No beer suits every circumstance. The season, the temperature, the food, the occasion all play a part in the experience, of course.

I've never really had a stout I enjoyed as much as the over-the-bar Irish brands. I drank a fair amount of Beamish last weekend in France with a combined force of Irish, Welsh and American singers and drinkers. The Tara Bar in Brest also had Guinness and Murphy's on tap but Beamish pleased everyone most.

I spent a lot of my life in the Midlands of England where mild (ale) is still drunk. I still like mild when I want to find my bed on my own at the end of the night. There are a lot of good bitters mentioned above. I usually call for the lower alcohol ones nowadays.

My favorite Canadian ale is O'Keefe's.

Of Continental beers, I like Tuborg Green and Gamle Carlsberg in Scandinavia, Spaten helles and just about any German alt beer. There is so much good beer around Belgium and in Pilsen that I wouldn't know when to stop writing about it.

There is plenty of good beer in America now too... and some awful stuff swilling out of brew pubs as well. Of the old line manufacturers, I like 2 of America's oldest in Wilkes-Barre and Potsville, Pennsylvania. Max and Bert do too.

But what beer do you drink with pizza... give me a Coors... tastes most like Perrier.

All the best,
Dan Milner

Only available locally in Cumbria - a tiny brewery (guided tours on Wednesdays), now owned by the village of Hesket Newmarket (nothing to do with me.)They make CAMRA award beers (U.K. Mudcatters will understand), all named after the local Lake District fells e.g Great Cockup. One exception in name - Doris' 90th - a special recipe made for the brewer's wife's mother's 90th birhtday (since died, RIP Doris), (all apostrophies in the right places, I hope?) - it takes a strong stomach to drink more than a couple of these.

I tried a half pint of Doris' 90th once - never again. Those with stronger stomachs will enjoy.

Much to the dismay of the Heineken drinking college students who recently invaded my hoe, I go for quantity before quality. Hence Wicked Ale at $1.99/six pack and Genesee Cream (which is not half bad) for $2.99.

I'd rather have Jack Daniels on the rocks.

Despite my dislike for the golden brew, I would like to recruit one of our more knowledgeable guzzlers to plan and price a micro-brewery for The House of the Setting Sun Rest Home. It will probably work out cheaper in the long run than lithium and we can still count on an occasional if sloshy performance from imbibers.

I certainly view drinking beer from a health-food perspective. The darker the beer, the richer the nutrition, I always say. And after a long bike ride, you simply MUST replace your selenium with a good, long draught of beer.

Now, here's a thought: A friend sent me one of those e-mail quizzes in which you were asked to name your favorite beverages, etc. And then it "typed" you according to your choices (it was for women). Because I said I enjoy beer, it put me in the "low-maintenance" category, which is fairly accurate. Women who chose lady-like little drinkies or bottled water only were high maintenance. Those who only drink champagne or vintage wines were labeled "Fugedaboudit..."

So is there a relationship between whether one likes beer, what kind of beer one likes and one's relative degree of prissiness? Hmmm? What do you think?

Petr, I've just gone out and bought a can of our UK Bud. It says on the label "Beer brewed by Budweiser Stag, brwing company Ltd London" so I assume it is brewed over here. It also says "Brewed by our origaal process from the chociest Hops, Rice and best barley male Anheus-Busch, Inc, St Louis, Mo, USA". All I know is that I wish I hadn't decieded to give it another try, it is horrible IMO.

TerriK, I have to dissagree with you over your thoughts on strong beers. I generally go for flavour. If I go out, I normally drink Guiness (and I like other stouts) which is 4.1. When I drink bitter, I tend to find the weaker ones a little bland - most of the ones I like tend to be around the 5 mark. This vile Bud I have just bought is 5.0, a similar strengh to the bitters I like, is very heavily marked but is IMO crap.

If I really wanted to get pissed out of my brains on a beeer, I would be advocating something like Carlesberg Special brew at around 9% - I've done it and believe me it is potent stuff but I don't think that is anything to be proud of.

One of my favourites is McMullen's AK. Called a bitter, but more of a bitter-coloured mild. Only 3.7% alcohol. You can drink it all day!

Sorry to disappoint, Terry K, but I just like the flavor of the darker beers, generally the stouter the better. But I also like to sample other stuff at whatever brew pub I happen to visit. I just did a half-century bike ride a couple of weeks ago and had my best time ever. I credit this to my training regimen, which was fiendishly simple: I drank a lot of beer for three nights in a row before the ride and stayed up dancing until the clubs closed. Before, I had followed the recommended regimen and avoided alcohol, ate pasta and got a good night's sleep before the ride. I much prefer the beer/dancing regimen. I might try smoking a lot of cigarettes before the next ride, just to see how far this technique can go...

Anyone here ever tried Chimay ale? Mmmmm.

Is Fat Tire a local beer here in the Mountain states? I think it's dependably good.

I wouldn't call myself a poser. I like the strong beers and I like to drink many of them during an evening. Nothing like drinking until I'm tripping over my tied shoelaces. In Astoria, Oregon there's a brewpub called the Wet Dog Cafe. Great wonderful beer they have there. Used to drink this one called Peacock Spit, was so good and the damn thing would knock you on your ass. Ahh the times I would stumble a couple of miles or so back home singing at the top of my lungs. Only got stopped once. The cop after making sure there were no warrants out on me told me to party on as he laughingly crawled back into his car and drove off. Astoria was a great town to live in...

I'm not much of a drinker, but I do like a brand called Grasshopper, from just north of the Montana border in Canada. The best beer I had was in El Salvador. I loved the label on the bottle, too, so I brought an empty bottle back to Montana. The label is an Ace of Hearts, and it just says Pilsener Lager Bier. This is from back in 1978, so I don't know if the brewery still exists.

Interesting to note how many people advocate the extra strong beers that are marketed so well. What I tend to find is that the strong beers are ordered mainly by posers ("look what a great drinker I am") who sip their way through two half pints over a full evening. Give me a good "session beer" anytime so you can drink heavily all night!

LonesomeEj if you like lagers Id recommend Czeching out Czech beers. Pilsner Urquell one of the worlds oldest (if not the oldest) brews since 1292. Or the real Budweiser brewed in the Czech city Ceske Budejovice (Budweis). Annheuser Busch has been trying to suppress the Czech breweries from marketing the real Budweiser named after the town instead of the pi** brewed in the states. But they are the biggest brewery in the world and have more money for lawyers, although recently they lost in England and the only beer allowed to use the Budweiser name there is the Czech one.

Homebrew CAN be awful or excellent, depending on the amount of care put into the process. It has been my experience (12 5-gallon batches) that kit brews do not measure up at all. I far prefer the recipes that my wife and I have come up with on our own, the best one being a pale ale quite similar to Sierra Nevada. We get micro quality at macro prices. Waiting for it to condition into drinkability is torture, however!

But the nice tipple(s) locally (Towy Valley) is/are those of the Thomas Watkins micro-brewery, soon to move from Llandeilo to Swansea. Very drinkable.

There used to be some lovely stuff up Llanfair's way: Wems SA? I heard that they were bought out some years back and it ain't the same ...

He ought to have been an Admiral, a Sultan or a King
And to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us: he's filled us with good cheer.
God bless Charlie Mopps, the man who invented beer.

Here in Chesterfield [substitute your own locale] we drink beer a lot.
Down Whittington Moor [ditto] on a Saturday night, the pace gets rather hot.
We'll drink a half, or sometimes two, it's cool and fresh and clear:
God bless Charlie Mopps, the man who invented beer.

Chorus

The Admiral, the Connaught, the Hole in the Wall as well;
No matter what their name is, it's Charlie's beer they sell.
So come along, my lively lads, at eleven o'clock they stop:
For five short seconds, remember Charlie Mopps. (One... two... three, four, five)

Kendall, I am so happy you answered my questions.
For a while there I was worried I had asked something forbidden.
So I guess what you are saying is, if a man were to put on weight, he is most likely to gain it in his belly because that is where most of the fat cells are just waiting to inflate.

I must say this thread has been very helpful. I did not know much about beers. So after following this thread I went to the liquor store where the manager explained that lagers are less bitter than ales and bock/porters are sweeter and have more alcohol content. I even picked up some NewCastle to see the difference in quality.
Haven't tried it yet, but I am looking forward to tasting a beer that is highly recommended.

Many thanks

Correction McGrath of Harlow, I mentioned home brew, but I'm also masochistic. Early attempts at home brew were exercises in futility and creative poisoning. These days I brew it, shall I say "off site", but it is no differently brewed than how I'd do it at home. I'm thinking about moving the process home, for the sake of convenience. No luck at all with wheat beers but a sort of Rickard's Red-ish brew is quite tastey, and much better than big factory beers, to my taste.

banjo bonnie, to answer your question, according to Dr. Atkins, beer bellies are caused by too much carbohydrates. He claims it is the carbo's that pack the weight on, not fat in the diet. Beer is loaded with carbohydrates. I tried his diet, and, it works, but, I got tired of bacon and eggs every day. Ken Hicks said he went on a two week diet and lost 14 days.

My preference tends toward lagers, though I do enjoy a stout occasionally. But I mostly drink bottled beers that are made from what I call unprocessed water: from springs, or made in small cities that have relatively clean water. Most of the bottled beers here in Ottawa are made in Toronto, with city water.

I will NOT drink any bottled beer made from city water from Toronto or Montreal.

Ah, Vermont now has a host of nifty microbreweries doing good things. Otter Creek, Trout River (a new one we'll have to sample when you get here in September Turtle.) Tunbridge (I think she's still brewing good stuff) Magic Hat (Not my favorite, but if you like sweeter flavors, they do interesting stuff and the labels are amazing). Alas, I have been scrounging through seven/elevens looking for the last remaining six packs of Catamount Porter, but rumor has it they may be bought, and kept pretty much as-is by Harpoon. Let's all hope so.

Now, we should start the favorites on the other three food groups don'5 you think? Chocolate favorites, garlic favorites, coffee favorites. Food, drink and music are pretty inseperable in my book.

Morticia, at7.5%alchohol, I'm not surprised Abbott doesn't like you!

Still their IPA is pretty good. So is their Mild as I remember.

On the whole, looks like us Mudcatters are a load of Pissheads!

Cheers

Bugsy
