Well, that's got Ax's vote.
SuperWin.

Just as I sit down with some port before finishing my boring-as-all-hell essay too. I'm having a small bit of port now, then the rest once the essay's done.

Funny cause it's 100% true...

I went "drinking" (went to the pub) with him the other day, and he only bought wine, which cost twice as much as a beer. But as he said, he'd much rather trust you with beer, seeing as you drink it regularly!

Which reminds me, by the way, what're your thoughts on a) Stella Artois, and b) Carlton Draught?

Just reading reviews of yum cha restaurants, and I find it hilarious that people actually complain about the service.

I mean honestly, they must've never been to Asia before - just getting a "hello, welcome" and "what would you like to drink?" is considered top class there. From my experience in little shops in Malaysia, "what do you want?" is the norm.

Besides, we all (all the Asians) know that people from Hong Kong who work in yum cha restaurants can't speak English and hate everyone.

I'm genuinely keen on this place too, since multiple reviews positively mention its wine list and the interaction of the owner in helping to select a good wine to complement the meal.

And sure, wine costs twice as much as beer, but you can't just get class for free. Got to price out the plebs, you know.

Class comes from style, style comes from spirit, and spirit comes from martial arts. Or at least, that's what people would have you believe about us Asian martial artists

I drink wine too, but only when it's free or I'm damned sure it's good. And when I have the money.

Yeah, I figured he'd be a bit like that. Oh well, I can be worse if there's a boutique beer in the fridge that I haven't tried.

Stella is a popular choice, it's my mother's favourite beer, even! But I think there are similar tasting lagers that are cheaper. There's something about the taste that I don't totally dig.

I can't remember what Carlton Draught tastes like, I think it's slightly better than the average ocker beer but nothing special?

All right, I'm gonna head off and study some Greek, so why don't you, Ax and Bonnie, decide when and where we're gonna eat, and let me know?

Bye everyone! I might be back later

I was certainly hesitant on joining in on the beer since I figure Carlton Draught is one of those run-of-the-mill labels making unsophisticated beer for the drunk masses by the truckload. I'm not familiar with Stella though.

What beers do you recommend?

Actually, I really should be heading off to finish this essay too.

So with this place getting quiet, I guess I shall. This will be so boring.

Back once it's done.

Oh no! I used to live in Geebung! Then I moved to Yeronga and was suddenly hot and attractive! Now I live in Surrey Hills, Melbourne and rue the day I was denied my shot in the ring.

Basically anything Australian and regularly on tap is an unsophisticated beer for the drunk masses. A few Cooper's options are exceptions - they're still for the drunk masses, but are also enjoyed by some experts. You can also find some more independant Australian brews like Blue Tongue lager that are pretty nice.

I enjoy a Heineken, and they're almost always on tap. Very run of the mill, probably the most well known beer in the world and a lot of people think it tastes crap, but really I've never found that big a problem with it. Similar thing with Grolsch, Peroni and such. Unless you become an elitist none of those should be of real offence to you. Almost anything from Germany is good. Ditto Belgium, but you usually find Belgian ales on tap at specialty bars.
