Hmmm, doesn't seem to be very Firefox friendly.

Nice site, but needs a few international beers...

Bollocks to international beers. Alright the yank micro-breweries are doing some stuff right, but ale is from here, and we still make the best; Why bother trying foreign beers? it's like setting yourself up for disappointment.

Yeah I don't have a problem with International Beers.

Ale is definately a British thing, and nobody does it better. But I'm a firm believer that any beer should always be drunk only in the country of its origin.

See, the problem with so-called International beers in this country is that half of the time they're not. They've been brewed "under license" somewhere in London or wherever, and they just don't taste the same.

You can't beat Belgian beers if you drink them *in Belgium*, just the same as you can't beat British Ales if you drink 'em here.

Stella over here tastes nothing like it does in Brussels. It's much much nicer there, and it's a long long way from being the nicest beer. You've got Maas, which is similar to Stella only way nicer, then you've got all the proper Belgian stuff like Leffe Blonde and my particular favourite, Grimbergen Tripel.

I think if you stick to the principle of only ever drinking "local" beers wherever you are in the world, you won't go far wrong.

I like girly drinks like Liefmanns Frambozenbier, Faro (can't export that I think - too explosive) and Lindemanns Cassis. Yum!

Pete says his faves are Grimbergen Ultimo Brune, Leffe Brune, Westmalle Dubbel, Tripel Karmeliet.



So many favourites! We are going back to Brussels on the 23rd! We can't stay away from the place!

If it's the same brand. Yes. Sunny D for example will taste foul pretty much anywhere.

I didn't know you had Sunny D over there, but I certainly don't think it counts as orange juice. I believe the labelling euphemism would be juice drink, or more specifically orange-flavoured juice drink.

Don't be disgusting. Orange juice (the porr squished stuff) just tastes of orange juice - non of this it tastes better in it's home country like beers.

Boo.
