There was a store in Edinburgh (which apparenlty is no more) that I used to go to once a week. Would have spent about 30min picking out 10 beers. "Nursing a semi" would have been a good description of my state of mind during my visit!

Goddamnit I am glad I am not the only one who does that. I spend so much time looking at beer at the Whip-in that they start looking at me funny. I end up spending $50 or more by the time I get out of there.

I miss it. Over here, unless I go to a bigger city, the gas stations and grocery stores are my only options, and they tend to carry 10-15 different beers at the most. Usually 3 or 4 are some sort of bitburger... Can't wait to hit some up again though. Spent about 30 minutes in the beer store in Amsterdam a few weeks back.

Hey Seefresh,
where in Germany are you? Can you get to Eindhoven easily? There's a place (possibly a chain) called " 't Drankurgels" (the 't is abbreviated from 'Het' = dutch 'the') and they have loads and loads of belgian beers, and the glasses to go with them.....
can give you directions to the one in Eindhoven if it helps..

3 hours 3 minutes from eindhoven (according to mapquest). Thanks for the suggestion, but I can be in Amsterdam in 4 hours flat so'd probably just go up there!!! I LOVE Amsterdam!

My distributor only has a small wall of micros and imports, but I still look like a deer in headlights when I see it. "Ooooh, they have ________! And ______! Dammit! What do I get?"

Sounds like Total Discount Liquors in Eldersberg
