People should be focusing on the real issues, and the real issue is with the slide of the dollar, Belgian beer is really expensive right now.

Depends on the beer, but to give one example a 12 oz. bottle of Gulden Draak or Piraat would be about $3.75 US.  So a four pack comes in around $14-15 US.  Pennsylvania taxes being part of that, which are really high for alcohol.  Things are a little better in New Jersey, I just hate driving over there.

No..no...no.... EVEN worse is the American Budweiser which has NOTHING to do with real Budweiser as brewed near Plsen in České Budějovice, Czech Republic! I know this to be true because my cousin, several times removed, said so and he is the Greek Catholic priest in Plsen for the Rusyn/Slovaks who live in that region.

I've had both, in the hometowns. They don't even share the same name.

Interesting about the Belgian beers.  I spent some time sampling around the country (Belgium that is) and was quite impressed.

I did that too, last year.

I especially miss the lambics! I've found that you can get most of the main Trappist ales in America (though at a premium). But the varieties of lambics are much less available. In most places all that is available is Lindeman's Framboise or some of its other varieties, which are not really proper lambics.

The one Trappist ale I am dying to try is from the famously uncommercial Westvleteren Brewery:

I shall have to make a religious/beer pilgrimage to the monastery next time I'm in Belgium.

LOL...beer's just something you drink when you want to take your time getting drunk. Any serious drinking requires something harder.

Old Style!  Though I'll enjoy a PBR if I can't get Old Style.  The two are better than the Buds, Busche's, Millers, and Coors.

Though I am partial to a good ale or stout when I can afford it.

Sheesh...what's wrong with a can of PBR?

 An Irishman was in New York on business.  During the lunch break, a few of his American colleagues invited him to a pub down the street.  One ordered a PBR, while another ordered a Coors, while yet another ordered Budweiser.  To the astonishment of his colleagues, the Irishman ordered a Coke.  "Sean," they said, "It's ok to have a beer if you'd like".  To this the Irishman replied, "Well, since you lads aren't drinking, then neither will I."   :D ;)

A few of my favorites (thus far):

Paulaner - Hefeweisen
Youngs - Oatmeal Stout and Double Chocolate Stout
Sam Adams - Cream Stout
Guinness Stout

My personal favorite is the Italian beer Peroni, which has gotten dang expensive too. App. $9.00 for a six pack (despite my age I am only in school right now)

Once a week some friends invite me to their house to watch the Falcons play (we live in Atlanta). I gorge myself on their chili and chips and salsa, and then proceed to show my thanks by giving them about 8 cans of that cheapstuff (app.$0.65/beer). But as the commercial used to say, it does go well with food.

I prefer Guinness, Killians, and Sam Adams as my beers, Yuenglings when I'm on a budget, and PBR if I can find it in can format (I have heard it is better in the can). Bud Light has kind of grown on me as I was in Georgia for about 5 weeks of military training and Bud Light seemed to be what everybody bought... But Guinness will always be my top choice for taste, texture and Irish Car Bombs (the drink, not the explosive).

Sam Adams Winter Lager ain't bad...+ u can catch a 12ver on sale for $10.99

Trader Joe's Abbey style brews are a good deal also...

$10.99!!! We think its great in New York when it hits $14.99 PLUS .60 bottle deposit and sales tax of 8%. Where are you located?

About 60 miles N/E of Los Angeles and 40 miles S/O Edwards Air Force Base...

Rite Aid, CVS and Safeway usually have the 11 buck specials...

Stay thirsty my friend...

Just be warned many of those trappist monasteries contain Catholics.

I've heard rumors of people becoming papist's after consuming real Trappist beer...

"Give beer to those who are perishing." (Proverbs 31:6) There's nothing in the Bible about Natural Light.

[6] Give strong drink to them that are sad: and wine to them that are grieved in mind

Mine says this. Natty light is neither of these. Obviously, the Jews were talking about a "Tactical Nuclear Penguin"...

Quote
15 times stronger than some domestic brews (we’re looking at you Bud Select 55), Tactical Nuclear Penguin and its brew-ther Sink the Bismark IPA* set the world records for the strongest beers on earth at a tolerance destroying 32% and 41% ABV, respectively. Martin and James, the lads at Scotland’s BrewDog Brewery, fed up with the watered-down beers, set about finding a proper alternative. BrewDog’s unique process that lends superlative alcohol content to their beers involves freezing their brew at a local ice cream factory in order to remove water and increase the ABV rating (alcohol by volume). Clearly, a beer of this stature isn’t appropriate for chugging, but in hopes of preventing foolishness, the bottle bears the warning below. We’ve also embedded a video about BrewDog after the jump.

In the circles I am apart of we refer to Natural Light as Natty (playing on the word nasty), because of the very low quality of "beer" that is produced. Honestly, could you even call that filth beer?

College-folk like Natty Light for 2 reasons...1) it's cheap...2) of the cheap beers, it has the highest alc. content by volume. Drink more for less and get drunk faster...collegiate know-how at it's best.

I have heard as much before, but of course I have no great love for our so called institutions of higher learning and this choice of alcoholic drink only fuels my distaste. If only I could afford to go to a university where they still wear academic robes and drink ANYTHING than Natty, but I am a traditionalist...

LOL. I didn't even read them myself. Just checked that the points were somewhat decent. Beer hipsterism has been gaining ground here during recent years despite the fact that or goverment is making it's best to keep people from actually enjoying their beer. Nice to see that grocery stores are going with the flow.

Ever tried to brew your own beer?  You could be extra hipsterish if you don suspenders while you do it.  Or even a canvas apron that has a turkey on it saying "Vote for Nixon."

Hmm, I'm pretty sure you don't need to pasteurize beer at all, provided you sanitize your equipment and bottles properly. I'm drinking beer I brewed months ago and it's still good. What does happen if you let beer sit around too long is it slowly oxidizes and turns into malt vinegar; then it's only good for sprinkling on fish and chips.

Right on.  I made a high gravity beer back in 2008 and I still have a few bottles.  Last one I cracked open, it still tasted great.
