switzerland: Appenzeller Naturperle. refreshing, and easy to drink. love this beer.
Texas: Shiner Bock, Fireman's 4. If broke, Lone Star (aka the National Beer of Texas - cheap swill, but effective...)
Dublin: Of course you have to try a Guinness, it's oily, it's like a meal in itself, many claim it's healing.
Belgium: Duvel ...keep in mind it's rather high in alcohol content
Bristol Brewing — Laughing Lab (Award-winning Scottish Ale)
Phantom Canyon — IPA (Pale Ale, 6.7 percent ABV)
Trinity Brewing — Farm House Saison
Bavaria: Augustiner Weissbier. Amazing. All of the white beers are pretty good, but this one was tops, as far as I'm concerned. Can't figure out what the point of pils is with this stuff around.
Warrenville Two Brothers
Bozeman, Montana: Spanish Peaks Honey Raspberry Ale
Munchen or Andechs, Deutschland: Andecher Doppelbock
Baltimore, MD: Heavy Seas Double Cannon, Duclaw Old Flame
Salt Lake Int'l Airport
Wasatch Beers (Schirf Brewing Company)
Squatters Pub Brewery
Terminal 2, Conc. C
six small tasting glasses for ~$5, a very good option for killing some time
Denver: Coors Lite. Use it to clean your toilet bowl.
I prefer the various dark Hefeweizens. But I haven't been in Bavaria in ages.
Anyone have recommendations for Vienna?
Broke in Texas - Chose ZiegenBock over Lone Star
Really Broke in Texas - Pearl
2nd to Andechs in Munich
In Salzburg visit the Augustiner BierKeller/Garten (It's different than the German Augustiner)
Kansas City - Boulevard (If eating at Jack Stack make it a Tank 7)
I really don't want to tell you what the preferred beer is in my town, down state, Illinois beer is. Ya all would shoot me.
(Think Red Neck) But on most any given evening, there are more of these, sitting on the bar, than all the others, combined. And not Bud or Bud light.
Heading to London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Brussels. Any info on some good brews in these towns?
Berlin: Berliner Pilsner
Portland, Oregon: Tough question, we have around 50 independent craft brewers. More breweries per capita than any place in the world.
Eh, I think that's unlikely to be accurate. 50 breweries in a city of 580k+ amounts to one for each 11,600 people. For example, according to Wikipedia, Andechs has a population of 3299 I suspect there are other small towns in Europe with a local brewery.
Nevertheless, I am jealous and really should plan a trip up north for beerexploration.
This thread inspired me to buy some liquid beer tonight as I stopped at the grocery store for bread and cheese:
Enjoying the Optimator right now
Soooo.... to keep this thread on topic: if you are in my fridge, check out... the right bottle.
Well, actually the "Weiss" in this case means wheat, not white. It's a wheat beer, top-fermented. Pils is bottom-fermented and is usually barley-based. Different tastes for different folks (and for different situations). Sorta like saying, "If you've got burgundy, why have any other wine?"
Now, as to Munich: The absolutely best local beer commercially available here is Unionsbräu. It used to be a large brewer, but fell on hard times and now really has only one outlet -- the brewery/Gasthaus on Einsteinstrasse in the Haidhausen section of Munich, right off Max-Weber-Platz. It regularly wins prizes for best beer. Try the dark or the light (blond). Both are naturally cloudy from the yeast, but that adds to the flavor. Also they have a very nice little Biergarten in the back, if the weather's good.
I'll see if I can find a website for the place.
Edited to add:
http://www.unionsbraeu.de/ is in German;
Google will give you many hits; this is one that's short on description and pictures (see the German site for that), but has a map.
Laos: Beer Lao. Yeah, I know that comes as a surprise. But find it on tap, crisp, clean and cheap.
Sorry you're right, I double checked my figures and we are 2. Here is the list of breweries in Portland that are members of the Brewers Guild. There may be a few not on the list because they are not a part of the guild. If you include every McMenamins (a local brew pub chain) there is closer to 80. It is pretty amazing, off the top of my head I can think of two breweries that are less than 10 minutes from my house. And of course even my local dive bar has a dozen different craft beers on tap. This last weekend we just had the Oregon Brewers Festival on the waterfront. We are called Beervana for a reason.
Gonna be in Portland, Maine soon. Any recs?
that is a good thing
hopefully the mega do international portion will include some samples
please explain to Texans that they are not a nation.
