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.

How much is expensive for you for one beer (also answer for what volume)?

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.

According to my calculator, 12 ounces is about 350 mL of beer.
Now try saying České Budějovice (Cheskey Budgeyovitse)!

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.

 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."   Cheesy Wink

The best Heineken I ever drank was in Amsterdam Schipol International Airport. I drank it running in between airport controls. It was shocking for me, because in Poland you can drink alcohol of any kind in any public place.
