That being said, a Vic Bitter or two can hit the spot.

James Boag's is pretty good stuff - not that I've had a great huge
amount of brews from down under, mind you.

Wow! A connoisseur. Yeah, I quite like a Boags on occasions.

Well, I'll tell you what. The first time (and sadly, the last time) I

ever
had a boags was from a gourmet store (which closed soon after) near my
house. Now, I like it when beers taste "clean"; that is, the underlying
taste behind the alcohol is either nonexistant, or very refreshing. Upon
tasting a Boags, I was struck by how much like pure, clean springwater

that
taste was. I was in heaven.


Yeah, I think the Tassie water has a lot to do with that.

Now of course I can't find it anywhere in the states. Probably for the
best; that lone bottle cost me about $5 USD!


This mob (among others I'm sure) will sell you some and ship it to you,
but you'd better be prepared for some hefty P&H;

Here's the brewers site;

I'm also fond of Banks, from Barbados. A delicious lager.


Haven't heard of that one.

Cheers,


Phil

Ah yes, Banks beer. I remember it well from my two-week vacation in Barbados
many a year ago. Pretty good beer and very reasonably priced. My brothers
and I would go through a case or so a night after scuba diving all day.

Barbados also produces some of the best rum made - Mount Gay.


Amen. MG and Tonic is the quintessential summer drink.

Aw yeah. Mt. Gay sugarcane overproof rum. God what nectar.

I imagine so. I'll check 'em out and if I'm ever up to having one expensive
drink (outside of various brandys and wines) I'll order me a six-pack :-)

A light-tasting lager with a kick about twice as strong as that damn
Elephant beer, or Tsingtao. But it has a very, very light bite to it. More
like a kiss :-)

No scuba diving that I know of in Venezuela...Barbados has decent scuba
diving plus caning if you break the law!

Caught "Bridges at Toko Ri" today on AMC.

Good, good stuff.

"Where do we get men like that?"

Not from your gene pool.


Snort! Yeah, we expect great things to come from Tarver's

genetic
poultry experiments!

He's already got some of his offspring signed up for College,

dontcha
Splaps Boy?

Heh. Tarver slagging me over a Bridges at Toko-Ri quote.

That's
*funny*,
considering he's insulted both Art Kramer and Ed Rasimus, two

people who
have most assuredly been there and done that. As if Tarver

would know
what
kind of man it takes to do the job they've done.

Ah well, thanks for replying to his post; at least I got to see

what
sort of
drivel he spewed...

Ask him about...

...how the WWII Avenger bomber was powered by jet engines
...how pitot tubes are only used on turbine planes
...how mud wasps clog pitot tubes with alarming regularity
...how the pitot tube is actually the P1T0 tube
...how spoilers create negative lift
...how wings on racecars are actually spoilers
...how Budweiser is the best-selling beer in Australia
...how a non-existant section of TWA800 was the problem
...how Kapton is a conductor, not an insulator

how Budweiser is the best-selling beer in Australia

LOL!!!............as if.............

Well, to be fair, Fosters isn't much better.

Sure. But no one here drinks Fosters either. :-)


"Fosters, it's Australian for 'Here, you drink it.'"

That being said, a Vic Bitter or two can hit the spot.


Well, to quote the Fosters company website;

"Victoria Bitter is Australia's favourite beer. Australians enjoy more
than 400 million litres of the top-selling brew each year."

By 20 million men, women and children! Splappy would be hard pressed to
keep up. I guess you could say that VB's popular here.?

Cheers,


Phil

Oh I don't know, Craig. I'm prepared to concede that there may be rums
nearly as good as Bundy. :-)
