The minority of people in my country drink beer. For me, I don't like it, and if I did, it could be such an experience to taste British beer. I can imagine a British-style pub or an Irish pub full of beers and drinkers, as I've heared British people drink a lot but ,of course, not as much as other European countries...!

I like to drink beers more than other alchoolic drinks like whisky or vodka. I can't fully trust people who never drink alchoolic drinks. I believe that people who drink alchool are more open to tell the truth.

In my country people usually meet in "cafés", there aren't pubs like the British ones.
In "cafés" we can have alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, tea, coffee or milk and eat some sandwiches and cakes. Portugueses drink lots of coffee.
When I go at London I usually go to a pub to drink beer because I like British beer more than Portuguese ones, it's not so alcoholic.

Hi! alcoholic drinks are forbidden in my country and also in my religion (Islam) so I haven't had any type of alcoholic drinks in my life. There aren't any pubs here and coffee shops have light drinks. I go to coffee shops or to the mountain with friends in order to relax.

I usually drink in some bars in BH city Brazil. It´s really cool there.

Well, interestingly enough , we have no pubs here in Sudan.I think the cause is that drinking alcohol is 1st prohibited by the law , 2nd socially is considered a very bad habit that ruin ones dignity .. partly because locally made alcoholic drinks called "mareesa , aragy, .. etc" are very very strong , just very few milliliters are enough to make your gait very unsteady .
so we rather have many restaurants. and it is very unlikely to find a street or mini road without a restaurant . most of friends meet each other there.

I have never gone to Pubs
I go to the beach to relax
