We want the finest wines available to humanity. And we want them here, and we want them now! [1]


I'd prefer something typically middle-class along the lines of:

  • Becks
  • Corona
  • Peroni
  • Tuborg
  • Amstell
  • etc

as opposed to working class scum such as:

  • Stella
  • Carslberg
  • Kronenbourg
  • etc other wifebeaters and "Oh is it 10am already? I am due at Wetherspoons" beverages

but not massively fussy. – Andy

Real Ale

I wouldn't mind something non-Larger like some golden ale or something. –dg

I agree with the above; I don't particularly mind what ale. -Dave2
