Ok, as some of you might know I don't trust any man who does not drink beer...

What's your favourite beer? Maybe you have brewed some yourself?

Pictures of your favourite ales and such are desirable , being introduced to great new beer is a joy.

( no wine but talk of cider is acceptable)

No favorites, I rotate among what's not popular but available at Sam's...

When I drink beer it's usually a Old Style on the side as a wash for my shooters. Most nights I'll throw out 2 or 3 to get a fresh head cause mine went flat.

Tonight's beer:



Another 9% ABV.
Umm, looks promising. San Francisco did seem to offer decent beer choice last time I visited. In fact leaving stuff like Colt 45 , bud, Miller out of things America has a wonderful beer scene. possibly the best in the world ..

I'm not sure I'd put it ahead of Belgium, but I'd definitely put the American craft beer scene ahead of most countries. The Germans, in particular, need to start experimenting more and get beyond the constraints of the reinheitsgebot.

Different regional styles are starting to emerge in the USA now, too, driven primarily by what hops can be grown in what climates.

I've also been to great CAMRA-certified pubs in London, but they to be rare things.

There are plenty of great ale pubs in London and indeed at least 4 up the road from me in Bristol .. Nothing special about CAMRA imo, bunch of old guys who don't like their beer to be ' too tasty' .

The U.S has such variety, iv seen beers brewed really well and inspired from the world beer scene ( like Belgium) in the states.

The Belgium's know how to promote and sell their beer, I like the reverence they have for fine ale.

German beer is... A little behind imo. In fact Germany is my least favourite place iv been to for beer.

You know the craft beer scene in the USA has grown lots recently. There are so many regional varieties of all kinds it makes it impossible to pick a favorite. I might find a new one next week.

Now me for a not very heavy beer I like Urquell, the old Pilsner from the Czech republic.

Of course many new craft beers have higher alcohol content. Some are kinda of crazy wild tastes just to get noticed I suppose. Many are quite good. Its a good time to be a beer drinker in the USA.

If I had to pick one it would be this one right now.

This is why America imo is beer capital of the world https://www.belgianstyleales.com/prod_detail_list/shop-spencer-trappist-ale I'm betting that's seriously good ale.. certainly got to be better than kwak of Belgium!

It's all there in America, it can be hard to find though.

The U.K. Scene is great, have a look at what's on at - small bar- in Bristol .. Great beer, beer of the gods.

We are living in a golden age for beer :)
