emetib said the only good american beer is Sam Adams. We all know Guiness is made in Canada. DUH!

Chimay is good cause it is poured into a snifter. Makes me feel really important when I drink out of one of those.

Anyway back to the original post...yes, that is very cool. I saw that on slashdot. A lot of work in my opinion. If you drink real fast it won't get cold.

Well, I will agree with you there... the best AMERICAN beer is Sam Adams. I like it too. But my favorite will always be Heineken. Mostly though, I perfer the beer that the local Irish Pub brews here... especially the red stuff (right between light and dark).

Still.... I've never liked dark beer (like Guiness). Dunno, I just dont feel satisfied by the taste.

Look, if it's draught beer that you are on about, then you are all full of crap.

It's true to say, that if you drink the beer from where it originates, then you are getting the correct taste, texture, flavour, whatever.

"Good old blighty" is famous for trying to make other peoples beer and we end up with piss!.

Heineken, in Amsterdam, is vastly superior to the dish water mainly served up here.

Carlsberg in Copenhagen, is excellent, elsewhere it tastes horrible.

The UK also has "Park Royal" piss (Guiness brewed in West London). It only has a very passing resemblance to that "nectar from the banks of the Lifey" i.e. Guiness brewed in Dublin - now that really is "good shit".

I never tasted any American beer that I could get to like, the original Budweiser (is it Czech, Hungarian or Polish, I forget) is far superior to the insipid US version bleagh!

The same can also be said for Whiskey. Malt Scotch/Irish is marvellous, whereas those blended ones (Johnnie Walker, teachers, famous grouse to name but a few) are foul.

But, IMO, the US has a little "trump card" up it's sleeve with "whiskey" in that I much prefer a bourbon whiskey, to either Scotch or Irish, and yes, Jack Daniels, always seemed to taste so much better when drunk in the US than here!

So maybe the answer is to travel, enjoy the local flavours of wherever, but don't try to relocate them, just enjoy the product at the time and the memory later.

As for the beer cooler device, way way too much hassle, just install one of those small camping cold boxes next to your PC or buy a very long extension cord for those "garden moments".

regards

John

p.s. There's always the bottled originals to fall back on, carlsberg "elephant" beer - brewed in Denmark, yum yum or Heineken brewed/bottled in Amsterdam etc etc etc the list is endless!!!!!

bleah... heineken SUCKS ..
guiness isnt that much better. But if you pour a pint of that, drop a shot glass half-filled with bailey's and the other half with jameson whiskey and chug the whole mix? Now you got yourself a drink.

Oh no bigjohn you are sadly mistaken. The drink evslin speaks of is known as an Irish Carbomb around these parts and they are oh so sweet. Taste like chocolate milk!
