  Article Content


XXXX (pronounced 'Four-ex') is a German style lager beer brewed in Milton, Australia by Australia's first brewers, Castlemaine[?]. Its name, first introduced in 1924, is a throwback to the long standing tradition of using X's to indicate the strength of an ale.

It contains about 5.1% Alcohol. Bland but palatable, its frequent imbibing leads to fierce loyalty toward the subject matter. Competes locally with Victoria Bitter and not, contrary to popular belief outside Australia, with Fosters. In fact, Fosters (an international Australian icon) is rarely seen in most of Australia these days!

Not to be confused with the made up pornographic classification system of the same name, frequently seen in spam email subjects.
