    A Beer Question?

    When I was in England back in 98 (doing the typical Aussie overseas trip) I was drinking mammoth amount's of your lovely homeland lager's/ales and bitter's. Yet when I went to the clubs and pub's/taverns most people were drinking "Red Stripe" (Jamaican) lager.

    Why would the local's be drinking this rubbish, when clearly England has some of the best beer's in the world? :shock:


    And yes, we aussie's are a little bit embarrassed by Fosters Lager.

    Nah, never drunk Red Stripe.

    I normally drink Fosters, Carling, Castlemaine XXXX (hard to find), Budweiser or Saint Miguel.


    And any little stubby bottles I can buy from France, cheap!!

    I think the lager served in Britain is absolute crap (although it doesn't stop me consuming barrowloads of the stuff on a weekend ). I actually think Red Stripe is quite nice.

    You know where you need to go for a good bevvy.... Prague.

    My absolute favouritist place in the whoooooole wide world. The lager is absolutely amazing and costs about the equivalent of 20p for half a litre. Best of the lot is the mighty Staropramen. Beautiful city as well. Ooooh I cannot wait to get back.

    I think the reason for locals drinking the good stuff is due to the fact that all beer from the tap at big clubs and pubs is watered down. When you go to your local you get a good, strong honest Pint!
    When you go to a club you get 2 parts shi#e too one part beer, thats why people buy the bottles/cans!

    Red Stripe's nasty.

    I'm an ale man myself, or provided the lager is made east of France, that too.

    What I hate is when a great foreign beer is made here, like, as if you match Irish Guiness in a scummy London factory...
