Going wild in the aisles - Volume 2
This weekend saw us embark on a second gruelling round of instore tastings in another of the UK's supermarket monoliths.
In between cracking open bottles of Paradox Isles of Arran, Trashy Blonde and Rip Tide, we were treated to a dose of what can only be decribed as 'the genius of the general public at large'.
Sit back, relax and adopt the necessary position when you hear 'brace, brace' as we unleash another of our top five quotes from the realm of the instore tasting.
5. *A pleasent American chap on the forgotten joys of home brewing* "I love craft beer, so much so I used to be really into home brewing. Then there was this one time I made a batch and everyone got sick. I decided never to home brew again. I'm also not allowed to live in that particular state anymore."
4. "If your beers were cheaper I'd buy half a dozen." "Why don't you just treat yourself to three then?" "Eh, goodbye."
3. "I saw a photo from your equity thing in the paper. Do I get to keep one of those punk models when I buy a share?" "I'm afraid not." "Do I get to keep you when I buy a share?" "No." "Am I scaring you?" "A little."
2. *Two men pushing a trolley loaded with cheap looking, brightly coloured alcopops take a swipe at Trashy Blonde* "Look at the label on this beer bottle - must be women's beer. No man who's a man drinks from a bottle with a purple label like that."
1. "I only drink beer from a can."
