Reasons why the ACT is better than NSW – Beer in Aldi

By johnboy - 25 July 2008 18

In our ongoing list of things a year in NSW has taught me are better here I present: beer in Aldi.

~$40 gets you a 24 can slab of 500ml cans of German made Thuringer. And they have domestically brewed beers as well (of course from brands you’ve never heard of before, this is Aldi).

Many a New South Welsh considers an Aldi run to pick up a slab to be an essential part of a visit to Canberra.

What’s Your opinion?

The German beer at Aldi doesnt give me a hangover. Therefore, Best. Beer. Ever.

As an aside, I think Germany is attempting a Fourth ( fifth?) Reich and attempting to take over the world via cheap priced Supermarkets.

Cans are lined with food grade plastic these days I believe.

Purity laws or watered down with free added chemicals???

Pure, but still somehow sealed inside a single piece of aluminium. Mmmmmm…. Tinnie.

I love the white cask wine.

The wife loves the red cask wine.

Together, it’s harmony (after a few anyway)

The Aldi piss is fantastic. Really if you put any icy Aldi brew into a cold galss besie a cold glass of Carlton Draught no one would know. Bring it on Aldi – bigger question though…Is CostCo going to sell berr, wine and spritis when it comes to Australia?

The evil grip of the hotelliers is strong through most of the State you’ll find.

…um….which aldi in nsw did you shop at – was it down the coast? then yeah, no beer in aldi (for some reason) but i’m pretty sure they have it in aldi bowral.

Screw the purity laws – its beer that tastes like beer.

I prefer Shipstone’s Crew – malty and full flavour. Onya Aldi.

The Thueringer, as a can’s label gives away, is, in fact, brewed by the largest independent German brewery, Oettinger. Oettinger is less known than other smaller German beer brands simply because they have a zero-advertisement policy. However, last year, Oettinger was the only German brewery which managed to actually increase sales (within Germany) as opposed to losing customers. The “Oettinger Helles”, which the Thueringer really is, is a great, great beer, brewed after the Bavarian purity law. I used to drink it all the time, when I still lived in Germany. 🙂

I thought, I’d share this “insight”, as I see the Thueringer discussed quite often in different forums, and it seems people do not make the connection to what it really is.
