    I hate beer, but that is likely because I've only ever had American beer.

    What beer do you usually drink, if you do? Is American really crap compared to, say, German?

    I can't get past the smell, so I don't get to drink it. I can't even taste it, really. Not like I haven't tried, but eww.

    I just made a comment about this on another post where you were talking about the Beer Summit. So i'll repeat it :)

    I had some beer when i was in Germany that i believe came from Switzerland? A friend of my sons bought him a bottle (over $20!) and he shared it with me. This beer you have to SIP...it burns going down! I don't care for dark beer, but this did actually taste pretty good. And boy was it strong!!

    I really do love beer, but i can't even drink the Bud lights or any like it anymore. In Michigan we have a local beer brewed in Kalamazoo called Oberon (made by Bells Brewery) - it's a lot like the light wheat type beer you can get in Germany (can't remember the name of it!). The problem is it's only a summer ale so we can't get it during the winter months. So then we get Blue Moon, or Shock Top. Those are both light ales and much stronger than stuff like Bud. You should try it - i don't know what state you're in but i know Blue Moon & shock top are sold in other states (i bought it in NC before).

    Before edit, you said where it was from. Where do you get it, online?

    That was my next question!! Can a home-brewer make better beer than the big-name crap in the States? And how do you go about learning of/implementing different recipes?

    There are some good wheat beers (hefeweizen) that can be had in the winter months, but they are harder to find...
