I was recently introduced to wheat beer called Hefe Weizen. The label is Pauliner. Lovely brew.

1. AASS (particularly Aass Bock, my favorite beer in the world, not imported to the US every year, it's been a while since i've been able to get it but other Aas beers are around, but the Bock- oh that Bock- i believe the logo on it says something like "the perfect beer for a spring morning"! tastes of Hallertau hops- incredible)

2. Wolavers- anything wolavers is gonna work great- the IPA, brown, pale ale all great great great! organic beer from Vermont- sublime.

3. Celis White- delish, so refreshing

4. homebrew- brew your own beer- always fresh, contains brewers yeast / sediment which replenishes your bodies lost vitamins etc..., very economical and a great way to learn about what it is you like precisely about particular beers (i've brewed about 25 batches of homebrew since college days and though it wasn't world class, it was delicious and so satisfying to drink your own creations- plus you can put whatever crazy ingredients you like in it- cardomom, maple syrup, blueberries, herbs, all of which i've tried, and really experience what different types of malt, barley, and hops mean to a beer).

I am enjoying one of these, for the first time ever, as I write this. Excellent. Best import from UK I've found so far.

I always preferred the cream ales.
Jet City (no longer made)
Genessee Cream Ale
Old Vienna Cream Ale
OKeefe Ale

I think 3 of the 4 are long-gone. I just read that Schlitz is back. Or, as I call it, Schitz.

I always buy the Mexican stuff because I hate overpriced pretentious sniff and swirl and spit "American" beers these days. Beer is supposed to be a no-BS blue collar beverage.

Beer drinkers or tasters seldom "spit"- that's pretty much strictly a "wine thing". Swilling/smelling one's beer IS important to some who are interested in enjoying a beer's flavor (rather just guzzling ice cold beer), OTOH, since taste and smell are so related.

As for "BS", for many beer drinkers, paying "craft beer prices" for adjunct laden beer in clear glass, brewed in a third world country and routinely served with a lime is pretty much the definitive example of "BS". (Not that I would have known without specifically looking today, but Corona costs as much as all-malt Samuel Adams- $15 a 12 pack, versus beers of the same style and quality from the US- Bud at $10/12 pk- and from Canada- Labatt- $12/12pk.)

I'd much rather drink the many traditional beer styles that have been revived by American craft beer brewers - most of which predate the adjunct "light lager" and the even lighter "light beer" styles that are the dominant style of beer from US and Mexican large breweries. I (blue collar and all) don't think "flavor = pretentiousness" and it's somewhat strange to find the theory on a website that promotes good, local food over the corporate stuff.

You'll find many strange tastes and beliefs on this "good,local food" web site...it takes all kinds of people to make the world go 'round...we just need to tolerate them....bad taste and all!!

When a wine store has a tasteing night, and they can open up 15-20 bottles and give you little 1 oz samples, you spit for several reasons. (I've been to tastings in Seattle that had 50 bottles open)

First, you're likely driving afterwards, and 20oz wine = 5 drinks. Assuming you're there just for the tasting, you're likely in and out under an hour. 5 drink in 1 hour for many people makes a good buzz. Not cool with driving.

Secondly, if you're there for the tasting, you want to actually still be able to taste by that 20th bottle. You swirl & smell to take in the full aroma. You sip and swirl it again within your mouth to hit all your tastebuds, let the aroma go back up your sinuses for more smell. And you spit, because alcohol deadens tastebuds eventually. With a good buzz going you won't be really tasting and evaluating that 20th bottle. You're just drinking at that point.

Beer tastings follow the same process, but with anywhere from 1/2 to 1/4 the alcohol of wine, a lot less spitting goes on due to a lot less overall alcohol in the sampling. In fact, I rarely see beer spit, and I go to 1-2 wine/beer/port tastings a month, every month.

As for "Beer is supposed to be a no-BS blue collar beverage." - that just makes me giggle. The only authentically 100% American created beer style is "American Light Lager." Diet beer. (Bud lite, Miller light, ect...) Everything else is a revival or variation off of classic European styles which has always fueled the average European worker.

So American no-BS blue collar beverage = Diet beer? Thank God for the craft brewing revival.

Is there anything worse than beer snobs? It isn't wine, people. I don't care if you drink something that looks and tastes like a liquified loaf of bread, why hassle me for drinking something ice-cold and delicious like Miller Lite, Coors Light, PBR, Golden Anniversary or "The Beast"?

Yes, the unadventurous.

As I've said before - BBQ snobs, Hot Dog snobs, Steak snobs, Beer snobs... once you realize how good something CAN be, it's difficult to go back to the mass market marginally well done norm.

Yes I can pick up a rack of ribs from the chain grocery store down the street. They're ribs. They're cheap. They have a sweet sauce on them. But they are a pale shadow of the ribs I'll be getting from the state BBQ fest next weekend, and paying more for.

Likewise I can pick up a 12 pack of 'Blitzed Lite' for the discount price of $6.99, but it's a pale shadow compaired to the flavor, aroma, mouth feel of a 6-pack craf brew for $7.99. Sometimes you actually get what you pay for. Good beer is not cheap to make. The raw ingredient cost is directly reflected in the price. If your 6 pack is $3, rest assured you're geting less malt and hops and more water. If your 6 pack is nearly $8, with that first bottle you will taste the malt hops difference. You cannot avoid not tasting the difference. You get what you pay for.

And having said all that, sometimes 'Blitzed light' is exactly what you want. You want something light, refreshing, mild, unobtrusive. That's fine. Its actually a great post-lawn mowing beer.

Zen,
The same can be said for those who disparage the opinions of others regarding almost anything man makes. The BMW owner who makes snide remarks about my Ford Truck. The DietCoke-Pepsi folks who look at generic colas as if they are Moonshine. It all comes down to personal tastes and a respect for the position of others regarding whatever products are being discussed.

I have a good friend here on Roadfood who is very knowledgable about Beers. We will make jokes about my stock of Bud Lite or Mic Ultra (whichever was cheaper), but he manages to choke it down when he visits. We usually go over to the Liquor Barn in Louisville to draw a Growler of some exotic brew (Arrogant Bastard Ale comes to mind-appropriately I think) so he can pontificate about the various contributing factors that make a good beer...and I counter by downing a Bud-lite or a Shiner's Boch in one flip of the bottle. I have found that trying to debate with a Food-BBQ-Beer-Wine-etc Snob is a waste of time. My best Advice is to Make a stupid remark and get on with life. You aren't going to change them, and sticking a pin in their inflated egos can be real fun !!

Liking quality products does not automatically make someone a "SNOB"...Putting down others because they don't share the same views Does !

Hey, I live in Maine. We've got more microbrews than anywhere else per capita. I've tried the majority of them and they aren't bad. But what irritates me is people who act like they are somehow a superior being because they enjoy one beer over another. "Taste" is a subjective thing. Some people would take a 5 dollar roadside cheeseburger over a lobster dinner every time.
