This brewery making pretty good beer.
I love paulaner for beer, but I prefer cider. Unfortunately, they are trying to advertise cider as something fancy rather than cheap piss that comes in liter bottles that chavs drink, so it's 13 dollars a 12 pack which is way too fucking much.
Meanwhile, if I wanted cheap beer, it comes in a 36 pack for 10 dollars.
Eisenbahn is legitimately better than the German beers I've had the opportunity to drink.
>beer tastes like piss
>beer makes you fat
>beer gives you bad hangovers
the only reason to drink it, is that if you're so insecure about your sexuality that you don't dare to order the good shit
Favorite beer I couldn't say, favorite breweries are both French tho, "Brasserie des Garrigues" and "Brasserie Corrézienne"
>>beer makes you fat
Sugar makes you fat and strong alcohol have far more of it
Lol it's the opposite with me and all the beer drinkers I know, maybe because beer has so much water in it you don't dehydrate the same you would with vodka
>Tastes like piss
Don't worry for fags like you fruit flavored beers exist
>tfw still drinking šnops like my forefathers
Beer is disgusting, I dont understand people who drink it. Tastes like piss, smells like piss, and is as useless as any other soft drink, but this one also makes you fat.
beers are usually not sold by 6 when they come in 50cl. in metal can, a Paulaner costs about 1.8€, in glass can it goes by 2.2€ (but you're given 10cts back for every glass can you return to the shop)
but keep in mind these are Paris prices, where my parents live (next to Belgium border and not very far from the German one), you can easily discount 50cts
We simply drink this but in alcohol. It tastes great, you can take one small glass of it with lunch, or you can drink 2 bigger glasses of it to get drunk.. never understood the use of beer. I dont understand all these football hooligans and teenagers who try to push it as a legit drink.
Construction crews are also known to drink beer, but they do it because you cant get drunk from it...
this 2bh, most local beer got turned into piss over the last 5 or so years.
What's there not to like in vodka? Its so smooth nice. You feel all the nuances of the ethanol burning through you. No artificial flavours, just the essence of what makes the daily grind livable.
Every beer thread is the same, people who drink it never answer why they do it.. it tastes bad, makes you fat, and you cant even get drunk from it.
Wine is for one purpose, moonshine/rakija/vodka for another, and beer is completely pointless.
>midwest fuckhole nobody cares about
>shitty piss beer
goes hand in hand.
Really hard to say. Brother Thelonious is one of my favorite right now. I think its like 9% alcohol which is nice for a dark beer since they can be hard to drink a lot of. Sierra Nevada is also one of my standbys if I want a decent beer.
If I'm drinking cheap beer to get drunk I'm not too picky. Even though I'm from St. Louis I hate Bud lights tho. Rather drink a Natty Light which doesn't have any flavor rather than piss-water BL's. We also have some decent local microbrews. Schlafly is good, but Urban Chestnut and Two Hands are better.
>You feel all the nuances of the ethanol burning through you.
This is what's wrong for me
I'm not drinking to forget about life I have weed for that, I'm drinking because I enjoy the taste
My first beer was a Tennants and I've never tasted anything like it since. Maybe because it was my first, but at that time it was really good and makes me long for Scotland.
I also bought some Belgian imported dark beer, which was toplad.
I most often drink Hansa, Fryndelund or mead here home, though
Terrible hangover though. I like wine and the slap happy drunk, but the hangover is a major draw back. You also can't drink wine and anything else on the same night without getting sick whereas I can drink beer and take a few shots of whiskey and be fine.
No, THIS is piss beer (my fav on a budget)
Nice bait lemme still answer
>Why drink it
If we're talking about shit industrial beer because
-it easy to drink (doesn't burn, isn't strong)
If we're talking proper beer
-dozens and dozens of different styles and type so very diverse taste
-great beer is affordable, great wine often isn't
>Makes you fat
No more than any other alcohol as long as you don't drink severla liters daily
>Can't get drunk
Oh yes you can, you just have to drink enough. It's easy to get drunk on vodka, but getting drunk on beer demands skill because you have to drink a lot
hmmm where have i seen this before
Favorite is too hard here's 10 beers I love in no particular order
Green Flash West Coast IIPA
Stone Cali Belge IPA
Stone Your Father Smelt of Elderberries
Omme Gang Three Philosophers
Karl Strauss Red Trolley Ale
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Anchor Steam Beer
Ninsaki Dawn of the Red IRA
Firestone Walker 805
I could list more, but that's too much already
Don't be mad because your idea of a fine beverage is Coors Lite m8
>two cuck states arguing over who is the least cuck
That is adorable.
It's not even good, I just really like it for some reason.
I drink fancy beers as well, but I love this one.
* someone likes something other than me, how horrible, probably a fag
* i don't drink alcohol, thought you should know
* i hate beer, thought you should know
* enter the pseudo-scientist arguing about matters of taste and sexuality
* ... butthurt ensues
* i don't have a favorite beer, beer is disgusting, bla bla
* mass-produced beer is shit and people who drink it are idiots
>>53528011 (remarkable foresight)
* more pisswater references and how much better vodka is
* pure piss references
* microbrewery theme slowly creeping in
short summary of a beer thread
Kek Gambrinus 10° is considered piss by pretty much everyone here, the 11° Excellent on the other hand is one of the best mass produced czech beers imo
Because good beer dosen't taste bad, you moron. The taste of a good beer is one of the great pleasures in life.
I think people like you either just have shit taste, or have only tried cheap mass produced lagers.
No, I mean I don't understand how it's possible for someone not to enjoy a thick warm imperial Stout.
It's like someone saying that sex they find sex unpleasant or that cocaine puts them to sleep. Just fucking baffles me.
My brother went to culinary school. Said "the first 10 batches you make will be shit"
But yeah, I don't know how it's gonna work. I'm paranoid all the yeast will be used up and I'll be left with beer with no fizz. Or that my boil was too hot and I'll be left with non alcoholic beer
Wheat beer is no.1 for me, but I fucking love beer in general so I drink all sorts of styles (except IPA, drinking that is retarded if you're in Europe).
You can reduce it, bit once you go to sleep you get mild methenol poisoning before waking up. The effects of that are still feel able even after more drinks.
I'd rather not feel sick for an hour every morning until I can force enough more alchohol in myself to feel better.
I cheated a bit as I used a kit. My next one is going to be made from scratch though.
Best beer i ever had.
>Thank you Czech
But best form Serbia is Jelen.
I heard that 'murrican beer is like piss compered to european, is it true?
Literally, and I mean quite L I T E R A L L Y a fedora in liquid format
And again, it's baffling to me. It's not like somebody having a distaste for seafood, it's like a guy telling you he hate the feeling of a blowjob.
Ah well, I suppose some folks are just fucked in the head.
>drinking le beer with reddit-tier marketing
damn, in Serbia I can find it in one caffe and it cost a lot (well, for me, i am poor student after all)
I had last on Beer Fest in Belgred few months ago but I would remove something for one
Probably because I'm used to it, but it really tastes nice
>tfw makro here sold close to expiration 50l kegs for 10€
i've been really impressed with the latest stuff from Genesee Brew House
for a maker of cheap beer, the scotch ale, black IPA, and new Porter have all been top notch
Big fan of erdinger dunkel. Gonna drink this until my autism tells me it's enough.
Mein Standardbier in Österreich ist üblicherweise Zwettler Original. Zwettler macht generel einige interessante Sachen in letzter Zeit. Zum Beispiel ihr Sanjana IPA das ich sehr empfehlen kann.
ITT Mostly plebs with shit taste. The best beers are german and belgian. My personal favorites are trappist rochefort and ayinger doppelbock celebrator.
inb4 >muh microbrews
fuck american beer
Hirter ist auch noch ein Geheimtipp. Gehört auch nicht zur ewigen Braujudion
>he thinks german beer is good because hollywood told him
What, you think Europeans drink exclusively large scale commercial beer?
Americans finally start getting their shit together and getting on the level of Europe opposed to the pisswater college beers everyone had been drinking and retards like you ignore the immense amount of variety in it
Who /homebrew/ here? Whatcha been brewin'?
Just bought the ingredients for an american strong ale recipe I made. Gonna try to brew it this weekend at the brewery I work at. I hope it turns out well, the ingredients cost me a fortune.
I'm sort of a local-patriot. Also our Systembolag don't have the biggest options to chose from...
gonna try my hand at beer during weekend (brewed wine for ages) because i stumbled upon a shitload of maltose extract. thinking about doing something heretic with it like cherry beer or pumpkin beer with honey(because i happen to have all of them sitting around). even got a chemist to do me a spreadsheet about how to dose the right amount of maltose and acids to get a decent result lol
according to the World Beer Cup the Americans generally brew the world's best beers, because of micro and small scale breweries
mein Geheimtipp ist Hitler; auch wenn ich finde, dass kriminelle Ausländer abgeschoben werden sollten
I'd really like to do a pumpkin beer one of these days, especially since it's becoming harder and harder for me to find the kind of pumpkin beers I like, dry, gourdy, subtly spiced, ones that don't overpower the malt flavor, instead of the strong, sugary, liquid pumpkin pies that most breweries chuck out in the fall.
I'll probably use an amber lager like marzen for the base.
sounds like a plan. definitely lager, light on the hops. what kind of spices are popular there in brews? here it's mostly: clove, ginger and nutmeg (i'm considering also fennel seeds)
Literally all fags besides the french guy ( never thought I'd ever say that).
Austria is bad bc their beer is shit
>a fucking leaf
>clove, ginger and nutmeg
Yep, all I'd need to do is add cinnamon and those four combine to make "pumpkin spice."
I'd go with a tradition-oriented marzen recipe, so no American hops, probably just hallertauer. I would like to get a noticeable bit of noble hop aroma and flavor though, because I think that would go well with the vegetal taste of pumpkin.
well at least he's right about Ayinger being great
that said, Belgians also make some top tier stuff
>drinking the piss jew
>tastes like shit
>literally a meme "drink", LETS DRINK GUYz xDDD
Quality wine or delicious flavored drinks like mojitos is the only answer
>tha-ts a girly d-drink, a-are you a f-aggot, beer is for the man xDDDDD
Insecury over a fucking drink, BEERKEKS ARE FUCKING PATHETHIC
There's sort of a difference between legal definition and conventional definition.
Let's say you buy an IPA that's 7% abv. It might say "malt liquor" in extremely small text somewhere on the label, because that's what the legal definition is, but no one would actually refer to IPAs as malt liquor. Malt liquors are a very specific kind of cheap, strong beer that typically come in 40oz bottles.
Or six of these fuckers
only beer I've tried that doesn't taste like piss
and it's brewed in Germany
Kraut flavored Blitz Piss
>all these lager countries saying beer tastes like piss
Nah french bro
Ive tried many IPAs and my brother swears by them
Even mail orders special brands to try
Gets me to try every single one
They all taste like >>53536378
Every single fucking one
Well if you don't like bitterness they're not for you
Which doesn't really matter since you just have to pick from the tons of other different beers there are
pale ales don't fall under the category of what is generally considered an american macro, ie, lagers with shitty ingredients. anheuser busch for instance doesn't produce a pale ale to my knowledge.
Nigger i get along with my little brother but his taste in beer is shit and i cant wait for this fucking trend to pass and see hopefully better beers emerge other than the current shit being sold as trendy
Quite hard to get access to good quality beer here since I live in a small town but even the big towns aren't that well supplied with "novelty" bear.
My beer of choice is Heineken/Carlsberg.
American hopped beers are supposed to taste piney and citrusy. They're usually an acquired taste, I know I didn't like them when I first started drinking but now I find them really refreshing.
Kind of annoying now a days walk into most american bars more than half the selection is some shit IPAs and lots of people having weird shit with obscure names at house parties like donkey dick ipa,witch dildo ipa, or some other edgy trendy sounding bullshit
>Dude weed lmao
It's good beer, you just don't like it. I agree that IPAs are oversaturated in the market, but they taste fine to me, bitterness and pine resin flavors, and all.
Fortunately a new beer meme is on the rise that may threaten the IPAs dominance in the near future. Hope you like sour beers.
Also I really wanna try this, is it any good?
Oh, I meant that I like American macros but when it comes to pale ales they can come from pretty much any country.
I dunno. The Budweiser we get in Sweden doesnt taste like a typical Czech lager, like Starobrno or Staropramen.
Yeah same here craft brewering is on the rise in France and I know tons of obscure beers with weird names. Despite the hipster/whatever aspect of it most of them taste good, I know 3 beer cellars in my city (places selling bottled beers from all over the world, I don't how what to call that in English) and buy several every weeks they're worth it.
It's like wine it takes a while to forge one's taste, to know about beers, but once you are into it the possibilities are endless
I get them in Spain since I live near the border, it's an average lager but with a real taste of hemp/weed. No THC inside but you can taste the plant
Pic related is the evolution of the number of craft breweries in France last year
absolutyely, go for it mate
with three or four you can have a good evening
idk, there are not a lot of places where Bud is for sale in France
damn, Erdinger is really more popular than I thought
Yes that's it
Although I know one in Montpellier that's a bar (4 taps, different beers everyday) and also sells more than 500 different beers in bottle
Also i'm drinking this right now, barley wine from a local brewery
>the American attitude of MAKE IT BIGGER
I kind of like this attitude desu
We don't even just do it with hops. Take the gose, a German sour wheat beer made with salty water and coriander, for example. Those are starting to become popular in the States, but traditional German goses (gosen?) are usually pretty sublte, more tart and not all that salty.
The brewery I work at makes a gose that's puckeringly sour, noticeably, with a pronounced wheat-bready finish. Fucking over the top and I love it. The brewery down the street took it even farther. "Sour and salty? Fuck it, let's throw in some dill and a splash of pickle brine and make a pickle-flavored gose!" and even that one's great. I stop by there to get a glass of it over other week or so.
First time I tasted it was in my last year of highschool I used to drink sometimes at noon with a friend, with beers we'd buy in a supermarket close to the school and one time we each bought a 75cl (blond) one
Seriously we're a wine country but our beers are on the rise, slowly and steadily beer in France is getting rid of its bad clichés (stuff you drink to get wasted in front of a football macth) to become a drink of many faces
Our beers are starting to win some medals in contests, I know of about 4 different breweries in a 30km radius around my hometown...
Shit's getting real
>he doesn't own his own industrial brewery
It's not hard to make good beer, dude. Great beer takes more finesse sure, but check this out.
1oz hallertauer per 5 gals at 60min
pitch 1 packet of hefeweizen yeast
Boom, assuming you didn't fuck this up, you've just made a perfectly drinkable hefeweizen.
It's really weird to me seeing Brown Ale is popular in other countries. It's not even popular here in the NE of England anymore.
pic related is my nearest brewery and their collection has been growing a lot recently. The Raspberry Porter in particular is great
any dutchmen want to drink with me? i even got a mug in a size you're used to!
> it's an average lager but with a real taste of hemp/weed. No THC inside but you can taste the plant
Are they made with actual marijuana or American hops that taste and smell like marijuana (chinook, for instance)
Fun fact: in beer tasting terminology, the descriptor for marijuana-like aromas and flavors is "dank"
none of these are IPAs, i know brits generally don't like them.
>High water brewing
My beer shop has 3-4 of them, I wish I could try them but they're awfully expensive, 20 euros a 75cl bottle
And it's like this everywhere I see them, they have other nice breweries (Sierra Nevada; Anchor Brewery...) for cheap prices but those ones are always unaffordable
There are better beers out there, but it's decent, local,and reasonably priced
Best beer coming through.
>looks like fucking coke
>screw cap on beer
At least it looks like shit. Bet it doesn't taste better than it looks.
I have absolutely no idea
That being said for the news it kinda makes sense, it's 24 as in "24h of news"
Yeah with 20 euros I can get like 5 good beers 4 euros each in the same place so I won't try them until I go to the US again I guess
I like stouts and IPAs. Favorite breweries are Sierra Nevada, Stone, Harpoon, Ipswich, Berkshire, and Mayflower. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a Sam Adams Boston Lager, either--it's a modern classic.
>comparing a professional ad to a random photo of a pint of beer
And of course it looks like fucking coke, it's an amber lager. You don't think all German beers look like fresh piss do you?
>the brits drinking warm beer meme is real
But yeah, the better the beer the higher the temperature you can drink it at.
Stilll think for the british beer it makes no difference and you just save the cost for cooling any.
Belgium should stick to beer instead of immigration.
Innis & Gunn from Scotland. It's God tier Tbh
If piss is that tasty and useful for cooking, you can go fuck yourself. ;)
