> Funny story, related to beer & perceived value – years ago (actually a decade) I was at a New Years dance party on top of a hill in the middle of nowhere (The Gathering at Canan Downs) and parked beside us were some appropriately crusty looking German tourists who laughed at us for drinking (cheap to them) German beer, but they were drinking Steinlager, an exotic-to-them & cheap-to-us beer… Moral of the story? Branding can kiss my butt, good beer is good beer & what most makes a beer good is the context, not the marketing eg i LOVE Bintang because of the context in which it is usually consumed, and similarly I expect to thoroughly enjoy my share of Vailima in December!
