MontereyJohn from Salinas, California, United States

LOL!!! Yes, and you guys bought our beloved Anheiser-Busch (Budweiser) last year. A sure sign of the "end times." :)

Do the sell asprin there or anything besides booze?

Fun capture.

26 Jan 2010 6:01am

@MontereyJohn: Hahaha indeed Budweiser was really missing in our "collection" ! No they don't sell aspirin BUT.... on the other side of the street you can find one of the oldest drug stores we have (pharmacy as we call it here). FYI (it's NOT a photo I took but found it on Flickr : ) if you wanna see this beautiful building. Many thanks for your comment John, I'm glad you like it :)

Vert Pomme from Montreuil Sous Bois, France

Wahou quelle richesse de bières !!! Cette façade doit être superbe de nuit quand tous les néons sont allumés.
Très bonne journée.

26 Jan 2010 6:04am

@Vert Pomme: Tu as raison, une fois la nuit tombée cela doit être assez "flashy" ! Oui oui, la Belgique a aussi de bonnes choses à part les trop célèbres frites.. nous avons les bierres, le chocolat (plus à mon gout je dois avouer hihihi) et plein plein d'autres choses :) Merci pour ton commentaire, je te souhaite une excellente journée :)

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

very fun shot! the first thing my eyes went to was Coca-Cola. As a life-long Coke drinker I stopped buying it here in the US because of the high-fructose corn syrup they put in it. But last summer in France I got to drink Coke made with sugar-the taste of my childhood. I now buy Coke in bottles imported from Mexico when I can.

26 Jan 2010 9:43pm

@Julie Brown: That's very funny... I'm a life-long Coke drinker too and I always thought that the "real taste" was only available in the US !!! When I was in Florida, in 1999 I didn't mention any difference. Now with what you're telling me I guess I should be happy with what we have here :) Many thanks for your comment and also for the information provided ! Have a nice day :)

Nyx Robey from Berkeley, United States

Wow. Busy busy busy! Corporations need to learn how to break through the clutter. haha Great composition!

26 Jan 2010 11:55pm

@Nyx Robey: Hehe :) Many thanks for your sweet comment Nyx, much appreciated !

Nance E from United States

Great picture, Tamara! A cornucopia of beers, but did I see 'Coca cola' on there too? Still, makes me want a beer too.

27 Jan 2010 1:08am

@Nance E: You'll find anything you want there :) Many thanks for your comment Nance, I'm glad you like it !

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

A very interesting image! An amazing quantity of signs and beers!!

27 Jan 2010 1:08am

@Scott F. Schilling: Indeed... beer-paradise ! Many thanks for your comment Scott, much appreciated :)

Yonatan from Bronx, United States

Now that looks like my kind of place!

Waouw il y en a de la pub sur cette façade, une façon comme une autre d'attirer le regard, surtout la nuit quand tout est sombre et que les enseignes brillent de mille couleurs, très belle photo cadrée, à bientôt Tamara

27 Jan 2010 10:18pm

Extra cette devanture.

28 Jan 2010 8:27pm

Christophe Esnard from Angoulême, France

Et évidemment, Coca-Cola est venu prendre sa place dans le paysage... En tout cas, cette façade est très surprenante.
