Fark the Belgians and their fruity beer. I'll take a nice dry American lager, any day.

Agreed. It's corporate plastic-cup beer I won't drink. (Seriously. I have German ancestry, my parents unintentionally instilled a deep repulsion for light beer before I ever cared about drinking, and while I have settled for MGD when circumstances required it, I have never, ever drunk light beer and would rather settle for water than insult my taste buds with it.)

Well, that's where you are wrong. The Europeans have had CENTURIES of experience doing this, and anything American will, by definition, be a watered-down wannabe product. Just like your music and your "football".

Does anyone know a good beer that's not overly bitter? I don't like it to taste like crushed pills.

Rolling rock used to be my standard cheap beer. But they definitely changed something because it tastes a lot different now.

I took the kids to Busch Gardens a couple of times, and while they loved it and the park's very pretty, as a first-generation German-American I was just appalled at what they called "beer" there. Downright embarrassing!

But this "American beer is crap" thing stopped being true many years ago.

Antimatter

If you are looking to avoid "bitter" stay away from India Pale Ales and anything with "Hop" in the name (i.e. HopDevil). Belgian and Scottish style ales, White beers (like hefeweizen) and Stouts (other than Guiness) will give you more sweet than bitter.

There are lots of micro- and national American breweries which make good examples of each.

do you cold age your homebrewed ale (let them sit in the fridge) or leave them at room temp?

I have 5 gallon carboy of a Belhaven Scottish ale clone that's been sitting in my closet since April. Does that count?

Wooly Bully: as a first-generation German-American I was just appalled at what they called "beer" there. Downright embarrassing!

Oh please, take a look at the most popular beers by sales in any other country. They are the same variations on mass produced, pissy yellow lager all over the world. Stella, Bud, Carslberg, Oettinger...all have some sort of mass-produced, pissy yellow lagers that is their best seller.

If you think Germany's pissy yellow lager that dominates their market is substantially better than the pissy yellow lagers that dominate in the States, you're dreaming.

The key is, don't drink pissy yellow lager.

My Monthly AA Meeting (new window)

If you and your SO are into wine as well, come to Nova Scotia for some fantastic alcohol fueled vacations.

When I brew my own beer, I can choose the field that my wheat and barley come from and even drive the harvester myself. I have to drive 2 hours for hops... Eventually I'll grow them myself but I think I have to build a greenhouse. When I retire I'm going to convert my grandfathers old pasture into a vineyard.

We brought the recipes with us when we left Europe. We didn't start from scratch so all those centuries of experience came with us too.
