    Whilst shopping in Tescos(sorry) I came across Tusker Beer on the shelves as well as Tiger Beer.

    I have managed to get Tiger Beer before but never Tusker.

    Got a few bottles and had a memory lane sesh with the ex crusher,trouble is Tusker tends to come back and haunt you in the morning.

    Any other overseas beers etc out there on the shelves.

    Please share the info as its cheaper than traveling back to original supplier as pusser isnt paying this time.

    Marstons Pedigree, Bishop's Finger, Spitfire, Bombardier, Hobgoblin, Fiddler's Elbow, as well as Stella and Heineken - well, for me here in Canada they're overseas beers!

    There's Carlberg's Elephant beer, when I can get it. Tuborg's available too and of course Guinness.

    Victoria Bitter, the only Ozzie beer I could stomach.
    Schooner, Hallifax Nova Scotia + McEvans sweet stout (disgusting)
    Most other places it was Tuborg or San Mig.
    Or the Best, Oranje Baum?

    Generations of airmen, including me, in RAFG got sh1tfaced on Warsteiner (Wobbly), another favourite was Grolsch. But one favourite of mine is Jever Mai Bock, evil stuff. Got totally smashed in the NCOs Club in Jever on that stuff, still managed to cycle back home (well trained bike).

    Aldi in Belgium sell a good beer Park Abdijbier, looks and tastes a bit like Theakstons Old Peculier, now that is loony soup.

    There's a small independent brewery in the hamlet of
    Treshaggum-on-the-table (between St Mirren & Padstow)
    down in darkest Cornwall that manufactures a refreshing
    brew called *Old Father Denzils Brain Stem Activity Stopper*

    A cheeky little number, that was advertised on Landsend Radio
    once with the jingle:

    "Your sisters' got a headache, and your cousins' won't be kissed,
    So grab a crate of Denzils - and get absolutely pissed"

    Historical note: This beer was supped in vast amounts prior to
    the hamlets annual "Sacrifice lost caravaning tourists to ensure
    a good turnip crop next year" Festival.....since outlawed.

    Rumour has it that you can still purchase it locally, but it is not
    recommended that you hang around after sunset.

    Know what Billy, there must be a janner down 'ere incognito who slips one of those into my nitecap every birthday cos every year its the same. Have a drink, have a crack and end up insulting some asshole and falling over!

    Thank you Father Denzil - never felt a thing.

    Cruzcampo.. Spain..

    Was in the Army Beer Store at Ft Belvoir (suburban Washington DC and site of the home of Lord Fairfax) and there was a big display of Cruzcampo..

    Spousal Unit pointed it out.. asks if I want a 6er for old times..

    Had to tell her that the Cruzcampo stories that she has heard were because there was no other beer in the bar..

    No Thanks..
