Kaubel, if you're ever willing to spend 10 bucks for a six-pack, try out Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. Best beer I've ever had, bar none.

Very "hopsy" flavor, but not much bitterness. Definitely check it out.

beer discussions and I missed the first part, zomg i must be committing some sort of crime against the nation right now

I suppose I can slide on over to Belgium and have some beer there too.

put in a Tauren Flex and the first Duvel is on me ;)

speaking of which, most of you seem to prefer lagers, any Stella/Jupiler drinkers? I know when i went to i17 (lan in england) and took a 6pack with me they were heavily fought over, but not as bad as the 6pack of Duvel
for those who don't know Duvel (translated it would be Devil), go and try, it's been pretty commercialized nowadays so you should be able to find a (specialist)shop near you that sells it
careful tho, 8,5% alcohol ;)

I've always been partial to Smithwick's, though I take care not to mention this around German friends for fear of riducule or disownment. Affections of youth, I suppose.

Another vote for Boddingtons, however.

Maybe I am a plebeian, but I have been to Germany/Ireland (of course tasted their beer), and I really don't notice much of a difference between Euro Beer and US stuff (like Sam Adams/Bud).

In fact, my favorite beer is Bud Select.

I have to recommend Hoegaarden as was mentioned earlier in the thread - as an Englishman, it's a nice change to have something a bit lighter compared to an English ale or bitter (I can't abide lager most of the time). Very refreshing to drink during the summer. If I can't get Hoegaarden, I find Leffe a nice alternative.

If you want something English and heavier, I can recommend Black Sheep Bitter - a northern concoction, it has a nice strong flavour.

As for saying that Guinness fills you up, a pint of Guinness has 500 calories - that's 1/5th of the average male's expected daily income. Drink 2 pints and that's 1000 out of 2500....

Sam Adams is quite nice actually, but Hoegaarden is really where it's at. When I was holidaying in France recently, I was buying the stuff at about 2 euro (3.2 AUD) per 1L bottle. Come back to Australia, and it's about 4x that price. Someone in France could make a killing CoDing this stuff to me.

I'm pretty sure that Guinness has fewer calories than most beers. It has a lower alcohol content, which is why. I recall the figure being about half yours: 250ish per pint. I'll look it up when I get a chance.

Magic Hat is *worth checking out*. But only if you're buying it from a trusted liquor store or bar. If it's not kept cool during storage, it loses a LOT more than most other beers.

pretty much every non-light beer except Corona. its like 160 calories.

That's correct.

I'm not sure if any of you have tried Tiger Beer but that's a perennial favorite in Singapore. It's cheap but I prefer Guinness and Heineken to it.

i cant bring myself to like heineken, i have alot of family in the Netherlands, and perhaps for someone who isn't used to belgian lager (think stella) heineken is perfectly fine but to me it really is bland

Oh hell yes. Let me check those pesky customs laws first :D

Is Guinness fattening? How many calories does it contain?
Guinness is no more fattening or calorific than any other beer of similar alcoholic strength. The beer has no fat, however it does contain protein, sugar, carbohydrates and alcohol. The alcohol accounts for 65-75% of the calorific content irrespective of the beer in question. Per pint, Draught Guinness has 210 calories; as a reference, one pint of semi-skimmed milk has 260 calories and one pint of orange juice has 220 calories. Draught Guinness actually has fewer calories than most other premium beers and lagers.

Found it on the interweb, so it must be true! Makes sense though. I think the thing is just so damn thick it feels like a meal.

I liked Heineken for the longest time, but I started to notice that it always gave me a headache after 1 or 2; I don't really have that problem with lagers though, so I made the switch.

This is a pretty decent resource: http://www.theraven.com/beer.html .

Speaking of Guinness though, I learned the hard way not to order a carbomb in an irish pub.

I favor ales and stouts over lagers, even Stella didn't impress me all that much.

Guinness, mmm. I like trying other stouts but Guinness is popular for a reason methinks.

Sam Adams Cherry Wheat is good stuff. Couldn't find it for about 5 years here in Vegas but the liquor store down the street started selling it again, I'm a happy man. Too sweet to drink all the time but its a nice change from the heavier stuff.

I keep going back to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, its a touch bitter but oh so drinkable.

And how about Chimay Blue? Heavenly stuff.

My two (not-so-informed) sents.
