Thread Name: BS: What's your favourite brew/beer?
Subject: RE: BS: What's your favourite brew/beer?
IN THE MILITARY I BEGAN TO BE IMPRESSED HOW THEY MANAGE TO BREW GOOD BEER JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE. I EVEN HAD A DRINKABLE VIETNAMESE BEER, "33." IN TURKEY I DRANK A TURKISH VERSION OF TUBORG, WHICH WAS FINE. MY FAVORITE ALL TIME BEER WAS THE DRAFT SERVED TO VISITORS TOURING THE CARLSBERG BREWEREY IN COPENHAGEN. I THOUGHT THE BAVARIAN BEERS, LIKE LOWENBRAU (CAN'T MAKE NO UMLAUT) AND HOFBRAU, WERE WONDERFUL TAPPED FROM WOODEN CASKS IN THE MUNICH BEER HALLS, BUT I DON'T LIKE THEM AT ALL IN BOTTLES. THESE DAYS I SURVIVE ON BASS, NEWCASTLE, AND SIERRA NEVADA. WHEN FORCED TO DRINK A DOMESTIC, IT MUST BE A "RED SNAPPER." (BUD) BUT MOST OF ALL I AGREE WITH WINSTON CHURCHILL. WHEN HE DISCOVERED HIS VOLUNTEER TYPE-SETTERS DRINKING FLAGONS OF BEER WHILE SETTING TYPE IN THE WWI GOVERNMENT PRINTSHOP HE OVERSAW, WINSTON ASKED IF THEY HAD ENOUGH. "OH,YES," YOUR EXCELLENCY, "CAME THE REPLY, "THEY HAVE PLENTY." "THERE'S NO SUCH THING!" ROARED WINSTON, "SEND OUT FOR MORE!"
