So after the month's 7th all nighter across the pond, my posterior finds itself waking up in Stockholm, where a beer in a bar is about $10........
Plan B in that situation is to find the local hootch store. In a shopping center I not only find a plethora of vendors with cheese, sausages etc, there is also a liquor store.
Interesting concept. All that is available is on display, behind glass, with a card with a description, in Swedish alas, and a stock number. One display with white wine, one red and one beer. When you figure out what you want you go to one of many "tellers" and order 2 2345's, one 13223 etc etc.
Maredsous......(BIG bottle) $5.50.......I'll take two.
And of course some local tasties.....this guy:http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/3065/7885/?ba=bark
Nam nam NAM! Please sir, may I have another SIR!
I think I will survive the 48 hours here under $100.......in STYLE. That's good, VERY good.
