Marty ,, you get 24 in a box mate ,, that's one for each our of the day ,,,,, we have corona beer here but its not selling to well at the moment ,,,haha ,,
HMMMMmmmm, Now I get why a lot of the beer companies over here puts only 18 beers in a carton, they must think a person might need a six or so hour break. LOLOLOL
I`m not sure if Corona beer sales have increased or decreased through all of this. I sure do see a lot more of their advertisements on TV. LOL

Back in the day, if you could not drink 24 twelve ounce beers in 12 to 14 hours your just a PUP. There was always a saying if you can't run with the big dogs then you better stay on the porch..... :smuggrin:

YUP, when I was practicing to be a drunk, an 18 pack of beer was not an hours worth. A very seasoned bartender once told me, martin, I wish all My drunks was like You, She went on to say, You get here earlier than anyone else, You are happy when you get here, You drink way more beer faster than anyone I have ever seen, You stay later than any of the other customers and You are happy when You leave.
YUP, I knew how to slugum down.

@Gravel That's about 200 Km west of Sidney, isn't it? Don't think that you guys can drink Aussies under the table, their average beer is almost twice as strong as ours, 6.5 to 9% ABV whereas most major brewery beers (Bud, Coors, Miller, Michelob, etc) are in the 4.0 to 5.2% ABV range. And they drink a LOT, all the time!

They have something called a "pipe" of beer that they drink, it's about 3' (1 m) tall! Fosters Lager comes in 25.4 oz (750ml) cans, put down three of those and "get kicked by a kangaroo", ay mate!

@Gravel , back in the spring of '88 (Jan - May) my best friend did a semester of college as an Exchange Student between here (the University of Nebraska - Lincoln) and Northern Rivers College in Lismore NSW, Australia! On weekends, he and his host college roommates would drive over to Byron's Bay and lay out on the beach and drink pipes of Cooper's Ale if the weather was good. He told me about their road trip on school break down to Sydney and the three windscreens they had to buy during the round trip there and back on your "highways", which from what was described to me as just very well maintained multi lane "gravel" roads with the gravel being pieces about 4-5cm (1½-1¾ inches) in diameter, or about a golfball sized, and that the heavy semi-truck traffic was constantly throwing those out from under their tires and into the vehicles unlucky enough to be behind them. I hope your roads have improved since then.

Them beers over there I think must be like the Canadian beers over here. I hve drank a bunch of those as My neighbor family is all Canadians. A real fun group to be around.
One time We were fishing on Ft. Peck catching walleyes. My neighbors relatives was here from Canada. I got a bite and hauled in a catfish. next morning that one guy said if I`d have caught that on My line the pole would have went one way and I the other. LOL None of them had ever seen a catfish.

mate for sure the roads are crap ,,, we have this new stuff now called TAR that they put over the top ,,,, NA MAN JUST KIDDING ,, the roads are so much better now , Some link roads between rural areas are bad But the HWY`s are great we dont have 8 or 10 lanes like i see in the movies but we maostly have 3 or 4 lanes each way , Trucka and busses have to stay left ( They dont but should ) .
BYRON BAY is just a yuppy Greenie leftie town now they are just hippy money makers ,,, We sat away from them dont want to catch anything that antibiotcs wont cure ,,,,,

Which is one of many reasons why I don't drink beers made by InBev (Corona, Modelo, Budweiser, Amstel, Heineken, St. Pauli Girl) or any of the other major brewery conglomerates and instead stick with our excellent, National Award-winning local Lincoln and Nebraska-made micro-brewery beers and some of the regionals like Boulevard or New Belgium.
