The students were excited the other day about a new beer that they tried, "The name is Colt 45!" They reported. Yeah, I've heard of it. They should also try Red Horse if they like that. Red Horse is made by San Miguel. A lot of alcohols here in the Philippines are made by San Miguel, they have kind of a monopoly. Anyway, Koreans love alcohol, they are called the Irish of the East. I have no experience with these guys that would break that stereotype. They love it here in the Philippines because alcohol is cheap. The prices in Korea for alcohol are high with the exception of soju. Soju is like a nasty gin/vodka. It's an interesting beverage, it makes people talkative. I was laughing when they said they liked Colt 45, because I don't think they know the difference between beer and malt liquor, all beers are not created equal. Of course they would love malt liquor.
