Posted:She knows they're all forms of alcohol y'muppet. I told her to chat to puppy because he's the only american I could think of that has been here and drunk lots (obviously he's not the only one. but he's the first that sprung to mind). I thought he could explain the differences to her as he speaks the same language.I couldn't be bothered to explain it all. Call me lazy if you like.

Posted:Stout - start by imagining a beer that is almost the colour of coke. It seems to be a little bit "thicker" when you drink it, & it has bubbles on the top that are so small & thick that they look like cream. (oh, & they hold shapes when you draw in them, so you can draw a little smilie face on your pint). & it should NOT be served ice cold.R.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Stout = guinness type drinkslager = miller type beersbitter = ale (I don't think you guys really have ales but they're quite popular over here. They are less gassy than lager and taste more... bitter)spirits = strong drinks - over 35% methinks. Liquors are less strong than spirits, but still strong (say 20% and over) liquors are usualy spirits mixed with flavouring like fruit juice or somthing. Jo.

Posted:yes,spirits = liquor But Liquor does not allways equal spirits.It's all depending of your talking a liquor (I.E. Dom B&B) or if your talking a true spirit (I.E. Rum, gin, scotch)As for BeerBITTER: Red-amber draught beer from England and Wales. Stronger bitters are called Best or Special. STOUT: Dry, black ale made with dark roasted barley and a lot of hops. The most famous stout is, of course, Guinness.BROWN ALE: Sweet, bottled mild ale. The most famous variety is Newcastle Brown Ale (known as "Newky Brown" or "dog"). EXPORT: Better quality ale which was exported abroad. PALE ALE: Bottled English beer based on the brewery's best bitter. INDIA PALE ALE: IPA was originally developed to survive the long sea voyage to the Empire in India. REAL ALE: Traditional top-fermenting beers which continue to mature in the pub cellar. DRAUGHT: on "tap" in pubs, not bottledFor more info go here.http://www.alestreetnews.com/I work at (Massachusetts definitionhere)a "packy" or package store, for everyone else in the World I work at a liquor store.I'm the assistant manager for the beer department. In other words I order beer for the store.

Posted:If your ever going through Kansas City you should stop by McCoys Public House(Anyone). You can have a couple pints on me to see what our fresh brewed tastes like. I loved beer when I started working there and I don't drink anything else now. When a beer spends time in a bottle and especially a can, it can be mishandled, it can get warm and go bad. Breweries with good beer (important clause) are the way to go. And we do have the beer your curious about:Hogpound Brown: Brown AleNewcomb's IPA: Indian Pale AleDry Stout: StoutLanding Light: LagerRed Light Raspberry: Flavored LagerGinger Shandy:Lager (This beer has won Awards)We always have those beers on tap and a seasonal brew such as Oatmeal Stout(A yummy Stout), Cerveza (Mexican Pilsner; like Corona), Kill Kenny Irish Red Ale (Self Explanitory and yes, a guy named Kenny does work there and no, his life is not endangered), California Common (this is a lager brewed at ale temprature; think Anchor Steam.)and Hefa (excuse the spelling)wiezen.Whew...*Cracks knuckels, stretches fingers, snaps out of it* and on and on. Kinda a bite more info than you wanted but they make us know alot about beer. And whats not to love this is such a tasty subject!
