All beer tastes like urine. :cry: I does not like beer. I *WISH* I liked beer, it's a nice social thing.

I'm not a beer fan either. I can drink it, but only if there's nothing else.

I know that's very un-Australian of me.

So, the Nether Nether Lands are the nirvana of beer? How, now, dost thou support this boastery?

I was gonna mention Ben Franklin's t-shirt worthy quote about how beer proves God loves us, but upon further investigation, it seems the t-shirts are not entirely accurate. Turns out he said

"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy. The miracle in question was only performed to hasten the operation, under circumstances of present necessity, which required it."

He also said "To confirm still more your piety and gratitude to Divine Providence, reflect upon the situation which it has given to the elbow. You see in animals, who are intended to drink the waters that flow upon the earth, that if they have long legs, they have also a long neck, so that they can get at their drink without kneeling down. But man, who was destined to drink wine, must be able to raise the glass to his mouth. If the elbow had been placed nearer the hand, the part in advance would have been too short to bring the glass up to the mouth; and if it had been placed nearer the shoulder, (as in Figure 4) that part would have been so long that it would have carried the wine far beyond the mouth. But by the actual situation, (represented in Figure 5), we are enabled to drink at our ease, the glass going exactly to the mouth. Let us, then, with glass in hand, adore this benevolent wisdom; -- let us adore and drink!"

I like beer way too much. It's wine that is piss to me. I wish I liked it, so that I could understand why some swoon with pleasure when tasting a 'good' vintage.

Clam juice isn't for dinking, it's used to flavor other foods, like scampi sauce or Clamato Juice™ which I quite like. I actually contrived an original cocktail with that stuff and vodka: the Bloody Mariner. :grin:

I, too, wish to visit Oz. But I want to cruise there; all day in commercial jets would be teh sux.

Tomkeen doth speaketh the truth.

Well. Except it's Belgium, not the Netherlands.

Oh and Belgium seems to be the only country that does vocal trance right, too. Must be the beer.

The Belgians make great beer. You can get any Belgian beer here in Holland. But you cannot get all the Dutch beers in Belgium. That's what makes Pays-Bas nirvana. We also have the best German beer, Czech beer etc.

Besides, wouldn't it be "Beer Valhalla"? :grin:

But what of English beer? When I visited, I loved the bitters.

I also loved the brit attitude towards beer and tippling in general. I was there on biz and the plant I visited (in Wrexham*) had a 'club' located on the company grounds. For very little dosh the employees could become members of this club & eat very good lunches & suppers there. But what amazed me was the fact that, not only was this club mostly subsidized by the company, but it was really a pub. No one thought anything of the workers popping in there for a quick pint (or two or three) at any time during the work day. Can you imaginge trying that in Peoria?

proper dutch beers are nice, don't buy then in the UK though, or you'll get a bottle of piss that was brewed under license.
