Where to buy Oz/NZ beers?

    I will admit to being a fan of the above, and was very lucky for the past number of years to be able to get a decent selection in most off licences. However, I've noticed in the past few months that they have become nearly impossible to get and I've Googled online sites but nobody seems to have them.

    Does anyone know if there is some sort of supply issue (like one guy in a good off licence told me) or if the ultimate disaster has happened and they are no longer brewing/selling these beers in Ireland? I hope hope that it's not the latter!! :eek::(

    What type of beers? Speights and the likes or Garage project?

    James Boags, Coopers, Speights......anything really..... Carlton Draught would be the dream! :D

    I've seen Boag's and Cooper's Pale Ale in SuperValu. One importer, I don't know which, is bringing in Mac's. The BrewDog-brewed Yeastie Boys range is knocking around a few of the better supermarkets too, if that counts.

    Thanks BeerNut! :) I used to see (and get) Boag's and Coopers Pale Ale in loads of places, but the supply has vanished in recent months. Any online sites that would deliver? What's Mac's though? I'm unfamiliar with that one....

    New Zealand brewery. Used to be a brewpub in Wellington, now part of the Kirin empire.

    Have you tried Martins? They are showig as having Boags and Coopers in stock online... but not sure how reliable that is:

    Last one I bought was in The Wine Centre in Kilkenny but it was way less than fresh. There's a lot to be said for drinking local.

    Molloys off licence carry Macs beers , The clonsilla branch has 2 or 3 of the range
