commercial american beer is crap. The good stuff is made in fairly small quantities at local breweries.

nothing beats a good dark ale.. unfortunately they are pretty hard to find on this side of the pond (us)

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

Don't be fooled. We don't have any marvelous beers over here. The same garbage that is exported to you is the same garbage they sell over here. That's why I'm a dedicated wine (burgundy) drinker. Hello, by the way from the east coast of the USA.

Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale from Nova Scotia is as fine a beer as any.

good one heathen!... here's another joke from a different angle!

A Texan, a Californian and a Seattlite were all drinking in a bar.

After a while, the Texan grabbed a bottle of tequila, threw it in the air and shot it into a thousand pieces. "Don't you boys worry about it," said the Texan, "we have plenty of tequila deep in the heart of Texas. "

The Californian, not wanting to be outdone, selected a bottle of fine wine, tossed it up, and shot it into smitherines. "Hey, don't sweat it dudes," chirped the Californian, "There's zillions of bottles of wine in Cali."

The Seattlite, following suit, guzzled down a bottle of micro-brewed beer, chucked it towards the rafters, shot the Californian, and (without missing a beat) pulled out his hand and caught the beer bottle. Everyone in the bar stood frozen in shock.

"Relax, kids," said the Seattlite cooly, "Up in Seattle, there's a freakin' ****load of Californians. No big deal."

OK now here’s the legal bit.... No offence was intended to any race, religion, American, Scottish, ethnic group, crowd or assemblage whatsoever. ScotsRobert cannot be hel liable, judged, sued or otherwise for telling a joke.


O Scotia! my dear, my native soil! For whom my warmest wish to heaven is sent; Long may thy hardy sons of rustic toil Be blest with health, and peace, and sweet content.
