    Wow. 24?! :eek:

    Either these are really watered down beverages (a la the American Budweiser) or Aussies are really good at holding their alcohol before even coming close to tipping over! :)

    One slab per day is pretty damned strict for V8 Supercar fans.

    And no, we Aussies don't drink light beer (light meaning low alcohol) - doing so is a serious faux pas.

    So is that 24 cans of beer in addition to 4 litres of wine?
    Hmmmm. ;)
    Or is it assumed if you are a beer drinker you don't touch wine, and vice versa?

    Mind you I'd be dead before I finished 24 cans of beer.

    I couldn't finish one can of Foster's... without vomiting/laughing at how awful it tastes.

    No Aussie drinks Fosters. You can't even buy it in pubs. It's the crap we send overseas.

    Not hard to drink a case in a day, starting at 8:30am or so I've done it a couple of times.

    V8 Supercar fans will be annoyed, they need a lot more than a slab to make the races interesting...

    We have the American Le Mans Series and require no beer at all for a good day of racing. :)

    But I do enjoy seeing the bits of the Bathurst 1000 race we get when Speed TV doesn't know what to do with itself in the CRASHCAR offseason.

    Fosters: Australian for Budweiser.

    I noticed that they didn't address the hard stuff. So, could you drink 24 beers AND a 750ml bottle of vodka/whisk(e)y/etc?

    That means Fosters isn't even beer, so it must be exempt from the limits.

    Agreed, I'm a real b*****d until I'm on my 5th liter of wine.;)

    This is why I rather stay at home, set up the plasma, invite a few mates, have a BBQ and drink as much as we want :)

    Pure Blonde FTW! :)
