Cool! I'm really only familiar with Foster's from Australia, which is served everywhere (it was THE beer in Dubai and far-too-common in the UK). I'd love to check out more.


Talk to any Australian and they will tell you that Fosters is the worst beer going around.

No Australian will touch it.

It's one of those great marketing tricks that has seen it more famous overseas than in the country that it supposedly came from.

And tonight is our annual cider drinking party, a little tradition imported from Asturias (where the in-laws are from). Hundreds of people pouring cider in extraordinary ways (like from great heights) into big tumblers held at the correct angle (49º) so that it creates just the right amount of fizz and splash on the footwear. All that, food and Benny Hill music in a muddy field!

Thanks for the ressurection, Tim! Since I can't drink alcohol anymore, I'm less likely to update this thread every other Friday or Saturday, but hey.....I can go out without booze too. So maybe tomorrow. smile

Hope you did well at the quiz.

2nd out of 11 teams, not bad eh? What hurts is that we lost by only 1 point, when you lose by a tiny margin you go over all the questions you should have got right ( and there were a few 'correct' answers we changed ), better to lose by a large margin.

That's true. 1 point is just annoying.

Tonight, I'm going out on my first Friday Beer in a long time, so even though it will be non-alcoholic for me, it shoudl be good.

Have a good one Thor, you deserve it!

Last weekend I indulged in a few pints of that hallowed American swill, Pabst Blue Ribbon, because we had some Bratwurst for dinner (one boils them in beer during the first stage of preparation). As Hemingway would say, the Pabst (4 pints for $3.50) "was good." Surprising crisp and fresh, with no signs of skunkiness. It was 88 degrees here last week (30 C), so the beer was refreshing. My dad used to drink Pabst Blue Ribbon in the '70s, and knowing this, my wife laughed at me when I selected the brand from the shelf at the market.

I've never known this brand of beer to be available in bottles, but then that would defeat the purpose, wouldn't it?

Oh my God, Thor dancing AND singing. I'm sure it was a hilarious sight. :-D

And what does the doctor say about the beers? ;-D

Yeah, it goes against the doctors' advice, but in the end it's my life (shorter though it may be). smile

Why did this thread die away?

Let's keep it alive -- FOREVER! smile

Going out with a few buddies for a regular Friday Beer downtown. It's a place with great beer selection, but the prices are Norwegian (i.e. insanely expensive), so don't know about the quantities.

Cheers!

The partying here is about as active as a geriatric ward!

COME ON, PEEPS!! It's Saturday and the Easter holiday is coming up! What is everyone's plans for the night?

I'll be going to a party in an hour with lots of film folks and colleagues, including the director (one of them, anyway) og the Norwegian, Oscar-nominated film KON-TIKI. Lots of hot chicks too, or so I've been told.

Cheers!

I am glad the beer is expensive where you are, maybe it will save a few bodies from being pick up on the road from drunk drivers, the liver will thank the prices as well. When you get a chance check out the film ON THE BOWERY-56.A REMAKE is due.

I tend to drink at home. Though I should be having some fun tomorrow at Green Flash brewery (local craft brewery). Next weekend Saturday I'm meeting with a few relatives on Saturday for beers.

God, what a Friday! I went to a 70mm screening of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS and was set to interview Vilmos Zsigmond (who had a Q&A beforehand), but he was a bit difficult, so I went on a drinking binge instead! RAVE ON#!

Just to share with you all, I had quite a lot of this at a party last weekend. Makes one realise he is getting too old for that now...cool
