Good article. What was that about coca-cola working with coopers?

"Most new products [are] between 3.5 per cent and 4.5 per cent alcohol by volume, which means the beer market is well placed in the regulatory world. Essentially, all beer is low alcohol - it's actually hard to make anything above 5.5 per cent taste good"

I loved that part, gives me a excuse for nearly all of my beers!

Looks like once again the mass brewers are mass debating.

edit: I was under the impression that Coca Cola Amatil sold the Warnervale brewery plant to SAB Miller - so do they still own the plant or not? The article doesn't make it clear.
