110922 Outlaw Junction News-Chop THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS! Foster's sell-off Edition
(Gold type for the colour of the Nectar I was drunked-up on)
Argh! (glug-glug-gargle-gargle!) THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS! Was the call from an Aussie worker, interviewed on ABC1 Breaky, after being told that Fosters, aka, “VB”, aka “Carlton Cold”, aka “Melbourne Bitter”, aka the very nectar I brew-up on, down south of the border in Melbourne (sympathetic names apply on this type of ishoooo!) is being flogged-off to a British global grog-maker, SAB Millers!
Right on, Bro'!
Of course, I'm being just a lot hypocritical here, because I curse to myself each time I think of the Fosters brand, and it's big corp reality, tied as big corp of every industry is to no consideration of the little fella, the Battlers who either work in their own small business, or build a small but high quality product, or are loyal drinkers of a local, small or large product.
Lately, I've thought much about the fact that beer, but grog generally, has no beneficial aspects aside from killing the pain of life, because once upon a local pub, “ale” had some, probably accidental, goodness in it's content.
In this day-and-anti-aging health revolution age, it's almost unconscionable that our self-medication - grog - isn't brewed with natural healthy qualities.
Like, for example, I drink my coffee with added slices of ginger and garlic, because of their antibiotic qualities.
But, that's another isshoo!
Fosters, while a huge global grog house, while I now know full-well that beer is not a healthy product to consume (but... refer to previous paragraphs), while I'd smoke the Holy Herb if the coppers had any guts, and forced it's legalisation, Fosters IS an iconic Australian brand/company/product, and has no doubt millions of Patriotic Aussies thirsting for a stubbb or a glass here and there, in some part because it is Australian.
So it's well worth a News-Chop to call for a blockade of the shareholders meeting to PROTEST against the sale to another British megalith of another Aussie brand, methinks!
Why..., next thing they'll be telling us that Australia belongs to the Queen of Englandenenen!
Aye? What! IT DOES?
Australian media for Australians!
Australian Land for Australians!
Australian Government for Australians!
AUSSIE BEER FOR AUSTRALIANS!
At the very least, a club of all-party politicians, and Workers, perhaps collectively known as "Publiticians"..., should UNITE and PROTEST this unacceptable offshore take-over of a great-tasting Aussie icon!
Mind you, when I lived in ol' Blighty, the beer WAS great! But I was edimacated by the Poms I got to know and love, to appreciate the “Free House beers”, which probably had less detrimental 'chemical' type ingredients than the mainstream piss.
And, perhaps as a warning, the mainstream English beer - tasted fucking horrible!
Therefore, in line with my rant about grog having healthy ingredients and attributes, the sale offshore of Fosters, might - not the first time - inspire some Aussie entrepreneurs to start brewing local, healthy beers.
In the 1980s, when I lived drunk in North Fitzroy, there was a slurge of local pub-breweries springing up, after, I think, government relaxed the brewing licence issue. All of these were begun by up-club young, rich trend-setters, who tied the product to the fad of false-class nightclub and pub venues.
As they do, the fad passed, after the pretty-girl venues became last-resort brawling hotspots, with ever-larger bouncers, and ever drunker idiots - male and female - falling out onto the footpaths and pissing in the gutters. Etcetera!
For a few years I wuz droivingk taxis mayte, and it was an issue, and a skill, to drive the long way 'round to avoid passing these pub-breweries after about 9pm.
Not that the concept was bad - well - it was! But that the 'trendiness' of such pub-breweries attracted an upemself attitude, specifically of the church-schooled sette, who were riding a mortgage around the corner, and thus claimed the lovely little pub premises as 'their local', thus set-up an 'exclusive-ist' attitude to the ocker on a pub-crawl.
NAH! Gotto stay Aussie Maytes!
I know the next Carlton Colds I drink will suddenly have an unwashed English taste to them.....
