Yeah - I think the Stella we get here is brewed in Newcastle - as the real stuff is actually pretty good. Budweiser and Coors are just diluted agar and Tennents, well it's utter pish - although it's highly sought after in Canada, New York and Japan!

:shock:

There isn't just one best beer in the world. (Not for me, anyway.)

Best in south London - Youngs Bitter. The perfect session drink.

Best in north London - Fullers London Pride. A more-ish meal in a glass.

Best in the Thames Valley - Brakspears Bitter (was - jury is out on new version on new premises).

Best in Yorkshire - Timothy Taylor's Landlord. Pretty close to perfect, despite the fact Madonna says she likes it.

Best in The Fatherland - Lowenbrau Weissbier. Better than Hoegaarden.

Best in Bruges (draught) - Straffe Hendricke. It's amber, it's tasty, it's gone.

Best in rest of Belgium (draught) - Ciney Blond. Nice edge of bitter-sweetness - shame the glasses are too small.

Best in Belgium (blonde bottled) - Duvel. It doesn't mean devil for nothing, you know.

Best in Belgium (brown bottled) - Ciney Bleu. Oh yes. THE beer for missions.

Best stout - Guinness. As good as its repercussions.

Has anyone on here ever tried one of Manchester's finest ales called Joseph Holt's? The bitter is a bit of an acquired taste but once you have acquired it its magic. Only £1.35 a pint too. The pubs are renowned in Manchester for being scruffy old man's boozers but they are trying to change their image.

Tried Holt's and it is okay. Has anyone tried Phoenix beers - they are nice.
My favourite beers are real ale (too many to list), Erdinger, Guinness, Paulaner and Chimay. The only lagers I thoroughly enjoy are Czech or Heineken in a bottle.

I was disappointed to discover, from the back of the label, that the bottle of Leffe I bought to drink on Sunday evening was actually brewed for the Abbey by Interbrew S.A. I liked the idea of a cowled process of fermentation, maybe with a bit of Gregorian chanting in the recipe. Centuries and flagstones. It was a "guid yin", but probably a bit potent for me. Maybe Leffe tops would be nice.

UK versions of Stella, Rolling Rock, Leffe and a whole load of other sophisticated foreign import brands owned by Interbrew are actually brewed by Tennents (also owned by Interbrew) at the Wellpark Brewery in Duke Street, Glesga.
