@rajvardhansharma,
Coors has a small reserve of their beers that never leave the stae. They are quite tasy nd re good with barbecue or grass fed beef "shorty ribs"
The Coors they ship out by the tanker and bottle in several cities, really sucks.

Most EUers are opinionated beer snobs. I think that IPA's and other "high hoppy beers" are for their limited tastes. I can drink an ale or two but I like the low hop style like Chesterfield.
Ive been preferring apple ciders especially the rejuvinated ciders that the old varieties of apples have been found and entire orchards of these sourish varietals make some really great ciders.

@glitterbag,
Nattie Bo is still the favorite malt beverage of sailboaters in the Chessie. Everything else they drink has vodka in it and you wanna stay away from these guys

@farmerman,
We've been brewing zyder in zummerzet since before records began.

This is particularly good, if you can find it.

@farmerman,
I don't know what you mean by that. It's scrumpy, it's pretty powerful, no other country imports that.

@farmerman,
I had my first real rough cider (from a wooden barrel) in Salisbury in a pub where I'd stayed with my German and Scottish friends over night.

Thankfully, we only had to drive a couple of miles south the other day

@Walter Hinteler,
At this pub, locally known as Eli's, they serve pints of cider with a shot of Vimto.

@izzythepush,
"HARD" is our term for some ciders with alcohol. Most iers sold in the fall are mostly sugary non aloholic soft drinks. So the one you showed above in the platic jug was an alcohol beverage?? . We only see really small "airline galley " whiskeys in plastic containers.

@izzythepush,
2 countries separated by a common language. Does SCRUMPY mean "contains alcohol"?

@farmerman,
It's a rough cider, more alcoholic than the usual, typically produced locally through natural fermentation.

@Walter Hinteler,
We have several artsy ciders made by the microbreweries, too yeasty for me. I do like the more filtered ones like Angry Orchard Granny SMith.
Alc is about 5% . I treat myself to one every few weeks.

Here's a good guide on alcohol content: http://getdrunknotfat.com/alcohol-content-of-beer/. In my youth, my favorite used to be Grey Goose. Now, it's red wine.

That's what we call cider.

Scrumpy is a particularly potent strain popularised in the West country with recipes, and varieties of trees, going back millennia.

@farmerman,
The one above is from a particular brewery that's a bit out of the way and achieved celebrity status in its own right.

Lots of foodies and celebrity chefs have visited. Yet you still have to go there yourself if you want some. It's not in the shops.

I used to go there when my parents first moved to Somerset. You get given a selection of ciders to drink and only pay for what you're taking away in said plastic container. Usually contains a gallon. Is that how you take your cider on airlines, by the gallon?

@izzythepush,
who said anything about cider on airlines. My comment was if that stuff was alcoholic , does it still get sold in a gallon plastic milk jug??

Youve answered me. Apparently you bring your own containers.

@izzythepush,
Remember theres an entire half of the planet that doesnt understand your vernacular. I watch some Brit tv on Netflix and the neat thing is that often the subscripts make the point that most of the UK language forms is in your use of adjectives.

@farmerman,
Your use of the phrase "airline galleys," is what set me off.

I like the idea of you settling down into your seat and ordering a gallon of cider just as you set off.

I suppose you could bring your own containers, I've never thought that far ahead.

A few weeks ago I took an American friend to Cheddar, we didn't have time to go to Wilkins so I got some of this in one of the many gift shops.
