Got to send some to a Funds Manager in New Jersey......
Struggling to find a good store, need to credit card pay and ship to jersey or any good Aussie beer anywhere, it is very debatable if good Aussie beer exists
anyone got recommendations..... thanks

    Each state in Australia has it's own "special" beer. Toohey's is the one from New South Wales, XXXX from Queensland and Victoria Bitters (?) from Vic. Aussies think that Fosters is a joke....

    As for wine, have just spent the past six months in the Hunter Valley - their main focus is on semillon, however, I love the unoaked chardonnay from Marsh Estate. They ship and can be reached at www.marshestate.com.au. For a shiraz, I would suggest something from Barossa....hope this helps!

      Try the Wine board... I know there's a few coveted Australian wineries out there... but it's been a long time since I've looked into it, so my knowledge is lacking.

        Even more debatable s the existence of good Australian wine! :-)

        Try New Beer Distributors on Chrystie, near Rivington. They definitely carry Australian beers beyond FOster's and the guys there are helpful as all get out. I don't know if they ship.
