My point being that not every "rule" is worth following. I like German beer. But I like Czech beer. Some beer from the Alsace region. Even Danish and Norwegian beer. No one has "the way". "Purity laws" aren't always a good thing.Yeah, yeah, I know, everytime Germany is mentioned somebody else did NAZI that coming German privilege, I guess
I know, B. Sorry if it came across that way.And I would hope by now that you know that I'd never play a national socialist card against you or yours...so please don't put words in my mouth, Roland.
I used to like Asahi and a few other Japanese beers but I seem to have lost my taste for them. I've also, to be honest, gotten burned out on IPAs and their ilk of late and have mostly been concentrating on lagers / Pilsners.
My local wine shop has some good German and Czech offerings...I don't see as many in the local supermarket but they have standard offerings like Pilsner Urquell and such.
I'm not a wheat beer devotee... but I will say that Allagash makes a fine one. I had bought it for my wife who enjoys wheat beer, and I was impressed with it,,,and surprised. (Not something I would keep on hand regularly, however.)Was at Costco the other day, and they had maybe a dozen specialty beers and all but two were IPAs, and the other two were flavored beers (a citrus flavored Belgian wheat beer, and some other fruity nonsence). Ridiculous.
