IN what can only be described as typical Aussie humour, when the beer began to flow again across NSW following a six month strike at Tooth’s Kent Brewery in April 1946, it was quickly declared “B-Day”.
Tooth’s were the biggest selling brewery in NSW at the time. A similar strike, which lasted for six weeks, in 1949 had similar consequences, drying up hotels around the state. While some pubs had interstate supplies shipped-in, the beer often dried-up quickly. When the strikes ended, thirsty men (and women) flocked back to their local watering holes.
