should I drink? Becks Vier or Ginger?
Actually, I've also got a lemonade and milk.
in ASDA tonight that wasn't the same as Peetermans.
They used to sell it in my local Londis. £1 for the big 660ml bottles. Five of those before going out. Whooooooo as Ric Flair says.
The taste of shit.
Sounding like you two have already been on the Stellas.
to know it tastes like shit :D
stella tastes good
Its sole redeeming feature is its "marginally stronger than average" alcohol content. The Poles know what they're doing for the over 5%ers, (hello zywiec, tyskie and lech) otherwise (if you want something that tastes nice, and/or that you can drink on a hangover) surely you're taking aim at 1664, heineken, and maybe grolsch and holsten, even red stripe if you're feeling fruity.
Of course if you have the good fortune to move to belgium or germany I understand that they have many well brewed stroooong lagers. But you can't buy them in Hackney off licenses, so they may as well not exist.
'Stella Artois, once best known for its unashamedly upmarket advertising slogan, "reassuringly expensive", has, as a member of the drinks trade phrases it, "done a Burberry"'.
although stella was the first beer i started drinking.
i'm not helping your argument at all.
Girls drink lager too!
I wear dresses and everything.
Although i must confess now I've made my feminist stand, I actually much prefer a nice large glass of white wine.
Straight from the freezer.
It's good for shandy. You should've had Guinness instead. That's a *real* drink.
Shandy isn't good for anything. Guinness is only good in a pie with steak.
Disagree on both points. Shandy is great on a really really hot summer day. And Guinness is great with pretty much anything. Or even as a food substitute! That said, I've got a recipe hanging around somewhere for Guinness pie that I keep meaning to make, if only I could get over the mental block of actually baking a pie and feeling like a middle-aged housewife.
if you do become a middle aged housewife can you make me one? Please!!!!!!
Hell may have to freeze over first, but I wouldn't rule that out either.
And then there's ROAST DINNER PIE. Om nom nom nom nom nom!
But I've really taken to making shandy with ale recently.
What's with all the shandy? Pie making is for the gods though. Keep it up. When you start it that is.
But I was actually a housewife then!
How dare you call me a wufter when you're drinking bloody Becks? You're a Northerner too arencha? I know some Northern monkeys who would never let you live that down!
if that makes me more Northern.
There are plenty of Northern Men who think that drinking Blue WKD is the done thing.
ginger beer thanks
you're only meant to drink that stuff if you're a character in an Enid Blyon book.
from the Secret Seven
for I am going to a hardcore all dayer in the morning.
ie: A bunch of hardcore bands playing 'all day' (well, 2-9)
BEGINNING OF THE END - London based punk featuring members of SUFFER and WHOLE IN THE HEAD
THREAT MANIFESTO - South Wales trio a la HUSKER DU/ASSFACTOR 4
SCREWED UP FLYER - Local KID DYNAMITE/7 SECONDS style sonic assault
THE GOOD WIFE - Local JESUS LIZARD rip-off artists
DEATH AT SEA - LAWRENCE ARMS/LATTERMAN style punk from Romsey
TRACTOR - Slow and heavy in the style of UNSANE, from Bristol
WHOLE IN THE HEAD - Southampton thrash merchants
GORDON GANO'S ARMY - Local pop punk
Anyone who wants to sound like the Lawrence Arms = awesome.
I hear good things.
Strangely, none of the more high profile Southampton hardcore bands like Little Flags, Fair Fight or Our Time Down Here are playing this one.
