Great Lakes Brewery Christmas Ale. It sells out every year and we all stock up on it as much as possible. It's incredible. It's as good on a July afternoon as it is December 24th. We fear that they may have included heroin in the recipe because we're addicted. Good God, I may crack one open right now.
In other news, I piss stronger than Heineken. Blech.
It's funny, in the USA it's one of the most popular beers while in the Netherlands everyone says it tastes like piss...
Not just in Netherlands. Dutch simply have no clue how to make good beer. Yet it speaks books about the even worse quality of US beer.. That doesn't taste like piss, but it's a supportive to make you piss. lol It's really horrible, every single brand. The closest to good European beer quality would be Samuel Adams, but then, they also miss by a good margin.
My fav... hands down... Weissenoher Beer... Small town in Franconia, Germany. Monastery Brewery, established around 1050ish..
All their beer is just beyond excellent... But my own fav is
I could pour a whole case down of that stuff, just because of how it tastes...
I got TONS of them That's why I use this awesome new app for android They have like 160k or smth different beers for 200 countries, so you can save your oppinion pretty much on every beer you've tasted. Got to go to google play and type "Beers - Worlds beer logbook" or something like that. But I'd vote with:
EDIT: Thanks for reminding me, 3 posts above, about that beer you've drank. Forgot to add it to app Also loved that one.. a bit too "sweet" imho but still liked it.
Oh banana and chocolate beer are nice german beers
Neither of them are thinkable in Germany..
Hell no.. Someone provided the link already to the German Beer Purity Law.. No foreign beer ever had a breakthrough in Germany, asides from Guiness.
Banana beer = From Africa
Chocolate beer = Japan
Newcastle (enjoy all of their seasonal stuff as well, especially werewolf and summer ale)
Arrogant Bastard Ale (most of Stones other stuff as well)
Bootleggers: Golden Chaos
Craft Smoked Lager. Craft is a microbrewery here in Greece and that stuff tastes godlike. Now I won't say no to some trappist beers but that smoked craft is more common in pubs/bars and thus much more accessible.
I've really grown fond of IPAs lately, and my favorites are:
Brewdog: Punk IPA
Lervig Aktiebryggeri: Lucky Jack
Haandbryggeriet: Dobbel Dose (actually a mismade beer, by too much hops being added, but turned out to be a great success)
My dad's micro-brewery: Untitled Gold
First pick has to be Vestfyen Classic. An amazing darkish Lager. Sadly not that widespread.
Of "Beers aviable mostly anywhere" I pick a Guinness, if the people can pour it propperly, otherwise it's crap.
But well, exist tons of fantastic belgian beers I can never remember the name off.
And the best seasonal brew I've ever tasted is most likely Sam Adams White.
