Thanks.

I missed the previous stuff, but now I know and won't die wondering.

I'll get back on my meds now. (Currently James Squire Original Amber Ale. http://www.tastebeer.com.au/beer/116 ) :D

Do you astonish people with your charm because you are so charming, or because people are astonished that you have any charm? :D

So much better than mainstream beers, with their silly advertising that relies on things other than the beer to promote the product, like the Bud Ice penguin.

There's enough in one of those chunks of meat to feed a small village.

What do your butchers use to cut up a beast? Chainsaws?

How about cutting the meat into sizes that people can actually put on their plates? :D

Or do you have really big plates in Argentina?

Maybe that's why you called your big river after a plate? :D

Yummmmm!

I like Greek lamb best, and best of all the crunchy bits on the outside of the spit roast meat.

Oddly enough, the Asian bloke running the Greek charcoal grill I went to a couple of weeks ago couldn't understand my simple request for the crunchy bits.

Even the Greeks who used to run the place could understand that!

Bud is terrible - well - maybe marginally acceptable in a pinch. :)

But it's flavorless pap filled with preservatives that gives the penguins bad headaches...

If I drink cheaper mainstream US beers that advertise, Michelob is okay, and a Pennsylvania beer call Yuengling isn't bad either...

I don't know how to say this politely, so I won't.

To the Australian palate, there's no mainstream American beer which qualifies as a beer, even judged against our ordinary mainstream beers. Most of the American beers are struggling to qualify as lemonade by our standards, on sweetness alone. Beer is meant to be bitter.

But I'm sure that America has some very good beers which, like so much else in America, represent the diversity of the nation and its people and, like so much else about America, is overlooked by the rest of the world in regarding America as some sort of monoculture incapable of producing anything but whatever prejudicial view the rest of the world has about America.

There's no mainstream American beer I regard as anything more that flavored, alcoholic seltzer.:D I think Mich is a bit better, but still too light on flavor for me.

Oh, and I know. I had REAL Aussie beer such as Coopers and something called "The Razor's Edge" (featuring a shark squaring off against an alligator on the label - sadly, I can no longer find an info. on this wondrous brew :( ) In any case, I recall reading an interview, like 20-years ago, AC/DC's Angus Young or Brian Johnson essentially stating the same thing...

I've been preferring Euro imports or "craft brews" since college, if not high school.


But I'm sure that America has some very good beers which, like so much else in America, represent the diversity of the nation and its people and, like so much else about America, is overlooked by the rest of the world in regarding America as some sort of monoculture incapable of producing anything but whatever prejudicial view the rest of the world has about America.

Well, (and I'm gonna start a thread about this!), unfortunately it is said that WWII ruined American brewing, which once truly had a collection of diverse localized beers. Two major things happened, one was refrigeration coupled with advertising, began to cause the blight of watered down, nat'l beers without character nor real flavor.

World War II also comes into play - as it forced brewers to lighten and thin out the beers due to an unavailability of grain as the war effort absorbed the American breadbasket. The public's' palates eventually grew used to this, and it was also cheaper to brew beer in this way - so, henceforth, US beers tended suck on whole..

But in the late 1980s, with the rise of "Sam Adams" beer, Jim Koch gathered the recipe his grandfather had used in the 19th century and began to sell small batches of what was little more than a novelty home-brew. But the stuff caught on and became sort of a "boutique" higher quality beer. And then came the "craft brewery revolution," in which smaller beer companies that found a niche market selling higher quality, old style beer, at a premium price. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the basic "Boston Lager," but Sam Adams makes some really great "seasonal brews" which are quite good. Of course, if people had just bought more of some of the old local beers before their local city breweries went under for the likes of Budweiser (-pffftttt!), we wouldn't have to pay more for a decent beer...

Sierra Nevada is a personal favorite...

Coopers red label is best, but you need to roll the bottle to spread the sediment before drinking. In my top 20 beers. http://www.coopers.com.au/beer.php?id=127&pid=1

I think you might be a bit adventurous in relying on Angus Young as a source. He'd be doing well to remember what he had for breakfast today, assuming he had it, or had grasped the elusive concept of 'today'.:mrgreen:

Quote from their site, "This truly old fashioned soda has the rich, creamy flavor that only comes from using pure Wisconsin honey direct from the combs. Our extracts are prepared at the brewery in a hand-made, gas-fired brew kettle, by combining honey, pure vanilla and a host of aromatic botanicals. The dark, honeyed brew will build a delicious, frothy head when properly poured into a frosted mug."
They dont say what exactly is in it, but probably has mostly traditional extracts in it.

The Ginger Ale is not Alcoholic either, just a soft drink. "Our ginger ale is a sophisticated soda, pale in color and reminiscent of a light, sparkling chardonnay. Its complex flavor is very dry on the palate, combining the bite of ginger ale with a surprising hint of oak. A truly unique taste experience. Nothing like the ginger ale you are used to!"
In the old days, soft drinks were primarily Herbal suppliments, containing things that kept a body in good order, aiding day to day living. That is why, (at least in America,) the "soda fountain" was usually located in the local Pharmacy. (Chemist's shop) They were very good, and medicinal drinks. as time went on, Food chemists developed artificial flavors, that could mimic the taste, but not the medicinal qualities of the herbs, and just added sugar to take up the slack. (in the later1800's cocain was also a popular additive,,,) Then soft drinks pretty much turned into junk food.
