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.
Goose Island Honkers Ale. On draft. At the brewpub in Chicago.
A very fine beer, I recommend that every one try it.
I read that on the interwebs so it must be true.
But seriously Corona? I mean, that's NOT Bier.
I love these threads. A great distraction from all the depressing crap going on.
Negra Modelo is very good
That stuff is awesome
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.
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.
Wild guess, urine?
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 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.
New Glarus Spotted Cow is my new fave WI beer!
Yep. Spotted Cow is popular here. Good beer, especially if you can find it on tap at a pub.
The stuff was awesome!
I had a leinenkugeles red on tap
