25 year old Laphroaig but at nearly £70 a bottle, I usually drink the 10yo.
When I'm down the Pub, then a decent real ale is my preference.

Am currently quaffing a 2004 Les Jamelles Syrah, EUR7.50 a bottle. Exquisite.

Beer is good too, as is good vodka, jenever, whisky (Balvenie, Jura, Glenmorangie), cognac...

It's interesting that a German (Hans Lutz) would pick a Dutch beer as his favourite! zeg tegen je opa dat mijn oma haar fiets terug wil!

I don't drink much anymore (maybe a beer or two or a glass of wine per year). Mostly just drink coffee, soda (no preference), juice or water.

For beer, I used to like Miller Genuine Draft, but the various Dutch beer I've tried was very good. (I've tried many European brands as well as some Mexican, Australian, Asian and even African).

For wine, used to like Italian: Chianti (red) and California: Ernest & Julio Gallo (white), but also liked French Bordeaux and Rhone wines.

Never really liked hard liquor, but tolerated vodka or tequila.

I used to part own an Irish mare ( with an ex potential mrs brew, a half chinese all psyco WPC ) which was stabled near Alcar, on a stud farm owned by an ex Picadilly Cowboy who had a poteen still permanently on the bubble. I had more than a few lost weekends and developed an enduring hatred for the Uni sqdn who's chipmunks would low fly the stables during times of cronic alcohol related brain trauma.

If I had to describe the sensation of a poteen fuled hangover it would be similar to having your head cut open with a blunt chain saw,your brain removed and replaced with a warm vibrating woolen sock half filled with gravel and then having your skull repaired with a poor quality glue so it feels like it is slowly coming apart.

According to the poll, well it depends the occasion don't you think?

If I am on the last hours of light, near the coast with 90 or 95ºF, I think the best is a cold beer with some salty peanuts, to share with friends!

If I am on a formal party, for instance in a wedding, I would prefer a good red wine to drink with some barbacue to eat possibly.

If I am eating with a couple of friends, I would prefer a fresh coke or pepsi...

There are several serving/ex members of the British Armed Forces on here mate, I will guarantee now that everyone of them has had at least one 'top shelf' at some point, as well as every other stupid combination of drink that squaddies will try (my personal favourite was topping up a bottle of red wine with white wine, Stella (lager) and vodka and red bull on out welcome home party from Iraq).

LargeBrew
01-26-2006, 08:04 PM
Doing the top shelf would involve a shot of every availible alcaholic drink mixed together in one glass and downed in one and is a great tradition in the British military as is vomiting, If Marines or Paras are involved there would also be nakedness and frotage.

There would also be any number of bizzare drink combinations, my particular favorite was a leccy (electric) cabbage which consisted of a pint of snake bite ( half lager half cider ) topped up with a double blue Bols and a large dash of night nurse ( cold remedy). A supprisingly tasty and expensive mix not for the faint hearted, after which hi jinks would ensue.

I remember once being involved in a heated debate over etiquette within the Naffi, which should come first top shelf or dance of the flaming arseholes, I favored top shelf second but any views on the subject would be welcome.

I am in agreement with you, the top shelf should be the reward for completing the dance without second degree burns or burning the bar down.

The correct drink before commencing the dance should be a pint of Wifebeater, downed in 8 seconds or less.

No, no, no Mr Cuts - the rules have been ammended. The Army is an equal opportunities employer and girls are also allowed to set fire to their own arses, therefore the drinking limit before it has been adapted to suit the female element. Clearly the male limit should still be around the 5 second mark (5.5 seconds for the over 30s) while females get the afformentioned 8 seconds. I believe JSP1664 (Drinking in the British Armed Forces, an Equal Opporunities Guide) covers all of these new EO rules.

That's a problem the American society faces. Here's my view on it:

Since the drink is held so far out of reach from teenagers, they want it much more, and will do nigh anything to get it. In order to be cool in America, you have to drink alcohol.

That's not how it works at my house. I often get champagne on special occasions (i.e. birthdays, Christmas, New Years, etc...). It doesn't stop at champagne either, as long as it isn't a school night, I (and my 12 year old brother) can have a beer, tequila, rum or whatever. I've only been drunk once, and that was with permission ;).

It's also the same in Mexico. Whenever we go to eat, the waiters always ask my mom if I'm old enough to have a drink, and she of course says yes (I never really drink much though, not an alcoholic ;) ).

Does anyone find it odd that the age for buying alcohol is 21. While one could buy tabacco, buy guns and ammo, drive a car, fly an airplane, and enlist to fight (and possibley die) for one's country at the age of 18, but yet you cannot legally buy a bottle of port for Christmas :\

I've never been a beer snob, if I wanted to argue the relitive merits of Wibbles crotch rot over scrutocks old deridgable I would have grown a straggly beard and become an art teacher. I would state a prefference to bottles over cans but as long as it is at least 5% I can live with cans.

I can understand that some people like to go out for a few drinks and some pleasant conversation, I totally understand and suppot their life style choice, I infact subscribe to that very ethos when drinking within the frame work of extended family or work related socialisation.

There are times however when it is entirly appropriate to ascribe to a more robust mind set, this would be when taking alcoholic refreshment with my father ( ex Bty Sgt Maj RA , close friends and especially ex oppo's. On these occassions the goal wil be to get completly off my tit's, talk shite and engage in unseamly behaviour and when particularly with the former peer group indulge in an alcohol related bezzering session.

I can understand SS Tigers point that the age limit in the UK is high in comparison to other European countries however you have to factor in the bad example set to the younger generation by people like me and possibly some other UK members on this site. Beer is a grown ups thing and we don't want be surrounded by children( anyone under 21 excluding the goth hottie barmaid in the Swan who can surround me any time) after all we get enough of that at home.

I must agree with Hanz Lutz, having purchased 6, 66cl bottles of Bavaria from a discount store ( Home and Bargin ) on my way home from work for the princely sum of £ 5. 94 I must concur that it is a most agreeable beer, I wish I had bought more as I am just finishing number 6 so on to my second point of the evening/morning.

PTL SGT BAKER you asked what a wha is ( or for us oldies a wha = a good lad ). A wah is the request of an obvious answer by verbal request in the hope of recieving the obvious answer. For instance, imagine it is at hight of the cold war and you are twixt posting from a place where you have been shot at by both sides on an almost daily basis in an on going secterian dispute and are due shortly to man the bastions of freedome against the red horde. Your CO ( though you disagree ) thinks that it would be a good idea to engage in some extra preperation ie, War games.

You are a member of the green army and have been issued with a green arm band ( arm bands cotton green) to denote your parcipitation and will be play fighting the red army. Your brand new ( fresh from the box ) 2nd Lt is giving the final briefing to the assembled mass of Geen Army which consits of half hour of blah blah red scalfes blah blah any questions?. An annonmus voice pipes up from the asembled throng

Voice, Sir what colour arm bands will the red army be wearing.

Shiney new 2nd Lt, er well er the red army will be wearing red arm bands.

I got some new receipes for you :)

1. "U-boot".
We need:
- 1 glass of beer (0,5 l),
- 0,25 ml glass of vodka.

Pour the glass with beer.
Then drop the glass with vodka inside the glass with beer.
When it gets to the bottom, it is ready to drink. ;)
The effect is awesome. ;)

2. "Jeager-bomb".
We need:
- 1 glass of beer (0,5 l) - filled with 2/3 with beer,
- one energy drink (Red Bull or similiar),
- 0,25 ml glass filled with jeagermeister.
Pour the big glass with beer (max. 2/3) and then fill it with energy drink.
Then drop inside the glass with 0,25 ml of jeagermeister.
Now, just drink it!

I don't feel responsible for all you do after getting few of these shots. ;)

1. Oz is in a close proximity to New Zealand. NZ is the only country in the world in which distilling at home is legal...
So we have all "technology".
The best stuff is "Express" ... 60% alcohol vodka filtered through charcoal. Taste like Absolut, but cost about $3/ liter.

If you are not in mind to do it yourselves, Ozzie wine is an option.
Stupid fellows go to the bottle shops... I have a better idea. On Line wine auctions...
Two weeks before Xmas I decided to stock more and bought a bargains as:

6 Magnums, (1.5 litres) of 2002 Shiraz for $9.00 (yes, nine aussie dollars...)
For additional $10, stuff was delivered to my door.
I live in a paradise...

12 bottles of 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon $58.

Far from my times of drinking 96% ethanol from MIG-21 defrosting tanks, during my army years in commie Poland...

Cheers,

Lancer44

Yes 96% ethanol in army what's a wonderful thing :)
Mix it with water 1:2 and you will get the excellent drink.
Without ill-head and poisoning.
Our major Commander of battery recived from Technical part one littre of medical spirit every month for the cleaning of radar-displays and surfaces of equpment.
This littre dissapered for the two-three days ;)
I remember one anecdotes from the my armies time.

Young luetenant clear the display by the rag using bottle with spirit.
Captain come up to him:
-What are you doing luetenant?
-Comrade captain i clear the display according the technical instruction by the thin layer of spirit.
Captain take the bottle, fill the glass of spirit, drink it than breather to the display. It cover by mist .
-That's wnat mean "the thin layer of spirit" idiot.

:)

Now i drink mostly vodka.

hm, I adore this one here. "Störtebecker Hanse Porter". it is a dark beer, similar to ale, with a slight taste of caramel. in germany you would be called a pervert if you drink this, because normally beer must consist of only some sheer ingredients and must not contain any form of additions like sugar or flavoured substances. anyway I like it very much.

KLAUS STÖRTEBECKER (the name of that beer, made in Stralsund, east-cost of germany) was a famous german pirate in the 14th century, his name came obvisously from the word "stürz den becher", because he was able do drink 4 liters of beer with one attempt - a typical german ;).

later he was cought and beheaded. the legend says, that all his crewmembers had to stand in a row side by side. in that moment when he lost his head, he should run (dying without head) along his men and all he passed did not have to suffer the same death for piracy of the high seas. maybe all stupid legend, but interesting anyway and a tasty beer.

cheers, or PROST!

well, literature says something about 11 men he "saved", but in the end all 73 pirates were killed though. another legend tells that the hangman threw a wooden bar into the feet of störtebecker, so he fell down. if not done so, he maybe could have saved (first) some more. I am not sure if a human can even walk some seconds without head, but the whole story sounds scary. fact is, that störtebecker really lived.

Aaaaahhh ... the beer that is selled here everywhere and makes my heart bleed!!

I don´t know if i should vote for soda or beer - well i absolutely love Franziskaner and Paulaner Weißbier, but ... well i think when i vote for soda it´s more handy (you can mix it with beer :D ) - e.g. there was something called 7up - tastes like sprite, but i much more less expensive here :rolleyes: ... and is Tonic Water also a soda? That tastes also very good - and you can mix it with many things.

I think the most ridicolous thing i ever mixed was at the "18. years Party" of a friend some years ago ... somewhen in the night a friend and myself searched something to mix it in the beer, and we found some juice in the refrigator ... well ... all i have to say more is: Perhaps the mixing ratio was wrong :mrgreen:

Cheers! Prost! :cool:

If it's at a party with more than a few, it's Miller Lite. But at home and 99% of the time nowadays it's just some kind of diet Pepsi/Coca-Cola. :mrgreen:

in my state, the legal age is 21 yrs. for alcohol, BUT! if you are in a bar, or such type of place with your kids, and they are 17 or more yrs, they may drink along with you though if they become drunk, you the parent are liable for any troubles they may cause.

Howdy,

I had a couple Shiner Bock beers in Luckenbach, Texas during a visit in 1993. Still have one of the bottles as a souvenir. :)

Spoetzl Brewery
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiner_Bock


Known as the "Little brewery in Shiner," the Spoetzl Brewery is an American brewery located in Shiner, Texas that is wholly owned by the Gambrinus Company. The brewery is most well known for producing Shiner Bock, a dark German/Czech-style beer that is now distributed in 41 states.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiner_Bock#Active_beers

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/04/ShinerCurrent.JPG/800px-ShinerCurrent.JPG

Shiner Bock — Shiner's flagship beer. Bock has been brewed since 1913, almost as long as the Spoetzl Brewery has been in business. However, it wasn't until a few decades ago that Shiner began producing Bock year-round. Bock was considered a lent beer, and therefore was only made around that season. Today 80% of the beer made at the Spoetzl Brewery is Bock.
