Well I never did work in the oil-patch but I did spend a lot of years on a major Railway ( and I have also done some farmwork ).
I haven't seen any Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale out here but the folks at Innis & Gunn do make some good stuff.
Well it seems that all of the Beer drinkers here have switched over to Coffee ( Irish Coffee ) or perhaps even to Wine. I got the chance to sample another interesting import today called Stella Artois. The recipe for this brew dates back to 1366 AD and creates a very good Beer ( from Belgium ).
Stella is quite popular in the U.S.
Cheap beer in 0,5 litre cans, 50 eurocent
Stella is just pils, I only drink pils, but I wouldn't buy expensive ones.
Nice to see some posts here again. Stella Artois is labelled as a Premium Lager but it does taste a lot like a Pilsner. Page 3 of this thread has a photo of a bottle of my favourite local Pilsner ( a nice picture posted by The Grobe ).
How much is my beer?...
I think Norway must be one of the worst countries in the world when it comes to this. I pay 25-30 NOK for 0.5l of "regular" beer, e.g. Heineken.
Say, NOK 26 = $4,50 for 0.5l = 17 oz, giving us a hefty rate of .265 USD/oz, roughly.
Anyone more expensive? Even close? :-(
Thanks for the info Steinar. Does Heineken also have a Brewery in Norway ? Are there any local Brewers with a more reasonable price ?
There are a few supermarked budget brands, but I'm not into those.
Not even close. I moved to Alta a couple of months ago, and as a finn, I find the beer prices tormenting. Then again the cigarette prices are even worse, so hey... Double the bum.
I recently watched a video about a Ship that belonged to Finland and the Beer that they were serving onboard that vessel was Karjala. Does anyone know anything about that Beer ?
The sharks drank it.
Well, it was Finnish....
well they definitly need it in oder to survive.
Thanks for the replies. I don't know if they export any Beer from Finland and so I was just wondering if anyone has had the chance to try it. I'm in a rural area these days and the number of imports is somewhat limited here.
A few months ago I mentioned ( in one thread or another in these forums ) that a new Liquor Store was being built in a larger neighbouring town. The new shop is now in operation and I've had a chance to stop by there and buy a few items. Since it is part of a local Co-operative Association I will get some dividens back. Also I noticed that they are selling some Beer under the Co-op label which is interesting. The bottles are labelled as being brewed in Calgary Alberta but must be produced by a outside Brewery for the Co-op stores. One nice brew that I found there was a case of 6 bottles ( 341 ml each ) of Co-op Classic Premium Ale at $7.90.
Co-op liquor stores have by far the best beer selection around here. Only one small independent shop (Zyn) here in Calgary comes close. Take some time to explore the single bottles.
I'm back in PA where they have some weird laws regarding beer purchase. For the most part you have to get it from a distributor by the case, although there are some places that can sell six-packs. By-the-bottle is even more rare, an unfortunate thing for the adventurous type. Is it an American thing, or do all lawmakers love to think up crazy rules for alcohol?
Interestingly in the DC area there are almost no rules, and they also have the most breweries per capita of any U.S. state or territory.
The different rules for different states is odd. I remember going to Indiana a few years ago and liquor was not sold in stores on Sundays-state law. It didn't make any sense until someone explained that the bars, stadiums, golf courses, etc. "helped" the law get passed.
