Luxurious beer $ 1 a sip
Australian brewery started – against the economic crisis – sale of a new type of dark beer included in the price 25 Australian dollars, hoping to attract gourmets with thick wallets. By comparison, a case of popular Australian beer like Victoria Bitter costs money 38 Australian dollars. For a case of Moo Brew 2008 Vintage Stout from Moorilla Brewery would have to be paid 600 Australian dollars. Producer representative David Macgill says, that liquor, which is brewed in oak barrels once a year, it looks more like good wine than regular beer and that is supposed to explain the high price. – Unlike most beers, it gets better with time and can be stored for up to three years – He said. – We have only 1515 bottles, and each one has a number. We have already sold 800-900. Most of the customers are Australians, who are looking for something special – added. Last year, the company sold everything in a week. Beer includes “lots of blind, roasted malt, which gives a chocolate aftertaste, balanced by the aroma of oak”.
– Ma 7,95 proc. alcohol, so you can get a little tipsy – describes Macgill. Alcohol is Australia's third most priced local drink. The manufacturer is not afraid of the lack of customers. – Beer is becoming a new wine for many people and despite the global crisis, there is still a market for unusual products – Macgill emphasizes.
