    Right you lot, we all bang on about it and how great it was and how it's so crap we can't get it in the UK.

    I've had a chat with an importer and they've explained some of the logistical problems, such as the fact that a lot of German breweries still operate a deposit scheme on crates.

    If it would be possible to bring it into the country who would seriously consider buying it?
  2. Well, that depends on the cost model.
  3. To be honest, German beer is only fit for consumption in Germany.

    Anyone who drinks lager in the UK is a poof. Ask Jarrod if you dont believe me.

    Absolutely, however unless I can actually present a case that there is an opportunity for the import company they can't even begin to look at it. Their head of purchasing is prepared to approach the brewery and see what can realistically be done.
  5. I would prefer Warsteiner, a much nicer drop of beer.

  8. Recently had a reunion with some lads I was in Osnatraz with in the late 80s and tried to get hold of a few yellow handbags but no joy in the UK. I would love to see it over here, I always thought it was much nicer than Becks which seems to be the omnipresent North German beer available over here, plus the yellow handbag 10 pack was sthe perfect party accessory!

    You can get that in tesco and morrisons mate.
  10. I prefer to actually fuck women, instead of talking about women I'd like to fuck whilst comparing the hop content of my beer with other like-minded ill-dressed people with hemp jumpers and poor personal hygene.

  12. They're blue handbags now I'm afraid.

    This was taken at the Osnabrück Ibis a couple of years ago!

  13. Sainsbury`s are selling Warsteiner, Bittburger etc at £1-89 per bottle. It would be interesting to know how much they give the brewers.
  14. German lager drinkers wear leather shorts with braces so I know they dont fuck women.

    Tribute drinkers fuck real ale drinking women .
