The least he could of done was have a real beer. Geesh!

Fresh, crappy, heavily marketed beer... The stuff that makes
American beer "famous" the world over. Is "Bud World Select" an
oxymoron, or what? <G>
Here in New England, we can get fresh, GOOD beer, from places like
Magic Hat, Ipswitch, New England Brewing, Brooklyn, Otter Creek,
I can walk to a place with 40 beers on tap, where they put the date
the keg was tapped right on the menu chalkboard. <G> Just for
diversity, they bring in stuff from Rogue River, Sierra Nevada, etc...
as well as Euro stuff, casks, and barleywines.
Damn... It's only 06:50, and now I could go for a fresh microbrew...
I remember being a DeGaulle airport when the French national hobby,
striking (in this case, the baggage handlers) disabled everything.
Maggy went off to buy a couple beers and had to pay top dollar for
imported stuff because the local stuff was sold out. The imported
stuff, you ask? Budweiser. Shit. Or is that redundant?
I thought striking was the Italian national hobby.
I've seen the French protests during the Tour de France, but that's
I sat still for 5 hours on a high speed train (yeah, right...) between
Rome and Padua due to a spontaneous strike. My wife and I were both
eyeing the same cookie... <G>

Lucky. I've tasted French beer.
You'll never get anywhere if you believe what you "hear".
What do you "know"?

A man and his wife were sitting in the living room and he said to her,
"Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent
on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just
pull the plug."
His wife got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all of his beer.
After a Beer Festival, in London, all the brewery presidents decided to go
out for a beer.
The guy from Corona sits down and says "Hey Senor, I would like the world's
best beer, a Corona." The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and
gives it to him.
The guy from Budweiser says "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me
'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one.
The guy from Coors says "I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain
spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it.
The guy from Guiness sits down and says "Give me a Coke." The bartender is a
little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered.
The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask "Why aren't you
drinking a Guiness?" and the Guiness resident replies "Well, if you guys
aren't drinking beer, neither will I."

In the SFWIW category, belong to another list who has an Irishman on it
who lives very near the river where Giuiness gets its water.
He won't drink Guiness.
Guiness is brewed in several places. I had a friend whose father worked for them
and he (the father) could tell you where it was brewed from a single mouthful.
I love the draught variety but I'm not wild about the bottled version.
