British people...Is Cider a common drink in ....err....England/Great Britan?!
So we ended up at an 'irish' one, where they had little placard things explaining how 'Irish car bombs' and 'black and tans' are not drinks you should order in Ireland...or that Irish ppl dont drink them or something. which I get that the names are not exactly PC. But then this guy next to me asked what I was drinking and I told him cider. he told me that many bars in [Great Britan] I guess he meant dont even serve cider b/c they think it makes ppl beligerant drunks b/c it has more alcohol in it......I thought it was like 5%, that's like a budweiser here, and you don't see bars not serving budweiser......
He was NOT british and I didn't ask whether he had been there ever,......so I was wondering...
I work in a pub in the UK and can confirm that we most certainly do serve cider and it's a very common drink. I always have trouble finding it abroad and am pleasantly surprised when I do find it (cheap, and I hate beer!)
Happy cider drinking!
I'm English and work in a pub
Cider is the teenagers drink of choice.
Strong Bow being the most prevalent, Cider IS served in every pub in the UK, that man doesn't know what he's talking about.
I'm English and I've been drinking Cider since I was 15.
I think so
