Why are you drinking that shiznit when you live in the beer capitol of the world??????
I live in Brussels, and the folks here would certainly disagree with your assessment of the World's beer capital. I'm a big fan of Fat Tire (New Belgium brewery, not by coincidence), and when I live in the states, I keep a keg on tap at all times (or Red Hook last year, because I couldn't get Fat Tire in Newport, RI) BUT there's some pretty serious beer in these parts. A lot of it is made my monks.
How's this Spring Game going to work?
White Shirts have 1st team offense and 2nd team defense while Black Shirts have the opposite?
Will Cody/Black QB the White Shirts and Ballenger/Nelson QB the other side?
With TE, DE, LB a little thin, the 1st/2nd team structure could create some mismatches.
Or will Ballenger/Nelson get a rotation in with the 1st string o-line?
To each his own, but I most certainly would not be drinking st. pauli girl when a myriad of lambics were just outside my door.
You and I are in complete agreement on that.
Some of the Belgian beer variations are a little erm ... unusual
Don't like Pilsner. It's lager & stout for me.
Umm... Pilsner is a lager.
Cause their logo is hot.
:lol: :lol: :lol:
it only took three posts for this thread to be jacked in the name of beer...
i love this board...
Belgian beer is disgusting. Sorry. But they mess around with it too much. German and English beer are far, far better.
St. Pauli Girl is German, whats all the fuss??
And the most popular beers in the UK are either originally (don´t ask me who owns what brewery right now) Irish (Guinness), American (Bud), Australian (Foster´s) or Belgian (Stella) ... go figure.
The foreign beers are brewed under a licence in the UK tho, but English beer is crap and they don´t even drink it themselves. Carling and Strongbow (Cider) are the only British beers who I think are readily available on tap in most UK pubs.
Tennent´s is fine, but it´s Scottish and usually only available North of the border.
Who is "St. Pauli Girl"?

I enjoy Newcastle, Watneys and Bass. Aussies won't drink Fosters, so I guess that tells you something. I have to be in the right mood to drink Guinness. It's not a warm-weather beer.
I can't remember which beers were on tap when I was in England. I know I was shocked to see Budweiser in most pubs.
Don't be hating on English beer. It's usually pretty good, IMO. Beer snob.
My dad told me Budweiser is surprisingly very well liked in Europe.
The "fuss" was simply to point out that most beer drinkers in the world wouldn't target Colorado as the "Beer Capital of the World". The majority would point to Brussels or maybe somewhere in Germany. But then again, most of the world's population watches soccer, so you kinda have to take their opinions with a grain of salt.
For me, I like most ales of varying color from anywhere west of Sterling and am especially partial to the beers of the Pacific Northwest. BUT, there's been some really pleasant surprises here in Brussels. Brugge Tripel? Ef yeah! Those monks got it going on! In fact, one local monestary brews what has been awarded--more than once--as the best beer in the entire freakin' world. Distribution is limited; you must actually drive to the monestary and the monks load the beer for you, but I'm making the trip soon. I'll let you know how it goes.
Finally, one of the finer afternoons of my life involved a tour of the just recently renamed "Rockies Brewery" (formerly Boulder Brewery, of course) with a few other guys (I was waiting tables at Red Robin and the folks at Rockies designed a beer for the restaurant). After the tour, the owners opened up the patio...FREE BEER on a perfect Spring afternoon, just sitting, sipping and looking at the Flatirons...
