Australian navy delivers 800 gallons of beer to thirsty town after supply lines cut by fires

Mallacoota, a small coastal town in the state of Victoria, was isolated from the rest of the country when a devastating bushfire ripped through it on New Year’s Eve, destroying homes and cars, and cutting off the one road in and out.

Due to the lack of road access, residents have been receiving supplies through emergency shipments from the Royal Australian Navy ship HMAS Choules — and beer is no exception.

“The pub is at the heart of regional communities, and after what Mallacoota residents and firefighters have been through the least we would do is make sure they could enjoy a beer,” Carlton & United Breweries CEO Peter Filipovic told CNN.

Locals rejoiced at the news of the incoming shipment, with some posting “God bless the navy” and “Not all heroes wear capes” on a Mallacoota Community News Facebook page.

1. The threat of no beer will motivate any town there to fight climate change.
