Inyri Forge;5062741I know what you mean. Most of the beers I listed as my least favorite were beers I drank at parties. Except Stella Artois. Someone told me that one was good, and I was incredibly disappointed when it tasted very watered down.

Ah yes. Mhm, i think you have the export version or so, as it tastes great here. :nodding:

And sorry, but people who like Heineken? :rofl: That's not even beer.

Junk angel;5062871To be honest I fall into the group that considers most american beers to be basically colored water with added sugar. Just never liked those. When it comes to beer types itself, I tend to prefer dark pilsners and well pilsners in general. and while Heineken isn't bad, it's definitely not the most sterling example of the kind.

Otherwise my choices would be The good old Pilsner Urquel

Velkopopovicky kozel

And most Krusovice stuff. Also the czech Budwaiser Budweiser Budvar Brewery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Plus there's a number of microbreweries I like.

Here is someone with good taste. Czech and polish beer is very good indeed with a nice variety between lighter and darker beers too. There is nothing better than Pilsner Urquell fresh from the tap, served in some medieval cellar-tavern in the midst of Prague.

American beer barely deserves the name. Sure, you can drink a Bud if it is cryogenically cooled in order to suppress its taste, but that reasoning probably also applies to urine. The only American beers I found acceptable were Samuel Adams (although it depends which version) and Yuengling.

As for German beer, there are a number of decent beers but I prefer König Pilsner. If it is warm outside a cold Weizen goes down rather well too (don't really mind the brand as they taste similar). San Miguel is also a nice beer if you end up in warmer climates.

Inyri Forge;5062728 Least favorites include any Miller, any Bud (although I must admit the Golden Wheat was tolerable), Foster's, Moosehead, and Stella Artois.

Honorable mention to PBR. Everybody loves PBR even though, objectively, it's horrible, amirite? 8)

Moosehead is a real hit or miss with me. It HAS to be fresh, too many times have I bought a 24 of bottles and they all be skunky and practically undrinkable (I still drank them, but it was a hardship). It's a great beer when fresh, but goes skunky quickly, I only buy it randomly and in small quantities, and usually in cans. The brewers of Moosehead also make a pretty solid light beer, Cracked Canoe, didn't think I'd like it, but was good.

I'll make an attempt at a list, I know I'll be missing quite a few (about 20-30+), mainly the random European beers that I can no longer remember the names of or think of off the top of my head because I'm nursing a hangover right now.

Don't confuse "American beer" with "popular American beer". There are quite a few really good American beers you never hear about because they're kind of under the radar. Beers like Bud Light, Miller, Foster's, etc, are all marketed to college students and social drinkers. They're the stuff that's sold at sporting events. They are light. Good beers don't have nearly the advertising that these light water-like beers have.

It's like judging all music based on what you hear on the radio most. Rock and roll isn't all bad just because Nickelback sucks. I'd definitely love to go to Europe, though. I bet it's much easier to find great beer there, whereas here you kind of have to go hunting for it. I assure you, though, that it does exist. ;)

Wikipedia Belgian breweries produce about 800 standard beers. When special one-off beers are included, the total number of Belgian beers is approximately 8700.Belgians drink 93 litres of beer a year on average

:)

Duvel is a fantastic beer. Chimay is great. Both are strong beers, but the second one might even be too strong: it will give a great hangover if you drink more than two.

Yeah, I have no idea. I usually go for Koff because their 24-packs are commonly found and are reasonably priced. I'd say Sandels is one of the best, but are a bit too expensive for binge drinking.

I am currently loving White Beer or Witbier. It is unfiltered wheat beer, which is often bottle fermented. It produces a delightfully fruity flavored beer. My favorite is Hoegaarden
