Hello everyone,

Well, in the context of my country, nowadays lots of people drinks beer. Some people drinks it because they really like it and some people drinks it just to be on trend but I have never tasted any kind of beer either that is British Beer or other ordinary beer. In my view drinking alcohol in limit is not bad but some people drink a lot which I really don't like.

I have never been to a British Style Pubs but if I get a chance I would love to be there. In my country most of people love to hang out with family so they visit the restaurants where they can enjoy with their family.

hi everyone ...

Hello Dear
I have never gone to pubs before and unfortunately pubs, bar, disco., beer and wine are unallowed and forbidden In Iran. But most of people like wine and alcoholic beverages. So they drink those stealthy.

How are you all
I have got another view of alcoholic drinks based in my religion (Islam)
Alcoholic drinks are forbidden in my country, so there aren't any pubs or bars and there aren't any type of alcoholic drinks in al my life.
We usually get together (me and my friends) in cafes or in clubs.
I created English club called "English Lovers Club" we meet (me and my friends) twice a month.
It is a good place to practice English language.
with best regards.

In Bucharest we have all sorts of pubs and cafes, even Irish pubs. You can find them in the old town (the historic centre of Bucharest) and also in the newer parts of the city. Our favorite drink is the lagger beer, especially when we watch football games, or an important tennis match played by our Simona Halep. We also enjoy good wines and all sorts of spirrits. When we celebrate an important event in our lives (like a birthday, or a big career success) we preferto drink tequila shots with our friends. And everything it's affordable because our currency it's still the romanian leu. So yeah, I live in an awesome country that I'm proud of !

In Indonesia, alcohol drinks are served in cafes and night clubs. One can not sell alcohol illegally without permit. People who drinks alcohols will be seen negatively by others because they harm your body and cause you to act uncontrollable. I once took a sip of beer belong to my friend. I can't stand the smell, and the taste wasn't very good, too. I prefer strawberry juice.
