"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer." Frank Zappa.
In 2010 His Highness Tsar William I commissioned the construction of the Commonwealth’s first official brewery. The National Institute of Chemical Engineers (NICE) was employed for the task, following continued lobbying from the group “Consumers Of Luxury Drinks” (COLD). Construction and management of the plant was, and is, overseen by the union of Brewing Engineers, Exporters, and Refrigerators (BEER). The crown-funded project has since been known as the "NICE COLD BEER Initiative."
In May 2010, the first bottles of "Commonwealth Ale" rolled off the production line. Since then the brewery has produced a fine stout, a crisp Pilsner, and a feijoa wine. Production continues with a variety of lagers, Pilsner, ales, a refreshing "black and tan," and a delicious ginger beer among our achievements to date.
Sadly, due to restrictive trade and exportation laws in neighbouring New Zealand, our beverages can only be enjoyed on Arborean soil and cannot be exported at this time.
