That is two for and one against.  Pretty good going.

 

In the manbags at dawn, my vote goes for Browny.

You need all the friends you can get now you've moved to Hastings.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Psst, in Denmark rugby union provides Carsberg and Tuborg.  Rugby league games are supplied a real ale bar.

I have been back in Europe for 1 1/2 years now.

 

THe beer in the USA is far better, except they rather irritatingly believe they invented it and as an Englishman, that I was being introduced to IPA, porter and brown ale for the first time.

Oops sorry, I was sure that you were still out in Boston. Actually thinking about it this explains why you keep posting Danish RL stuff on facebook.

 

It all makes sense now.....

Good call on the beer

My experience also

 

I never even saw Budweiser advertised although I'm sure it was and that lots if people were sipping it.

 

I handsome of the best beer I've ever tasted in the states , although I never experienced the attitude you mention.

Going back for some more next month

It is more when you go into the real hard-core beer places.  There are the ones with a genuine love of good beer, and they would be similar ot such places in England.  However, there have also been a lot of people in the USA who would have become ignorant wine snob who have instead become ignorant beer snobs.  It is a curse England is largely free from.

 

I used to be a member of the Institute and Guild of Brewing and have a Doctorate in brewing yeast.  In Europe, I have very rarely mentions this in conversations about beer.  When someone dismisses what I say and explains to me how Russian Imperial stout is from Russia, IPA was a forgotten Indian recipe recreated in the USA and is best brewed with "Belgian" yeast, I suddenly feel the over-powering urge to pull rank.  Such people do report back to the USA that craft beer has now reached the UK and we are also having these styles introduced from the US. 

 

There are also people who just love good beer.

 

The best way to separate such people is to ask if they have had Westvleteren.  The truth is almost certainly no, as there is not much of it.  The Snob will answer yes and tell you it is the best beer they ever had.

Small, independent producers have really improved the reputation of American beer (and American cheese). There's some really nice stuff now.

Thanks bob

To be honest when we were in the states I didn't go looking for good beer.

It was just a question of walking into an interesting looking bar and there it was

In fairness I have had some nice American beers but to date I have never found a half decent American cheese. I always thought that this was a possible gap in the market that some canny European might exploit if he/she could educate the Yanks that cheese does not have to resemble sheets of bendy plastic.

 

I am not entirely surprised as it's such a vast and varied country with so many influences it's very hard to generalise when talking about America. I've not got any trips to the states planned currently but will most likely be going back to California some time later this year so will try and find some good examples of American cheese.
