The horror! The horror! Brewer runs out of beer!
In an even more drastic situation than the famous pub with no beer, Tasmanian brewer J. Boag & Son ran dry of two of its popular beer varieties during the peak Christmas period.
Several Launceston retailers were left without Boag’s Draught Light cans and Boag’s XXX Ale stubbies and cans for several days after the brewery’s own supplies ran out.
