    To maintain Allbuff's reputation, it's worth recruiting Milwaukee, Reno and Burlington.

    Just read this review of King Cobra from Beer Advocate. Made me laugh:

    As I've noted before, the Belgians are a little strange about the glasses in which they serve their beer. The vessel must match the brand. No exceptions. And even if an exception were made, it wouldn't be for a Trappist like Chimay. Chimay is a brew so foul, I can hardly choke it down, and in the case of Chimay Blue, I just can't drink it at all. Everybody else seems to love it.

    So is Chimay the Budweiser of Belgium?

    i spent a week in Antwerp and all my Belgian buddies drank Kronenberg. their local beers were awesome, and they drank Kronenberg which is garbage. we used to think buying Duval was big time at LQ Mart in the 90's, but that was crap/Bud to them.

    Most Belgian beers are way to goofy for my taste. Chimay, in particular, is disgusting. And expensive to boot. While some trappist beers can be very good, most of them get too fluffy.

    Fargo, ND on that list as #2. I wholeheartedly agree with that assessment. I lived there for 6 months. Never in my life have I been around a collective group of people who drink so much, so often. I considered myself a pretty solid drinker before I went up there, but I was wrong. The problem is they drink swill. Lots of cheap beer. They think Heinecken is the classiest beer brewed.

    And Kronenburg isn't garbage. It's OK as French beers are concerned. Fischer is garbage.

    I went to college near Milwaukee and loved my time there in the neighborhood bars drinking their fresh beer, eating their wonderful fare, cheese and such. When I turned 21 my ambition was to go up to Milwaukee and have a beer in all the bars in the city. Man was I naive, crazy or whatever. I wouldn't be here if I had made just a small proportion of those places.....

    Beer is like bread, the fresher you get it the better it tastes. When I was at CU my friend took a beer making class from a guy named Charlie Papazoin ( something like that - I know I butchered it). I went to their tasting party at the end of the course and almost all the brews were delicious. None were more than 2 or 3 days old.

    I get what you're saying...lot's people like it but it's crap. But no. That's a poor analogy.

    The Trappiste beers have some sort of special monk/abbey designation that makes them different than all of the other abbey beers.

    I think there're only seven trappist beers and most of them are located in Belgium. Off the top of my head, Orval, Westmalle, Westvleteren, Chimay, Roche-somethingorother and I've gone blank on the others. Of the Trappists, I find Orval and Westvleteren the most tolerable. Westvleteren is a pain-in-the-ass to get, though. You have to schedule a drive-by with the Abbey (on their schedule) and it's an hour outside of Brussels.

    So in a sense, Chimay is a special beer brewed by monks. It just happens to taste like ****. Budweiser tastes like crap because it's basically watered down hops. Chimay tastes like **** for the exact opposite reason...they've done too much with it. Like most Belgian beers it tastes like rotted fruit.

    Among the roughly one-billion breweries in Belgium you'll find quite a lot of variety. But I taste at least a 10% common thread in all of them, and I don't like that flavor. I consider Duvel the prototypical example of Belgian beers. That "at least 10% common thread" is more like 100% in Duvel. All Belgian beers taste, in part, like Duvel to me.

    Palm Beer is the lone example. I like Palm (If I had a nickel for everytime I said that...) and it doesn't taste like the others.

    New Orleans is only drunk in the two block area around Bourbon St. And those are just the tourists. People in Fargo walk around with .005 BAC. It's insulation.

    I guess that's why no one can drive down here.

    After looking at the criteria they used to come up with the drunkest cities, I was a little surprised to see that DUI/DWI stats wern't included.

    That's unfair. In a cities like San Francisco, New York, and Chicago a significant portion of the population don't own cars, let alone drive them drunk.

    In a good way. Yes. Sometimes that means waking up to the sound of a brass band while lying in a dark alley at 3AM with no pants, no wallet, no shoes, and very little recollection about what happened after that a session of jagermeister and hurricane therapy.
