Who makes the best beer?

Post  greasyspoon on Sun 18 Dec - 5:32

We've got loads of brews in Britain, a few are good but a lot are crap. Who do you think makes the best beer? My money is on Belgium.

.. even if this may sound typical, but i believe the best beer comes from here in germany. Sorry. We do not have so many different brews, but good ones. One of the biggest varieties i ever saw was over in the states, they have an aboundance of brews, many of them are also really good. But i grew up on our staff and love it. And the alcohol content of course, that helps too.

Of course that is Belgium !!

We have so many brews not all are the best , but we brew also the best real 'Trappist' and your occasional beer.

Great Britain , Scotland , Holland (La Trappe) and Germany scoring good as we go but Belgium stands with neck and shoulders above all.

cheers ; drinking a Duvel as we speak.

i agree,
some of my belgium favorits are:

most tripple match whit another passion of me: smoking pipe whit a good whisky pipe tobaco.

we went to the 'beer temple' here they sell al the belgium brewed beers. and that are a lot of different beers.......

I've got to agree with you Belgies but I forgot to mention the fantastic Deutche bier. I think German beer is exceptional also which has probably more to do with their purity laws which makes it so consistently good. I worked in Dusseldorf for one year back in 1985 and and loved the Alt bier, although the Pils was equally as brilliant. But for good beer across a wide variety of brews it's still Belgian for me. If you want to drink all day though and not fall under a table there are many small English brewery ales that have good taste that will do the job.

If you talk about beer, Belgium is the one.
If you talk about pilsener or pils then there is no difference between most of the countries. As long as you don't mention Budweiser (the american version) and Heiniken (dutch horsepiss) everything is OK.

The best beers are made in Belgium, no doubt about that.
