    Beer simply becomes a nasty lump of yeast with age. And some of us prefer beer to wine.

    Ahhh... don't be too hard on little Phleggie now Jennifer.... his reasoning powers are limited as a male after all... ...

    Don't you get what he's trying to say? Wine = fine women. Beer = butch, dykes. Phleggie preferring the latter apparently.

    Unfortunately my choice (see below) is already taken so I guess I will have to continue to toil for a living. Life isn't fair.

    It is actually easier than that: It's

    Wine = gay
    Beer = not for girlies

    Unfortunately Australians know nothing about beer (Foster = biohazard) and not much more about wine (even the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon does not even come close to Chilean or Italian ones).

    What's this obsession you have with Fosters Phleg-o-rama?? Not a very popular beer in Australia anymore as far as I know. (Which obviously isn't very far, being a girlie and all... ...)

    (even the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon does not even come close to Chilean or Italian ones).
    Never heard of it. Could be cat's piss for all I know.

    Maybe it is YOU who doesn't know about wines. That wine you posted a pic of isn't a Texas wine.

    I'll tell you a secret: It's from California.

    Here are some websites on wine in Texas.
    http://www.agr.state.tx.us/wine/
    http://www.winesocietyoftexas.org/
    http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/walter/wine/texas.html

    You may find some of it interesting:

    "The Texas wine industry’s growth has been phenomenal over the last two years, with the number of wineries increasing from 54 to 85 during that short time. Currently, 19 additional wineries are pending state approval bringing the number of wineries to 104. The Texas wine industry is fortunate to have such a committed group of talented people striving for the same goal - producing and selling great Texas wines". Texas Department of Agriculture

    "DID YOU KNOW? With a total economic impact of more than $170 million a year, the Texas wine industry is deeply rooted in the Lone Star State’s future. Wine operations extend from the Panhandle to the sandy shores of the Gulf Coast. Currently, Texas has more than 85 wineries and is the nation’s fifth-largest wine producing state." Texas Department of Agriculture

    "Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913), the internationally known horticulturist from Denison, Texas developed over 300 varieties of new grape varieties specifically for the American South and Southwest. He is perhaps best known for his work in fighting the phylloxera epidemic of the late nineteenth century, which nearly wiped out the world’s vineyards. His solution – grafting Vitis vinifera onto certain resistant native rootstocks from Texas – earned him the Chevalier du Mérite Agricole in the French Legion of Honor and numerous accolades from around the world. Munson belonged to and was honored by a number of viticultural and scientific associations and was considered a leader in the new scientific movement of the time for his cutting-edge work in breeding plant varieties, some of which are still important in modern viticulture and research." http://www.tvmunson.org/
