Totally in before the close. Beer talk is a good way to end this thread.

Sam Adams gets expensive, but they sure have variety.

The variety of Sam Adams is excellent!

I seriously doubt any Swedish beers is famous outside Scandinavia. We really do make bad beers (in general).
The best beer from Sweden is Runöl (http://www.runol.com/images/start_karolina_liten.jpg), the company have ofcourse been sold to Germany now but I think they are still brewed just a few miles from me. That beer is world class on. But like I said, don't think that beer is over there... unless you find a bar with hundreds or thousands of different brands.

Runöl is great wether it is lager or ale.

The problem with American beers is most of it is "pale ale" and we like our beers cold.

We really do love our beer though, but most people buy the same ****.

Like Bud light or Miller lite.

Buying a six pack of beer of whatever brand downtown Philly is expensive. Unless someone knows where the heck the cheap ones are, the liquer stores did not have any beers and they told me to go to a bars who sold "to go" beer.... damn... that was more expensive than here. Maybe I should put this Q to visitors guide thread.

You can blame WWII for that one. Men went off to fight and the major brewers focused on a "unisex" beer, which is generally what you get now, because mainly women were left at home to continue to drink. Men came back and the brewers were making to much money to change anything, hence we have 3 major brewers that brew practically the same thing only with slight differences.

I can understand that when it is very hot a smoother lager (hope you understand) is much better. But winter time your pale ales, which I love very much, should be sold more?

Edit:
Oh yeah, and Swedes are the same, buying the same **** over and over again. Most popular here are Swedish brands like Åbro Orginal and Pripps Blå, taste like ****....

Edit 2: Oh yeas, I got censoured, but I said the dirt word.

WWII also rationed grains, making barley super expensive and bringing in rice/corn as filler which seriously dilutes the flavor.

During the summer, a Sam Adams Summer Ale (smooth ale) is incredible right out of the fridge or on tap.

Cold, smooth and refreshing.

During the winter, I'm much more inclined to grab a Guiness, also cold. I dont know of many people in America who will drink ANY beer warm.

I believe in Europe, it's quite common to drink beer warm.

...****ing Nazis trying to ruin everything...

I actually had a 6-pack of Warsteiner Verum recently which was really solid, I always like a nice pilsner.

Best beer I ever had is the Golden Ale from St. Peter's Brewery on tap, just godly, they also do a damn good porter.

Maybe the Brittish and the Irish lads want it warm. I drink cold aswell, even Guiness.

I am glad I put the right word there, smooth, I was not sure....damn... I wish i had more beers home now. I was just drinking a Tuborg

Speaking of Guinness, I like it a lot on tap, but I don't like it much bottled, anyone else have this problem? Obviously there's always a difference, but I notice it a lot more with Guinness for some reason.

I brewed my first batch a couple months ago, worked out okay, not great. I'm hoping to try again soon. Maybe make a nice spicy high ABV winter ale.

Got the equipment for my birthday, but 100% chance my dad got it online. I'm trying to figure out a good place for ingredients, which is a small part of the hold up on a second batch.

Guinness on tap usually uses nitrogen, instead of CO2. Makes for a creamy feel. It's harder to reproduce in the bottle.

I drank Tuborg in the Paris McDonalds and Burger Kings... Great deal.

Also, when I was in Paris in '95/'96 I drank a great beer made with Scotch Whiskey named, Aldescott... I was only able to get it once in the States in Alexandria VA, and it was past dated and no longer stocked. This Spring in Rome I found it and drank a bottle at the Trevi Fountain -- great day, indeed

Italy is a great place to drink beer... It is cheap there, and far more affordable than soft drinks like Coke or Pepsi. It is able to be purchased at all sorts of stores and enjoyed on the street or Piazza; it is at times included in a meal like soda would be in America. The local beers Peroni and Nationale, or Moretti are cheapest, but even the imports are reasonable... I'd guess that they are not taxed like the American and (especially) Canadian... Many times in very large cheap bottles. Draughts are more expensive, but still very reasonable... I drank a lot of beer there.

Inside at Columbus Market has a sweet home brew shop with all that stuff needed... or it seems to be nice, anyway; I don't brew, I buy.
