If You Thought Wildfires Were Going To Stop Australia From Delivering Beer To Stranded People, Think Again

Word on the street is Australians love their beer. So, when a pub in bushfire-affected Mallacoota ran out, folks jumped to action to make sure the community gathering place would be able to serve its thirsty patrons.

Mallacoota Hotel Motel arranged a last-minute delivery of 3000 liters of beer with Carlton & United Breweries to be delivered on the Navy ship HMAS Choules. Imagine getting your booze delivered to you via Navy!

“The pub is at the heart of regional communities. And a pub with no beer is bad enough at the best of times,” CUB chief executive Peter Filipovic said.

Twenty kegs of Victoria Bitter and Carlton Draught, three pallets of VB stubbies, and 36 slabs of Strongbow and Great Northern were loaded onto the boat Thursday.

“After what Mallacoota residents and fires have been through the least we could do is make sure they could enjoy a beer,” Filipovic said.

CUB also provided four kegs for free.

With the road in and out of Mallacoota closed due to bushfires, 4000 people are stranded in the Victorian town. And regular beer delivery is impossible.

“For the people who have chosen to stay in Mallacoota, there is replenishment supplies coming through the ADF until such time as the highway can be reopened,” Gippsland MP Darren Chester explained.

The HMAS Choules is returning to Mallacoota with food, fuel, power, and booze, hopefully making the Australians who choose to stay more comfortable and perhaps in better spirits as well.
