It's hard for me to drink a lot of beer because it fills me up. I'm much better at handling spirits. However, I still have managed eight in quick time. And a good flowing night I aim to be drinking a pint every thirty minutes.

That's a British pint, not American. American pints are 16 liquid ounces and British pints are 20 liquid ounces. Not only that but America liquid ounces are 4% smaller than British liquid ounces.
The Bitish beer definitely filled me up much faster than the American beer. Plus it is obviously stronger. When I first got to England, I got pretty toasted on 1 pint. 3 pints would typically get me pretty legless. I don't recall ever drinking more than 3 pints in one sitting, that was plenty for me.
I used to be in a pub darts team, bad news for trying to keep slim. Ten pints every Tuesday and Friday followed by a Chinese or Indian down the takeaway. :oops:
Yesterday, on one of my "stops" I met two (50 59) Britons from somewhere South-East, the one was a Lorry driver and I drank some whiskeys with them and talked about various shits. They were cool guys, they said they're here for a weekend off.

Most funny was "Wheo did yea pucket op yo English?"
I normally go about twice a week. Me and wife go on wednsdays normally have like a drink and walk home. Then on Friday's we go with all of our friends. I normally drink Krystal Weizen or Pils.
