There’re quite a lot of different kinds of beer in my hometown. I’m actually don’t like beer in glass bottles, I mean all that’s sold in stores. I more tend to take, so called, alive kind of beer which’s served at café or bars. We don’t have any pubs like in Britain and I can’t image what it’s like to spend time at a pub so as people go to bars.

In my country drinking wine and beer is not legal. After Islamic republic of iran drinking any alcholic drink was banned, so we haven't any bar and pub in my country. By the way many people don't like this rules and drink in their parties or alone at home.
Once I was in wedding ,all the people there were drunk . They were drinking too much, and all of them were dancing and all of them were happy . I think it is good to drink in a wedding but you shoudn't be drunk. you can be drunk in bar , but not in a wedding party.

Hi Everboy,
How is it going? Yes, Of course. there are a lots of place for drink alcohol. My countrys people prefer drink because of cheaper than other alcoholic drinks. The taxes are very high to alcoholic drinks and cigarettes. The beer İs cheapest. I don't like beer. it is taste too hot for me. I also prefer select drinks as Chivas Regal. I drank Bavaria 8.6 that kind of beer. İt has ½ 7.9 alcohol. I recommend it everybody just two beer enough for feel relax. I don't know british beers' names so I can't say anythıng about topic. I went to several pubs when I was a in Malta but I am not sure that is british pubs. "Alcohol is harmful to health" I agree ths statment. Bye for now.

Alcoholic drinks are unlawful in my country but I know many people who drink it.
In my opinion, I prefer healthy things and because of it, I don't drink any alcoholic drinks but it doesn't mean I don't like beer. I like any kind of beer but it must be non-alcoholic.
I've never been to the UK and I can't say anything about British pubs or beers.

We went to London for holiday in auguste we have just arrived to the town and we wanted to eat and that was very difficult to find a pub who accepte children just for est that was only 7 mm the evening
In France we can eat everywhere with children to the bar the pub ... children with parents...!we Will not give alcohol drink To our children and earlier in the evening i think it is a safety place ont with drunk people ...we were really bored and disappointed

Beer is very popular drink in my country. As for me I very like porter - real strong English beer!

Hi ,
I don´t like alcoholic drink and beer on special occasion I drink some wine, but I really like to go pub the environment are so great , talking with friends an so on

I like drinking beer. and I think I have tried British beer before. but I prefer to drink larger like Japanese beer. There are many pubs and bars in Japan. And especially the one is called HUB is very famous pub in my country. I can see the HUB everywhere in cities. The HUB looks British traditional style. And most of them are crowded with Japanese and foreigners. I don't often go there but it would be nice to hung out with foreigners there. I think I want to go to a real pub in Britain one day.

I used to drink a lot of alcohol when I was younger, but now I'm on a lot of medication so I can't I'm not supposed to, drink but now I only have two drinks on accessions like Christmas new year birthdays and our wedding anniversary.

I don't drink myself, but I tried a pub in Glasgow when I traveled UK last year. The waiter was kind enough to offer me a so delicious food! It was a bowlful of mussels, the soup of which was so, so tasty. I'll never forget the taste! To tell the truth, my wife and I are going to Britain again, so I'll try beer this time!
