Free Ganzberg Beer in the Streets of Cambodia (if you're quick)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

:lol: Yeah, it's ghastly stuff, although I tried Tuborg recently and that was even worse.
Tuborg, eh. Europe's finest. Beer Lao is German brewed, I met the fat old kraut brewmeister who made it. Some yeas ago. The Chinese prefer Heineken.

I tend to believe there's a direct ratio between how bad the beer is and how much they have to promote it.
True that: Foster's, Tuborg, Heineken, Budweiser all fall into that category.

It's pretty easy to drink 20+ bottles of all the ones you mentioned for people in their 20s but even beer Lao would be hard to drink nonstop all night.

They might make more money because of this which lets them advertise more.

Try drinking teds vs little creatures (or even coopers) and it's easy to see.

Damn brother James, you're starting to talk like an American. We only have one criteria, does it get the job done ?

I am not drinking beer at the moment but if a real beer like a Little Creatures Pale Ale showed up now, I'd make an exception. Though very unlikely in this somewhat remote town of Chau Doc. Not even Saigon Special......

The Chinese in my Cambodain neighborhood prefer Budweiser apparently from the numerous empty boxes.

It's pleasing to know that you guys are only now just understanding how bad beer tastes . I haven't tasted any of them but you cannot beat the taste of good old distilled water, my favourite drink.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
