We've had our Russian trolls in the past, but don't get me wrong, I personally would like to see a resurgent Russia, western-aligned, member of NATO.

Well if I was a Russian soldier stationed is Siberia I would be mighty interested in getting that beer too.

Ironman your idea of a stable western aligned Russia inside of NATO is comendable but getting to that point could take some doing.

Russian Military priorities are:
1) creating missiles, which could put into a coffin all countries, who will attack Russia;
2) creating air defence rockets to protect russian sky;
3) training special forces soldiers, who will fight agains terrorists.
Mind - all this weapon will be used only for defence.

A follow up story... (Yay they rescued it!!!!) :)

Army deployed in beer rescue


MOSCOW, Russia --Russian troops have retrieved 10 tons of beer trapped under Siberian ice, the Itar-Tass news agency has reported.

The truck carrying the beer sank when trying to cross the frozen Irtysh river, near the Siberian city of Omsk, around 2,200 km (1,400 miles) from Moscow.

The driver and his partner managed to escape, leaving the beer-laden truck.

The rescue team of six divers, 10 workers and a modified T-72 tank from the Emergencies Ministry managed to save the load after a week-long operation.

They pulled the truck to an ice hole, opened the doors, and managed to pull out the kegs and bottles of beer.

But as they were ready to retrieve the truck, the rope tore, leaving the truck on the bottom of the river, deputy head of the Cherlak district administration Vasily Yatkovsky told Tass.

The Rosar brewery in Omsk, part of the Interbrew Belgian group, says it is ready to take the beer back.

With temperatures around minus 27 degrees Celsius (minus 17 degrees Fahrenheit) in the area, the brewery told Tass the beer was still in good condition.

Tass quoted the brewery as saying it will sell the beer as a rarity, but with a discount.

The British like their beer at room temperature, except the old 'Empire hands' who love beer Chilled. It is too hot in the Tropics to have beer otherwise, I presume.

I too like it at room temperature. Brings out the 'body' so to say.

Bodies are best savoured when hot!:D

How do the Germans like their beer? They guzzle quiet a lot. The Oktoberfest barmaids are seen balancing four huge tankards each as they move around to serve. Surely that could not be chilled.

Ich nehme bier gern.

My only trip to a genuine German beerfest was short (i think) and i can't remember the temperature of the beer. This is due to them selling lots of beer, and me drinking huge amounts of free beer (the best tasting kind) courtesy of a very large software company.

The girls were nice, blimey they are strong carrying all that beer. They have a fierce grip. Ahem

Where was i? Oh yes. Well Germans like lager (this i remember from more sober trips) and that type of beer is chilled. Their alt(sp?) beer is served warm.

Ofcourse beer at october fest can be chilled .They keep beer in casks under pressure and when one pours beer, pressure is relased cooling liquid in this way
Germans would never drink warm beer(awfull) they are realy great beer lovers,and take care of it all.

Just my personal opinion, but beer sux. I prefer chilled vodka, but maybe that's just in my genes. At my brothers Bar-Mitzvah I saw my Polish grandma and great-grandma doin vodka shots without a care in the world. My great grandma is 85 years old...

Warm beer is gross, the only thing that should be drank at that temperature is wine. Beer is great served ice cold on a hot summer's day...

Vodka is okay too, but I'd prefer a jack daniel's or something like that.

Back in the olden daze, when I drank, I loved hot sake. Allways thought beer was "P", warm or cold. Sorry for the interruption. ;)
