    I wasn't prepared for the strength of beer that I was consuming.. the entire night was a blank too me... but I do recall waking up the following morning with you tickling my paw, and you was saying "tickle tickle tickle tickly" :p

    USA variety and weird flavors from our microbreweries rock. Love Russian stouts though not sure I’ve ever had an actual Russian beer. Also love Unibroue, La Maudite is my shit.

    There’s a microbrew movement brewing up in México also, went to Monterrey some years ago and tried a couple of local craft beers there and one of them was probably the best beer I’ve ever had, can’t remember the name or style though I’m not a total nerd about it.

    Used to be Belgium but in the last 10 years, no one can tough the US. Breweries openings daily, something for everyone. The scene is incredible.

    Likely the US. I have had a lot of imported beers and they don’t compare to the microbrews here. That might not be a far comparison though, as I am drinking the microbrews fresh from the tap.

    I’ve had a few from breweries around here that were Czech style pilsners, and they were amazing. They might be the most underrated country of this poll

    Beer, chocolate and girls are the only 3 things that give Belgium a reason to exist

    Not a fair comparison indeed. It's like being in Europe and comparing local microbrews beers (there are plenty now) to the bud and coors.
    Local microbrewed beers are generally good everywhere, but they are also quite similar, they loose the regional signature.

    Belgium is at the top for powerful and rich beers, Germany takes it for light and refreshing beers to drink by the litre, Czech is underrated, England and France are pretty good.

    And fritland, a very small but famous fries place, was one of the few places of Bruxelles worth to exist

    Still
    Baked potatoes with olive oil, white wine and sea salt > fries

    Save the elite beer and chocolate
    Save the huge boobed blonde/ginger girls
    Drop the rest

    I honestly don't believe any anyone when they claim beer is their favourite drink<28>, so I give zero fucks about who has the best, but I will wet myself laughing if any murican sees your post and decides to make a thread about murican chocolate being anything other than dogshit in a wrapper.

    Every time I have ordered a Murican beer that generally has a high rating online, I am underwhelmed by it. Not using that as a verdict for all Murican beer, but it's a strange phenomenon.

    I would take the piss out of Yank beer but that would only remove the flavour.

    I think you have to judge it on the commonplace beer, not as a whole.

    for example, I can go to most shithole countries in the world and still find a good imported or craft beer.

    when you talk about the best beer, what you are really saying is, "if i walk down the street and pop into 5 random places in each country, which country is gonna have the best beer?"

    for that, you really gotta give props to places like germany, belgium, czechia.

    america has a lot of cool places, but it also has alot of fucking terrible beer and terrible places. the average beer drank in the US is garbage tier.

    I've had amazing beer in the US, but most places are shit and most american beers that are popular are also shit.

    compare that to Prague where you can confidentely walk into any bar in the city and be assured that the beer is good

    No it’s not like that at all. I’m not drinking the Coors light of Belgium you missed my point entirely. I’m saying I can drink these beers on draft here which is a big advantage to drinking a beer that’s been bottled for months and shipped halfway around the world. Beer does lose some of its greatness when it’s been bottled. Maybe I would think Belgium or Germany had better beers if I was drinking them out the tap.

    Did you do a blind test on bottle vs tap? When tasting things like beer, a lot plays in your head.

    I guy beer both bottled and on tap from local brews around here. It makes a difference and it's not in your head.
