The cold­est beer in town

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
