Sierra Nevada is pretty sweet stuff. I usually drink Kilians or Yueng Ling. Eric

(countdemoney @ June 16 2005,04:06) Sprecher - Milwaukee Pilsner. Seasonal brew. It's like Pilsner Urquell only better.
that, my friend, is heresy. nothing is like urquell, only better. there are different types of beer that are much better than pilzner, but urquell is an archtype, a liquid god, if you will. not that I am freakishly into beer or anything, I am just trying to set the record straight. the other good thing about urquell is that it is a breakfast beer - it is perfectly acceptable to drink it for breakfast. if your significant other questions this, tell them that's what it says on the bottle, in czech.
There's "breakfast beer"? That sounds like something Homer would say, "ummmmmmm, breakfast beer."

I wasn't making that comparison lightly, and there was no disrespect meant. Urquell is a fantastic beer. But the Milwaukee Pilsner. . . it's mighty good stuff. Here's a link to Sprecher: http://www.sprecherbrewery.com/index.html Sprecher's Mai Bock has won some awards, but it doesn't grab me the same way as some other bocks.

One of my best friends in college (and up to the present day) was known to drink a Pearl from time to time. When asked why there were a bunch of Pearl cans on the ledge of his shower, he replied, "I can't lather up holding a beer in one hand."

I love the bottles. The beer's okay but not my favorite. If I had to choose one beer, it would be Young's Chocolate Stout.

grolsch bottles are immensely useful for bottling your own beer.

I haven't tried it, and it may be very very good. I consider urquell an archtype, though, sort of the perfect example of its kind. the reference to breakfast beer- it is not uncommon in the czech republic to drnk beer with breekfast, I have done it several times with locals who seemed to think it was totally normal.

Wrong forum - Plato is in Current Events, Power and Money I would agree that I am similar - I judge pilsners based on comparison to Urquell. It really is the gold standard. [quote]

It's like they twisted your arm or something. Growing up in an area with a high concentration of German's, I can tell you that it's not just the czech's. And the right beer can be a nice compliment to a hearty meal.
