Help!

For some reason I am finding myself drinking all of these euro-beers and other beers instead of the good old American Budwieser and Miller. It all started with Heineken. When I was in Amsterdam last March with my brother we went to the brewery and then later that night we found a quiet bar (without a bunch of English and Scottish troublemakers) in the RLD where we could watch this entrepreneurial woman's business and her clientele and we drank Heineken after Heineken after Heineken.

Then I would get Heineken all the time and then I ended up develping a taste for Guinness (well after my visit to Ireland and the Guinness Brewery). Over my summer vacation I found myself drinking Dos Equis, Red Stripe, and Bass. Recently I found myself buying pitchers of Bass for myself at trivia night at a local bar. And crap, my second to last visit to the liqour store found me buying Czechvar lager in recognition of the flooding victims in the Czech Republic.

What's wrong with me? The thing I fear most is the situation with Fosters where the country of origin doesn't really like the beer it exports.

I don't think that's really a problem unless you just drink too much in general.

I know somebody who recently went to Amsterdam and she was able to charge marijuana on her American Express card!

"good old American Budwieser.." That's a good one. Bud is second only to Coors light in the pits of the beer world. I feed hummingbirds less sugar than Buttwiper contains.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Yea, the narcotics there even come in prepackaged containers complete with a UPC code. I tried it when I was there in '01 (my first and last time) but not on my most recent visit since I am a transit operator subject to random drug testing. That was a good story to tell the drug pushers too since they are pretty persuasive.

Gr325,

You're kidding right? PLEASE tell me you're kidding!!! Grolsch is, is.. (let me find the right words so you don't feel insulted) B-A-D!!!!! I recently returned from Spain, and was forced to drink that crap. After two minutes it looks and tastes like a real beer (say, Jupiler, Stella Artois) that's been standing around for an hour: no foam, no gas, no taste. Oh and that Grolsch really makes your farts stink the morning after! Really disgusting!

The only two American beers I can stomach are Rolling Rock and Budweiser. Mind you the Bud that is Canadianized to 5% alc./vol.

I generally like strong malty beers. My favourite is one called Dave's Doppelgold 5% alc./vol. It comes pretty close to the bavarian style doppels of Europe.

As for Dutch beer, Heinee-kin is the best, followed by Amstel. I don't care for Grolsch. Nice bottle though! There is a beer that is popular in Holland that is from Belgium with a reddish label if I recall correctly (blurry memories). Anyone know what that is? Many Europeans drink their beer at room temperature or chilled just slightly. For me, I chill it in the summer and room temperature in the winter.



Our Canadian beers aren't bad. Sleemans Cream Ale is tasty.

Cheers, Dripstick

About the Belgian beer that's popular in Holland, could this be the one?

I think Bud tastes like water. German and Austrian Beers together with Heineken are the Best. Recently I have also discovered Corona to be quite good.

Prost !

Dripstick,

Palm's not the kind of beer you usually would drink from the bottle, so it's probably not that one...

Here's another candidate...



Could this be it?

I was drinking those Stella Atois left and right last week in Montreal , they're everywhere over in Montreal. However I haven't seen them yet here in New Jersey, although Im still looking. I like those beers alot, I think I could find them in most Manhattan bars/restaraunts. When in Canada I was also drinking Labatt Blue, why do they call it "blue"?.

I also like Becks, I got a pretty good buzz off just two Becks last night at TGIF's.

Another beer I like is called Pacifico, it's a Mexican beer I get at most Mexican restaraunts. It has a yellow lable with the cliffs of Acapulco on it, much better than Corona.

Then there's Peroni, an Italian Beer. I bring it over my Girfriends house during the holidays because her Father is from Italy and enjoys pretty much anything Italian.

As for good ol' American beers, I like Miller lite, MGD, Sam Adams, some beer from Brooklyn that I can't remember the name of, and Pete's Wicked brews.

STT757,

I've been 3 times to Montreal and yes Stella-Artois is becoming more and more popular there. Why? Because Interbrew (a big Belgian brewery) bought Labatt.
It's portfolio combines international premium/specialty brands - Beck's, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe and Bass Ale - with the strong local brands which are at the heart of our operations, including Jupiler, OB Lager, Labatt Blue, Cass, Ozujsko, Klinskoye, Sibirskaya Korona, Chernigivski, Staropramen and Borsodi S?r.

Actually if you love beers, visit Belgium. We have the best beers in the world (more than 200 beers are brewed in Belgium!!)

My favorites is the Chimay (blue): One of the 6 trappist (brewed by monks) beer (9 alc./vol.).

They bought also Beck`s.

I like Stella Artois also but only when I am flying. I always drink that beer in the air, never on the ground. My favorite at the moment is Erdinger Weissbier, an excellent Wheat beer from Bavaria.

No not really, personally I love groslch beer, but that is me. But on the other side I have to admit that your taste for beer is excellent too. Palm is one of the best foreign beers I have ever had in my life. I have worked in Dochamps on a campsite for a few months, and had the privelige to drink palm every day. Excellent  Big thumbs up

I love the taste of Guinness, Corona and Heineken. I also like Baltika, a Russian brand of beer. I don't think I like anything that's brewed in the USA. Bud tastes like water, and don't even get me started on Keystone light...

After suffering bollocks-weak Budweiser on tap in America, never again for American beer. The bottled Bud, at least here, is ok in a pinch. But for GOD'S sake the American's can't take their booze.

My wife and I like to go to local microbreweries and try the sampler, in which you get four ounces or so of all their different beers before deciding on one.

As far as bottled beers are concerned, we like Guinness, Fat Tire (if you can get it fresh), Heineken, Sam Adams (who also make a good hefeweisen), Shiner Bock (also makes a good hefeweisen), Rolling Rock...the list goes on. I'm sure I'll think of more later.
