Aussie volunteers helping with effort in the bushfire stricken town of Mallacoota are still Aussie's at the end of the day.
And a hard-earned thirst needs a big cold beer...
About 3,000 litres of it courtesy of Carlton & United Breweries and delivered by the HMAS Choules, an Aussie navy warship.
The town was facing "going dry" in almost a weeks time, so the Mallacoota Hotel owner Lou Battel put in an emergency order that was delivered by sea.
"We were running low of supplies and a pub can't run without beer, can it? Every Australian needs a beer and definitely the emergency services working non-stop,"
"Our good old friends from Carlton managed to send us some stock on Thursday and I hope it gets here after the 20 hours or so it takes the boat to make the trip."
A little feel-good story for you all.
Here's hoping there's some relief from the fires soon and the spirits of t=al involved get some much-needed respite.
From all of us,
