    Servus Luc ! As long as they sell Wieselburger Bier I am a happy shopper in Wien ! I live in England and we cant buy it over here, so I end up buying a couple of bottles to bring home in the suitcase on my twice yearly trips to Vienna. I am sad, I know. Occasionally you can buy Zipfer here by the bottle but Austrian beers are a rarity indeed. So Billa, Zielpunkt, Spar, Meinl, whoever.. be aware the Mancunian beer monster is back in Wien on the 25th March, on the hunt for her fave Niederoesterreich brew….
    Prost !

    hey kazmac. yes for beer, wurstsemmel, aqua minerale, tomatoe concentrate etc i also go to billa.
    you must be a strange drinker, being a fan of zipfer beer. :) i prefer whiskey, or at least vodka.

    Hi Luc, Not Zipfer, heavens no. Lieber Wieselburger bitte ! Wieselbuger is very gassy, similar to what we Brits call lager. The nearest I get here in Britain is Fosters, the Australian brew. I’m like the rest of the world, enjoy a beer or two but wont say no to a Jack and coke or a nice bottle of Blaufrankish. .. though not all at the same time…cheers ! Kaz

    i also heard redbull should be good for the heart. they already sell it in sixpacks, i always want to have one at home

    Redbull and vodka is what the teenage British kids drink, because it gets them drunk quickly. I tried it once to see if it did “give you wings…” nah, just sickly consumerism.

    ah yes. they drink it everywhere, not only the kids :).. i was talking about redbull without vodka, which actually gives you wings until you die. did you already try those little aubergines with curry?

    i think the variation between individual branches is quite high, but the billa near my home is definitely strictly for those days when it’s 5 minutes until closing time and i can’t make it to a proper store. their gravest mistake is that they regard price tags as some sort of funny decoration. they are all over the place, but only half of them anywhere near the respective products. fun!

    The Billa in Ia┼či, Romania (near Moldova) is unique. It serves as a rather nice and clean supermarket (where I found a Wella product missing from all four major markets in Chisinau) and doubles as a meeting place for Romanians who operate a van service between Iasi and Chisinau.
