... In my youth,after 6 pints of Kronenbourg ...
When was that, 1664?
And why are you suporting the French economy while drinking Chirac's favorite beer. Mildly interesting piece of trivia, Chirac's favorite beers before he was elected to the French presidency were Corona and Budweiser. He was advised by his PR
staff to pledge his allegiance to a French beer post election...[8)]
Hehe-very perceptive of you!-i always get a slight pang of guilt drinking '1664',but i'm weak willed and i love it.But in anycase,my alternative would be Becks '1945'so i guess i'm a traitor whatever i do.
My only redemption lies in my previous penchant for Carlsberg Special Brew,which by way of further mild trivial interest was created by the brewer to mark Churhill's visit to Copenhagen i think in 1952.But at 9pct ABV,after the fourth pint (20oz in UK) all cognitive (and motor) functions deteriorate rapidly and even ugly women could consider themselves safe.[^]
And my first ever car was a Renault-oh the shame!
My favorite brews are Belgian, try 13-15% in some of the "Trappistes", in the middle of summer, while people watching at a terrace. Can't get up! Neither literally, nor figuratively! (I seem to remember an "Hardy's Ale" (?) from your country, somewhere around 12%, pretty bottle too!)
Second, Germans. Everyday brew? BitBurger!
Can't put my lips to an Urquell though, but semi-annual Orval purges are the norm.
If you do travel around Kronenbourg / Strasbourg, try an Adelshoffen, local, non pasteurized, does not travel, better than a Kro, as French beer goes anyway. Oh, and Fischer is a good beer from around Strasbourg as well!
Edit: Adelshoffen apparently no longer exists, it was acquired by Heineken and closed down shortly thereafter. Sorry about that mis-information.
