I’m only starting to realize the power of not overthinking things.
Yes, some years ago a friend of mine connected with some beer aficionados in the US and after trying a few, they told him "this is our favourite, this is what we drink" and got out the Stellas! He didn't tell them it's known as wifebeaterI think I mentioned this once before, but Heineken (or "heinnies", as we called them) used to be considered top-shelf here, back before we had many other imported beer and local brews. It was the earliest import in my neck of the woods (the first green bottle I ever saw), premium priced and stronger than bud or miller.
My understanding is that Heineken is ok but they served a shitty weak version in UK. Later they wanted to move upmarket and so they reintroduced the one every other country had and called it Heineken Export and now that version is served everywhere like a proper beer to gullible brits who think they are getting something special.there are some pubs which dont serve an adult beer and if you ended up in one and couldnt escape then you should follow the course of action outlined above similarly if you have gone round someones house and they dont have an adult beer on offer for you, resort to the hipflask
Happens to me all the time, I think it's a mark of respect.On the day last weekend when I had 12 pints, at the end of thd night, that same woman who I took to see the tree called me over as I was leaving, to talk to this sound system guy who is growing a banana tree.
So I was trying to explain my project to him, the GANs, the marriage of nature and technology, apophenia, forest bathing etc and at one point he had to stop me and told me simply
"Can you back off out of my face please".
Is that the sort of breakthrough you are talking about or am I on the wrong track?
Just read @Leo's post above, I think they are somehow opposite sides of the same coin.My understanding is that Heineken is ok but they served a shitty weak version in UK. Later they wanted to move upmarket and so they reintroduced the one every other country had and called it Heineken Export and now that version is served everywhere like a proper beer to gullible brits who think they are getting something special.
Is it not Heineken that had a really famous and successful marketing campaign - the first of its kind - in the early 20th century when it was introduced to the US; they paid models and beautiful people to go to bars and ostentatiously ask for Heineken - and, if it wasn't available, leave, equally ostentatious.
this one was categorically a different size to those ultra small jamaican ones. i know the ones you mean though. i should get one in. and maybe one of those tonic wines as well.Guinness Foreign Extra is in every offy chief. Most pubs here stock it by bottle, Jamaican/Bajan favourite
