They say there’s nothing new under the sun, but like all popular sayings, it’s worth questioning.
There’s nothing new about the awe-inspiring blue of the Aussie sky… but now it’s also reflected on a tinnie of Underdog.

There’s nothing new about cheering on an underdog… but it’s easy to see why this Underdog, designed by a brewer who picked up an AIBA trophy for a mid-strength pilsner when at The Monk in Freo, is gaining new fans all the time.
