They never said he was drinking 2500 bottles a month. Just that he was spending that much money. He could’ve been buying expensive beer. If he was, maybe that only amounted to 30 or so beers a day.

I’ve heard stories about how high the taxes are on beer in canada. Maybe it’s the same in australia.

I think they would have taken the taxes into consideration. Also, the judge was familiar enough with the Bitter to even admonish the guy. That would lead me to believe it was a less expensive brew.

Maybe some of our Aussie FRiends can educate us on this.
