Tradition is something Amerikans will never understand. And it's a normal thing since Amerika is a young country and it doesn't have any.

I'd say the annual mass genocide of turkeys qualifies as an American tradition.

As an American-British dual citizen I whole heartedly endorse everything in the last few pages.

What has miller light to do with an argument about beer? It is even worse that bud light is the best selling alcoholic drink in the U.S.A. At some point Americans forgot what beer really is.

They still mad cuz their tradition of lining up all their soldiers in a line out in the open made them lose a war that was logistically impossible to lose.

So 25,000 "marketing partners" get to drive in a special lane in special BMWs that automatically turn the lights green so they never have to stop?

Agreed. Although if you ever see anything from the Great Lakes Brewing company you should try it. That's pretty much the only American brewery that I consistently enjoy.

If you've never had a good American beer, you've never had beer from the northwest.

RIGHT! Like the awful awful awful Rogue Brewery? Every single beer I've ever had from them is mediocre at best and undrinkable at worst.

"What do you think, needs more hops?"

"You can still detect a subtle hint of malt character. So yes. More hops. Much more."

Sierra Nevada Stout and Porter are actually pretty good though.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

Dude, there are really good American beers everywhere.

It is true that every brewery seems to love making the highest ABV and IBU beer they can but as they proudly display this info on the bottle (and give them names like Hop Wallop) they're easy to avoid.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

I don't like Rogue much, either. Although it's strong enough that after the first two you don't taste it anyway. I'm a fan of Mirror Pond and Twilight Summer Ale from Bend, preferably in giant growler form directly from the brewery. Also Fat Tire and 1554 from Fort Collins. Also if you can find any, Doktor is great, although I haven't seen that outside the brewery.

Maybe there are. But you have to hunt for them. Whereas in England you can go into a pub and just pick a tap at random and it's going to be a good beer.

USA confirmed #1 in number of 11% stouts that taste like someone diluted one part vodka with two parts soda water, one part pine needle extract and just dyed that **** black.

If finding good beer was easy, Bud wouldn't be #1 in sales. Besides, half the fun is getting your lazy ass to the brewery to try them all!

Bud is better than most American craft beers. In much the same way "Dude, Where's My Car" is a better movie than "Black Swan".

I am proud that the discussion has moved to quality of beer production. No other metric is really that important in comparison
