$8 for a 6 of Red Stripe??? WOW!!! We used to get then for $.25 a bottle (Ino joke) at our local bar.

If I am not mistaken, Red Strip is the one that has the indent on the bottom of the bottle. You can use one bottle to open another. Just a bottle on top of the bottle you want to open. The bottle cap will fit perfectly in the indent. Then twist.

The Jamaican Red Stripe? Amazing! I didn't know the thing about the bottom of the bottle. I'm gonna have to conduct an $8 investigation soon........

On our honeymoon in Jamaica, that is the only beer they served. I think it is a pretty low end beer, but it is probably my favorite low end beer. I have no problem at all in knocking those back. They have a pretty good taste for a mass produced product.

Gosh. I hope there's an Irish DC member to put in a good word for Guinness. I've had glasses of Guinness that have been sublime, and that's outside Ireland, where it's said to taste even better.
I like many kinds of beer, but Guinness is in a class by itself. It's great enough here in the US, but in Ireland . . .

I tend towards the dark side (in beer preferences, of course). To quote a good friend and fellow beer lover, "Never trust a beer you can see through!"

Well to be perfectly honest, this was back in the late 90's I think. The Uno's that we used to go to. They were having a big push at the bar. That summer they were going to have 100 different beers on stock. They had to make room for all those beers and since Red Strip was not going to be one they stocked anymore they were trying to get rid of it. My buddy and I were friends with the waitress (that did not get us a break on the price though) and she told us he and I were the only ones who drank the stuff. They probably would have given it to us for a nickel if we asked

Some beer is okay. Some tastes like bottled. . . uh, urine. Lol. But I recently tried a chili recipe that called for a bottle of dark beer. It came out so good! It was also made with real steak cut into small cubes, not ground beef. Yummmmmm.

Just checked the leftover Red Stripe bottle from yesterday. Nope. No indent. As a matter of fact, no twist-off either.
