Good luck, we're all counting on you.

¡Ay caramba!

Yeah, but don't they import a lot of Italian and Spanish beer?

Eww. Yeah, I see why it's a crisis.
 
2014-08-17 03:06:52 PM  
I'll put up with a lot as long as I got beer
 
2014-08-17 03:24:00 PM  
Yeah a monopoly by the island's "main brewery" and insanely marked up imports is a sign of a dictatorship all right.

But not what subby had in mind.

I'd like to visit Cuba.
 
2014-08-17 03:51:35 PM  
For a minute there I thought subby was a Teabagger..

I got Guinness stockpiled at my place. Party time.

So this was Obummer's long game. We'll liberate Cuba with our fine Domestic beer. Crafty bastard ain't he?

You'd kindof think the cubans would be used to 3/4 of those by now...
 
2014-08-17 06:31:43 PM  
Well,  they make rum there too don't they?

As long as the place isn't completely dry it won't be burned to the ground,  maybe.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Cuba if the Castros ever die. You'd hate to see it be corporatized and Disneyfied, but the 1950s time warp is obviously not sustainable. Would love to check it out.

They'll be waterboarding Cubans with it soon enough with their stockpile at Guantanamo bay

In communist countries, people line up to get beer. In capitalist countries, beer lines up for the people.

^^^This^^^

How is this different from any other time in the past 55 years in Cuba?
 
2014-08-17 07:18:37 PM  
Communism is all fun and games, until the booze runs dry. :-(

Ice is probably hard to come by tho...

Hey, beer will get you through times of tyranny better that tyrants will get you through times of no beer.
 
2014-08-17 07:57:42 PM  
Oh your talking about Cuba......I didn't think we were out of beer.
 
2014-08-17 08:13:49 PM  
I was there in 1993. At the Hotel Nacional, I asked for the finest beer they had. They brought me Bud Light in a can, no lie.

Spare Me: In communist countries, people line up to get beer. In capitalist countries, beer lines up for the people.


I live in Ontario, which is not technically communist. I still have to line up in a dirty, corrugated sheet-metal shack in a parking lot and ask the surly, heavy-set middle aged woman behind the counter for my beer.

/Bonus features: the dirty, corrugated sheet-metal shack is part of a monopoly jointly owned by foreign multinationals. It's like the worst of communism and capitalism combined!

Ow! That was my feelings!: It will be interesting to see what happens in Cuba if the Castros ever die. You'd hate to see it be corporatized and Disneyfied, but the 1950s time warp is obviously not sustainable. Would love to check it out.


Ah, here's the new Packard we've been hearing so much about!

Don't be stupid, we've got plenty of beer.

Bucanero makes four brands of beer: Bucanero, Cristal, Cacique and Mayabe

I have a beer ...  make it Maybe.

I was thinking a Teabagger hijacked a mic at an arena or something.

Reminds me of a story someone on Fark once told about going to a bar in Japan, and ordering a beer off the import menu, one he'd never heard of before: Mirror. What they brought out:

The best part about Cuba was being able to go the gas station, put a cuc in the machine, and get a cold Buccanero at 8 in the morning.

I'll never get over my Mucho Grande sized Latte.

"Now in the summer more than ever, you go to look for a cold beer at this moment when you needed it the most, and you can't find any," said an agonizing islander interviewed on local TV."

So I guess a glass of cool water is unavailable on a hot day in Cuba?
 
2014-08-17 11:28:52 PM  
It would be hilarious, and possible, if the lack of beer was what finally took down the Castro brothers.

Beer is the only way I've been able to put up with Obama.

To be honest, yes, just a little bit.

Oh yes.  Though I thought the claim about the beer was a tinfoil hat fantasy just like the first three...

How about to its original destination?
