My favorite brew is __Cold_________?

It's prob easier for me to list the beers I don't like. I don't like Belgian Ales, Witbier, Bochs, Spiced Beers or wheat beer.

My favorites are Stouts and Porters. I am also a big fan of European Lager and Bitters having grown up in England (15 year old US kid in the pubs, yes sir!). In the US, we have had an explosion of craft breweries over the last few years...which explains my explosive weight gain.

In the chart you posted (Admin), Founders Porter is very tasty. Founders is one of my top 3 breweries (for bottle purchase at the stores). I don't like the Green Zebra though! To salty!

If anyone is on Untappd (social media beer app), hit me up, I'm muensterDeath on there to....

My Favourite Brew Is....

Probably very un Australian....

But for a decent "Brew" you can't beat a nice cup of Tea, Ceylon, and Darjeeling blend preferably....

If pushed, a glass of Merlot is nice, and for special occasions (because its so expensive over here) a bottle of Amarone (Italian Red) is just about as good as it gets..

The Aussie's really love their Beer, its not unusual, out in the country where I live, to see guys driving along with a beer in their hand. They call it having a "Roadie" Bizarre, but true.

Suzanne.

There are so many good beers now and so little time to enjoy them :) My local beer is Shepherd Neame who style themselves as Britain's oldest brewer. Known locally as "shits and screams" by people who have had a bad pint. One of our larger supermarkets carry some of their beers described a Kentish Ale which is pretty good and a very good Porter (like Guinness, but not as heavy)

Many moons ago I spent some time in the Midwest of the US. It was not good on the beer front. Pabst Blue Ribbon and Budweiser (or as we called it "buttwiper") Then one day we discovered a bar in another state that had crates of Theakstones Old Peculiar. For some unknown reason they were languishing on their shelves unwanted. We bought up the lot for peanuts. My American friends were not overly impressed, but my brothers and I were delighted. Nowadays there is a much better selection available in America, but this was nearly 40 years ago.

I quite like Suzanne's suggestion of Ceylon and Darjeeling (the Champagne of tea) However my favourite is a blend of Earl Gray and Assam.

I was in your beautiful country last weekend ( my family owns an apartment in Nieuwpoort :wink2:)
I must say that I live in Alsace but I was born in Lille and that all my youth happened more in Belgium than in France :grin2:

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and my home state has a reputation that most in the United States have heard of. When our Wisconsin Badgers football team travels to other states, the fans that follow have been known to drink stadiums and/or bars in the host city out of beer altogether. Now that my metabolism isn't what it was in my 20's, I've slowed down a lot with the beer drinking, but every Fall I can't wait to get my hands on a Schell's Octoberfest (made in Minnesota seasonally, and my absolute favorite) or an oatmeal Porter from 612 Brewery in Northeast Minneapolis. I love picking up a 64oz growler of porter and loading into my fizzics beer dispensor for an afternoon of watching football in front of a nice fire. Good times!

Maybe it was the festivities that made the beer better, but everything I drank in Munich during Oktoberfest was pretty much the best beer I've ever had. So much Hofbräu within one week.

Rode to a local brewery this afternoon for a glass and fill a growler. Temp below 32F. Was only 4.5 miles from the house, so not bad. Sunny, good reason to get the bike warmed up. Fogged up the face shield!

1st glass was Double IPA from Old Bust Head Brewery. Growler filled with "Gold Cup", which is an Russian Imperial Stout, from the same brewery, and being enjoyed on my workbench.

Love the look of your growler/mini-keg!

During my Army time, I was in Suffield, Alberta in Canada, training for Tank battles and firing war ammunition! This was late seventies and we were drinking Labatts 50 and Labatts Blue in the little stubby bottles; apparently this is/was French beer! (PFEN is probably shakin his head now :)) But I loved it!:grin2: Never saw it again after that.

Today though; after hearing from my doctor that I should avoid things with barley in it; (among a whole load of other things), I stick mainly to a nice glass of red wine and as long as it's not too dry, I'm fine with most! South African, Australian Yellow Tail, Californian, (got a fable for the Gallo Zinfandel:wink2:) Italian, and even Greek Imiglikos :smile2:

CHEERS!:grin2:
