Blog: Chris Brook-CarterAnything you can do

Of course, just-drinks doesn’t like to deal in stereotypes, however they are hard to avoid at times.

The world’s oddest beer centred promotion, the Darwin Beer Can Regatta in Australia’s Northern Territory, attracted a record field this year with more than 20 improbable boats.

This was the 30th time the event – which confirms, to some, general assumptions about the Territory lifestyle - had been held.

The rules are simple. Crews take to the water on vessels made from beer (or soft drink) cans, which must be capable of staying afloat with four people. Adding pieces of plastic or plywood is acceptable but just sticking cans on an existing vessel means instant disqualification.
