Cheers Lego! There's something wrong with your beer there though. It seems to be broken. Perhaps it needs replacing?

Depends how you look at.......an empty beer means beer consumption took place.....and that is good!

So what was it that you poured this time Lego?
I'm an extreme stout/porter lover here :mrgreen:
Like Founders breakfast stout a lot these days, it's a freakin shame that I have to import it myself though.
Only got 2 left now from my case of 24 :cry:
The alcohol laws in sweden is totally f*cked up as you might know.

Fredrik informs
"Sweden has a government alcohol monopoly called Systembolaget for sale of all beverages stronger than 3.5% by volume. Minimum purchase age at Systembolaget is 20 years. Restaurants and bars with proper permission can serve alcohol to anyone who is at least 18 and not severely drunk, though many nightclubs voluntarily require a minimum age at the door above 18 (usually 20 or 23, occasionally up to 30)

Beer is legally divided into three classes. Class I (maximum 2.25%), called lättöl ("light beer"), is sold without restrictions (although shops often set their own age restrictions). Class II (up to 3.5%), called folköl ("people's beer"), is sold in regular stores, but with the minimum purchase age of 18. Class III, starköl ("strong beer", over 3.5%) is sold only in Systembolaget stores.[3]

Beverages are taxed by content of alcohol, heavier than in most other countries. The tax on vodka (40%) is SEK 200.56/litre, on Wine (14%) SEK 22.08/litre and on beer (4.5%) SEK 6.615/litre (2007). Beer with 2.8% alcohol or less is exempt from tax, except VAT. The VAT is 12% (food tax) for beverages sold in shops having up to 3.5% alcohol, and 25% above that, and at restaurants.

The import quota from other EU countries is unlimited for personal use. Due to the taxes many Swedes supply themselves in Estonia or Germany. Limited rations of duty free shopping is allowed on the ferries between Sweden and Finland, provided they dock at Åland, which is an autonomous part of Finland, and has a special treaty with the EU.

Moonshining is common in rural areas."

If you guys like Goose Island you gotta try the new imp-stout: NIGHTSTALKER

Unless you are a commercial brewer you can only do it for yourself yes.

3.6% is strong?

Wow.

So, is the problem that Systembolaget just doesn't carry the good choices? For example, here in Pennsylvania we have fairly strict rules as well, but the beer stores, and the state liquor stores have fantastic selections so while it's a hassle, I can usually get the beer/wine/booze I'm looking for.

Yepp, they do have a good selection of to-order brands and beers,
But then you must buy at least a case of 24 beers.
And if you wanna find the real good stuff, like microbreweries, you have to import yourself thru a beer importer and pay loads of cash for shipping and import tax

Yep, Founders BS is mighty good!
The babe and I polished off a four pack while raking the leaves in the yard yesterday.
I gotta walk 'round to the store and pick up more. :lol:

Yes I have! It's tremendously good. Hard to come by though, at least for me here in the northeast US...
