Well said. If you walk into any of the pubs near me and ask for a pint of large you get disdainful glances from all and made to feel most unwelcome. We like our beer to be more meal than drink!

Twinings? Only when desperate my good fellow. Us proud Yorkshiremen only drink Yorkshire Tea (Yaaarkshire Tea). I even take a cup out when walking t'whippet!


Personally, I prefer Tetley. Big corporate name, I know..but its very smooth.
Much better than american synthetic crap we got (Lipton..blah)

Guess that means I prefer Indian black tea.
Technically though, tetley started as yorkshire tea. Depends on how you percieve significance of historic roots to actual industrial methods.

Keep up sir/mam when did you go to the motherland 1950s?

Not that long ago.
late 90s/early 2000s.
And plenty were drinking bitter..the norm was lagar, but bitter was around.

My first beer in England was something called Pedigree. I went to a pub, said I never had a british beer, let me have one they are proud of.
took me almost an hour to drink half it, then just gave up..I was not encouraged.

You come to england and drink a veterans drink.. get some lager down yer son, come over
to portsmouth and ill kindly show you how to have a good time ill take you on a pub crawl

We will welcome you and take you to some backstreet boozers where real men drink.

40?
Christ dude, I have grown fond of my liver, and insides.
Not to sound like a wimp...but unless its 40 thimble fulls...

I think blackout would hit at about number 12 really.
I wouldn't classify myself as a "real man" in those regards...I am more of a get a bit drunk, then go bird watching. Pretty sure rule 1 on bird watching is..don't vomit on said birds..sort of frowned upon in the whole sport.

In saying that, I never say I am a power drinker..but I to tend to drink a lot more than people whom claim they are..probably genetics or something...but 40..ya, thats just asking for waking up in a hospital or jail..or both. heh.

Because Stella gets you sh*tfaced so you don't really know what you're doing, especially on tap. I like Stella but after a couple, it's time to go on to the gnats piss. e.g Fosters/Carling/Carlsberg.

From what I gather from the only British man I ever knew (I never known a British woman)

I find British men are more charming, witty, romantic, magnetic...far more then American men, who tend to be childish....(Doug from king of Queens comes to mind)

They can also be pompus, arrogant, stubborn and ego centric.....

This comes from an observation of the only Brit I ever knew.....I love him like crazy for all his faults anyway...

ATS pub crawl sounds interesting.

Call it the ATS Bunker Boozer Society or something

Stella brewed in the UK is renowned in the trade for turning usually mild mannered people into lunatics.

I've also known it called "A pint of what the F@%#& you looking at?"

The French made stuff doesn't do it.

Get a passport and spend extended time overseas..
You will find generally speaking all people are the same.
You will also find people with stamped passports are generally more well adjusted people due to purposefully throwing themselves in odd situations in foreign lands..it changes a person. So, judging an entire people (for better or worse) based on a visitor is a bit skewed as your meeting one of the better types to begin with.

I'm not stereotyping all Brits.....I know it was just an observation...
Although I'm American and I have seen our men turn from real guys (like my grandpa) to boys.....who love super heroes, and all other adolescent garbage....its a shame..

I do have a passport and I'm going in March to the UK.....

Think that depends on who your associating with overall. What makes a man a man is a good question for the 21st century though. For me, a traditionalist approach to gender differences is how I approach things, but not to the extent of being a sexist. Some would say that gender differences is an illusion..I disagree..even if it is, differences should be respected as it makes the world a bit more interesting than if everyone is the same

As far as super heros...well, who doesn't think Iron Man is awesome...but zombie stuff is far more interesting.
Again, you will find the "yobs" over there are equal to our idiots over here.

But I am sure you will enjoy your trip. Where abouts you going? Got your trip planned?

I'm a traditionalist too, for me personally I don't like gender reversal, I like a man to step up and provide for his family...and let women take care of the home and kids...it works for me anyways.....

As for super heroes ect...yeah in moderation its fine and dandy....however I have known too many men...who are more into childish things today, its like their mind never hit puberty....of course not all men are like this....but I've come across alot who are...

As for England, I'm going to fly into London, head out to Portsmouth meet some friends, maybe take the ferry to a few of the little islands....I'm not quite sure yet....but I know I will have a great time...
