How about a fun topic, beer! What kind of beer do you drink while using Linux?

Myself, I like Guinness and Kilkenny, but being Canadian I have to go with something local. Sleeman's http://www.sleeman.com/en/index.htm is the #3 brewer in Canada (after Molson and Labatts) and they make excellent beer.

Guinness, or when that's too expensige, usually Grolsch.

Or at certain establishments, Franziskaner Dunkel Very Happy



(Though at house parties, I usually drink Lucozade & Barcadi. I appear to be the originator of this cocktail)

But if I must drink some form of beer, it will probably be Guinness.

I like English Dark beers, depends on where I am, in Cornwall, where my daughter lives, I drink Sharp's Doom Bar in the Blue Peter in Polperro, usually, although the Early harvest is a nice golden ale, and I am partial to the odd Hobgoblin, and Wadsworths or St Austell beers are quite nice.

In the Midlands, I drink Burton ale, Piddle in the hole, (from the Wyre Piddle bewery) Theakstons, or Holdens.
In France, I usually drink Leffe or Stella (Bock, if I can get it) or 33, Kronenbourg 1664, or Pelforth Brune.

I must admit that these days I drink lager in many pubs, because the other offerings are so poorly looked after, although in a Weatherspoon's I usually drink Spitfire..

I used to drink whatever was cheapest (or on special offer) Carling, Fosters, Carlsberg etc. but recently I discovered dark ale. I'm particular to Black Sheep, Hobgoblin or Newcaslte Brown Ale (obviously, being from the North East and whatnot) but I frequently try out new brands. I'm sort of working my way round the ale section of my local co-op Smile

I have also always had a fancy for McEwans export. I never have been able to get the hang of Guinness though, always tasted like someone had filled an ashtray with water and bottled/canned the results Confused

I don't usually feel the need to drink beer when using Linux, although it sometimes helps when re-re-reinstalling Windows Wink

When I'm not at the keyboard, I tend to enjoy lighter continental beers these days - I used to like heavy English ales, especially Tanglefoot, Wadworths 6X, Hook Norton or Bishop's Tipple, but I now find they just send me to sleep Sad

I've also never got the Guinness thing, but they say you really need to drink it in Dublin to fully appreciate it... maybe one day...

Oh, and when in the Midlands, Banks' Mild usually goes down well.

The thing about Guinness is, I have only drunk the bottled stuff to any great extent, I don't like pub Guinness as much.
German beer is better, but you aren't likely to get any sort of Alt bier in an English pub Sad

Nor Weiss bier, unfortunately, although you do sometimes see it in bottles in Waitrose.

Hmmm, depends on where I am, time of year, what I`m doing etc.

If in Cardiff, I`ll drink Brains (usually the dark, but I`m also partial to SA as well)

if in Nottingham I`ll usually have something like Black Sheep, or one of the Burton ales.

frequently see Weiss bier in pubs in Glasgow though it does tend to be pricey. Currently drinking some westons organic cider, though in pubs I usually drink Guinness or whatever real ale is on offer. At home I normally drink red wine.
Of course we should all be drinking open beer:-
