Beer - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I enjoy beer, and all kinds of beers. After drinking a spectrum of beers this weekend, from Hamms ($3.79/12 pack) to Harp ($8/6 pack) I can definitely say that the nicer beers are well worth the money. Also, you don't turn into a crazy drunken animal as you do with Hamms/Blatz/Schlitz/Beast Ice/PBR.

I'll never turn down a 40 of Mickey's either.

Beer is to be savoured, I say. I don't like getting intoxicated so I would rather pay $30 for a single bottle of Cantillon than swill 30 bland ales. But that is just me

P.s. any informed soul know where I can find some Rodenbach Alexander? I know it has been discontinued but it is said to cellar well and I would absolutley LOVE to have some (I have a thing for Flemish reds).

Most beer is vile. But good artisanal brews can approach wine in complexity and enjoyability. And sometimes pair better with food.

i think my new favorite beer is Xingu, from Brazil.

but i'll always buy red hook (ESB or IPA), sierra nevada, harp, bass, guiness, etc. ...not to mention all the local microbrews.

Mickeys is good, I had three 40s on new years. I also love Shiner Bock, and Coors Light. Other than those, I hate beer.

Yeah, those (not so much Shiner though) are really more high school/college party lubricants than beers...

I had some of the best beer I've tasted in Cyprus, of all places. The heat that summer I was there may have had something to do with it, but I liked it. I think it was called Keo, but there were several varieties of it.

Holy crap! The KEO brewery is only 5 minutes by foot from my house (well, my parents' house - I have been here for almost a decade). KEO is a little conventional but works really well in the hot and humid area.
For a nice little alternative try KEO with some ginger ale. A bit "touristy" but refreshing.

Like a shandy? Should be good in the heat. I thought that the fact of me remembering the name of the beer after twenty years or so should be an indicator of quality. I'm also fond of wheat beer like Hoegaarden, but it can give me a bitch of a headache after just a couple, for some reason.
