Beer Alert & Directory IV


True, but sometimes out and about, I’ll just splurge for the sake of trying a local beer I’ve never heard of if it’s under a 100.


It’s good sitting on the floor at Taipei Main Station. I think I’ll go soon.



When’s the party?


Taiwan Beer
Double Hops Lager Beer.
3.5% abv
NTD 43.
Very good on a hot day. Surprised at how decent it is.

Just started bottling this style, the TTL guy says.


TTL’s American IPA Baby, 5% abv.
Doesn’t taste at all like the IPAs I’ve drank in the U.S. over the years.
Must be because it’s 35 IBU.
Need to up that level to nearly double to get a hoppy taste, imho.


Cool but why only 3.5%?


No idea, but doesn’t taste like a 3.5% beer.
If you see it somewhere, try it out.
Can drink more, but not get so drunk.


That’s promising actually. On the list.


so you can back it up with a whisky, of course


Available at Family Mart, NT$105 per can. This is a very nice, mild summer pale ale that’s pretty ubiquitous up and down the East coast.

Give the Gift of Beer
It’s a well known fact that beer tastes better when someone else buys it for you, so it’s a tradition on International Beer Day to buy beer for your friends! When you present the beer, don’t forget to say the traditional words of beer-giving:

“I bring you the gift of beer.”

By giving the gift of beer to your friends and receiving the gift of beer in return, everyone’s beer becomes much more delicious.

International Beer Day


My one liter celebration of beer day from Jason’s; very good sale price.




Very much worth it. Tastes like a true pilsner should. :+1:



@Rocket ain’t that much of a beer drinker, but an icy pilsener does tend to put a fuckin button in the end of a miserably hot Taipei day.


That’s Obama in his cousins pub in Offaly, Ireland.

I’m not shitting ya. :slight_smile:


Right you are, young fella, this is known :+1:


Actually it was when his very distant cousin visited the US…

…We miss Obama…The US has taken a terrible turn


He’s all yours. Maybe if you give him Irish citizenship he can run for office there.
