It's bolder and more intense.

While the rest of the world is toying with mid-strength and zero-alcohol beer, Victoria Bitter, an Aussie icon has doubled down on the alcohol, releasing a stubbie with a 6% ABV.

For comparison, the usual VB stubbie has around 4.9% ABV.

VB Xtra, or as it is already being coined, VX, has the equivalent of 1.2 standard drinks in one 250ml stubbie. Fans can expect it to be bolder and more intense than ever.

VX will hit bottle shops later this week, with a four-pack costing $16.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
