    I'll give you guys and gals a hint - look where people like to eat rye bread or rye-wheat mixed bread there you should look for some beer-brewing tradition.

    I rate my post 10/10. Hah!

    That Twilight Pale Ale is pretty good, though not the best I've tried from the places here. Sam Adams and Leinenkugels are probably my favourite microbreweries.

    Belguim for me, whoever it was that told me to get some Bruges Zot when I was there last deserves a kiss.

    A brewery just down the road from me called surrey hills, best beer in the world called Shere Drop ommnomnom. So I'm saying the UK. But I am partial to a baveria

    Definitely Belgium, Duvel might just be my favourite, along with Barbar. I do love a good German weissbier too though, Franziskaner is pretty widely available in the UK now - even found some at home bargains, winner!

    Italian beer is flavourless piss, much like American export beer. Germany is where it's at. Weissbier is fucking ace. The single best pint I ever had came from a pub in Greenwich that I can't remember the name of (it's the one where Nelson went, or something like that), and it was a weissbier I also can't remember the name of. But I'd actually murder someone to get hold of it again.
    The Trafalgar?

    Edit: Fuck it, a bit late there.

    The beer was probably Erdinger and the pub was probably The Gipsy Moth. Used to drink there when I was at uni.

    Oh or the Trafalgar Tavern. That seems more likely.

    Yeah, was the Trafalgar. Spent an entire day there with an ex-girlfriend who was shooting some sort of documentary, interviewing this thoroughly boring man in one of the side rooms. I spent the day sat at the bar getting thoroughly drunk, talking about guff with the barman.

    Already confirmed as the Trafalgar. Quite like The Gypsy Moth though, especially in the summer. The Cutty Sark along the river is good too.

    Which is the one in Greenwich that proclaims itself to be on the 0 degree meridian or something? I had the quickest drink ever in there on the way home that day, literally just bought a whiskey, downed it, left.

    The Plume of Feathers?

    ed: Google says yes.

    Never been in there, any cop? I assume not.

    Belgium for me, without a doubt. Tripel Karmeliet and Maredsous are my current favourites, but there's too many great ones to name.

    In fact I was never particularly interested in or keen on beer until I first started trying Belgian abbey beers a couple of years ago. Obessed with the bloody stuff now.

    Gave this a try just the other day actually, wasn't blown away but it was very nice.

    Sounds vaguely familiar. But I honestly couldn't tell you. This was for about twenty seconds some eight years ago when I was thoroughly hammered.

    I had a few glasses of it in from the place that brews that stuff and it was spiffing. Ah well!

    I also vote for Belgium, I know that they are mass produced but I enjoy a Hoegaarden and a Leffe Brune. Although there are some nice local ales and ciders round my way.

    I imagine that made all the difference, I had it from a bottle.

    This thread made me thirsty and I remembered I have some Affligem in the fridge which I haven't even tried yet. Verdict: should've bought more.

    Erdinger's not even that great as far as Weissbier goes. Can't you get anything Weissbierlike where you are now?
  • Deleted user 28 February 2013 22:46:07
    There's fuckloads of weissbiers here. Those and IPAs are the most made beers. Most of them are superb, but I still long for that mystery one I tried all those years hence. Wasn't Erdinger, though.

    Dark Erdinger is good, you heathen.

    Thinking about it more, it was definitely a wheat beer, and it was definitely foreign, but it was specifically labeled as "white" as in the English word "white" rather than weiss. Probably won't help locate it out of the thousands of varieties of the stuff, though.

    I do love weissbier, drink Franziskaner or occasionally Schneiderweisse most often these days...

    Ohh yeah, a Dunkel. I do like a dunkel, Erdinger or otherwise.

    meme - Was it a Samuel Smith pub? They do their own wheat beer and call it wheat beer.

    We certainly are! And a platter of fine cuts.
