Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being abroad is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. In Australia it was sometimes rather difficult. We found out that there are quite some local beers, only known in that particular area. But anyway, we did like the Tooheys.
Tooheys is an Australian brewery in the suburb of Lidcombe in Sydney and is a standard lager. The brewery dates back to 1869 and the brand Tooheys was first brewed in 1930. Tooheys can be found on tap at almost any bar in New South Wales, although it is not so common in other states and sometimes even has a poor reputation overthere. We saw that it was also available in cans and bottles as Tooheys Draught. Good taste and flavour!
Favorite thing: The Pacific Highway runs right through the town taking a sharp turn on either end of the bridge over the Manning River before heading north and south. It is a big, modern, attractive town servicing the surrounding rural industries and driven by tourists and travellers who pass through the town. It is located 16 km inland from the mouth of the Manning River and consequently has tended to develop more as a service centre and stopover point than as an actual tourist destination.
