Re: Why the British drink warm beer

: I've never been to Great Britain, so I can't say if this is true:
: I've been told the British drink their beer at a temperature
: which is just slightly below room temperature. When I asked why
: they would do that, I was told "They have Lucas
: refrigerators.

: If I ever need to do a business study I'd like to do one on Lucas's
: survivability. I can't understand how they can still be in
: business. What with all the bad word-of-mouth advertising that
: they have received over the decades, the loss of automotive and
: motorcycle companies they supplied, bad economic times, and all
: these jokes and insults. How'd they do it?

Hi. Paul.
As a Brit. I can say I've never seen or heard of a Lucas fridge. Haven't seen that name for ages.
Don't know if they still exist, so you could be right about the word of mouth!
Bill's right about getting more flavor (look I've just lapsed into US spelling!) from beer just below room temp.
Mostly our summers aren't so hot, so beer temperature isn't such an issue.
We do tend to drink lagers colder. Personaly, I still prefer a good Warmish!!? pint of bitter.
