Yeah, not at all. Cider never even crossed my mind. I'd probably get made fun of for bringing it. People would just pass it over for something they already know.

Fair enough. Strange, I consider our cultures to be very similar, then you get the odd difference like that.

it's not only that. if you try some of the fast foods from here they taste different from what you guys have even though it's still mcdonald's, KFC, etc.


also, if you ever tried to serve a pint to an american at room temperature here it would get sent back

How about mulled wine?




It's cheap, easy to serve and will knock you out. BTW you can also add extra Rum or Amaretto.

EDIT: Heres a recipe since I don't kow if you can get it where you live.

I don't know if you guys have Budweiser 66, it's like a lighter version of Bud, I got some because it was on offer and I got ripped for that. I guess people over here don't drink as many straight liquors as have been mentioned on this thread. Or maybe it's just because I'm 18 and a student and we just drink whatever is cheap

History

The original Budweiser Bier or Budweiser Bürgerbräu, was founded in 1785 in České Budějovice (Budweis), Bohemia, which at the time (until 1918) was part of the Habsburg Monarchy. The company began exporting to the US in 1871.[2][3] In the U.S., Anheuser-Busch started using the Budweiser brand in 1876 and registered it two years later.
A second company (now named Budvar) was established in 1895 by mainly Czech brewers, which also started exporting beer under the name Budweiser (being the German way of referring to something from the city such as a beer, while "Budějovický" means the same in Czech). These exports into the US market led to the Budweiser trademark dispute. Negotiations between the three companies, the two from the original town and the American Anheuser-Busch, about using "Budweiser" reached an agreement in 1911 that allowed Anheuser-Busch to use the brand "Budweiser" only in North America.[4]
After World War I the Austro-Hungarian Empire was broken up, a number of new nations were created, including Czechoslovakia. After the fall of communism, both local breweries tried to secure rights to traditional names.
[edit]Trademark dispute

Since three companies had or have trademarks for the name "Budweiser", they have been party to many lawsuits in a number of countries. Because of such disputes, Budvar is sold in the United States and Canada under the label Czechvar.
In the European Union (EU), Budějovický Budvar is recognized as a product with Protected Geographical Indication. However, the trademark rights to the name Budweiser for some products other than beer are owned by Anheuser-Busch.[5]
In early 2007, Anheuser-Busch and Budvar reached an agreement that stated that Anheuser-Busch would market Budvar/Czechvar in the United States and several other countries for an undisclosed fee. However, both sides stated that this did not affect their lawsuits. Czechvar is listed in Anheuser-Busch's product lineup with brief product info sheet.
In March 2009, Anheuser-Busch lost an appeal against the EU's Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) decision to reject the registration of Budweiser as an EU-wide trademark for beer for Anheuser-Busch. The court pointed out that Budějovický Budvar had proven that it had been using the trade mark during at least the five years preceding the publication of Anheuser-Busch's application for a Community trade mark. The decision also covers malted non-alcoholic beverages (such as non-alcolohic beer).[6] On July 29, 2010, Anheuser-Busch also lost its last-instance appeal against this decision.
This means that Anheuser-Busch may not register the name Budweiser as an EU-wide trademark for beer. In Germany and Austria in particular, only Budějovický Budvar is allowed to use the trademark Budweiser.[7]

Having never been to a fast food place abroad I wouldn't know but I'm sure it's true, like different beef and that kind of thing. I wish we had that KFC double chicken sandwich thing though I don't really like pints too cold, I don't want to have to wait for it to warm up before I can drink it but a warm, flat pint is worse than cheap cola.

Oh yeah, easily my favourite drink. It's not the cheapest though so sometimes I'll go for something else, but it's well worth the extra money. I got 45 botles yesterday in fact, Ł18 (~$27). It won't last more than 3 weeks or so but great value.

Holy shit I think I'd throw up if I drank luke-warm beer. I can't even drink cold beer. It has to be freezing. I usually throw 3-4 beers in the freezer and wait until they start to crystallize.

In my student flat I've got a metal panel outside the window and a little ledge, so we keep our beer out there to keep it cold (doesn't work in summer obviously but now it's great). Anything under normal fridge temperature (4 degress C or so) is too cold for my liking though.
