Canadian beer isn't much better (Labatts? Molson? ). The U.S. craft beer industry is cranking out some pretty damn good stuff these days.

Are you kidding? Canada has a very rich brewing history, and we're known for our beer around the world. I'm not sure if its different down there , but at least Molson and Labbatts puts alcohol in their beer (5-7%, instead of 3% or whatever is in bud). Even our Bud (brewed by Molson) has more alcohol than the bud you get down there.

The well known rice based American "beer" called Budweiser is available in Canada. However, because US megabrewers have a reputation for making weak 3.2 beer, nobody drinks it. For this reason the famed formula was reformulated to have a higher alcohol content, on par with regular Canadian brands. Some ads for Bud just have a huge "5%" and a smaller "Budweiser" to convince those suspicious Canadians that it's okay to drink.

Despite the 5%, its still sucks. But its better than the swill Bud down south.

Any homebrewers around here? Right now I've got the last 14 of Matt's Strawberry-Wheat in the fridge.

haven't decided what to make next, did a really good IPA before this strawberry wheat which turned out so good that I'm thinking about doing another wheat of sorts.

When i actually buy beer i'm a big fan of New Belgium beers, used to drink a lot of Linenkugel when i lived in ohio, and am pretty willing to try just about anything once.

BTW, if there are any homebrewers around and you happen to have any good recipes sitting around, i'm looking for something tasty to make next.

cheers

Since when does alcohol content determine how good a beer is? It's one of many components. America has a "rich brewing tradition" too. Granted that tradition is of brewing lighter, lager-style beers, but it's a long history nonetheless.

All that's changed now. Forget the macro brewers here, check the craft brewers, that's where it's at. There's tons of outstanding brews now in the U.S. covering all brewing styles. Something like 1400 breweries now, including the big 3.

The only time you'll catch me drinking Buttwiper is at an event that sells nothing else.

Well, my original post wasnt commenting on microbreweeries. I'm sure there is some great stuff on both sides of the border in that respect. I was speaking about the macro brewers. If you walk into any average bar here you will always find decent beer.

And I do realize that alcohol is only one component, but my point is that at 3% , american bud, and other american macro beers are basically piss water. The american product had to be improved in order to sell at all in Canada.


EDIT: Similarly I think the Canadian exports to the US (Molson , Labatts, etc) may be watered down version? I'm not really sure though.

Agreed about the piss water (one of my favorite terms, BTW), but I'm pretty sure US Bud if 5 ABV, this per the site I linked above. Either way there's not much to it taste wise.

Corona is looked upon as crap beer for peasants in its native Mexico. It's the bottom of the rung.

The only time I'll drink corona is at the beach or a pool. For some reason it tastes good then.

I'm a big fan of Fat Tire, Sam Adams light, Guinness, and just about any IPA. Bass and Newcastle are fantastic too.

i can't believe you're comparing the Molson's and Labbat's to the Bud's and Coor's. That's like comparing donkey piss to mule piss.

it's all the same crap. the alchohol content in the afformentioned canadian brews is a measly 0.5% higher than the american brews, and like someone else said... since when does alchohol content dictate quality?

you can get microbrews with alchohol content of 18% plus. shit, even Sam Adams makes a beer with greater than 15%.

stop with the alchohol content nonsense, it means nothing. its like comparing dick sizes at best.


there are innumerable quality brews produced in the U.S. even by the major manufacturers (like Sam Adams for instance). couple that with the fact that "microbrews" are more than widely available. i mentioned Magic Hat for instance... they're a micro-brewer whose beverage is available nationwide.

you're entire argument reeks of ignorance.

^^^Kinda brings up a good point

Do people drink beer to get drunk or for the taste?

Beer really doesn't taste great...At least in comparison to great tasting foods and drinks (coffee is the same). Im not saying that some people don't like the taste, Im sure they do (I do)....But Beer (and coffee) by design have somewhat of a bitter taste....

American bud, was at one time (not sure if it still is) 3.2%. 5% is the standard up here. My point about the alcohol content was just to demonstrate that Bud had to make their beer better, to sell it up here. I'm not saying alcohol content is everything. My comment about the triple X was just a joke - I hate that stuff.

And I'm not comparing microbrews. But US macrobrews, in general, suck. I've heard many american comment how "the beer is better up here"
