  1. Alright, who from AM-B is going?

    I'm camping @ Bear Brook as it's too far to drive up for the day. I'm hoping to get clearance to
    ride Tuesday from my broken shoulder doc. If not, I'll be more roasted than ridden. <G>

    Actually, I wasn't thinking about that angle, but it works just as well

    That comment inspired me to pop open a Bass. I know, real English people hate it, but I like it, and
    I got a 12 pack for $10 on sale. I have actually heard of some people across the pond buying
    Budweiser and liking it, perish the thought. No offense to any Bud drinkers, of course.

    You are sick. There is neither cure nor treatment. You should end yourself now.

    Perish the piss.

    Shaun aRe drank Danish lager, a fantastic Australian white wine made from a classic German grape
    variety, a gorgeous slightly blushed French Methode Champaniose dry sparkling wine I bought from the
    actual wine maker himself, vodka with mixer, gin, tonic, ice and lime, some ordinary red wine (?)
    and some water this Friday/Saturday - didn't even see a Bud label anywhere ',;~}~

    I meant at the roast.

    I'll be bringing some myself, of course. I thought someone donated kegs to to cause.

    Ohh..... I dunno about THAT, I just hope a case is enough to get me through the day. perhaps Rolling
    Rock or Ballentine.

    > I'll be bringing some myself, of course.

    Of course.

    > I thought someone donated kegs to to cause.

    I tried to get him to but there were two problems...
    1)the park does not (officialy) allow alchohol
    2) he had already committed to supplying the beer for 2 weddings, w/in a month) and had no "extra"
    kegs.... we are really working to finish of the Dunkel Boc <belch>

    On a positive note, we are brewing up a batch of Russian Imperial Stout next week.. Unfortunately,
    it takes a full year to finish... Perhaps it'll be ready for the R&R2?

    Ah, so you are acquainted with that...that...stuff. Over here it is affectionately known as
    Clydesdale piss. No offense to John, of course.

    Actually, Budweiser seems quite good when compared to some of the really cheap swill they sell over
    here. You should try Pabst Blue Ribbon, Milwaukee's Best, or Stroh's sometime. I can't drink any of
    it. I get instant heartburn. Do they sell utter crap like that in England, or is it just an
    American thing?

    It is a thing of the whole world. I suppose we should thank the crap merchants, for without them, we
    would struggle to know the quality of truly excellent things for lack of a good comparison. What is
    day without night?

    Yer shittin' me, aren't you? England, home of better beer than anything American, serves Spudweiser
    on tap? And your government allows this to go on? Heck, it was English beers that caused the
    micro-brewery revolution to happen over here. People over here are moving away from that crap to
    better quality, lower volume beers. Now I know why the French burn down American fast food
    restaurants

    Well, I guess that is true, but the real reason for the existence of the really nasty stuff is so
    that hardcore alcoholics can maintain their drunk longer for a given amount of money.

    Not in the least. Last place I saw this was actually a really nice village pub - went in one week,
    and where there was a Carlsberg export tap the week before, now there stood the most dastardly red
    and white abomination........if it hadn't been for the genuine high quality draught ales on real
    pumps along the same bar, I think I might still be in serious emotional trauma therapy....

    > England, home of better beer than anything American, serves Spudweiser on tap?

    YES DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!

    > And your government allows this to go on?

    Our government is dastardly.......

    And thankfully, we have many, many of them here and readily available, despite the influx of USAian
    faecal matter. I hate Budweiser, I hate McDonalds, I hate Burger King..........it has started, I
    pray it ends before completion.......<shud-d-d-d-d-der......>.........

    Maybe, but surely it's better to drink cheap sherry or cider than that........stuff............

    It's quite simple when you think about it. Firstly, the English have a different drinking culture.
    We don't drink beer to appreciate the fine tastes brought about through the brewing process and the
    careful selection of ingredients (we have wine for that), we drink it because our entire social
    environment revolves around it. Whole communities and lives are shaped round drinking down the local
    pub, people go to the pub for lunch and go for drinks after work with their colleagues.

    So, for the most part, we drink lager. Why? Because you can drink gallons of the stuff. Now, the
    English don't produce many lagers (Carling is about the only one that readily springs to mind) and
    certainly none that are really any good. It's not easy to make a good, flavoursome lager and have
    everybody like it. As such, the less offensive the better, so from that point of view, Bud is a
    winner. It has very little taste, won't give you a minging hangover and importantly for the English,
    has a high alcohol content. Couple this with the 'overseas import' tag, the 'all-things-American'
    kudos, and a clever marketing campaign and it begins to make sense.

    At the end of the day, Bud isn't a /bad/ beer (I've certainly had much worse), it's just not a
    particularly great beer. It is, however, totally inoffensive and that's why the English like it.

    > Now I know why the French burn down American fast food restaurants

    Because they're protesting against the neo-imperialist foreign policy of your government?

    While I like pretty much every English beer I've ever had, I have to admit that some of the American
    microbrews are better. However, the English beers tend to be less filling, so I've switched to them.
    For instance, compare Guinness Extra Stout with Cream Stout by Sam Adams. By comparison, Guinness is
    wimpy, lacking both taste and body. However, Cream Stout is like drinking a milkshake -- I can have
    maybe two before my stomach is in knots. So, even though I like quite a few American brews more than
    English brews, I've switched to English (when I drink -- which is rarely).

    I do agree that Sudweiser sucks.

    Than 'some' of the English - it works both ways.

    Guinness is Irish.

    Then you're not getting the best Guinness.
