    Keeping in mind all their beers (obviously we don't know them all but hopefully people voting have a good idea of at least most of the better-known ones) ie if a country produces 100 great beers but 1000 bad ones, they lose to one who produces 10 great beers and only 1 bad one, etc.

    Micro-brews are the best. So I guess I am sort of screwing up the thread. My apologies.

    ha - not at all, feel free to chime in. Just don't screw up the voting. ;)

    IMO microbrews are overrated because a lot of people think like you do ie if it's "microbrew" it's great. phooey. Plenty of crap microbrews out there IMO.

    In England, US beer is known as "making love in a canoe."

    When I was living in SE Asia, the weirdest thing happened. I was enjoying Dutch, Brit, Belgian, and Aussie beer from the local dispensary. (Muslim country, expats get beer) So, the very first time American 'Budweiser' shows up in the dispensary, it sells out! The goofy European expats think it is fasionable to drink American branded beer. They loved it...go figure.

    :rolleyes: Only by ignorant fools or people who just time-warped in from 1970. America is one hell of a lot more than that Bud and Miller swill and much of it is darker and heavier than most English beer.




    I hear Bud made in Germany is actually good beer, but can't say.
