Liquors of the World Thread - Fact and Fiction - Info & FunViews: 528

Gagan Chhabra Topic on alcohol - so try keeping me away! Although I've turned into a mundane W&S guy now - and you rarely find me enjoying much beyond my VAT 69, I have had the good fortune of getting absolutely plastered on many different types of alcohol - including a Greek arrack once which is probably amongst the most amazing liquors I have drunk.

My favourite try-outs, however, remain beer and I completely agree with earlier threads which sing glory of Stella Artois. However, absolutely the most amazing beer I've ever had is Erdinger. And if you can get your hands on Erdinger draught, that is absolute bliss.

You won't, unfortunately, find Stella or Erdinger anywhere in Bangalore - believe me I have tried! The perception on non-Indian beer in Bangalore is restricted to the more stereotypical Heineken, Carlsburg and Tiger. However, if any of you are up north, some bars in Delhi serve Stella and Hoegarten. I even found Stella at the Champs bar in the Maharaja Park Plaza in Ludhiana.

Other "interesting beers" I've had include Asahi, a nice light lunch-type Japanese beer; Yanjing (China's official beer!); Tsingtao; a vile beer called Blue Girl and, of course, VB and Guiness in Oz. A good change from regular beers in Kings in Goa - that beer seems to go so well with the whole laid back ambience of sitting on a beach aimlessly.

Finally, there is a lot to be said about drinking at a microbrewery. I've been to a couple at Singapore and HK and find the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Sitting around and getting your beer fresh off the brewery is an awesome feeling. Most microbreweries are easily accessible and centrally located. Brewerks for instance is on Clarke Quay in Singapore with a nice open-air area that looks out onto the Quay (like most other hangouts in that area) and has an amazing array of fresh brews (I have been told that the most popular beer here is Indian lager - tasting almost exactly like KF!).

Tarun, finally a suggestion - instead of restricting this to just talk about liquors, it may be good to expand scope of this thread to talk about a very integral part of liquors - bars. I am certain there will be enough great insights coming back from the group on bars around the world and will be great tips to keep in mind when travelling. I think that the toughest pieces of information to acquire while travelling across and out of the country is to find the right watering holes
