Tin­nies a throw­back to 1982

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

ICONIC Queens­land brew­ery XXXX has given a wink to the past with its spe­cial edi­tion Com­mon­wealth Games cans.

From March, more than 12 mil­lion com­mem­o­ra­tive XXXX cans will be made avail­able – some of them likely to re­main on shelves at home as a re­minder of the cel­e­bra­tion.

Games in­sid­ers say the cans are in­tended to cel­e­brate the re­turn of the Com­mon­wealth Games to Queens­land.

“The best of them is a can which is like a throw­back to the 1982 games. It’s a replica of the one they had then,” the Games in­sider said.

Games Min­is­ter Kate Jones said it was fit­ting that XXXX pro­duced the com­mem­o­ra­tive cans. “In years to come, these cans will be a spe­cial part of Queens­land’s his­tory,” Ms Jones told the Bul­letin.

“It’s pieces of mem­o­ra­bilia like this that last gen­er­a­tions.”

XXXX Brew­ery Di­rec­tor Irene Bell said GC2018 com­mem­o­ra­tive cans would ap­pear in spe­cially-marked car­tons of XXXX GOLD and would be sold at ma­jor liquor out­lets across the state.
