Brits, beer and Germany

A bit late, I know, but I thought this article from The Mirror, about Brit soccer fans in Germany, was pretty funny.

ENGLAND's massive army of World Cup fans is drinking Germany dry, it emerged yesterday.

Breweries warned beer could run out before the final because of huge demand from our supporters.

In Nuremberg, organisers revealed 70,000 England fans who flooded the city drank 1.2MILLION pints of beer - an average of 17 pints each.

Astonished bar keeper Herrmann Murr said: "Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time."

I'll stick with cider, thank you....

Stores around here carry Strongbow, which I used to drink when I was stationed in Scotland.

Of the American ciders, I like the Granny Smith varietal of Woodchuck best. (Yes, varietal ciders. What a concept....) The Cider Jack raspberry cider is pretty good, too.

Yeah, Woodchuck is good, I like that one too.
