Greetings from the US

Welcome mate. Post some pix of your car! Or at least tell us about it... And if you don't have one, tell us about the one you want.

Greetings to you Kegman, with a name like that you must visit the pubs and be an aficionado of the pint.

Hi Guys and thanks for the welcome........... the mother ship is soaking bloody wet, rain for the last 5 days, and the roof is up :-(

I work for a brewery..........and dont drink Jax lol, its the company thats just bought Bud, not a good place to work, but im fortunate that i run a small annex warehouse away from the brewery itself.

Hopefully i have got the signature right now Jeph :-)

heres another for you Bruce, see if you can find Brahma, a really smooth brazilian beer......... try to avoid things like Leffe, Hoegarden, may be imports but they are cloudy beers and not that good, if you want to get outter your tree quick theres always Stella Artois, or the fuel they use on the space shuttle called "Tennets Extra" 9% alcohol in a 330ml bottle.but be warned

Kegman,

In the military I flew allot to Germany for what we called "beer runs" (haulin' trash across the pond). The brew of choice was Parks Perminator. The beer was 13% alcohol by volume in a big bottle! The conversations we would have after a couple of those would make the owner of a brothel blush.

Cheer's to you Kegman!!

Welcome Mate!!
We have a local pizza joint that makes a killer white pizza with fresh garlic and Feta cheese. Stella is THE beer with it and they're the only joint around who has it.
I just got my Jo Siffert movie from Germany and it has tons of footage of F1 from the late sixties and early seventies. Geez, Brands Hatch was out in the country and they had photogs and all kinds of people walking around the edge of the track with cars flying right past them!!

The mind boggles at all the beers about bruce........ we produce 3 millilon cans and bottles a day....that doesnt include or keg/cask production

Quickurt, in the UK we call it Stella Act A Twat, or wife beater.....really bad rep over here

My son is in the forces Jax, and he wont touch the Tennets Extra, when we send it out of the warehouse they normally go 24 pallets to a trailer, but theres that much sugar in it that we have to send out 22 because of the extra weight on the trailer ! think i will avoid the parks then....1 of those and id be a gonna

I'll have to wear a sleeve-less white t-shirt to get pizza the next time, and see what happens!!
