And I meant haven't you noticed the general population getting larger, not haven't you noticed something in my reply 😉

I've become bored of beer recently, so I'll just use this as an opportunity to give it up for a while, we're all getting fatter now anyway... 

That'll be my approach as well

Unlikely. I'd happily go without if Leo/Chang/Heineken were the only choices. Bought myself a handful of A Go Go IPA and will follow my preference for quality over quantity. Others are welcome to drink tasteless beer all they want - stacks of Leo boxes fill me with dread!

Right there with you mate. I am certainly bored of mainstream tasteless beer. My local car wash is still selling draft Guinness - all I need is to pretend to have my truck washed...

I've been bombarded with adverts for Punk IPA, and whilst I love the taste, B111 for 330ml(B666 for 6 bottles) isn't worth it.

this is true but it's even more of a challenge when exercise is forbidden too

 

it might be time to hit the pharmacies instead

I am using resistance bands - they work a treat and are portable. I even put them in my paniers when I ride along with a pair of press-up supports so I don't strain my wrists. Strained wrists don't work on bikes!

Most long timers here have been through the rounds, the majority end up with Leo as their 'go to' beer.

Oh, and more. They used to have a selection of maybe 30 craft beers, now just a handful. However, it is 5 mins away and rather plush with great music, killer rack of ribs and cheap car cleaning services. Shame I drive a truck I prefer covered in mud!

Cheap and cheerful, and when tastebuds aren't what they once were, what's the point in spending the extra money 😉

Glad to be in the -1*most crowd. I never drank lager before I arrived here. Took me years to get used to fizzy water. Remember drinking a bottle of Amarit at a street party downtown when a Thai guy approached me, told me he worked for Kloster and that Amarit was Kloster that failed QC. It only took that to get me off lager again. I'll happily abstain if plain is the only option.

And that's the problem, with prices high the demand is low, with low demand comes expensive unsold stock, and with that comes just a handful, and eventually none. 😔
