Math for geologists

Because ultimately, everything in our science comes down to beer.

I think I can follow that kind of math! :D

Now that's useful math. Probably worth pursuing a proposal to experimentally determine in which cases this math is true to create a more generalized model.

Or just drink the beer. That would be simpler.

So, do they contract-brew Dos Equis in Australia or is it shipped from Mexico?

Usually when I have a Mexican beer, it is Dos Equis or Negra Modelo. They also have a dark beer Dos Equis Oscura and a Tres Equis (I am not sure if that is sold in the U.S. or not). And if I still lived in El Paso, it would be too dangerous to go over the bridge to get some XXX unless it was in broad daylight.

Dos Equis is imported- I'm assuming that it is the same brew bottled for export to the US, because the bottle is ounces, not ml (although the label has a translation).

According to the fine print, it is
"brewed and bottled by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma S. A. de C. V."

Dos equis is moderately hard to find in Australia.

Four ex is brewed and bottled in Milton, Queensland, Australia, and is one of the country's more popular mid-strength beers.

Having never tried the XX beer, is it better or worse than Fourex (not that better would be hard...)? If so, is it two good stubbies make a bad tallie?
