If you want to try an Indian beer, check out Taj Mahal or Kingfisher. Both are pretty good.

Well, being from Canada I naturally enjoy Budweiser  Wink (Yes, yes, I know Budweiser is American, it also happens to be the offical beer of NASCAR, which I also happen to love, I'm a crappy Canadian)

However, I just got back from the pub and they had a deal on Molson Ice, it's a great beer. I'd go for that, but what do I know, most true beer drinkers disregard anything that I say based on the fact that my favorite beer is Budweiser.

Well, my favourite German beers from your list (in no special order):

Bitburger
Erdinger
Warsteiner
Köstritzer Dark

Bitburger and Warsteiner are among the top 5 selling beers in Germany, good pilseners in my opinion.

Erdinger is the best wheat beer I ever had together with Franziskaner.

Köstritzer is an excellent beer, especially of you dont like it too strong. Smooth taste, but relatively expensive unfortunately.

The Hacker Pschorr stuff is very good as well, had it at the Octoberfest several times. If you can get the Octoberfest beer now, you should probably get some since its not available the whole year long.

Have fun getting wasted,

I am a wheat-beer drinker and I have to say that Hacker Pschorr is my new favourite since I tried it three weeks ago. Erdinger is the second best in my opinion but I buy it rarely nowadays because it is totally overpriced, my local beverage store sells a case with 20 0.5 liter bottles for over 14 EUR.  Wow!

When it comes to Pils then I have nothing against Fiege, Bitburger, Kronen, Königs or Jever. On the other hand are Warsteiner, Krombacher, DAB and Veltins disgusting pisses, these beers are a disgrace for the brewing guild and I avoid them whenever I can.

Then there is of course Tyskie, I am so glad that it is available here now, one damned good beer!

By the way, here are two pics from last weekend, you can get an idea what we drunk. Big grin

We started with this:



And continued with these:



And yes, I was pretty dizzy after we finished a few of them. Big grin  Silly

The premium Australian beer, in my opinion, is Crown Lager. A very good beer, even by Aussie "hop the hell out of your beer" standards.

I also really enjoyed Toohey's Old. It's a black lager, which is a nice change of pace.

Good luck, and let me know if you find anything we should try.

I took 6 bottles of Tyskie to my neighbours. A few of us gathered and talked some shit. Typical Saturday evening.

I gave the boys a bottle to try. I drank mine back quickly as i had a huge thirst. The others drank theirs but not after some poor comments.

What a waste. Usually i leave the extra beers but in this case i took them back home where they will be appreciated. Bunch of blue collar Canadian hicks.  Wink

I have heard of good things with regards to Erdinger.

Are you nuts?

The only two decent pilsener that are quite easy to find are Jever and Flensburger, although both were a lot better 20 years ago when it was still difficult to get your hands on them.
Than there is Einbecker Brauherren (not the regular Pils!) which is already comparatively difficult to find.

Considering you drink Foster's and Warsteiner and other sorry excuses for a beer, you probably won't like them, though.  Smile

I can't say it enough.. Pyramid is in my opinion one of the best microbreweries in the United States. If you haven't tried their Hefewizen, then you need to out right now and pick up a 6-pack! It's one of the best Hefe's you'll ever have. Hmmm.. Hefe with lemon.. *drool*.

Can't wait to get back to SEA next week...

Avoid the "Brewer Patriot" 4 pack of Colonial Recipe brews. I bought one of these last weekend, and only two of the four beers were worth drinking, the Traditional Ginger Honey Ale and the James Madison Dark Wheat Ale. The George Washington Porter was a bit odd (had molasses and licorice in the recipe) and the 1790 Root Beer Brew was undrinkable.

Quoting Halls120 (Reply 17):

It's not available where he lives. A shame though, as it's a pretty good brew, a bit too hoppy for me though. But like many microbreweries, they keep their distribution area small so that stores will always have the freshest beer they can. A brewery like Sam Adams has two brewery locations so they can provide a larger area in terms of distribution. In some cases, microbrewies will contract out their brewing in other parts of the country so that they have have their product sold nationwide (In fact, some microbreweries contract out to one of the major breweries to brew for them during slow times for the big breweries). If I were to ever leave Atlanta, I'd probably have to have a case of my favorite local brew (Sweetwater 420) shipped to me on a monthly basis.

I think Belgian beer is actually quite good because like the USA, the Belgians seem to be into to type of craft brewing that is all the rage on this side of the "pond."  Smile

My favorite beer is Anchor Steam Beer from Anchor Brewing Company, a small brewer in San Francisco, CA. Their signature beer is flat-out SUPERB with a very clean taste, something that can't be said for beers made by the big commercial brewers like SAB Miller and Anheuser-Busch. Anchor Steam Beer could probably compare with with the better-quality German and Belgian brews.  yes

The premium Australian beer, in my opinion, is Crown Lager. A very good beer, even by Aussie "hop the hell out of your beer" standards.

Crownies aren't too bad, but the Tassie beers, especially Boag's are in another league! Hardly anyone here drinks Fosters.
Essendon - Whatever it takes......

Well, being from Canada I naturally enjoy Budweiser (Yes, yes, I know Budweiser is American, it also happens to be the offical beer of NASCAR, which I also happen to love, I'm a crappy Canadian)

That's ok my canadian friend. Although I do drink Bud I LOVE Moosehead beer.
It's smooth can get really get a kick from it and unlike most beers which tend to give me a headache if I consume too many Moosehead never has.

I too am an Erdinger fan. Last time I was drinking it in Germany I was told to put some grains of rice in the bottom of the glass. I'm not sure I understood what it was supposed to do (had drunk quite a few by this time), but it was a local 'expert' telling me to do so, so I obeyed orders.  Wink

Maybe someone on here can enlighten me?

I also have a great love for Hoegaarden. There is nothing nicer (well, maybe a Corona with some lime) than on a hot day, to have a chilled glass of Hoegaarden with a slice of lemon in it. It is extremely refreshing! Have a few of them and you're bound to have a great evening.

One other beer that wasn't on the list, but I would strongly recommend trying to get hold of, would be Fat Tire. It's a really nice beer made in Fort Collins, Colorado.
