    A very big hello to all our mates from the abroad ! 😀
    Just a short note to inform you that our Reverend has opened a good topic
    called “La Birra” (the beer).
    Please feel free to post all you local and famous “amber fluids” (as the Aussies say!!! 😉 )
    and it will surely be a great experience to share.
    Cheers and all the best to you !!!

    Over the last 15 years or so, what we call microbreweries in the US have gotten very popular. There’s a technical distinction on how much beer is produced to be called a microbrewery, but I don’t know what that is.

    The main focus is Old World style methods to produce better beers than the standard Budweiser, Miller, etc. Some of my personal favorites (and some of these have become bigger than microbrews):
    Shiner Bock, from Shiner, TX – the best all around barbecue beer I know.
    Turbo Dog, from Louisiana – a strong, hoppy beer
    Black Dog Ale, from Minnesota – a very smooth brown ale

    Euro beers I like include:
    Fuller ESB, England
    Bellhaven Scottish Ale, Scotland
    Guinness Stout, Ireland
    Sam Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, England (see a trend here?) 🙂

    Curt,
    Does that mean you like them dark? 😆
    I once went to a Indianapolis beer tasting festival with my father, where you could sample brews from Indiana brewers. So much of it was very dark, and I kept giving my samples to my father……needless to say, my stepmom drove them home! 😆
    I love different beers, but light, not dark.
    The ONLY beer that I absolutely hate is Coors. Just has a funny taste.

    I can’t imagine the situation at that tasting festival… 😉
    In Europe we have Oktoberfest in Munich,Germany…never went at all,but
    guess it will be seriuosly dangerous…the minimum quantity served is 1 liter (two pints…!)
    Then wurstel (frankfurters) everywhere…!!!
    Cheers and all the best !

    I like dark beers, but the trend I was talking about was that all my favorites are British beers. The only dark one in there is Guinness Stout; the rest aren’t all that dark.

    I see. I’m not very well versed on foreign beers! Guess I need to get out more.

    Hello cmcadams, if I have not understood badly, for of my insufficient English, they taste to you British dark beers …… GUINNESS is just Irish like greater stout more famous like the MURPHI and CAFFREY’S and BEAMISH. The only English beer stout that I know and NOURISHING STOUT, than sincerely I do not feel myself to prefer the Irishes.

    Hello cmcadams from the Reverend….

    P.S. On hand for whichever info.

    Yes, Guinness is just a brand, a brewery in Ireland that makes a form of stout. For some reason, though, British beers seem to fit my tastes better than most others, though I like others as well.

    From down under…

    For too long Australians have been fed one bland lager after another. Aussies argue till they are blue in the face that this beer (which just happens to be the one they grew up with) is better than that beer (which isn’t), or, if they have a good job and reject their local beer in a fit of snobbery, that this premium lager is better than any other. But really, like Eskimos arguing over snow, there isn’t much between them when the full range of possible beer experiences is considered. And if you did pay that extra cash for the premium beer for its taste, then why aren’t you drinking it out of a glass? Every beer lover knows you lose 90% of the beer experience out of the bottle.

    Anyway, for all you people out there that do care about craft beer, about tasting something that makes you stop and think, that isn’t just another crisp, golden, great-on-a-hot-day-out-of-an-esky lager, then the Malt-Shovel’s Hop Thief is for you.

    Carlo68 what do you think??? Maggie

    Eheh..our angelic Maggie has shown a real behaviour about the world of beers ! (-:/
    Very frankly,I love lagers and perhaps bitter on draught (only when,rarely,I go into a British/Scottish pub in Verona,or when I have the opportunity to jump over the British Channel /() ).
    I had a great and lovely experience when I went to Aussie…I tried VB for the first time,but needless to say that I really enjoyed the pubs in Melbourne and Adelaide,which are serving dozens of lovely lagers…it was absolutely great !
