Carrefour at Chih-Shan MRT station near Tianmu has Rince Cochon 330mL bottles (8.5% alc) on sale at the UNbelievable low price of NT$29. I almost did a double-take. As such, I had to grab 5. Did leave 2 on the shelf for someone else. ha!

I stopped my local 7 this evening, and one of the clerks turned me on to this.

Not the same as having it there in the cooler racks, the best impulse buy ever, but still some good quality brews there, at not too bad a price, comparatively speaking.

Glad to see some Fuller's Honey in there. I usually despise honey and fruit beers, but that one is a sure fire enabler.

I will order some tomorrow.
I have a feeling that those toothbrush inspired dry heaves are about to get a lot smoother.

Figured I'd copy this thread here, because it's more about the beer than the food: http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopi ... 9&t=110563

There's a new place in Danshui that has an amazing selection of imported beer, mostly Belgian, at extremely reasonable prices. The thread has photos of the beer menu. The food selection is also quite nice, portions small but very tasty. Tonight we tried escargot, garlic shrimp, and chicken wings, along with the beer. Yummy.

7-11 has sam adams sometimes. Just the regular one I think. Especially during the summer beer promotion, that happening this year? I've never seen a yuengling and don't expect to (unfortunately!) It sounds Chinese enough :)

Maybe doing a search in the famous beer thread in which I am sure this one and better are to be found :ponder:
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

Lol, Yuengling I believe is german, think the founder was Pennsylvania Dutch.

Yeah, you know I have heard somewhere that certain 7-11s have them. I've tried looking (checked out 4-5 nearby stores) but the search went nowhere! How'd you think one would go about finding one that sells em? Like maybe theres some sort of criterion a store has to meet or whatnot.

I'm not sure how much longer I can stand just going on budweisers.

I'm sure I've seen that American crap in Carrefour.

They also have proper beer from Europe.

:D

Oh, and City Super have a pretty good selection too, but it varies depending on what mood they're in.

7-Eleven has some interesting beers in the summer, but as mentioned above they vary from location to location and change rather frequently.

CitySuper in the Breeze Center has a good selection... some Rogue beers.

Costco sells their own Kirkland brand microbrew beer--not half bad and the cheapest of the lot at $33NT/bottle.

And Cascadia imports craft beer from the West Coast.

Seems you have no idea how good the beer is in the US. Too bad for you... :D
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.
