i've observed recently a new trend in jaksa: punters drinking beer straight from the bottle (large). for some reason, this annoys me. i mean, it looks so uncouth. what's wrong with using a glass, anyway? is there something about drinking straight from a bottle that is inherently better?

no. this is in restaurants/bars. you don't have to do the washing up in places like that, unless, of course, you left your wallet at home.

Those who drink from the large bottles say it tastes better and fresher because glasses in certain establishments may be poorly washed or warm. But some nasty rust-like grime can accumulate under the caps of those large Bintangs. Drinking from the large bottle is fine at a party.

By the way, Way to disprove the stereotype that JakChat is populated by losers who argue about cheap beer. (selalu sempoyongan)

yeah, ok. at parties it doesn't really matter, i guess. especially if it is one of Piss Salon's parties, where it's almost compulsory to be uncouth.

i was really referring to high-class restarants and bars such as are found in jalan jaksa. such uncouth behaviour is inexcusable, IMHO.

but does the beer *really* taste better straight from the bottle? or is it just an excuse to look like a beer-swiller just in from kuta?

my thinking exactly, capt. jalan jaksa has gentrified, and higher standards of behaviour are now expected.

Alternatively, I have two flagons of claret and a double helping off curried turtle!

Why dont you join me! I can assure you: it's no holds barred with us at the annual communion-wine tasting.

These fine wines can only be imbibed by the neck....

Fine wines ? you buggers wouldn't know the difference between a good Shiraz and fanta merah mixed with mansion house and kecap manis.

And will you stop imbibing.

few bottles of Abbot's Lobster Scrumpy should do the trick. Or Scruttocks Olde Original, with the twigs and the bits of bird dung still in it. I bet Cap'n M. is a member of CAMRA and wears a cardigan whilst stroking his beard.

I can just hear him now! Classic CAMRA Chat up line # 1

"In that case, my little puddin' of delight, let's beat about the bush no longer. I know I'm only a bluff old cove with no legs and a beard you could lose a badger in, but if you'll partake in this fine Theakstons Special Scrote with me, I'm willing to befuddle your fuddles all night long"

Have you let finished having a go at me yet? Do you think I am some sort of antiquity like Dilli and the other old boy?

As it happens I am 'ceedingly partial to a few pints of Speckled Hen/Abbot/Ruddles County (mighty good that is too)/Fullers ESB , in fact any decent beer , not namby pamby drinky out of the bottle while trying to look tough beer .
