    James Boag's premium lager 24x375 or VB 30x375 on sale from Woolworths!

    I was just looking at DealHouse's post about Woolworths specials and noticed their deal on beer from the Woolworths Liquor, not sure if it's at BWS or Dan Murphys, but often the same deals happen there too:


    Victoria Bitter Block 30x375ml Cans OR James Boag's Premium Lager Bottles 24x375ml
    $44 each
    SAVE UP TO $ 11

    James Boag's seems to be $44.95 at Dan Murphy's: James Boag's Premium Lager | Dan Murphy's | Buy Wine, Champagne, Beer & Spirits Online

    That's a good price on the Boag's it is one of Australia's last full strength full sized beers, it tastes delicious too.

    I thought VB put their alcohol content back up to 4.9%? On here: Victoria Bitter Stubbies | Dan Murphy's | Buy Wine, Champagne, Beer & Spirits Online it still says 4.6%.

    I know it did go down to 4.6% as you said but as to when it did/will go back to full strength I don't know, not really my sort of beer.

    They dropped it to keep the price down for tax purposes. From the Wikipedia page:

    On the 3rd of September, 2012, CUB announced VB will be going back to its original recipe of 4.9% and its original packaging. CUB had received many complaints since it was changed to 4.6% in 2009, and the beer had lost a large amount of market share. The updated VBs will begin rolling out in late October

    Victoria Bitter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    But yeah Boag's is more my beer than VB!

    Oh wow I didn't know they dropped it in 2009 I thought it was recent and there were so many angry consumers they decided to put it back up, it must have been at the same time that they dropped their longneck from 800Ml to 750 like everyone else.

    Extra Dry Platinum has also had lots of alcohol pulled out of it meaning it tastes almost the same as the normal Extra Dry.

    I think Coopers is the only mainstream beer above normal full strength beers, their sparkling is a nice beer but has to be ice cold and rarely goes on sale.
