Beer....
« on: November 21, 2008, 09:14:35 PM »
....Fermgael and Laois lad have been arguing about the best kangaroo piss on the market on a different thread ....this got me thinking about my favourite subject....beer.

Right lads cards on the table....gimme your top three beverages. no Cabarnet Sauvignon...no Merlot....no Jack Daniels...no Grey Goose..it has to be beer...stout lager ale whatever....make the call.


I want the top three beers among the learned folk on the board...might put a poll up later if I see a pattern developing.

I'll kick off...

1. Pint of Guinness...from a reputable hostelry of course...nothing else compares
2. Cold bottle of Erdinger Weissbier crystal
3. Again another cold bottle of Ekstra Draught...god bless our foreign friends for bringing this nectar to Ireland.

You can't beat the Trappists for a good beer... they may not say a lot, but byjesus they can brew an ale!

And as impeccable timing would have it, as I dab on the keys, I'm sipping of a Westvleteren 12 -- reckoned to be the best beer in the world (www.ratebeer.com).  ;D

No 1 would always be a nice creamy pint of Guinness.

Loads of other great beer out there, at the moment I've taken a fancy for Clotworthy Dobbin, a nice ale from the Whitewater brewery up in Kilkeel.

Oh I remember falling into the trap of buying 4 Cafferys in a BOGOF promo in the old Fly of a Thursday night.  Didn't see much of Friday.   

Anyway guinness, carlsberg, harp & smithwicks all tastes great in the pubs that care about their clientele and clean the pipes daily.   

If you want to reach the next level tho try Pilsner Urquell or Staropramen in the Czech Republic.  Brewing purity at its absolute finest to the point that you can drink 12-15 pints and still have a clear head the next day!

You haven't lived, if you're quoting macro beers like that as the best. Honestly.
