    Boston Brewing Company? Talk about OVERRATED beer!
    There are plenty of much better crafted beers that that swill.

    I heard a rumor that they were caught filming the production line inside of the Budweiser brewing facility in the part that is off-limits to the Bud brewery tour.

    Stella is a favorite of mine.

    Let's face it, Europe does beer better than the US.
    I don't know about that last statement actually.

    Go to the closest liquor store that carries semi-obscure beers, like small brewery stuff, and see if you can find Victory Prima Pilsner.

    It's $9 a six pack, but well worth it. I'm getting my dad a case of it for father's day.

    25 to 30 years ago, I'de agree with the German beer was way better statement, but today, not sure about that.






    I'm not drinking any longer, but when the micro brewerys started popping up and gaining intrest, one could find some dam good American Beers out there.
    I know it's gone big time commercial now, but the Sam Adams line of beers are pretty good
    ( some ) these days and maybe even better when they where making a name for themelves.







    I'de say it's wide open now, the beer brewers battle, and there is some dam good beers out there from countrys you wouldn't even expect it from....One Place I can mention would be South and East Africa,
    some dam good beer comes from that part of the world these days...








    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    You want German beer?

    Try Ayinger's Celebrator Doppelbock.

    It pours like flat coke. It was really delicious, pretty alcoholic(7%) and very expensive. Fortunately I got it for free.

    Give it a try.

    Not to belittle Canada at all - They certainly made a contribution, and after WWI and WWII Canada emerged as a major player in the world.

    Yeah Canada didn't have near the numbers that Britain or America did, but they were known as good soldiers (we're taught.) Anyways America saved our (Canada and Britain's) ass in WWII, but only because they had to at that point.

    And Canadian beer is damn good. Blue if your in Ontario, Kokanee if you're out west.

    I do know about that statement.

    Just trying european beer that is exported is not an indication of how good there beer is.
    I've spent over 3 years in Germany and travelled extensively while there.
    The really good beer is not exported in any quanity if at all.
    If you try to get a major exported beer like Lowenbrau, German's will laugh and say they only export that swill.

    I got the same response in Australia when I looked for Foster's.
    It's hard to find as Aussies won't drink it as XXXX and Victoria Bitter is more popular.

    The best commonly found beer I had in Europe was a Czech beer spelled Budweizer (trademark dispute with AB), but is FAR superior.
    There are also LOTS of lesser available beers that are even better, especially in Belguim where they treat beer like the French treat their wine.
    Actually, some of their beer comes in wine like bottles and cost $20+ a bottle.

    The best commonly found beer in Australia is Redback.
    It is not exported outside AU, NZ, and Singapore.

    I would love to give Victory Prima Pilsner a try but they don't distribute to AZ.
    But when I get to CA, TX or out east I'll see if I can find it.

    If a Belguim company buys AB it can only make the beer better, which IMO will not be hard to do.
