Beer!
#11
I had some kind of Belgian ale not long ago with a picture of a Madonna on it that was really good...it cost an arm and a leg...even had sediment in the bottom.[Image: beer.gif]
 
On the lighter side I like Blue Moon...or on a hot day Corona and lime...
 
On the darker side, I like a Guinness, or a Murphy's...or  Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout.[Image: thumb.gif]

It's fantastic to see a fellow native of 'Straya on the board, but you're letting the team down! [Image: laff.gif] Where's the VB gotten to? For all you poor, deprived people who don't call the Lucky Country home, don't believe the lies when they try to tell you that Fosters is Australia's beer! Victoria Bitter forever!

 
Not a huge fan of the native state's bitter, but des do the job after about a dozen or so. Fosters is made in the same mix as Crownies, did you know?
I worked in a bottle shop for a while (Bull n Bush do you know it? out at baulkham hills) and I went for a tour of the CUB in Broadway and there it was! Crownies and Fosters in the one vat!!

Varus,

I'd imagine that would be tough to get and expensive, even in Europe? I daresay that would be the holy grail of my beer tour of the world. [Image: smile.gif]

Quote: Like Gladius says, it is available in many grocery stores throughout Europe, but mostly the better ones. But it is quite expensive, especially here in Norway with all the additional sales tax. Darn Socialists!!!!!
 
But I support the Holy Grail statement. Hopefully, I'll go on a beer tour in August and you can only guess where I'll be...[Image: biggrin.gif]
 
mine is Carlton Draught

One for the Aussies, if you haven't tried James Squire Amber Ale, it gets my seal of approval. Not cheap, but worth every cent. [Image: wink.gif]

More money for fewer beers is not "bad math", so to speak, as the better beers are not to be consumed like Schlitz or OM's Best Light.  One or two is good for the day, and more enjoyable than a dozen of the liquids that falsely take the name beer - yellow and alcoholic do not fill the bill.

Can't say I know Baulkham Hills very well, unfortunately. I've lived all but two years of my life up at Gosford, so knowledge of Sydney isn't my strong point.

I'm not in the least surprised about the sinister Fosters/Crownies relationship though. More ammunition for my "Crown has to be Australia's most over-rated beer!" crusade [Image: laff.gif] Eyewitness evidence and all!

Fantastic idea. I'm thinking it should be compulsory, maybe a sort of Hajj for Christian beer drinkers. Every man who has the means must undertake at least one beer tour in his lifetime. [Image: laff.gif]

I buy whatever's cheapest at the supermarket, and rarely get to sample the boutique beers or real ales, alas. At the moment my fridge is full of this:

Thank you! [Image: thankyousomuch.gif]

Ah yes, a schooner of New certainly doesn't go astray on a nice hot day. That's a fine example of a discerning palate, but Crown Lager? Please, not that! [Image: laff.gif][Image: beer2.gif]
