    Yes. Not as much as beer as you guys do, but still.

    Anyways I prefer vodka BTW Are you planning to send me some german liquour ?
    Do you have some favorite liquor?
    I don't this kind of alcohol. Too much headache on the day after. That's not really nice when you have 3 children. [xx(]

    Anyway, given the choice between beer and wine, I prefer wine. However, when I drink a beer, I prefer the ones from the country where our old man (Mirko) now lives: Czech Republic. Budweiser is really special.

Here in Germany I would say, to get a good quality you have to spend some 10-15 Euro on a bottle. And even more when you don't like the "e" in Whiskey.

    Interesting!<br />Not completely sure, but I think here this is regulated by the federal government and not by the local government. Though I can be wrong, since I've given up trying to figure out who is responsible for what in Germany anyway.

    I don't drink alcohol much but I do like czech beers too. Here it looks like that every small village have its own beer brand. I like Pilsner (from Plzen) and Cerne Krusovice ("Black Krusovice").

    I surely agree to Adriaan, its one of the most strick country, when i had gone in june-july i was just waiting to come back to dubai...

    The worse part about that visit, that i couldnt even see the face of any girls... all the acents are covered.. [B)]
    So, does that mean, that Dubai is sort of liberal compared to other Arabic countries?
