Their pale ale is better.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

This year they are offering something called extra strong bear beer, that French beer that they always offer, and some other beer from Italy. What will it take to bring the Hawaiian beers back? At least they have the Gordon Biersch beers.


Shieeeeet. There just ain't no pleasing some folk.

I thought it was a bit poor myself this year. Gordon 'blersch', too many wheat beers, too many strong canned beers but only one Belgian type beer. Could be better.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

Bear beer is not a generic beer BTW ...

I am not saying it was generic. I am saying the boring design on the can made it look generic.
