The coldest beer in town
AUSTRALIANS love their beer and the challenge has been on to find the coldest beer in Childers.
Bar tenders, managers and patrons across all venues said they had the coldest beer on tap in town.
The challenge was set to answer the big question and a winner has been declared.
Armed with a food grade thermometer from Kape Centro, The unsuspecting venues welcomed the test to prove once and for all who had the coldest beer.
At each venue, the bar tenders poured their coldest beer and presented the glass for testing.
It was a nervous wait for patrons and bar staff as the thermometer slowly revealed the final reading.
Third place was awarded to The Federal Hotel, recording a chilly 5.9 degrees, but unfortunately not the coldest beer in town.
The Isis Club patrons insisted the coldest beer was sold there; not wanting to upset the patrons or management, the club sadly recorded a temperature of 5.8 degrees.
Embracing the opportunity to prove it had the coldest beer was the Isis RSL, which recorded 5.7 degrees, placing it second.
Coming out on top with the coldest recorded temperature in Childers was the Grand Hotel with a very frosty 5.2 degrees.
So it’s official – the Grand Hotel had the coldest beer on the day.
There was no scientific intervention or professional equipment used in this experiment.
Thank you to all the venues for kindly taking part in a little bit of fun and the battle of the beers will surely continue as publicans will insist on a re-match some time in the future.
No beer was wasted as happy patrons insisted on drinking the amber gold before it got too warm.
