It started in 2013, when Kirin Australia announced it would start offering growlers for $3.99.
A year later, when the beer-making giant announced it was to be acquired by SABMiller, there were still a few hundred thousand of them in Australia.
And so, in the fall of 2013, the Herald Sun and The Australian revealed the extent of the problem.
A small group of Australians were complaining that they had been drinking more beer and getting sick from the increased levels of CO 2 in the atmosphere.
In fact, they were drinking more than a third of the beer they were allowed to consume.
It was a major scandal.
The Herald Sun reported that: The ABC understands a group of four men from Victoria who are members of a group called the Kirin Association in Melbourne have been contacted by senior SAB Miller executives about the problem and they have asked the group not to say anything.
One of the men told the Herald that he had spent two months on the phone with the company’s head of research and development, Michael Gough.
Mr Gough, a former Australian of the Year and an expert in CO 2 levels, told the ABC he was unaware of any complaints about the growing levels of carbon dioxide in the air.
“It’s a small group, but it’s definitely a group that is growing in number,” he said.
“The Australian Public Service Commission, which oversees the Australian Drinking and Gaming Commission, has said that we are one of the top five CO 2 emitting countries in the world.”
That year, the Kirin Australia growler company was acquired by Australian multinational SABMiner, which later acquired the Kirin brand for $1.7 billion.
Mr Turnbull said the group was aware of the problems.
“We are aware of a complaint made about the growth of beer growlers at Kirin Australia, and we are in the process of examining that,” he told ABC Radio National.
The ABC’s investigations found that a number of Kirin Australia employees had also been asked not to speak to the media, but were in fact making public statements. “
As far as I’m concerned, it’s a very serious issue and we’re looking into it.”

One manager who spoke to the Herald said the company had been aware of complaints from customers about CO 2.
“That was a concern that we had to address, and I’m confident that that was addressed,” he says.
SAB’s corporate office told The Australian that the company did not know of any growth in the problem, and that it would be taking “a few weeks” to make any changes to its policy. “
One thing that we’ve noticed with SAB is that they’re very proactive about managing complaints, so it was not that much of a surprise to us that there were complaints.”

“SAB Miller’s CO2 management and monitoring processes are rigorous, ensuring that the CO2 levels of the brewery are consistent with its industry standards. “
“These processes are in place to protect the environment and meet the needs of our customers, so any issues arising are resolved immediately.” “
When contacted by The Australian, Mr Grough denied any suggestion that he was involved in the alleged scheme. “

“I am not involved in any of the complaints,” he replied.
“All my staff are working hard to meet all our CO2 requirements, so that we can continue to deliver great beer to the Australian consumer.”
The Herald’s investigation found that while SAB Australia did have a policy in place about how to manage the CO 2, Mr Turnbull had failed to follow it.
“Mr Turnbull is not the person in charge of CO2, but he is aware of and responsible for CO2 policy,” Mr O’Connor said.
He added that Mr Turnbull’s role as an employee of SAB was not the same as that of a manager.
Mr Ollie’s email with the ABC was sent to SAB on February 11, 2014, about the rising levels of C02.
Mr Sargent said the Australian Public Services Commission was in touch with him about the matter and he was “currently looking into the matter”.
He said the CO two levels had already been cut to about 400 parts per million, down from 1,500 parts per billion, and said he was working with a “small number of people” to get the CO levels down to 1,000 parts per trillion.
“So we have to do a bit of an adjustment,” he added.
“And if we can get it down to that, that’s good.
But I’m not going to put a figure on it.
Mr Oleye also confirmed that Mr Goug had been asked to
