Default Belgian beer is best

on the square in front of the cathedral in Antwerp you can have a couple beers, moules and frites with mayonaisse -- this is what heaven must be like.

the only beer which I don't like is Bud, as it reminds me of my college dorm room.

Default Bud...

I like Bud, the real Czech version that is.
As for the amrican version, I still haven't found out who Anheuser-Busch bribed so they could write "Beer" on the label....

i don't think bud, busch, miller, et al, really qualify as 'beer' for the purposes of our discussion.

those are alcoholic carbonated drinks that are best served chilled to the point of tastelessness, on an extremely hot day when you don't care what you're drinking tastes like. hell, i'll even drink it from a can if i'm thirsty (or drunk) enough.

but i can't see how anyone would consider these drinks 'good tasting'. they serve a function, but enjoyment of the beverage is not it.

there's a history behind the wateriness of american mass-market beers, which i was told on a microbrewery tour, but i can't remember the story right now. maybe someone else knows it?

i think it has something to do with marketing during the world wars, when most of the men were off fighting. the target demographic was women. so they created 'lightened' beer.

i might be mistaken.

Default Melbourne Favourites

Standard issue is Carlton Draught. Sensational from the tap.

If having only one beer, Cascade premium. Subsequent cascades start to suck.

Easy drinking all day long, Boags.

And when its available on tap, Hoegaarden.

Yes, I would probably also put the belgian beers on the top if
hard pressed to choose one country, closely followed by
austrian beer.

As For Bud, I agree with our danish friend, the original Czech
Budweiser is very good. The american Budweiser is best left
on the store shelves, like all other bottled american
beers I have come across (might be good ones I have missed,
though). On the other hand, I have drunk very good micro-
brewery beer at several places in Portland, OR.

Hm, it sounds a bit familiar. Maybe I tried it when I was there.
Anyway, Portland was a good town for beer drinking.

i've always wanted to try Chimay. it's always in those big bottles and fairly high-priced (here, anyway), so i never bought one. i really should, one of these days.
