Dismayed by the quality of beers on offer in Australia back in 1854, Thomas Aitken, founder and head brewer of the Victoria Brewery, decided there ought to be a beer specially brewed for our harsh Aussie climate. A beer that is full flavoured, full strength and one that would quench a hard earned thirst like no other. Victoria Bitter contains: The choicest Australian pale malt to create that refreshing, thirst quenching taste. The brewery’s own special yeast, a very robust lager yeast that ensures the brew moves along at a rattling pace.
