I just picked up a case of Valentins Weißbier (a German wheat beer) at the Zhonghe Costco. I think it was 799NT for 20 x 500ml bottles. It went fantastic with hamburgers and steak last night. By far the best beer value I've ever found in Taiwan.

That's a fine ale. i thought it had been taken off the shelves. Are they being sold in all 7 - 11s, or just some selected ones?

Couldn't say. I just saw it in my local one this lunchtime.

I'll have to swing by the gentleman's lounge later. They should have them.

Family Mart seem to be offering two 500ml cans of the silver Asahi Super Dry for 99NTD. Rather good value, IMO.

Sorry to be pedantic, but, its a LAGER, not an ALE.
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.

I've been getting the Old Speckled Hen draught cans from Jason's and City Super. It's an excellent ale.

If you like that, you may want to try Abbott's ale and London Pride, if they have it. The Abott's may come in cans, the Pride more likely in bottles. Carnegies has both and they are both fine brews, imho, as of cours is Old Speckled Hen.
