Fancy A Shag! Not in Australia

Fancy a shag Posted by Hello

Amazingly the Australians have taken offence to this Dutch lager called Shag, and have moved to ban it. The beer brewed as Alpha beer is distributed in Australia by a british euntreprenuer as Shag. A spokes person for the company could not see the problem stating that it was named after the bird that appears on the label - a member of the cormorant family and a comon site even on cold scottish beaches.

However the ozzies were up in arms against there marketing campaign which showed a bottle in the back seat of a car with the slogan "Fancy a shag".

I can't imagine why they would have a problem with this at all!!!!
