    I still have my ceramic flagon (hinged top) from long ago, as well as a plain glass one (no top, 1 quart) that now and again gets use--though more as a big glass for ice+tea on hot days.

    They are handy if you want to drink a lot quickly. Not really me these days though I can kill a six pack slowly.

    Guinness tastes significantly better in Dublin.


     Headed to Dublin tomorrow.

    I have found certain stores (Chicago area) where: (All USD)

    Budweiser-$15-$17 per 24 can (12 oz.) case

    Heineken, Bass, and Harp-$12 per 12 pack (12 oz. bottles)

    Fat Tire and Guinness are always over $1 per beer.

    The 5L Heineken keg costs more per ounce than bottles.

    I think TheGrobe is correct regarding taxes.

    If you buy any beer off the shelf please give us the prices/volume.

    I saw a fairly aggressive price for Bud/Miller in the 5 litre mini-kegs--$16.77--but that's still just $.099/oz.

    Compared to price for the six pack of Pabst--which I consider in the same class of beer--that's still double.

    On a brighter note I found some MacTarnahan's Summer Grifter IPA for a dollar a bottle. I liked it a lot, but I am a hops fan for sure. Nice 6% brew.

     I did. All prices mentioned are from stores, not pubs. What do you want to know?

    Just what the damage (and volume) is in Dublin for a grocery store Guinness and other beers--from the noteworthy to the common. Just a brief sample would be nice and ty.

    True or False; does your can of beer is cheaper than  a bottle (aussie-stubbie')  of beer ?

    Lager's around 1 euro for a bottle of 0.33l in Finland. Exports are much more expensive ofcourse.

    Thanks to Goldendog for starting off such a pleasant thread. I myself have had a favourite Beer going back to the early 1970's ( and yes I know that is a long time ago lol ). Originally sold as Lethbrige Pilsner the brewery that made this good stuff got taken over by a bigger outfit and now it's sold as Old Style Pilsner ( and they kept their old label design which is one of the cutest I've seen ). Depending on the store that one goes to the price is between $11.00 and $11.50 for a 6-pack of 355 ml cans, I'm afraid that the fancy math being done here in this thread confuses me  lol. Our local Liquor store also has a nice variety of imported brews. One import that I really like is Radeberger Pilsner at around $2.30 per 500ml can. Other imports include: Innes & Gunn, Lvivske Premium, Furstenberg Lager, Grolsch Premium, Lasko Club, Crabbie's Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer and other brands as well. Prices for these imports run mainly at $2.50 to $3.50 per 500ml can or bottle. And let me just add " Cheers One and All !!! "

    I strongly despise encouraging young children to such habits.

    Stay away from bud Samsch!

    I've had the pleasure of having imported Beer from several Countries over the years however unfortunately not yet from Finland. And Samsch will have to make up his own mind when he gets to to be old enough  lol.

    Well sure, but there's no reason to encourage it.

    Well getting back to the subject of beer I recently had the chance to try a couple more imported brews. One was from SCJ Obolon of Kiev in the Ukraine and costs around $ 2.40 for a 500 ml bottle. Another one was from the UK and is called Marston's Oyster Stout and was a bit higher in cost at $ 4.25 for their 500 ml bottle. Also there is a imported beer here with the odd name of Bavaria-Holland, odd because this brewery is indeed in Lieshout, Holland and thus quite some distance from Bavaria  lol. I'm assuming tho that the connection is in the recipe. Hmmm, nearly time for a glass of beer here --- Cheers !

    To carry on with this important topic the Beer of choice today is from a smaller Brewery here is Canada. It is Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale. This fine Brewery was founded in 1820 and has it's head-office in Halifax, Nova Scotia --- Cheers !!!

    I had a few bottles of Hop Czar recently. Good enough IPA from a fine local brewer but not so good I'll go rushing back for more.
