Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A trio of Swiss businessmen have launched a new drink for gay people called Queer Beer.

    Michael Hutmacher, 32, came up with the idea with two friends and has now founded a company, Lemonhead, to market it.

    He said: "My business partner, who is gay, and I were talking about how to corner the homosexual market and came up with the idea for a drink aimed specifically at gay men and women.

    "It really was just a crazy idea at first, but we've now come up with a product."

    Hutmacher, from Zug. added: "Our beer is a humorous attempt to identify with the gay scene and we hope it will help people to feel relaxed with their sexuality and not hide away."

    And he added despite its provocative name the lager wasn't just aimed at homosexuals but also straight people.

    Moel Volken, from gay rights organisation Pink Cross, said the beer was an excellent idea.

    "I'm happy to see that homosexuals are being taken seriously as consumers. I just hope that the beer tastes good," he said.

  2. Had a nutty aroma; i didnt like the crusty winnets floating on top.

    Plus, gives a whole new meaning to the phrase:
    "too much head"


    "do you mind topping me up"
  3. Surely the drink of choice for gay men, under 30, is the "Bacardi Breezer" and for those over 30, "Babycham" and everybody knows that todger-dodgers drink Guinness. :wink:
  4. They should pick Michael Jackson as a spokesperson. "Hey, when I'm "Home Alone" with a young friend and want to liven things up, I just open a couple Queer Beers, and before you know it, I've got the sizzle in my pizzle, and the back door's open."
  5. Have you been looking in MDN's fridge?
  6. Brings a whole new meaning to:
    "Just nipping down the local, for a beer and a fag"
  7. This is your brain on Queer Beer.
