Will they export it elsewhere? I'd buy a six-pack out of sheer curiosity.

I don't think Mohammed went out into the desert and had a real vision, he got drunk and halucinated. He didn't want anybody else to have the same experience and start a rival religion so he forbade muslims to drink alcohol.

aryans (the 600 milliom or so north indian people) drink beer (the hindi word is soma) as a religious duty (although both the religious and the duty part have been forgotten somewhat due to the historical proximity to muslim lands and british colonialism)

muslims don't drink alcohol.

"The Prophet Muhammad also instructed his followers, at the time, to avoid any intoxicating substances -- (paraphrased) "if it intoxicates in a large amount, it is forbidden even in a small amount." For this reason, most observant Muslims avoid alcohol in any form, even small amounts that are sometimes used in cooking."

Still, some Muslims enjoy drinking. If you go to Turkey and Qatar, you'll see Muslims enjoying alcohol.

Pakistan, on the other hand, has a city named Islamabad. This leads me to believe there probably won't be a huge beer market there.

CBS time: I have a friend who's half-Pakistani who wanted to get to know her non-American half of family and lived in Pakistan for 6 months. She found out that while they're all prim and proper on the surface, as soon as you get to the underground clubs it's all booze and weed all the time. She said that she would have more ripping parties in a Pakistani clubs then she ever did in NYC. However since the booze is "illegal" a bottle of Gray Goose would put you back $60 or about 1 months pay.

They all claim to be "good Muslims" but it's all a show to keep the religious nuts in power happy. It's really a shame, if it wasn't for the fanaticism and rampant corruption US/Paskistani relations would be much better.

Actually, it would be fun if the nuclear war broke out as the result of a badly escalated bar brawl between some Indian and Pakastani call center workers.

Murree Beer is not bad, but not that good either. That said, definitely does the trick on a hot Ibad night.
