    I don't get people who drink bottled beer in pubs. It's far more expensive and far worse quality. What's the deal with that?

    Indeed. One thing I hated in Bris was how early the sun came up, and how early it went down. No chance of sleeping in.

    I'd rather not have bad light stop play for the first six weeks of the season, personally.

    The quality issue is debatable sometimes, but yeah, I don't get it either. Drank spirits at my work Xmas party because the venue had no draught beer (which in itself is a disgrace)

    Happened twice to me, in the same pub (granted, it was in Oranialand).

    Ordered two beers, barmaid pulls, nothing happens <deliberate Volty bait>, goes to cellar, comes back rosycheeked...I'm afraid we're out of kegs.

    Wont drink draft in a bar in the city centre. Places are so profit orientated they dont care for the barrels and lines properly, as they know drunk people wont care at 1am. Chances are earlier on in the evening the lines arnt getting used much, if indeed at all, so the beers been sat in it a fair while



    Bottles/spirits in bars, if its a decent pub then i'll have a pint

    Surely the beer cask is airtight though so it doesn't make a difference either to health issues (no bacterial growth) or taste (won't go flat, won't oxidise) if the beer's been sat in it for a while that day?

    Cleaning lines is a concern though, you get some ****ing nasty pints sometimes (i had an undrinkable one in Rochdale a couple of months ago). But i still wouldn't go for a bottle in a pub, if i wanted to drink bottled beer i'd do it for 1/5th of the price at home and bring mates there.

    Dave Warner has a FB fan page......and 15,646 fans. I'm sure he's a nice bloke but even he'd have a chuckle at the forum topic Warner - a new breed of Aussie Test Batsmen. Call me conservative but I think he needs a run for NSW in SS first.

    Apologies for the cricket-related post.

    Makes perfect sense to me. In NZ all there is on tap is crappy Monteiths, Macs, Tui or Export, and here in the States, well, that needs no explanation.
