  3. No.
    The Brit Embassy has a staff bar called the Phoenix club. Occasionally, ex-pats are invited to it and they do have canned cider on those nights. Not sure if it is Strongbow. It's the same with Guinness and ales.
    Most ex-pats drink Stella (not Artois) and Sakara, both lagers and easily as good as European lagers.
    Around St. Patrick's, the Marriott Hotel bar (Harry's) will sell you a can of Guinness for about £12. Thieving bastuds.



     
  4. thank you, husband will not be happy!! He'll have to learn to like lager!!
     
  5. You could always do what I did and sneak some cider into your suitcase. Also, if you are lucky there are occasional ciders on sale in the Duty Free.

    The embassy pub nights normally have a stock of cider until about 30 minutes after I arrive!
     
  7. Yes, I was thinking about doing that! Thanks

    Probably promising. Almaty means 'full of apples' and has a tourist thingy advertised called 'Apple Town'. If not I'm sure some vodka and apple juice would be a reasonable substitute.
