What is the Best Beer on the Planet?

Postby dogonwheels on Fri Oct 08, 2004 9:25 pm

I'm particularly fond of a Belgian beer called Delirium Tremens. Absolutely delicious and like rocket fuel and it was officially voted "best beer in the world"

Any cold beer on a warm day at a baseball game. I'm drinking Amstel Light right now. Beer and just about anything.

Go Sox!

Selfridges and probably other department stores that have a decent selection of beers and wines definitely sell it. Shops like oddbins should sell it. I haven't seen it in a supermarket yet. The odd bar that has a good selection of foreign bottled beers usually sell it and it comes with its own glass usually and I've had it at beer festivals where they sell bottled beers. Its not that rare and is quite easy to get hold of. It is delicious but packs a mighty 9% wallop.

Any of these bars should have it if any are in your area. I particularly recommend Bar Fringe if anyone is ever in Manchester.

Peckham's the posh deli/offie is probably your best bet. I've bought it in there before. Try the 750ml bottle of Chimay Blue as well.

My fave at the moment is the Lowenbrau that they are selling at the Outhouse in Edinburgh.

I'm quite curious about the new beer with caffeine. It could be a winner! I've always thought it was odd - coffee is served at places where you sit and talk (coffee houses), beer at a place where you're supposed to be active and bouncing around (clubs). Maybe this will be the best of both worlds.

Anheuser-Busch announced that it has a new beer: B-to-the-E, or BE. It combines beer with caffeine, guarana, and ginseng, along with blackberry, cherry, and raspberry aromas for what the company calls "a lightly sweet and tart taste." The beer is in response to flavored liquor drinks, which have been seeing more market growth.

According to Bob Lachky, Anheuser-Busch's VP of brand management:

Distilled spirits are definitely in the background of this decision. Sweeter flavors have definitely made an impact on 21- to 35-year-olds. ... It's a bigger part of the alcohol-drinking spectrum.

The beer giant plans on rolling the beer out during the next year, pending formal government approval. Price has not been identified, but is expected to be more than the typical price of a beer. The drink will be packaged in smaller 10 oz. cans and will have 6.6% alcohol by volume.

My current favorite is the Belgian beer, Floris Appel Whitbier, it's the most incredible beer I have ever tasted, here's a description

Floris Appel Witbier is brewed from 60% barley, 38% unmalted wheat, and 2% oatmeal. Hops are gentle Brewer's Gold from Belgium, and crushed coriander seeds and Curacao orange peel are added during the brew for a complex spiciness. During maturation, the brewers add fresh apple juice and the result is a sensation: spice, fresh apple bouquet, a tart backbone, just enough hops for balance, and the smooth body of a wheat beer.

For people in Chicago, it's available at Hopleaf on Clark St. in Andersonville.
