I did not expect us to be on this list.
They had some of the hottest mustard I've ever had in my life. It was so good. Even though the selection is tiny it feels like they haven't updated the prices since 1985 and IMO that makes up for it. Sometimes light or dark is all the choice I need.
As for coconut ales, try Maui Brewing Coconut Porter. It isn't as good as the one I get locally, but it's one of the better coconuts available in a decently wide area.
This is a good point.
There's certainly lots of great quality in the US but it's very sparse and concentrated in only a few places. That awesome brewery in your city isn't available for 99% of the US population. The majority of bars, restaurants and convenience stores will sell the same old Anheuser Busch crap with maybe, maybe, a couple of good, local microbrews. If you live out in rural area, forget it. It's Natty Light or Busch, no questions asked.
I say this as an elitist hipster that hasn't bought a single Coors/Miller/Bud crap in several years.
So a good comparison would be mainstream vs mainstream. We know that in a best available vs best available battle the US is right near the top.
How da fook is Czech Republic not on the list? Their Pilsner is da bomb
It is mostly cheap, but yes, it is also good. I love me some Kozel.
If you order a Řezaný, they mix the normal one and the dark one and it is amazing.
But yeah, Belgium deserves #1.
Don't think so. Québec has microbreweries that are like 30y-o now, which make Belgian type ales.
Canada is definitely underrated imo. it’s no US, Belgium or Germany, but still. it’s hard to compete w/ the big three when all is said & done
I'm a fan of many of them however I'm not sure what you mean?
Canada is not close to the USA or we are closer then a few years behind them?
Well, im giving craft beer another try, went to the store and found some honey amber ale, whatever that means.
I guess i just hate hops because while it was nice on the first half, im already tired of it by the second one.
Although i just bought a craft Vienna style lager and i think i found my favorite beer.
Why don't you do a little research (Beer Advocate) and start with an well rated, unoffensive, balanced, mellow ale like a Blonde or Cream Ale. That's where I started. Read about a local ale that received an award, liked it enough and went from there. There are lots of crappy craft beers out there. Went to Florida over Xmas and stopped at a microbrewery for dinner. I had a couple of flights of beer and there was one I might recommend. I generally like Amber's but the one I tried was one of the worst beers I've had. On the other hand, got a suggestion from a guy on here for breweries in the area and picked up a few six packs to bring back. All were good.
I still prefer a more balanced beer but dip into the hoppy variety depending what I'm eating or the mood I'm in. I drink my wife's Corona's now and then. It's a good hot weather beer.
I traveled to Guadalajara a few years ago and looked for a local brewery. Specifically looked for a Minerva when I was there...didn't like. Funky taste.
I mean that microbreweries have been a thing in Québec for more than 20 years.
My statement is merely that they cannot be a couple of years behind, when they actually were doing in significant ways before it was even a thing in the US.
Lol that list is bullshit
Ok I get it. You may be right with the Belgian style beers but I still think we are a bit behind the US in categories that are the most popular these days.
im not keen on fruity beers at all either. i understand that many micros are trying to stand out from the crowd but usually their pales would be fine without a zesty taste.
Unless it’s cheap like Pabst Blue Ribbon.
The People's Republic Of China will have the greatest craft beers in the world once we invade and occupy the US.
That being said, major supermarket chains actually have Craft Beer sections now. Stop and Shop, Whole Foods, Stew Leonard’s, Best Yet, Shop Rite, all have it. You can mix and match and make your own sizer at some of them. Locally we can get all sorts of stuff including IPAs, Stout’s, Lagers, and high ABVs.
I get an orange in a Blue Moon or a lime in a Corona. But Blueberry Beer? Or pineapple? How many of those could you drink before getting sick
Sweet source brah...
what beers from australia are you referring too ?
