BIRA White Ale is a deliciously different wheat beer with low bitterness, a hint of spicy citrus with a soft finish – a refreshing all day craft beer, brewed with the finest natural ingredients mixed with barrels of passion.
BIRA Blonde Lager is a sparkling contrast to the insipid mass market beers. Rich in colour, made with the choicest two row barley, extra malty and high hopped with delicate aroma and bitter hops, this flavourful lager is equally at home on a master chef’s table and on a casual evening with your friends.
… “and water from the world’s most protected sources” .. so where exactly is this brewery ?
Where did you get the 3.5% ? BB's link says 4.9% ABV
4.9% too strong for sensible drinking. 4.5% max unless you wanna get sh!tfaced. ;) 3.7% to 4.1% for a good session beer. I don't get why people drink these cloudy beers.:confused:
Obviously, people on this thread come from different schools of thought. :) The purpose of drinking for a lot of people around here is to get thoroughly smashed. Which explains why names like "Knock Out" exist.
Oh...and I have seen this rising trend of mixing strong beer and cheap wine to accelerate the speed and intensity of inebriation. This happens in Kerala, where bars are now allowed to serve only beer and wine. It's kind of cute to watch them carry a beer bottle in one hand and a small bottle of wine in the other. On a recent trip to Trivandrum, the bar tender at a decent beer/wine parlor did ask me if I would like some wine to go with my Haywards 5000. For the record, I said no. May be some other day!:D
One good thing that might come from the introduction of these new micro boutique brewery type beers is that the consumers may stay awake long enough to develop some inkling of a responsible attitude to drinking, and may actually enjoy the experience.
Did you see footage of violence outside, and inside the stadium in Marseilles ? Indians are merely trying to emulate both their former colonial masters, and former patrons, the ruskies ;) Drink Hard, beat the opponent hard !
forget India Pale Ale -- go for " India Wife Beater Ale " -- that would get the whole family lying flat on their backs.
I guess that would be different to Aussie wife beater. I am sure percentage wise we get more cases of domestic violence here in Australia than India.
Key statistics show that:
Family violence is prevalent in the Victorian community.
A woman is killed in Australia almost every week by a partner or ex-partner. (AIC, 2007/2008)
More than one in three Australian women (34%) who have had an intimate partner, have experienced violence from a partner or ex-partner. (Mouzos&Makkai, 2004)
In a report released by the Sentencing Advisory Council (2013) shows an increase of 72.8% in reports of family violence incidents to Victoria Police between 2004 and 2012.
In Victoria, the number of family incident reports submitted by police rose from 50,382 to 60,829 in 2012/13 (Victoria Police 2012/13)
