Why this is just fascinating.

Bill D, it's a clear indication of your artistic personality that you have happened upon The Best Beer you can get in Ontario. Creemore it is!

But I'm kind of amazed that you have some--is it sold there? Or did someone bring it to you special? Cause there is one thing that separates Creemore from all the other fine micro-, mini- and designer-brewery products. (Designer beers are fancy-label, small quantity beers actually produced by major breweries--say no more). They make a fine lager, and INSIST ON IT BEING SOLD FRESH. They allegedly go to every retailer and pub that carries their product, once a week, remove any unsold stock, and replace it with fresh. That's why it sells for $2.65/500 ml bottle in the LCBO, and why it's worth it. Fresh beer is so much better!"

13 years ago! Such a thread! I have to say (for those who don't read all of old threads) that I STILL think Dogfish Head is one of the best breweries in the world. They try anything, and you would not like everything they make, but their 'standard' stuff is A+, and you would find something to suit you.

I suppose I have added 200-300 types of beer tasted since this thread started... and thanks to Edmund & Charmion in Canada, I finally tasted a lager that is actually GOOD! if you get a chance, try Creemore Springs lager!

If you're in South-Eastern New England, look out for Newport Storm. A fine hoppy brew with a nice bite. Much more so than Sam Adams.

So many good beers and ales are gone, the Dawson's Ale from New Bedford, the Black Horse from -- wherever it came from, New Jersey? -- the real Ballantine's Ale from New York or Cranston ... and though I haven't been to that part of the country in years, they tell me Ranier Ale is no more ... sigh ... But we have our new microbrews. And Schaeffer (!) is still made, though in Texas, not New York, and still excellent for quenching a simple thirst on a hot day.

My son used to run a pub in Buckingham and was the only licensee in the town to get a cask mark from CAMRA (The Campaign For Real Ale). Up to that time I had been a white wine drinker and then virtually teetotal for a few years.

A friend had told me about the merits of Spitfire beer and, when Andy had it in as a guest ale I tried it and was converted. It really is a wonderful beer. Since then I tend to try different beers at the pubs I go to for folk sessions and have found quite a few good beers. I have had Guiness, but, having tasted it in England and Ireland will only drink the Irish variation which is much creamier and has altogether a better taste than the English. I've found that draught beer definitely has the edge on bottled and you really need to find a landlord who looks after his beers properly - it does make a difference!

Addendum to my post above:

Though I don't drink the real stuff anymore, I do occasionally drink a non-alcoholic brew. I actually have more of a sense of preference when it comes to NA's than I did with regular beer. Hell, I didn't care what regular beer tasted like as long as it worked. Since NA's don't work there's no reason to drink them if they don't taste good.

Of those that I've tried, Buckler from the Heineken folks is my favorite with St. Pauli Girl NA running a close second. Guinness's Kaliber is overpriced swill. O'Doul's from Anheuser-Busch is surprisingly good with a slightly Beck's-like flavor that none of A-B's regular beers have. For those who prefer the flavor of a typical American beer, Coors NA is almost indistinguishable from their regular swill except that it won't get a fly high.

As always, YMMV.

Most people have better taste than I do. I'm happy lately drinking a basic, cheap lager. Here in Wisconsin, Point Special or Leinenkugel Original fall into this category. On tap or in a bottle works for me.

It's been over thirteen years since I've had a beer or anything else alcoholic. I can tell you that when I did drink my favorite was whatever came in a can, bottle or on tap - domestic or imported - light, dark or in between - expensive gourmet brew or mass-produced cheap swill. I never met a beer I didn't like.   

The only times that I cared what kind of beer I drank was when eating ethnic food. I always ordered Dos Equis with Mexican food, Kirin with Japanese food, Singha with Thai food etc. They seemed to compliment the flavors of the food. One thing I could never find, though, was a beer that tasted good with pizza. I know beer and pizza is supposed to be some king of a tradition, but I never liked it. The flavor of pizza is so overpowering that it made the beer taste funny. So, I just drank the beer and didn't eat the pizza.

Micca--- I live about 12 miles from the Glenmorangie distillery, but can't develop a taste for it at all. About 15 miles in the other direction [Brora] is the home of my favourite Clynelish, pronounced kline-leesh, I'll bring you some when next we have a Mudcat meet. Winter Warmer however is totally different, recipe as follows.
4 parts strong dark rum [Woods}
2 parts Crabbies ginger wine
1 part Roses lime juice
Now that's a winter warmer.

Cletus--- Surely Absinthe makes the fart grow Honda in Paw's case, as it is said to sound like a large motor cycle from a distance, which is the best place to be, I hear!!

Couldn't find any reference to New Zealand beers, so thought I'd better contribute. Current favourite is 'Speights Old Dark'. It's the only dark ale we have on tap. The only problem is they keep it chilled to the same temperature as the lagers. Aaarghhh.. I have to train new bar staff to give my pint a quick 'nuke' in the microwave to make it drinkable. It's brewed by Speights Brewery in Dunedin NZ.

Like the rest of the world, NZ went from one or more breweries in each town, in the 50's down to about six for the whole country in the 80's. Fortunately things have improved. Here's a current NZ brewery list

Mumble, mumble, this thread has got me thinking about brews, and pubs I have known. Must start a new thread!

Dunno if this one has been mentioned yet, but...

Traquier Ale. But good luck finding the stuff. I paid $20.00 for a bottle 20 years ago, and the thing was numbered.

However...for accesible beers, Mackesons triple stout. I am still a devotee of Guinness, but there is something about a stout that does not allow light to pass through it that enchants me.

I hold a Petes Wicked Stout up to a pub light, and I see the light, it's fixture, and likely the picture on the wall next to it.

I hold up a Guinness, and I see a warm red dot of light.

I hold up a Mackesons, and there's nothing. Pitch black, and nothing esle...and I am talking about Mackesons in a clear pint glass here. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

And for anyone traveling to the Washington DC area, there is a *very* good spot to try the worlds ales, beers, lagers and stouts. The Brickskellar. It's on P street very near the Rock Creek Parkway.

But if you want good music too, there's the Royal Mile Pub in Wheaton. The pub fare is great, the beers more unusual than most places, and there's much in live performance as well as some sessions and of course, the infamous Shanty Sings where anyone can stand and offer a song.

Patrish: It was one written by the late Keith Marsden and sung by Cockersdale. There is a wonderful book of all Keith's songs called "Picking Sooty Blackberries". I bet the Music Room at Cleckheaton will have it. Another of Keith's songs,"Doing the Manch" also mentions a few now defunct Yorkshire breweries. By the way, Simpson and Simpson (Brown Cow Brewery)have now brewed a beer to the Jug landlord's own recipe. If the name my husband gave it has stuck, it is called "That" as in "I'll have a pint of..." It's very nice and I think Syd said it has chocolate malt in it.

Yes, water does indeed make a difference, hence my first posting to this tangled thread. When Devenish Brewery moved their brewing from Weymouth to some where in Devon, the difference was noticeable immediately. Most of Dorset is chalk, which acts as one of the best natural filters in the world. Devon is getting towards sandstone, which filters about as well as a pound of sugar. In the drought in 1976, Dorset was one of the few counties that didn't actually run out of water, due to the subterranean stores of water under the chalk. Devon was reduced to standpipes and rationing long before much of the rest of the county. Guiness brewed using water from the Liffey really does taste different than that brewed elsewhere(or so the SO tells me, I can't stomach the stuff...).

There are so many buyouts going on in the British brewing industry these days, and production of so many of the "big" names is being shifted around the country that I tend to avoid them. The character of ale is often determined by the type of water used. If they only shift production from hard to soft water areas, they then have to start adding salts and such to change things. One case in point was Shipstones, which as you can imagine went also under another name. It was brewed in Nottingham and was one of those beers that you thought either poison or nectar. When it was right it was lovely. The brewery got bought out by Greenalls, I think, who moved production to the North West of the country. It then merged or got bought out again and I think it may be brewed somewhere near Burton now.(You Notts people, put me right. I haven't checked the Good Beer Guide). Anyway, there is some amber coloured liquid now masquerading as Shippo's and it's not the only one. Theakston's now only brew Old Peculier in Masham. The rest is brewed elsewhere but thankfully still tastes good. Stick to the small local breweries: they don't pretend to be anything other than what they are. (Got the barrel of Maiden's Century on order for Christmas).

Although German beers are generally my favorites (St Pauli,Beck's,Hofbrau,Warsteiner), English Bitter ale is probably next in the running. When in Britain I usually order "Best" bitters in most pubs, but of those, Flowers and Ringwood ranked high. Of the choices of British beer available in America, I usually choose Newcastle Brown above Bass Ale and Watney's, although Old Peculiar looks intriguing.At $8.00 a 4 pack I have yet to partake. Guinness is delicious, but I find it a bit heavy and filling.

British beef is perfectly OK, even Brussels' says so, it is only the French (who feed their cattle human waste, and have had over 60 cases of BSE in NORMANDY ALONE in the last few years) who are refusing to see sense.

On the subject of beer again, Shepherd Neame do a brew called 'Spitfire', originally brewed to celebrate the a 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. If you drink more than 3 pints, you find out the next day just why it is called 'spitfire', and why there is a jolly red target on the label.......

I was fascinated by the device they had for dispensing it- like an elaborate brass and marble spigot with a basket under it for the wormwood, and below that a marble catch-basin, with a hole eroded in the center from the hundreds of years of drip-drip-drip.

Mick L. you'll be interested to know that I see Newcastle Brown all over the place...in Woodland Hills as well as back East in Syracuse. And I am keeping my vow not to try any until YOU are there to share in my enjoyment of the experience. I will get to England someday!

Monty Python took the piss out of "Watneys Red Barrel".

Tell me, anyone from the Wash area of England, can you still get Ansells King Pin Mild. That was my favourite beef of all time when I was in the RAF.

Having "sped read this thread".. i.e fast forwarding over large parts.. so excuse me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone has mention Newcastle Brown.. which if you can drink six bottles and still stand up, you're a better man than me Gunga Din.. and for anyone who has been, or even lives in Nigeria.. you will have come across "Star" and I won't need to tell you about that potent brew..
And Jon I'm not too up on Teeltey's apart from knowing the awful nature of it in Derby and the piss taken out of it in the Monty Python sketch...re drinking Teetley's Red Barrel..
