One Australian summer, legendary chief brewer, Bill Leitner, decided to brew a beer that could really cut through a tough Aussie thirst.
So instead of the traditional ales that were still brewed in Australia at the time, he developed a new lager-style beer with a crisp, bitter taste â€“ perfect for drinking icy-cold in the harsh Australian climate.
Better than any â€˜XXXâ€™ beer of the time, it deserved a fourth X to indicate its superior quality â€“ and the XXXX BITTER legend was born.
So next time youâ€™re having a XXXX BITTER, raise a glass to Bill. â€˜Cause thanks to him, Aussies have the perfect beer thatâ€™s tough on thirst.
