Top Ten Beers of the World Wed, 08/21/13 1:13 PM (permalink)

    I always scratch my head in disbelief at the number of  people on Roadfood who don't enjoy either a quality cup of coffee or a  solid microbrew...
     
    I continue to be perplexed that pure unadultarated garbage like Michelob actually made this list

      Michelob Ultra?
      Can and have drank Ballantine, but wouldn't rate it that highly

          I totally agree with you.  I like GOOD coffee and my beers of choice are Belgian.  Living in the north of France got me addicted to Chimay, Rochefort, Gueze  and a lot of others.  I wouldn't drink a Michelob or Bud or even worse.....Iron City lite if you paid me!

            I didn't see IC Light on the list.
             
            "Back in the day" I always preferred Duquesne, "The Prince of Pilsners".
             
            In any case, a list that includes a beer with added lime flavoring cannot be taken seriously.

              I'm really surprised Pearl didn't make it.

                During our recent visit to Pennsylvania, I did have the opportunity enjoy a Penn Pilsener at Tessaro's and Yuengling (twice) at Primanti's in Cranberry and once again at an Irish Pub across the street from our hotel in Scranton.
                 
                Sandra wanted to know why they named the beer after a Panda as she thought she heard me say I wanted a "Ling-Ling"

                  discussion over.  Brewery was open 26 years when the Magna Carta was written. This is where German brewers send people to get trained  And it tastes great too!

                    Michelob ULTRA Cactus Lime? WTF....I'd rather have a Mexican Coke any day. I do kind of like Negra Modelo, but don't think it's world class. Also, Pacifico is what most native Mexicans drink rather than that $#%&poor Corona. I remember "Tingling Yuengling" as a kid back in VA. I think that's the oldest brewery in the US.

                        Really surprised that Fat Tire, Sam Adams, etc...  didn't make the top 10 in the U.S.

                          Smithwick's has been my choice for a couple of years now -- preferably the draught, but bottled will do. I've not had a Ballantine in more than 50 years, back when I was working part time delivering it. We'd always take along an extra case to swap out a warm bottle for a cold one at a store or bar here and there along the route, and there were cold kegs of ale and beer in the drivers room back at the plant for after work.

                            I don't drink enough to have a qualified opinion, besides, I like Miller Lite, and Crabby's ginger flavored beer, diluted with lime and water, over ice. Family members who ARE qualified, laugh at my picks. 
                             
                            And why surveys?????? People read them........

                              I will drink a Penn Pilsner or Yuengling.  Sandra needs to spend more time in PA!

                                Make that Western Pennsylvania and I'll say everyone needs to spend more time there. The people are fantastic, and there's some pretty good food, too.

                                  My former boss who is now deceased flew a P 51 during WW2.  He was stationed in Guam.  They had no refrigeration.  They flew PBR in and they drunk it hot and swore it was outstanding.

                                    I suspect a lot of really good beers didn't make this list because they're not widely available.

                                        This list reminds me of those "lists" of, say, "The Top 10 Steakhouses in America" produced by some ad agency. 
                                         
                                        For "credibility", they'll put in names everyone knows (Peter Luger's, Bern's, et al.) in eight of the slots and sell the remaining two to local pretenders.  I noticed this first in Orlando where "Charley's" and "Vito's" always seem to "make" those "lists".  Here in Dallas, III Forks and Silver Fox pull the same scam.
                                         
                                        So, I wonder how much Anheuser-Busch (InBev) paid to get various iterations of Michelob featured so prominently!  In fact, it would not surprise me to find that InBev is also the owner of some of the others listed.

                                          There was definitely big money behind planning and getting that puff piece publicized. Not worth discussing the merits.

                                                I didn't see IC Light on the list.
                                                "Back in the day" I always preferred Duquesne, "The Prince of Pilsners".
                                                In any case, a list that includes a beer with added lime flavoring cannot be taken seriously.

                                                What??? No Ft. Pitt????
                                                And Where's Cordic & Company's Olde Frothingslosh
                                                One of Cordic's most memorable running gags at both WWSW and KDKA were fake advertisements for "Olde Frothingslosh", "the pale stale ale with the foam on the bottom." The beer was supposedly brewed by Sir Reginald Frothingslosh at Upper Crudney-on-the-Thames. In 1955, Pittsburgh Brewing Company began issuing special Christmas-season cans and bottles of Olde Frothingslosh filled with real beer. Since the Cordic ad read "The foam is on the bottom", the bottles & cans were packed upside down in the cases. The humorous labels changed every year and became favorites of collectors. The brewery (as well as a few other small local Pittsburgh breweries such as Tech Beer) released new editions of Olde Frothingslosh even after Cordic left Pittsburgh, continuing until 1982 and then reviving the brand in 1998, and more recently in 2007 (currently available)

                                                    Ft. Pitt:  "That's IT !!!" 
                                                    And don't forget Silver Top Lager along with my personal fave, Duquesne, The Prince of Pilsners.
                                                     
                                                    (It was a sad, dark day indeed for all of us Yinzers when Regis J. Cordic left the 'Burgh for L.A.  Stern, Imus, Dees, and all the other morning show 'Zoo-keeper types' should send the Cordic estate a royalty check.  For those of you who never heard of him, Cordic had an audience share of 85; i.e., 85% of all Pittsburgh radios were tuned to him!  as a result, he earned more as a local "DJ" than many national television stars of his day.  (Howard Stern rarely, if ever, topped 10% in any market).  Cordic, with a 'face made for radio', left for L.A. and failed both in radio and motion pictures.  The only role I can recall from the movies was a minor one in Woody Allen's "Sleeper").

                                                      I always thought it amazing the way Bob Crane translated from Bridgeport, Connecticut to Los Angeles but Cordic didn't. Crane was a star (before Hogan's Heroes) but Cordic bombed.

                                                            <"Back in the day" I always preferred Duquesne, "The Prince of Pilsners".

                                                            You might be pleased to know (or maybe not) that Duquesne is being brewed again, in Latrobe. I picked up a case a few months ago in Easton PA. The price was right, I think it was $12.99 for the case. It's not one of the Top 10 beers in the world, or even Pennsylvania for that matter, but it certainly didn't suck.
                                                             
                                                            I'd buy it again as my "Cheap summer beer", usually some long-lost brand that I always make a point to buy at the beginning of summer. Duquesne fills that niche very nicely.
