    It's even got suspension so "precious" doesn't get too jostled.

    I think I found a new friend. Too bad it is probably filled with domestic beer. yeck!

    Maybe it is due to the fact that the bike is leaning a bit but that looks way too small for him.

    I think he was probably refering to domestic water like bud, coors, etc, not to domestic mircro brews and handcrafted beers....even then, comparing hand crafted beer to hand crafted beer, I think most would agree that euro beer is generally better.


    ...if you're referring to fresh domestic types like bud, coors, etc, then I'd be willing to guess you've been riding without a helmet.

    Domestic or imported is not the question.
    Is it Ale or Lager?
    That is the question.

    ugh

    domestic=coors, budweiser, miller, etc
    holy jeebus people!

    Anyhow, my favorite beer tends to be a non micro or craft beer brewed in fort collins. Fat tire is good stuff.

    disagree completely. I love good American beers and we have a ton of them, but after living in europe for just a few years, it was easy to determine that generally their beers are much better. Just my opinion.

    Opinions, opinions, opinions...

    I figure my taste buds are just as qualified to make a judgement as anyone else's, I've been a homebrewer for nearly 15 years. I've made some really good beers and I've also produced some real swill. I've also consumed beer all over the world... from South Korea to Israel to the good old USA.

    So here's my take on it:

    Drink what you like. I'll pretty much drink anything liquid. Early in my homebrewing days, I used to preach the virtues of any beer except the American mega-brews. Budweiser, Miller, Coors... they were to be avoided at all costs. But you know what? I'll put those up against any mass produced beer from anywhere. The biggest selling beer in Germany? Warsteiner... have you tasted Warsteiner? Nothing special. The thing that tickles me is that most people don't even know what they're tasting. Take the holy grail of lagers, Pilsener Urquell. Folks here in the USA pay an arm and a leg to buy Pilsener Urquell... and they drink it and rave about its superior taste, blah blah blah. But about 99% of the Urquell sold outside Europe is stale... downright skunky. Now fresh Pilsener Urquell is really really good, but most Americans have never had a taste of fresh Urquell. The green bottles that Pilsener Urquell comes in provide little protection from light and spoilage. But people love it because they're SUPPOSED to love it. Whatever.

    The thing that I admire about American megabeers is consistency. You can open a Bud in New Jersey or in Oregon... you'll get the same taste wherever you go. That is incredibly hard to do... if you're a brewer then you know what I mean. But don't compare the American megabrews to the handcrafted Eurobrews... or vice versa.

    So drink what you please... and enjoy!

    Suspension parts dedicated to the rider: 0
    Suspension parts dedicated to the keg: 2

    Am I crazy for enjoying Michelob Ultra Amber? It's not a great beer, but for a light, it really hits the spot.

    Yeah, absolutely - Bitburger is incredibly popular in Germany, too, and it's awful. Gosser is Grosser...
