A Cabulture man has demonstrated the importance of beer, returning to a Queensland pub after a fight with a knife sticking out of his back.

Earlier this month, two men were kicked out of a pub in Beerwah, around an hour north of Brisbane.

The two men, one a local the other from nearby Cabulture, were known to each other, and continued the fight outside.

A spokesperson for Queensland Police Service reported the 20-year-old Beerwah man stabbed his 27-year-old opponent in the back, after which the older man returned to the pub for his drink.

The police were called and he was transported to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, said to be in a stable condition.

The spokesperson said QPS was being assisted with their enquiries, and that a “substantial” amount of alcohol was involved.

It has not been disclosed whether charges will be laid.

Police also did not disclose a description of the weapon, nor the beer.
