beer is all it'll take to win me over.

Strewth, I do want to see some of the acts! Seriously though, I think one of the concerns is drunk teens hooning around the site creating mayhem. One of the best innovations in the fest's history was the year they had the side bar attached to Crossroads. Full of truly scary looking punters who frightened the bejesus out of any young'un who dared look in it would be brilliant to bring it back and ideal for an alehouse next year.

a $5 beer would be good. tickets have gone up to pay for the excellent lineup which is fair enough but how much is the booze going to increase by?

as it is only canned alcohol available,maybe kilkenny or even guiness. or maybe plastic bottles.and make the prices realistic.

I gave up drinking at BF last year. After spending too long in line for beer tickets and too long in line for beer you end up either drinking as much as you can on Monday to use up the tickets you have left over or have to throw away perfectly good money. A good selection of tap beer in plastic cups would be enough to get me back to the bar.

Coopers!! Please I'd even drink it out of a plastic cup.

OH and if Sir Shane McGowen returns Guiness please.

Gotta be Boags, made from pure Tasmanian water and taste great :) but only if price is reasonable, which is a big ask I know :)

whats wrong with yas tooheys new is liquid gold!!!!!

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

By no measurable criteria is Tooheys New actually a good beer.

Vaguely drinkable and alcoholic, yes (these two cancel each other out quite handily most of the time). Good, no.
