hubiestubert: Because a lot of people are stupid.Not ALL Americans drink bad beer, and there are some great breweries out there, but let's face it: folks love easy crap...
BillCo: Woot! Beer snob thread. Someone pass me a Schlitz.
nekom: BillCo: Woot! Beer snob thread. Someone pass me a Schlitz.I'm sorry, sir. We're out of Schlitz.
busy chillin': Just stop putting hops in everything. Hops sucks and you suck if you like hoppy beer. You are faking it anyway. You don't really like it. You are just trying to be cool. Hops sucks. Every brewery now just makes hop bombs and there are no other types of beer even being produced. Can't even find a decent flavorless beer anymore. F*cking hopheads.
Blues_X: [legalbeer.com image 807x605]Ahem.
Zel: Blues_X: [legalbeer.com image 807x605]Ahem.Yes. Old Rasputin is a tasty heavy black beer. Wouldn't really want more than two in a night through. It's too heavy. I'll have the Schlitz/PBR to wash it down please.
Aar1012: I've had some good New England beer while here. I do miss Great Lakes Brewery, however, since I moved from Ohio. I have found some good German beers that are sold here.When is the first IPA snob going to post?

F*cking hopheads.That's what I don't get. Everyone is trying to out-hop one another in their IPAs. There are other things that add to the flavor profile of a beer.I'd like to see a brewery make a real IPA though. Would be quite the experiment.
tlchwi02: call me unsophisticated, but on a hot day, a light, cold american/canadian lager really hits the spot for me. i do enjoy sophisticated beers (especially stouts and porters in the depths of winter) but sometimes its hot, and i just want to grill on my porch and get a light buzz on. a molson golden or an MGD just does it for me in that situation.
doublesecretprobation: not weak, just "un-challenging". that's just the macros though. the US pretty much dominates the micro industry now. europe seems to not even care about beer any more (belgium not-withstanding).

gilgigamesh: Apparently, this "investigative journalist" was recently unfrozen from a block of ice he fell into in 1993.He should report about that.
skremnjava: That being said, to make it a Real IPA I guess a brewer would have to load their beer barrels onto a ship and sail (no motors) halfway around the world in unrefrigerated temperatures. Or I could just drink some Foothills Hoppyum that was bottled a week ago...
cefm: I'm going with - in order:1) Stupid state/local liquor laws - many put outright bans or variable taxes on beer by alcohol %, so national distributors try to sneak in at the lowest tax rate.2)Prohibition3) Corporate sprawl pushing out smaller producers4) 50's-60's era quasi-fascism in U.S. Nobody wanted to stand out, look different, not drink Bud/Miller5) The dead-ification of U.S. taste buds accross all gastronomic spheres (see above)6) Cost, and the desperate attempt by the U.S. to hide the fact that the middle class income has been tanking steadily. A 30-pack of Stroh's cost the same as a 6-pack of good beer.
starsrift: That's like saying "China owns the market on small penises; go to China if you want a fantastic fark".
