G'day fellas

Does anyone know any joints that sell Darwin stubbies here in Adelaide? The Melbourne Street Wine Cellars has them but I don't fancy paying twenty-five bucks for a bottle.

I've got two of them (full) in my cellar - I bought them about 3 years ago when I was visiting the top end...

I wonder if the 3 years has improved them at all?!?!

lol, i doubt it. and the best bit is they aren't even made here in Darwin anymore. CUB pulled down the brewery a long time ago and its made in either QLD or Melb (but i could be wrong - sure not here)

Kai,
I think you'll find they're about $25 in Darwin too. Very touristy!

I feared that would be the case, Steve. I can't imagine CUB would want to keep it round as a 'normal' beer, as I imagine it'd be a pain in the arse on the bottling line.

How much do they cost in your neck of the woods, big d?
