the nation's favourite cider, British-made Strongbow

I hate to be a cider snob (is there even such a thing?), but that shiat is nasty.

When in Amsterdam, do not ask a dude in some dope shop for a 'pipe'. He won't be giving you an apparatus to smoke tobacco or tobacco related products, if you know what I mean.

FYI: Black Velvet doesn't contain cider, it contains champagne. Black Velveteen is what you are looking for.

LOL! I've been to the Netherlands and their beer is #1 in the world for a reason... It kicks ass. No it's not my favorite but it's up there on my list. I think it's funny how we Americans are always at "war" against something we don't like, but the English are always trying to "save" something. "War against obesity!" "All Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group?" Is there a hidden message there?

Heineken: 50% marketing, 50% disappointment.

Although I've heard their domestic recipe produces a much better beer than the export variety we get. This is from a good friend that cross-decked to a Dutch warship in the Navy. Other nations have beer onboard their warships, and evidently the Heiny on the Dutch ship was good stuff.
 
2012-07-12 11:42:07 AM
Am I the only one that thinks maybe the Olympics are nearing the end. The massive investment in infrastructure and security necessary to pull them off is insane. There has to be a breaking point eventually. Corporate sponsorship and massive local taxes expenditures have their limit.

There is talk of the 2022/26 winter games in Denver. As a Denverite, and I am not alone, "Fark the olympics, you can keep them."

//Interesting fact, Denver is the only city to be awarded the games('76) and reject them.

Ahh, ok. I usually have to describe it to the bartender anyway - I've also head it called Black and Tan, but I think that's with lager.

This. Also, Heineken is the Hamm's of Holland. Only poor people drink it.

shiat sells for around €8-€9 per case.

This is a serious concern. Very few cities have been able to make their facilities work out long-term after the games. The London Games is supposedly using a lot of modular, moveable designs for its sports venues that can be taken to the next edition of the Olympics.

I'm pretty sure people say that about every crappy, overhyped import we get in the US. You hear all the time about how Guinness in Ireland is just SO MUCH BETTER than what we get here. Although I've never heard that from someone who's knowledgeable about beer, and I've never been to Ireland myself, so who the fark knows?

Prague is fantastic. Probably my favorite city that I've ever visited. Even the bullshiat touristy stuff there is just wonderful. I'm going to spend a couple of days there after Oktoberfest this year (assuming that I survive my first time in Munich) and I can't wait..

Back in '06, a friend of mine bought me a bottle of Guinness Extra Stout, and I thought it tasted better than the stuff at my local grocery store. Then again, I didn't do a blind taste test, so meh.

Have you done the beer bath at the Chodovar Brewery? It's one of the things on my "to do" list.

Dude you are confused. Holland does have some great beers (I like La Trappe) but it's also the macro-shiate-beer exporting heavyweight of Europe. That's pretty much what they're known for. Well, that and crappy hothouse tomatoes. :-)

CSB:

My first/last/only visit there was back in May of 1991. All these street vendors were selling surplus Soviet military attire. During that time of my life, I was living in Belgrade, and had the chance to travel all over Eastern Europe. The one thing I notice during that trip is that Prague seemed way ahead of other cities that were behind the "Iron Curtain".

Best beers I have ever found are from Czech Republic (Velvet is superb!), England, Canada, and Belgium. While admittedly this is my personal bias, I have done extensive research.

Hmm...there is an awful lot that isn't on that chart. Stone, Bells, DFH, Cigar City, Laugunitas, Rogue, Oskar Blues, and Brooklyn Brewery just to name a few - and thats not even considering the huge number of strictly local breweries (all the ones listed above have some degree of national distribution). I imagine the situation in England is probably pretty similar, espesially if their homebrew laws are similar to ours.
 
2012-07-12 12:22:02 PM
I suppose he's just playing to the political peanut gallery by thumping the barrel for British Beer(TM), but everybody knows that traditional English beer is like an English politician: over-watered, over-heated, flat, and with a thicker head on it than is strictly necessary or good.

In Canada, the two biggest brewers are now owned by a Belgian and a Brazilian brewing giant, while the third, the old and famous (John) Molsen's is now hypenated with (Adolf H.) Coors, the infamously right-wing American company, which itself is foreign-owned, IIRC. In other words, if it is not micro-brewed, it's part of the International Brewish Cartel. It's all a giant conspiracy to charge people to drink their own p***.

I don't mind softish cider in small quantities but hard cider is for stupid teenagers, Chavs and Chavettes.

Have you tried Calvados? That's the kind of extra hard stuff you have to throw back over your tongue in one quick gulp. You taste it later, if ever. Fiery stuff. Had some in Normandy IIRC. It's native to Normandy, like many of my ancestors. It's for serious non-drinkers only, namely those who want to get very drunk, very fast, without the time and trouble of drinking.

It may be unpatriotic for an Old Norman like to me to say so, but Calvados is everything I don't like about alcohol. I prefer sipping whisky, especially Scotch, or Armagnac, Balzac, Bergerac, Cognac, Frontenac, Hacky-sac, Tadoussac, etc. Anything that has colour, taste, and can be nursed for a hour or two.

In Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld they have Retro-wine. You get the hangover first, then you drink the wine, then you have to be very, very careful to plant the vines and make the wine, or else you are involved in horrible paradox. It's all due to the grapes being grown in fields with high levels of background magic from Wizard duels fought thousands of years earlier. They also have Klatchian coffee which can knock you out of a hangover and into the terrible monstrous lucidity on the other side of drunkeness. Not the lucidity that comes with drink--the lucidity that clears away all illusions, lies and misapprehensions--the lucidity that only Death, superior sorts of gods, and some other non-humans ever experience.

Heinekin is probably a good choice for the Olympics. It is not an acquired taste, it appeals to the kind of hipsterish douchebaggy people who might pay to watch some obscure national sport such as Lacrosse (Canada), escrimme, or Court Tennis, or women's basketball. In other words, people who care about the Olympics and who don't leave town every four years to hole up in a place with no radio, TV, WiFi or telephone.

I'm a resident of Ottawa. The only sport we care about is politics. It's the one that matters. London is a Great City (despite being the nation's capital) and they may care about things that Ottawan, Washingtonians or Brazilia City-folk don't even notice when they come to town. But as far as I am concerned, the Olympics is just a few weeks of bad television scheduling, which causes all of my favourite TV shows to flee to the web where it may not be easy to watch them because of crap download speeds and copyright BS.
