If I can I always go for the import Stella. Lately I`ve been drinking Polish beers. Tyskie and Zywiec being my two faves. Strong too at 5.6% abv.

Real ale purists and Geordies/north easterners always drink it from a Schooner. Or a similar glass.

Many years ago I worked at the Reading Festival (music). FREE Bear all day long + free entry to the VIP enclosure after work when the main bands were on. We drank the workers bar dry of Newky Broon! The band bar had some left but would net give it up to us :-(

Yup. Debating whether Newcastle Brown Ale is better than Boddingtons, Tennents Lager or Stella Artois is like two tramps having a fight over whether turpentine is better than aftershave. There are precisely two markets for Newcastle Brown Ale in the UK:

1) Students, and 2) Vagrants.

Mill Street Organic.
But I`m always down for a good old Molson Canadian. It`s always the beer that everyone agrees on when we are sharing the cost of a 24 or 48 pack.

I very much like belgian beers, Chimay, Rochefort, etc..

Also, America makes some fantastic beer. I know we get a bad name from Budweiser, but breweries like Stone, North Coast, Dogfish Head, and Deschutes are second to none in quality. I`ll take Oregon over Germany any day.

[quote]Maybe if they would concentrate on making good beer they wouldn`t need a fancy glass to sell their mediocre product.[/quote]

It`s extremely difficult to make good beer with a very consistent taste (i.e. a brand) in very large quantities. Barrelfuls, yes. Lakefuls, no.

It`s quite easy to make adequate beer with a very consistent taste in very large quantities and then make good adverts. So that`s what mass-scale breweries do.

They`re trying to rebrand Stella in the UK as a high-end beer for discerning customers. A tall order, given its image as a drink for thugs to swill down before attacking everyone in a drunken rage.

I`ll pretty much drink any kind of beer you put in my hand... although if I go to the store to pick some up, it`s usually Michelob Golden Light, `cause... it`s relatively inexpensive and it doesn`t taste too awful. My favorite is probably Corona, though.

Bollocks are testicles. Bollocks means something`s crap.
Or dogs bollocks means something`s good. Like Newcastle brown ale is the dogs bollocks.
I live 13 miles away from Newcastle. "Broon" as Geordies (people from Newcastle) say is also known as dog. Back in the days a man would tell his wife he was going out to walk the dog so he could sneak off out for a pint of broon. Also it was known as mad dog because drinking copious amounts of the stuff would turn you into a mad dog, ie. very crazy. Drinking broon in Newcastle and the rest of north east England has to be drunk from a "Schooner", which is the glass seen in the above advertisement. A little at a time to keep the head alive.

In the Newcastle area Newcastle Brown is seen as an `auld gadgies` beer. That is, drunk by older blokes in traditional working class pubs.

My favorite 3 beers are

1 Pilsner Urquell ( Czech beer, you know Czech invented the pils metod? Whitouth this metod we can`t have the beer we know today)

2 Forst an Italian beer really gooood!

3 Finkbrau a really cheep German beer that beat all famous international beers around, if you want to try it try it in metallic can, is better than in glass bottle.

Only in a gauche culture like America could a lowbrow ale like Newcastle Brown be considered a refined drink worthy of discussion. We`ll need to send you over some of the other beverages that homeless alcoholics drink over here - your eyes would be out on stalks.

@5cats: Harry Molson. Kind of a cool guy. Even in such conservative times, it was well known that he was having three-ways with his cousin and his cousins wife! :-D He went down with the Titanic like a gentleman. He actually was more involved with his family`s bank than the brewery, but it`s still cool beer trivia. :-) I know quite a bit about him, so if you want more info, let me know.

Most German beers in the states while not tasting the same all have a similar component flavor. None rank really high on my list. Shame really as I`m sure if I went to Germany I`d find plenty of stellar brews.

Newcastle`s not bad but a little bland for me. Stella is way too light. Perhaps a half decent brew with a nice meal of lobster or scallops.

My usual preference is for pale ales and IPAs. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a nice place to start in the category. It`s got nice balance without being too over the top. Dogfish Head makes plenty of over the top beers like the 60, 90 and 120 minute IPAs. Not for the beginner or faint of heart.

Rogue Shakespeare Stout and Hazelnut Brown are a real treat. Seems folks from Oregon really know how to brew.

It`s a good add, but not sure if it`s the better beer. Belgium has hundreds of good beers, it doesn`t matter what your taste is, there`s a beer for it. I`m going for another case of Westvleteren 12 soon. That`s the best one for me.

I am a bit of a beer snob, but I like anything with a good deep flavor. I hate watered down piss, and I agree that most US beers are just that. There are a number of microbrews around that are very good. I like Heavy Seas out of Maryland, and Bells from Michigan.

I live near Cologne in Germany. We have the worlds best beer. Everytime I fly home to the UK I take home Ahr valley wine and beer for my parents, and bring back Irn Bru, Bacon and Kettle Crisps for myself.

America and Americans are lovely, but there are very very few tolerable beers over there, even including the microbreweries.

Tequila is the pootiest-ass-poo I have ever head. Hell, everclear is drating better than god damn tequila. Margaritas made with everclear TASTE better than margaritas made with tequila. The fact that you put that poo above anything invalidates every single post you will ever make ever.

There`s so much disagreement on what the best alcohol is. Can`t we all get along....while getting sh*tfaced? Let`s all agree that as long as we`re all enjoying a happy drunk, it doesn`t matter what you`re drinking, as long as it`s with friends. Unless, it ends in "Lite", then seriously, just go f*ck yourself.

@onoffonoffon Except that is how the successful macro breweries have grown so large. Save money using cheap starch adjuncts like corn and rice, drive technology to produce more yield in alpha acids in hops, plumper barley kernels and then launch a huge ad campaign to convince everyone that their product is high quality. It is what you are not paying for the funds the atrocious ad campaigns of farting horses and near naked women that convinces the feeble minded masses to drink a substandard product.
