 >Isn't there a major brand called Falstaff?

"Major" is perhaps a misnomer; once the fourth most popular beer in
American, Falstaff production in 2000 had dropped to 20,000 barrels a
year, and it's probably less than that now.  The beer is not routinely
available in any 7-11 or corner liquor store; there's a website
(operated by an enthusiast, not the brewer, but with the brewer's
encouragement) that lists places around the US where it can still be
purchased.  I haven't drunk any for years, but remember it as not
actually very Falstaffian--one of those standard American lagers, though
it had its fans.

Beerily,
Dave Evett

There's quite a good one -- in the UK at least -- called Monty Python's
Holy Ale.
