One of the only things that I miss about living in North America is the abundance \ relative normality of having craft \ local brews on tap. I'm not sure if it's because of the strict brewing purity laws in Germany, but even in Berlin it's really behind on having any sort of selection here. End up drinking shit pilsner after shit pilsner everywhere you go, and always the same few bigger brewers as well.

Interesting point because this has always been my favourite bit of going to Germany! I suppose it would get dull after a while but the culture of cheap, decently made local beer - even if it’s just pilsner - being everywhere certainly licks what we have here in the uk. 6 tins of corporate lager for a fiver or impossibly wanky craft beer and all of it really over priced. I still drink and enjoy all of it, of course and am unfairly skimming past what goes on in decent pubs. My favourite things in Germany are booze shops with chairs outside. Talk about a progressive culture.

I had a Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve last night. A little bit stronger & has a much more bitter finish than I remember regular Budweiser having (it's been years).

i have been trying to find these in town (nashville) and have had NO LUCK! very annoying.

Lived in Germany (Heidelberg) for three years in the late 90's.  Drank so much Hefeweizen (bread in a glass) that I doubt I will ever drink this style again.  Specifically, Schöfferhofer.  Refuse to drink a Pilsner.  Might as well drink piss.  If you get a chance to visit Heidelberg, check out Vetter's.  At the time, they had the world's strongest beer, 33.

Yeah basically this. I drink the pilsner anyway though because isn't many other easy options. I was strongly advised to visit Heidelberg last time I was in Mannheim, but well, didn't seem like was worth going around the other activities of the weekend.

This sounds interesting. Anyone have any thoughts on the difference between American Bud and the original czech Budweiser? I think I prefer the Czech version but I haven't gotten around to drinking any of that type of American beer in the last few years

Drinking a Berliner Kindl shit pilsner from the kebab stand on my corner right now.

i'm not sure Budweiser is even a beer...  hell, AB InBev admitted that no one drinks it for its taste!

I'll take Bud over PBR anyday. Favorite swill is probably Hamm's.

In Paris, France I remember drinking a can of something that had Tequila in it. The imagery on the can was like a gun-totin' Mexican bandit. It was good!

Was it called Desperado? Tequila flavored beer made in France. They have it here as well. Pretty good

today, post payday, drinking expensive, strong imperial stout.
tastes of marshmallow and goes down a treat.
from tiny rebel brewery, 9% proof, so not as strong as some imperials, but yummy for an evening.as flavour sweet but shallow.

guiness have seemingly looked to their 'back catalogue' and come up with several bottled stouts/porters. all drinkable and better than the usual guiness extra cild sold via pumps.
imperial stout is indeed generally stronger than normal stuff. believe the name comes from it being drunk at/by imperial russian court pre revolution-initial contact with this brew was as a russian imperial stout and was 11% plus in alcohol.

Has anyone had beer brewed with bourbon? Saw a 4-pack but cannot remember the name of it. Kinda pricey but I'm curious.

Yeah I've had a few, normally I really like them. The slight flavour of wood and whiskey on top is great. Depending on how pricey it might be worth it.

The last beer this evening is a Weltenburger Kloster - Winter Traum. Surprisingly light (though substantial), it went very well with my evening Sandwich and an already quite advanced buzz.

If you get something like the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout make sure you don't drink it fridge-cold. The flavors burst into life and the heavy ABV is less prominent when you let it warm a bit first. Unfortunately almost impossible to get in Europe.

Picked up a 6-pack of Dale's Pale Ale brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery out of Austin. 6.5 ABV. It's okay, has a bit of a sweet taste. Not sure I'd buy it again.
