I have a number of friends who claim that Stella Artois effects them in an
adverse manner. Basically, they reckon they get a lot more drunk on Stella
than on the same amount of any other lager/beer of the same alcohol content.
Not sure where most of you come from, but Stella has the nickname
"wifebeater" here in England, due to it's supposed propensity to incite
violence in it's drinkers. Personally, I don't find it effects me any
differently to beers of the same strength. Does anyone know if there really
is anything about it that would make it more potent than other beers? Or is
it, as I suspect, all in their minds?!
