What beer marinated in beer may look like.

I don't know if you've ever heard of it but there's this beer that's imported from Australia called Foster's and it's really awesome i had a theme party the other day with some shrimp on the barbie and we had this little mini keg of fosters and we all called each other bloke and sheila and it was really cool you should try it.
 
2009-10-21 11:55:00 AM  
although why you have to eat shrimp off of some barbie's head, i still don't get. i guess that's part of why australians are so freakin' weird.

Marmite is conspicuously absent. As it should be.

It's not imported anymore Sheila. It's brewed in the States.

'beer marinated in beer' shall now forever be emblazed upon my mind.
 
2009-10-21 01:35:08 PM  
Here in America you can call them cookies if you want, but in Australia they take their anzac biscuits seriously and laws frown on marketing them as cookies--it would be akin to marketing wine as grape juice in France.

Why does Australia hate cookies?

I've made smoked kangaroo steaks at home and they were fantastic. Definitely worth trying.

I just threw up in my mouth a little. If I want to consume Saccharomyces cerevisiae I'll just drink my young homebrew. TYVM!

MEAT PIES!!!

FTFA:
The story of the Leatherwood honey is nothing short of a fairytale. On the remote island of Tasmania, ancient rainforests full of Leatherwood trees grow. Great southern ocean winds bring near constant warm rains, lending a hand to the January blooming. The massive trees erupt with white and maroon speckled flowers, causing workers bees to feverishly collect nectar. Inside the bees' stomachs, the nectar's molecular structure changes, becoming honey, and then is stored throughout the hive. The Leatherwood honey is gently harvested from inside these hives.

And they all lived happily ever after.

/Austrians have weird fairy tales.

Baked glamindagachuck is missing from that list.

Australian beer is bad enough without being marinated in other Australian beer.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with the Aussies, but I've never had a beer from Australia that wasn't terrible.

I'm not very impressed with Australian food. I once went to Outback Steak House and found it to be pretty much the same thing as Ruby Tuesday's, Bennigan's, and the like. OK food, but I would not want to go back unless I had a another gift certificate.

This. Well, except the exact opposite.
 
2009-10-21 01:41:24 PM  
Worthless without pics.
 
2009-10-21 01:41:49 PM  
List is fail. 3 of the 6 are either vinegar or olive oil.

Eh, needs garlic.
 
2009-10-21 01:42:07 PM  
based on that image, beer marinated in beer looks an awful lot like a black and tan around here...
 
2009-10-21 01:42:29 PM  
Since when are olive oil, honey, and vinegar considered "foods"?

I lived in Australia for a year, and lost 25 pounds while drinking heavily, simply because most of the food down there is tolerable at best. The only good food down there that I found was imported, ie Italian and Asian restraunts.
 
2009-10-21 01:42:31 PM  
Grreat article, man! I learned today that the entire country of Australia has one notable dish, 2 candies, and 3 condiments.

That's like reading British Hillside Quarterly. Just look at the way they roll along. Amazing.

Got a batch of Rogue Shakespeare Stout clone in the fermenter as we speak. Should be ready for consumption in about a month. Took a gravity sample saturday and it's spot on for taste and sugar conversion (fermentation). I nailed the OG this time! WOOO!

I'll take the milk steak, boiled over hard.

I'm putting a cerveza style on tap this weekend to join my brown ale style that's already there. Not sure what the next one will be.

I thought it was obvious. Also, I have never been to an Outback Steak House. I just assume it is the same crap as all those other chain restaurants.

Vegemite tastes like your mom.

Just by the name on the package, I would avoid that. No second thought. Who thinks this stuff up?

Technically, Outback is the smartest retard.

I can't believe they didn't mention Wiener Schnitzel. Hell, it's named after their Capital!
