    Although Newcastele is clear bottled too I do like it.

    For my mexican beer dollar I prefer Tecate or Dos Equis

    Wikipedia says it's available in England, but over half of the annual production gets shipped to the US, where it's the #1 imported beer.

    In Newcastle, the beer is often called 'Dog' (or simply 'Broon'). The 'Dog' name comes from the euphemism "I'm going to walk the dog" or "I'm going to see a man about a dog" - meaning "I'm going to the pub"

    I've heard that it's because of it being rice based but I don't know if that has any basis in fact. Maybe I should drink a bunch of Kirin to find out.

    Beer is sort of the "odd man out" in research, perhaps because it's long been considered a blue-collar drink and perhaps not a lot of research scientists drank the stuff anyway. The potential for a beer to produce a hangover might indeed have more to do with the preservatives and adjunct chemistry used to make the stuff than the alcohol content itself. Carbonation also speeds alcohol absorption, which fuels the ability of beer, champagne and drinks blended with carbonated mixers to produce hangovers. Complicating the issue further still, each individual has a different rate at which their body metabolizes congeners. This is why (perhaps) some people get a classic "Budweiser headache" (even after one beer), and others aren't affected at all by the swill.

    I saved the bottle from the first beer he ever bought me, called Delirium tremons. It has pigs on it, it's very cute, and stands as a strong (8.5%!) testament to our love.

    Anywho.

    Second mistaken beer birthplace of the thread: I thought Yeungling was an upstate New York beer. I used to work up there in the summers and people drink it like crazy there; I guess I just assumed that's where it came from. It's semi-commonplace in New York City too -- not REALLY common, but not at all hard to find if you want it.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    As far as the English go, I noticed that my wife's blue collar cousins prefer Budweiser or Corona or Stella Artois. Unfortunate considering the wonderful pints available on tap at many English Pubs.

    That's actually what I was thinking about as opposed to Dos Equis.

    I used to work in a mexican restaurant and we drank quite a few of those after work.

    I partied with them guys once. All they ever did was go on and on about this hottie named Snow White.

    Re: Samuel Adams: World of Beer

    When I lived in Spain quality beer was a hard thing to come by. They're hung up on their wine I guess (you can't drink the water). They had Cruz Campo and San Miquel. Down right nasty stuff. You wanted to put a gun to your head the next day. They had a couple American beers like Budweiser and Miller, but they used formaldehyde as a preservative in it. So if you died from a drinking binge they didn't have to do an autopsy to presevere you.

    We did find Skol at numerous inns and taverns. Looking at our choices then, it was premium.

    The best beer ever








    St Paulie Girl is another beer that I didn't care much for.
