It's either a Guiness or a Newcastle Brown for me. Fortunately, both are availible on this side of the Atlantic.
Found myself drinking more Newkey Broon last weekend over here, than Imanaged in 30 odd years in the UK. ( 2 bottles )

Why don't they make a decent Zider in the US ? No wonder we got rid of the colonies 220 years ago

I went to a lunchtime leaving do at work the other day, and they had 'cider'. Well, actually they had sparkling apple juice that claimed to be cider on the label. I almost spat it onto the floor!

One word answer to your question: Prohibition.

I think that's the main reason why the US has odd laws about drinking and alcholic bevvies.

A daily glass, or two, or three ...... of Strongbow cider, or failing that Dry Blackthorn.... made sure I had lots and lots while in England recently - beginning to miss it already though
