Beer at mcDonald's?

Post by Jelmo » Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:53 am

Recently a group of Dutch people (now 11539 members) started a petition for making Mc Donald's sell beer. In other European countries you can, apparently, buy beer with your 'meal'.
So many questions pop into my head... How is this situation in the rest of the world: Do they sell beer at mcDonald's in your country? Which brand? Do you even go to eat there? And does beer actually combine with their almost cold, way too salty, not-so-crispy fries?

When I was in Italy the only reason we went to a McDonald's was because they served beer there. I forget what kind it was but I remember it came in a glass. It made my Big Mac seem classy.

"Back in the day" when I was still a student (well, until last year actually) I've visited McDonald'ses all over the country quite some times. Me and my buddies would go eat there before (and sometimes after) nights out. When it was after the drinking we would be walking in near closing time, smelling of beer, and proposing deals like 'how about all those 8 cheesburgers for 5 euros?'.
And replying at the counter with "no I'll go sit at a table" when they asked "Do you want to eat it here?" Childish, maybe, but good times, good times :) No beer at the Mac though.

I believe(?) you can get beer (& wine) at McDonald's in Germany; at least I seem to remember doing so back in the mid-1980s.

On those rare occasions when I venture to farther shores, I find that there are so many restaurants and things to try that are new, that I lack for time to investigate fast food franchises. Even if they serve beer.

What could be faster food than herring sammiches? They don't even bother to cook the herring. It would slow them down!

On the other hand, I wish the US didn't have such a hard-on for banning beer nearly everywhere.
Be safe everyone.

McDonalds in Hawaii has guava juice, which can be converted to Pruno.

Somewhere (India?) McD's has lamb burgers... sign me up for a couple of those. And a McBeer.

Let's be serious, at least six McBeers. Can I get a carrier for those? Thanks.

"a five dollar shake? That's milk and ice cream? They don't put bourbon in it or anything?"

Do they add salt to the beer too?

Jim, the old as shit but cool-as-hell drunk at my local bar does it. Maybe it's iodine deficiency? Or they love the taste of salty things? *giggle*
