The Litany of Beer, From "Goats - The Comic" (shan't link to it since if you browse that site you might see non-pg material)

I must drink beer. Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

beer taste like cow pee (I can only imagine) I cant believe u guys like that awful taste :/

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] July 20 2005 8:03 AM EDT

It is reasonable here to ask, how exactly do you know the taste of bovine urine? And why is that you are sampling that, but don't know what beer actually tastes like?

[Banned]Monty July 20 2005 8:06 AM EDT

It's bitter and awful. :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 20 2005 8:09 AM EDT

Ah... You're talking about Bitter.

Which is different to Ale, Mead, Lager (light or dark), Stout. To name some varieties.

If you're not old enough to sample the wide range just yet ( I feel for you Americans, I really do...), just wait until you can emerse yourself in the vast gulf that is beer.

You should find something to your taste...

InebriatedArsonist July 20 2005 8:16 AM EDT

Ah, bitters. Definitely not a type of beer easy to find in the US. One more thing to miss about England.

AdminG Beee July 20 2005 8:23 AM EDT

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? - I think not.
Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

Of course, if you're under age then you're under age and shouldn't touch the stuff ;)

QBJohnnywas July 20 2005 8:25 AM EDT

If they're underage and not touching the stuff then that means there's more to go around for the rest of us.......

Part-time Barman July 20 2005 8:27 AM EDT

London Pride...Yum.

Quite partial to IPA too

AdminG Beee July 20 2005 8:27 AM EDT

I like the way you're thinking :)

QBJohnnywas July 20 2005 8:32 AM EDT

Actually I don't think beer is the greatest invention. I would award that prize to the humble pint glass, because otherwise we would be stood around in pubs holding barrels and then where would we be?

[T]Vestax July 20 2005 8:46 AM EDT

With larger portions of beer. Duh.

--Captain Obvious, 8:00 AM EDT

Actually I agree with Monty here - that is exactly what American beer is like. Our Canadian beer is OK, but the best is from the UK and Germany ;)

InebriatedArsonist July 20 2005 9:05 AM EDT

Maelstrom, perhaps you should try something other than the mass-marketed swill like Bud, Coors and Miller. There are plenty of fine American beers out there, you just have to look.

Maelstrom July 20 2005 9:10 AM EDT

Yeah, you're right, I was talking about the mass-marketed stuff.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 20 2005 9:16 AM EDT

I can't spell the name, but I can't reccomend the American brewery Gorden-Beirsch enough.

It's where I help my wedding reception (? Evening meal..) out in vegas, and their beers were great!

You could get a half pint sample of the 5 types of beer they brew (Red, Light, Dark and two others..) so you could find out which one you liked best.

I, um, tried them all, somewhat equally...


mchaos July 20 2005 10:32 AM EDT

The real problem with American beer IMO isn't finding the good stuff, it's paying through the nose for it. A half liter of of Bitburger is something like sixty euro cents in Germany, any decent american beer is usually above a buck-a-bottle, and it's only 12 ounces...

I have dabbled in the art of homebrews over the past couple of years, and it's really made me wonder. How did monks many,many years ago stumble upon this complex process.

Beer is bad enough, but as Billy Connelly said, "The guy that first drunk milk, what the hell did he think he was doing ?"
