Ask Real Beer

I am trying to locate a distributor who carries Toohey's beer from Australia. I have had no luck finding it in Ohio. Any suggestions?

From Beer Dave: Tooheys used to be imported into the US when G. Heileman of LaCrosse, Wisconsin was owned by Bond Holdings, which was Tooheys parent company. When this corporation was broken up, Tooheys went away. Then a few years later Tooheys was brewed in Memphis, Tennessee by Coors in a joint agreement with Lion Nathan of New Zealand (brewers of Steinlager). The agreement was broken up about four years ago. We have Tooheysless ever since.
