His wife died of cancer there was nothing he could do for her.

I dunno about that, sounds like something that could be tackled by a very small gun shooting very small bullets to me.

Everyone knows limoncello is the best lemon beverage

Tried it once. It tasted of lemon so unnatural that even dishwashing liquid manufacturers wouldn't add it to their stuff on account of being too artificial. Vile, vile concoction. :x

I make my own nowadays. Just peel lemons and soak the peels in a strong neutral spirit for a while then drain and mix the liquid with water and sugar. That way I can control the sweetness and make sure there are no additives in my adult lemonade.

That's a good idea. Also, if you replace clear spirit with brandy, lemon peels with cherries and sugar with, well, a bit less sugar, you can get a different yet delicious kind of adult lemonade. Well, cherryade. :biggrin:

You can make a bunch of fruit liqueurs easily using similar methods- cassis with blackcurrants is another good and easy option and you can even make bootleg Grand Marnier/ Cointreau with sweet/ sour oranges as well (down a bit in alcohol content though). No bootleg Benedictine though, God knows what goes into that...

Lager tastes better than craft beer. I mean good pilsners not carlsberg or... what's the american equivalent...? Miller lite? They are awful.

We have plenty of craft beer lagers nowadays. They are the only ones making the good stuff in the US. But light american lagers are garbage and they account for 70% of the market.

Really? Out here it is like 90% IPA. I don't mind IPAs, but prefer other types more and so it's a constant battle with my beer store to get them to stock more non-IPA types.

IPA's definitely still rule the craft beer world, I was just saying we are seeing some pretty solid lagers coming out of the craft beer market. The tricky part is a lager actually takes longer to brew, but has a smaller abv, so it doesn't demand the same price as the heavier stuff.

If you want to experience some quality (not only) craft beer, you should pay a visit to Czechia and Slovakia. Without that, any oppinion about any beer is considered invalid 😛

The truth about beer is thus: It is great in Central Europe with the exception of Germany. For some reason they managed to convince the entire world that the stuff they're selling is good.

Anyway, should anyone of you find yourself in Vienna some day don't fall for some tourist trap and visit a small, off the beaten path pub called Kolar. Best beer in town, and a real contender for best beer anywhere.

Just take care and don't get yourself the Starobrno just because it sounds Czech. I mean, sure, it is, but it's disguised Heineken swill. Heh. Although I have no idae why you would want to order anything but the Kolar beers. Unless you like wheat beer. In which case you're better off in Germany. Off you go. :p

Yup, the biggest challenge during Central European beer trip, is to avoid Heineken owned beers 😛 If you are successful during that challenge, you will be justly rewarded ;)

There are quite a number of small breweries here in Greece now as well, and apparently they are good.

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Replace Heineken with Stella Artois when in Belgium. Also, "Avoid tourist traps and find where locals drink/eat" is generally great advice. :yes:

Majestic's bit too harsh on German beers IMO, I had some nice ones and Franziskaner is legit great. Lambics >>> lagers and I so miss gueuze.
