Beer: April's Fools Edition

Unlike politics, beer is far from moot when one is on holiday...

As one still is, and it also happens to be April's Fools day, I've decided to break away from all the fun and games and tell you about some good beer. Only, sadly - very sadly, there really is none to be found in these parts. It's lager, lager, lager, as far as the eye can see, and as far as you may be prepared to walk to find some. Not really surprising as it is plum brandy that has made the region (in)famous. Unfortunately, the stuff is too strong and not really refreshing especially if you'd like a drink for the long run. And on holiday, it will always be the long run. So, is there anything that can be done? No, not really, apart from repeating the following mantra:
