I was flabbergasted when I went to a Walmart somewhere and found grog on the shelves. Here you can get it at grocery stores as well but it's all in the actual grog shop, like another little store inside the big store.

Right, I've seen some stores like that, but most of them here, it's just on the other side of the pop aisle.

Here in NB, Canada it's all government owned atm. My little village has a gas station/movie rental/liquor store lol. They've been talking more and more about privatization but I honestly don't mind the ones we have. Wouldn't mind a bit more variety, but they do try to bring in new and different beers.

That's some straight up pirate talk right there. What the fuck, cobbler?

I'm reading Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander / Aubrey/Maturin series. It is impossible to read without wanting to drink--with all of the grog-ration, wine and port references.

So I'm in Manhattan this week and was out at the pub last night. My friend bought me a bottle of Blanche De Chambly and low and behold, it tastes nothing like the Blanche De Chambly back home! Weird. Checked the label and it's imported from the same place. I actually didn't like it as much as what we have. Far too sweet and not citrus-y enough. It had more of a flowery scent than an orangey one. The picture on the bottle looked a bit different too. So if any of you Americans try it because I said it was good, but you think it tastes like ass, it's not my fault

For comparison
Our bottle:

JT: I think we only get the American bottle here, too. That's probably why I'm not as keen on it as you are. Now I only want to head over there even more.

Bah, if I just didn't read this I'd be down. Tell you what. Do you like UFC? One of the guys I'm with and I are looking for somewhere to watch tomorrow. You seem like a cool guy. You down?
