It's probably just swill like Stella or Boddy's. It's interesting to see how international beer reputations have inverted. And that's no fault of the rest of the world, it's simply that America has really done a great job at getting so much better at making it.

Since this is Fark, I clearly did not read the article. What kind of beer are we talking about? I need to know that before I decide whether or not to cry.

No, subby, there's no point crying over spilled milk. You're allowed to cry over spilled beer, it's a farking tragedy!

We can but hope it was industrially produced swill like that and not something decent from the nearby Butt's brewery...

And just by the way - yes the US has got a lot better at making it, but Stella and Boddingtons are a *loooooong* way from the UK's best beer. Much like the US, most of it doesn't travel very far. Unlike the US that's because British beer is 'live' and has a limited shelf-life, and doesn't respond well to being moved around very much. We nearly had a lager monoculture for a while in the 1980s, but for hundreds of years before then (and ever since) the UK has had a diverse and thriving local brewing industry.

Settle down, raise a family, join the PTA, buy some sensible shoes and a Chevrolet
Then party 'til you're broke and they drive you away.

It doesn't matter. You've probably never heard of it anyway.

:P

"A police spokesman said the barrels were "all over the road" and the road closure had caused a one-mile tailback. "

And a crapload of wasted witnesses.

"Beer barrels were left strewn across a major road after the lorry carrying them collided with another."
"He added officers were investigating the cause of the crash."


Could take years to solve. Or barrels anyway.

You've got better at making it.  But you're not the reigning beer-making champs or anything.  Don't go sucking each others dicks just yet.

Article says beer barrels. Nothing about them being full. (At least not by the time the police arrived)

So we must conclude that no beer was lost in the crash and can all sleep soundly in our beds uninterrupted by terrible nightmares of delicious beer flowing away into the gutter.

Well, that was unexpected.

(LOUD SFX)

nOOOObody expects the Travel Agency sketch!  Our cheif weapon is surprise, susprise and droning on and on in a monotone voice about the bolor supplement and being herded into endless Hotel Miramars and Bellvueses and Bontinentales with their modern international luxury roomettes and draught Red Barrel and swimming pools full of fat German businessmen pretending they're acrobats forming pyramids and frightening the children and barging into queues and if you're not at your table spot on seven you miss the bowl of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, the first item on the menu of International Cuisine, and every Thursday night the hotel has a bloody cabaret in the bar, featuring a tiny emaciated dago with nine-inch hips and some bloated fat tart with her hair brylcreemed down and a big arse presenting Flamenco for Foreigners.  And then some adenoidal typists from Birmingham with flabby white legs and diarrhoea trying to pick up hairy bandy-legged wop waiters called Manuel and once a week there's an excursion to the local Roman Ruins to buy cherryade and melted ice cream and bleeding Watney's Red Barrel and one evening you visit the so called typical restaurant with local colour and atmosphere and you sit next to a party from Rhyl who keep singing 'Torremolinos, torremolinos' and complaining about the food - 'It's so greasy here, isn't it?' - and you get cornered by some drunken greengrocer from Luton with an Instamatic camera and Dr. Scholl sandals and last Tuesday's Daily Express and he drones on and on and on about how Mr. Smith should be running this country and how many languages Enoch Powell can speak and then he throws up over the Cuba Libres....

There's no more time for crying over spilled milk,
Now it's time for crying in your beer.
