    Lol the Mallorquins here probably would as well tbf. Although they have a tendency to detest anything thats not from the island. Mallorquin wine tends to be very strong flavoured and minimum 14% which is too much for my pansy pallete. Prefer beer anyway tbftbqfh :laugh:

    All sorts really. I like trying Craft and Real Ale's, but I also dont mind a session on smooth beers like John Smiths or Boddingtons. If it's hot weather I like a nice cold lager too.

    How about yourself?

    Since moving to Melbourne I’m like a kid in a sweet shop. Australia make some top wines and it’s as cheap as chips here, you can get a good standard bottle here for under £4.
    My favourite tipple at the moment is cab sauv from Coonawarra in SA, and there’s a rose here called Strawberry Fields which is lush.

    What is everybody's minimum price? - disregarding reductions, of course.

    Used to enjoy grabbing any 3/4 quid bottle for the bus ride home, but now won't go below £8/9 unless it has been reduced.

    It's not cooking wine you use a glass of the good stuff in food - it's the 2nd bottle after you've finished the nice wine that you used a glass of in the food - Campo is an acceptable follow on bottle :laugh:

    I mean i'll happily drink it in the UK, but if i'm in Spain i won't go near it as it's just not that great in comparison ;)

    Craft ales and real ales. Don't mind certain lagers on a hot day but steer well clear of the macro filth like carling, fosters and so on.

    Love Verdant, Cloudwater, Deya, Northern Monk. Not cheap but they consistently produce awesome beers. Incredibly innovative.

    I really like Montepulcianos, but many Italian or French wines will do for me.
