The Better BEER, Canadian Or American

Sun May 30, 2004 5:59 am

Thought this might be a fun thread, so let's hear from all of you and tell me which country makes the best beer. Canada or USA !


Cheers

Germany!

I just had a barbecue, and a litre of Weizen feels (and tastes) just too good to deny that German beer is excellent. Ahh, that warm and fuzzy feeling...  Laugh out loud

Both Countries have excellent micro breweries that produce excellent high quality beers. If you are talking about the major beers like Bud, Coors, Canadian, or Labatts....well they are all shit and I dont drink them.

If you asked me 10 years ago I would say I prefer Canadian beer, but now as VS340 says, there are great local brews coming out everywhere.

I currently favour Fort Garry Dark here in town and I've come to like a brew from the Midwest US called "Fat Tire".

I've also grown fond of a few great brews made in Quebec called Boreal and St. Ambroise. They both make different variants (dark, light, etc) and they are all great.

I'm a proud American, but lemme tell ya, Canadian Budweiser...wheeee good!  Smile Quite a bit more alcohol per bottle, worth every sip in my opinon.

That's not a real question! I don't know nothing about Canadian beer, but American beer is not really beer, it should be called juice!

Only German beer is it worth to be called beer!!!
Well done Germany!

A very good brew from Denver. I discovered while I was in Vegas ($1.99 a bottle @ The Westward Ho Casino), and really haven't tried to find it around here yet. I've tried a few of the local liquor stores around where I live, I may have to make a trip to this one liquor store in Atlanta that has the best beer selection in town. When it comes to beers, if they don't carry it, then nobody in Atlanta does. I'm going to be really happy come July 1st, when the 6% alcohol limit on beer is no more, I can finally get a hold to some beers I've been wanting to try for a few years.

Since I'm more of an ale drinker, most of the beers I drink are either imported from the UK or are US microbrews. Pretty much the only lagers I drink are Sam Adams Boston Lager and Sapporo and Asahi (Asahi is brewed under contract up in Canada, much like Fosters is) [The only time I drink Sapporo or Asahi is with Japanese food.]. The only Canadian ale I've ever had was Upper Canada Pale Ale (which my friend brought back from a Spring Break road trip that included driving up to Canada), not too bad of an ale, nice balance in terms of hops, unlike some of the US microbrews from the Pacific NW (some of those beers are way too hoppy for my tastes).

Having tried around 300 or so different beers from all over the world (I've tried beers from all of the continents except for Antarctica, and I don't think there's any plans for a brewery there yet), I have to say American beers (with the exception of the mass market brews [Budweiser, Miller, Bud Light, Miller Lite, Coors, etc.] that the US is infamous for) are better, while the Canadian mass market beers (Molson, Labatt, Moosehead, etc) are better than what the US produces.

I have to agree with Srbmod about Canadian mass market beers being better.
Haven't been up north in a while. Does Molson still make Brador? That was some good beer eh?

As long as it's cold, wet & tastes good, I don't care who brews "the better beer". When it comes to beer, I'm not at all hard to please.  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.

American beer is not really beer, it should be called juice!

Obviously, your only experience with American beer has been with macrobrewed swill. Try some real American beer - microbrews, sometime. Sierra Nevada, Pete's, Yuengling, Highland Brewery, and Saranac all make good brews. I can easily point out some piss-poor German brews too. Yeah on average, German beer is decent, but then you have things like Franziskaner Club-Weisse, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen, and Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen which are, IMNSHO, just as bad as American macrobrews.

Who has better beer? Comparing macrobrews head-to-head, I'd give the nod to the Canucks. Overall? An American micro easily takes the cake.

Actually it is spelled bier.

Actually that should be used as a marking campagn by the brewries in Germany. "It's beir, not beer" kind of thing.

As far as American and Canadian, both suck. I don't know why everybody gets such a thrill from Molsen. The microbreweries however are starting to change the equasion.

Which is better, Canadian or American beer? That's roughly akin to asking which football team is better, the Bengals or the Falcons (or the Tiger-Cats or the Argonauts for us Canucks.)

I agree with Garnetpalmetto, Canadian macrobrews would have the edge. Microbrews taken into condsideration, there are fine brews on both sides of the border.

While we're talking about beer, I've also wondered about the fascination with Corona. Personally, I think it's terrible (not to mention that when in Mexico you're supposed to avoid drinking the water there!)

I'd prefer to savour a Steinlager (NZ) or Victoria Bitter (AU) anyday.

I think part of the fascination is that #1...it's one of the cheapest beers available at a party. #2, its one of those beers that go down well. #3 It has a bit of the "exotic-ness" of a foreign beer.

OT: Speaking of mexican beers, Modelo Especial is a good one. And I would also like to put in a plug about Taj Mahal...an awesome Indian beer  Big thumbs up.

About the only thing American beer is good for is making beer batter for halibut.

HHHHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Beer batter




Canadian beer isn't even good for that

I think only someone who has drank both AND is not from either country should be voting, or there is a serious bias issue going on and the results cannot be trusted.

Aside from that, I think beer sucks. Only like Shmirnoff Vodka.  Big thumbs up

yeah, I had 151 once. I only take the hard stuff...in health doses.  Big grin The last time I had vodka, I chased it with an apple, the fruit. My friends thought I was crazy, but then I don't get drunk, so oh well.

Lephron,

Welcome to my RU. This is the first time I heard of someone using an APPLE for a chaser! btw...151 is garbage. Tried a shot and spit out 3/4 of it.

Last April (2003) was the first time I had alcohol, it was a mix of 151 and this blue shit. My friends in my dorm knew it was the first time and babied me when I took like 10 gulps straight from the bottle. They got all conerned and I'm like, "look at me, nothing putas!" I donno what the strength was, but it took 3 hours for the stuff to react. I never vomitted, I don't get that way. Either way, my friends had fun with me. They convinced me that I was stuck on the ceiling, they took pictures. They had me "contained" in the lounge cuz I was ready to complain to the RA's that they were rotating the room. I'll never forget that, it was cool.

I've got simple tastes. Bud Light works fine for me. Then again, I'll take a Molson, or even a Labatt's.

That said, as far as commercials go, US commercials are better (the Labatt's bear's getting old). And it's nice to see the Budweiser frogs back: trashing the Miller Lite debate commercials.

I LOVE those ads. Its so nice to see American style politics working its way into the beer industry. I have to admit that Budweiser did deliver a good punch back at Miller.

I would say American beer is better. I really don't like American beer, but it seems better to me.

(Grolsch is my favourite beer though)
