Many Asian beers are better too. Tsingtao, Kingfisher, Singha, Chang and Kirin Ichiban are all tastier.

asian beers are bland and watery, much like corona's.

that said, im sure there arent too many outside of australia that would be fond of the local aussie beers.

dont mind the zywiec and recently bought brok for a change.

That's not true laddie. I've tried VB and many microbrews from OZ. I lived with Aussies for over a year. They had some great stuff, I forgot the names.

I like the crispness of the Asian beers that I tried. Tiger is good too.

vb is your stock standard lowest rung beer, along with carlton draught. there are plenty of microbrewers as well that are getting into ales and pale ales.

yeah, the asian brews in oz are usually $3-$5 per beer more than a local and not close in taste. i have tried a few and i always come away thinking i have had a flavoured water.

Kirin Ichiban better then Zywiec? blasphemy..

Flavoured water is fine once in a while. I've heard that the microbrewers there are going from strength to strength.

You must admit, for the average Aussie, VB is better than Castlemaine XXXX and Fosters.

McEwans does a great pale ale in Scotland.

The Zywiec in Zywiec is legendary, especially served ice cold on a warm day as I had it. What topped it off was sitting at a lovely wooden table overlooking a cracking lake there. The pension is called MEGA and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Around $1.60 I think.

$1.60 is really cheap. Over here you can pay anywhere from $2.50 to $5 or more for a pint and up from there for imports at a swanky place. I once paid $8 for a pint!

It’s all the damn taxes that drive up the cost.

Some places sneak you with less than a pint. They serve in glasses which look like traditional pints but the measurement is really 14 oz. rather than 16. That’s one less pull! Sneaky jerks.

i prefer coopers pale ale myself but dont mind the odd vb/carlton draught for a changeup.

xxxx is pants....and not sure if you're familiar with crown lager, but fosters is just that rebranded for overseas.

is this in the us?

in australia we would pay $8 for a pint of local stuff and rising to $11-12 for the boutique asian/european beers.

but we also have the glorious idea of jugs, just over a litre at around $13.

Wow, beer is expensive down under!

is this in the us?

Yes, in the US. I guess the average for a pint of domestic at a local pub would be $3-$3.50, more in the city. Local micro brews are as expensive or more than imports.

Can get a 30 pack case of 12oz. domestic for $25.

yeah, when i was in scotland between 2000 and 2002 i was paying 2.50 pound for a pint of stella which when converted was around $7AUD.

but you gotta do the conversion, at the moment $1US = $0.66AUD. so prices are pretty comparable.

we can get 24 stubbies (375ml) for around $40AUD which works to about $24US.

Crown lager, nah, haven't heard of it. Fosters is not bad really

fosters as you scots would say is pants.

would you believe no one buys fosters in australia...my canadian mate bought a pint in an aussie bar in edinburgh and drank half of it and left it. not even i could bring myself to drink the "man down".

I always found it to be pretty nice. I don't believe in conditioning myself not to like something when I actually like it.

Pants, LOL. Or gash :)
King Sobieski 2 | 716  
14 Mar 2009 /  #48
no conditioning, just dont like the taste. not fond of its cousin crown either.

if you ever get the chance, try coopers or james boags strong arm bitter, good beers.
Seanus 15 | 19,706

I've heard of Coopers but not James Boags. So, it isn't only the bogans that drink Boags? ;)

hahahahahaha....bogans.

no, boags is a more refined beer from the apple isle (tasmania).

the first export to the mainland was james boags, a more lager oriented beer.

now they have delved into the ordinary market with boags draught.

google/you tube it, they may have some of their advertising around somewhere.

Aha, the Hobart boys putting something together.

Have you tried Żubr beer in Poland, KS?
King Sobieski 2 | 716  
14 Mar 2009 /  #52
no, only zwiecw and brok.

polish beers arent that popular in australia.

but i nowadays would prefer to support the homeland buying the above over aussie beers, especially when they are 500ml @ 5.7%.
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Duzy Żubr are 660ml's at 6.0%. I had 2 last night, enough for an old man like me ;) Probably equivalent to 3 pints of British lager.
King Sobieski 2 | 716  
14 Mar 2009 /  #54
know the feeling...can knock 6 locals off pretty easily...3-4 broks/zwiecw and im toast.

must be the ole man in us.

dobranoc.

The problem with Polish beer is not that it's hard to drink, but if you forget to drink water before bed, you end up feeling terribly hungover in the morning. This happened to me yesterday...after a litre of Tyskie :(

Anyway, beer prices are quite fine in Poznań. 7zl is the most you'll pay in any ordinary place or cafe for the usual Lech/Tyskie/Warka. Many places will be cheaper - as low as 4zl on certain nights. But usually 5.5zl is the going rate in an ordinary pub.

7zl

thats not too bad, i paid 10.5zl in krakow last year in the rynek. last weekend in doncaster it was my round so i ordered four bottles of beer (becks) £12.80, hence the real reason why pubs are shutting down over here, f-all to do with the smoking ban.
Seanus 15 | 19,706

I'd pay 4 quid tops for 4 bottles of Becks. Over 3 quid each for a bottle is scandalous.

I drink Żubr - cause I'm a local patriot
Then I drink Budweiser - cause I need some more water during a training ;-]
And after that I drink Grolsch cause I really like it

cheers!

Grolsch is a top beer, one of the best out there.
