U2 Backstage alcohol requirements during ZooTV tour

I was taking a look at the The Smoking Gun website and found this info on the boys:

No wonder Bono started developing that alcohol alergy duing this time.

You can see info on other stars here:

Being in a band is cool.

I wonder how much Bono drank after each show.

a six of guiness maybe?
that stuff is great, but it's fattening.

Bubblegum-tasting beer. I like it sometimes, though.

GUINNESS GIVES YOU STRENGTH!

Actually, it is a myth that the Guinness is "heavy". The black color comes from the barley being "burned" before they use it. The thick head is really just air.

In fact, the Guinness is a lager (like Bud), not an ale. AND, it has about as many calories as a light beer! (110, me thinks).

I admit...I took the tour. So yet another reason why....

GUINNESS IS GOOD FOR YOU!

eeh, is Guinness not a stout ? It is more related to a porter and a imperial stout.

Note that the quality of the drinks gradually goes up as you go along the list.

OK OK...I guess I went a bit overboard with the "lager" and "ale" bit...I actually thought it was right. Yes, Guinness is an ale.

However, I was right about the calories...check it out (from www.realbeer.com):

Anchor Steam - 145
Bass Ale - 140
Beck's - 140
Budweiser - 140
Corona Light - 105
Guinness Draught - 110
Miller Lite - 96
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - 150
Sierra Nevada Stout - 185
