    Just curious as to what everyone's beer or liqour of choice is. For me its a good healthy glass of Coors and a couple of bottles of Jack Daniels.

    I don't care for beer much, except sometimes with lunch when I am on holiday. Wine is my favourite poison and the only wine I really dislike is Retsina.

    images/smilies/default/tongue.gif Well having just finnished rather nice Merlot I would have to say red wine however, if you are buying then I would drink 'almost' anything (and I have...lol).
    But I do like a good Guiness, sometimes with a tot of port just to take the edge off!!!
    Irish whisky is near the top also, Bush Mills, or a nice Scottish Lagavulin.
    Need I say more????????
    Always enjoyed the Sgt's mess port!!!!! :rolleyes:

    Bitter if I'm in a pub - Spitfire will do nicely, otherwise Courage Directors.

    Southern Comfort or Scotch if I'm at home. With a meal, wine: anything will do it all tastes the same to me.

    At University in Guildford over twenty years ago when I wasn't driving and could cope with hangovers, Gales HSB or draught Cider at the Ram in Godalming. Can't get any of those in my corner of London these days.

    I used to drink pure spirit by the thimble full and it still got you drunk.

    What an inebriated lot you all are! I am an old fashioned lager man myself, especially Stella or Kronenbourg. Mind you, if I am at home I like a glass of white wine or a whisky and coke, maybe a brandy.

    By the way, what has any of this discussion got to do with WW2? :rolleyes:

    .........I think the original versions of these they sell in Belgium and France are reasonable enough, but the versions brewed in the UK are total muck. Horrible.

    Only an occasional recreational beer/ale:

    John Smith's "Magnet Ale"
    Theakston's "Old Peculiar"

    Wine only with meals.

    I think the convention is that the Barracks section is an off-topic area. So long as off-topic stuff stays there, and people don't inflate their ranks by only posting there, I have no objection. Increasingly people are making genuine friends over the net, so knowing a bit more about people helps

    This is why the discussion on Sqn Leader Jack Charles is now in Barracks - its increasingly about psychiatry not WW2

    Johnny Walker Red or Dewar's for liquor, Lowenbrau beer if I have the money, Budweiser if not, and as for wine....not much of a wine guy as it lacks the punch I require. Also Sam Adams lager isn't a bad beer.

    But depending on the wine and the beer, wine is up to three times stronger. In alcohol terms (12-15% ABV), a bottle of wine is equivalent to probably eight good strength glasses of beer (5% ABV).

    A PINT (not litre) of cool Greene King takes some beating.

    One bottle a Jack Daniels and I'm done!! But for the easy stuff it's Bud.

    True about the wine being equal to 8 glasses of beer, but I could go buy a case of Budweiser and get 24 beers for $14 instead of spend more money on the equivalent of 8.

    Being a true Brit-I like five pints of warm mild and bitter in the pub followed by a bag of fish and chips and a deep fried mars bar for afters. It's a wonder I get home of a night! Gung ho-chin chin.

    Roger and out
