Corona is tops in beer survey
thesun ^ | 26 Jun 2009 | RHODRI PHILLIPS

Posted on 06/25/2009 3:53:32 PM PDT by JoeProBono

CORONA Extra was yesterday voted the world's favourite beer in a poll of more than two million Facebook users.

The Mexican-brewed lager - usually served with a segment of lime - topped the list with more than 645,000 votes.

It easily beat Dutch favourite Heineken, which received 594,475 votes, and Ireland's Guinness which came third with 396,276.

The independent poll was launched by the social networking site.

Chris Lewis, director of Corona's British distributor Wells and Young's, said: "It is a premium beer and deserves to be the Facebook favourite as it is among the world's biggest selling beer brands."

The top five beers were: 1. Corona Extra, 645,445 votes; 2. Heineken, 594,475 votes; 3. Guinness Draught, 396,276 votes; 4. Stella Artois, 350,825 votes; 5. Budweiser, 343,493 votes.

The truth is, beer is safe(r) to drink. The alcohol generated during the fermentation process kills most bacteria.

In colonial days (North American), making beer was a form of water purification. Even children drank the low alcohol beer that was made from the mash after the first batch of "good" beer.

I imagine that if advertising budgets were ranked, they’d reflect a similarity.

There is absolutely no accounting for some folk’s taste in beer, politics or women exceptin’ for generous helpings of flat out stupid.

1. Newcastle Brown Ale - I could easily drink this one any day of the week.

Try cooking with it. Take a six pack of Newcastle. Pour one in to a slower cooker, along with a cup of orange juice and a nice piece of flank steak. Let it go about six hours, then shred the meat and let it sit in the liquid another hour. Serve with the other five Newcastles.

I did it a few weeks ago and it was amazing. We served it on tortillas with a fresh vinegar-based slaw. I tried to make it again a week later, but didn’t have the Newcastle, so I used a lager. Not the same thing at all. I might try with Guinness next time.

They are very nice extra cold, with Cuervo magarita mix poured in instead of lime. Also rather tasty with Limon Rum.

Tells you how old the average facebook user is; Corona is not good beer.

Dead center on target.

The average 20 something (or less) does not know that beer turns to skunk-pi$$ due to light; that very same light that other breweries cancel out by using dark glass bottles.

There is a solution to fix that bad taste. Anyone want to guess what it is? That's right! To get rid of that bad flavor you add... lime juice!

Carona is beer for liberals. They are ignorant enough to believe it is trendy to pay too much for spoiled beer and limes, and actually think they are trendy doing it because the TV tells them so.

Corona is pretty awful stuff. The only beer out there that apparently needs a lime wedge to make it drinkable.

My vote for best beer is Pilsner Urquell.

Not directly from the tap mind you. But you know how they make Corona don't you? Mexican nationals get drunk on Tequila and piss into Corona bottles.

I read that on the interwebs so it must be true.

But seriously Corona? I mean, that's NOT Bier.

A great American beer, Yuengling! For a lager, Yuengling pours pretty dark and has a nice thick head. In my opinion, it is one of the best American lagers, especially when compared to Budweiser, Coors or Miller.

Ahh man you know I was just kidding right? It just amuses me that people always use that phraseology. It’s not my favorite beer but I wouldn’t turn one down if it was 95deg. and it was ice cold.

I once drank Pilsner Urquell on tap when I was on leave in West Germany. It was my favorite beer, with Budweiser Budvar on tap a close second.

I haven't either. But I don't call it beer. It's um yellow, carbonated water.

Beer might have been invented by the Sumarians, but the Europeans perfected it. Probably their greatest contribution to mankind.

The only time I’ve ever drunk Egyptian Stella was when I vidited the Soviet Union in 1972. Stella tasted fabulous—but only when compared to Moskovskoye, the local Soviet brew. It seems the Egyptians sent their beer to Russia in exchange for military hardware, since they had nothing else to export.

Try cooking with it. Take a six pack of Newcastle. Pour one in to a slower cooker, along with a cup of orange juice and a nice piece of flank steak. Let it go about six hours, then shred the meat and let it sit in the liquid another hour. Serve with the other five Newcastles.

I agree! Try this:

3 lbs stew beef - braised
2 lbs onions sliced thin
2 garlic cloves through a garlic press
3 Tablespoons flour
1.5 cups chicken broth
3/4 tsp thyme
1 bay leaf
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 bottle NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE

Braise the beef, remove. Saute the onions with 1/4 tsp salt, add garlic and flour. Add chicken broth, BEER, and everything else. Bake in covered pot (dutch oven) at 300 for 1.5 to 2 hours.
Sofa king good! Known as Belgian Beef Stew or for our more refined members Carbonnade a la Flamande.

I made this one night as a challenge from my Salvation Army Captain to see what I could do with canned beef. Man, I was hitting the gravy all night.

Newcastle is great. Even tastes good at room temp.
