    The PBR looks like the most promising. German Hefeweizen ruined my taste buds for any other beverage called beer.

  2. donnie says:

    Agreed. Looks like Kroger fuel center.

    No Yeungling. That sucks.

    I have lived in Germany non-stop since 1977, and can’t believe how expensive that piss water you call beer is. I buy a case of 24 1/2 liter bottles of fairly good Öttinger pils for EU 6.50 ($8.00) and when i often visit the US, I think you are getting ripped off paying what you do for that piss-water as shown in the photograph. For what that shit is, you pay WAY TOO MUCH.

    • Wirecutter says:

      I don’t remember what we paid for a case of Stuttgarter Hofbrau, but it was about the same price as a case of American beer. It goes without saying American beer wasn’t a big seller.

      Blame the US government regulations. Returning from a trip to Ireland I thought I would have a Guinness. It was nothing like that fine elixir in Eire, I spat it out. Then I did some research of why the difference. That is when I found out. Yes, stupid ass government meddling.

      • Bacon says:

        In the case of Guiness, it’s not only the pasteurization, the export recipe is also slightly different.

  5. RocketmanKarl says:

    As Monty Python said: “Drinking American beer is like making love in a canoe, it’s f**king close to water”

  6. hybo says:

    Well, I happen to live in America and buy American beer. “I don’t drink beer often, but when I do, I drink Coors regular.” Go ahead, say what you want, cleanest Brewery I have ever been to and I enjoy the taste of Coors. Everyone has different taste which is why there are different beers. My dad drank Coors, I drink Coors and my grown children drink Coors. So what, deal with it.

    • Wirecutter says:

      I understand. I think.
      I drank Busch for years – it was a good utility beer.

      • NewVegasBadger says:

        WC, get your ass to Minneapolis. we have plenty of micro brew places here. You’ve never drink that dog piss called Busch. Life is too short to drink cheap beer

    • Grandpa says:

      I will drink Coors, on tap or however; it’s my “go to” inexpensive beer – from a very clean brewery. (40 beers for $26, here in the desert) Otherwise, for American beer? Shiner Bock. Nothing made by AnB ever, and I like the fucking Clydesdales… you youngsters can argue all you want, age will “teach” you.
      Given my choice? Bourbon, please.

  7. Sanders says:

    I used to like Coors and Miller High Life. Then I went to Germany…..

    • NewVegasBadger says:

      Miller is the swill you give to collage kids who don’t know any better. And Dear Sam Adams you virtue signally assholes; FOAD, just FOAD. I fucking hate you all; I’ll drink the cheapest swill of a beer than your stuff (even if your worst beer is superior to best of other major brews) traitorous assholes. FOAD

  8. bogsidebunny says:

    It’s just a sign that announces this section is reserved for Hispanic Kosher beer.

    • Bacon says:

      Amusingly enough, most regular, non-flavored beer is automatically kosher. One of the exceptions is Mexican beer — stuff out of Hispanic breweries and bottling plants always requires certification. So yeah, there is such a thing as Hispanic Kosher beer, but it’s hard to find outside of Jewish neighborhoods.

    Stocking up for March madness?????????

    Our house; we call that stuff Daddy Juice.

  11. I would grab the rolling rock!

    • Heathen says:

      That’s about the only thing I saw there that I would drink.

    • bogsidebunny says:

      RR piss? Nope

      Iron City by the neck of the quart bottle, CNW!

      • Heathen says:

        Iron City……remember this product from them ?

        “Old Frothingslosh”,featuring Fatima Yechburgh on the can.
        “the Pale, Stale Ale with the foam on the bottom.”

    • Gator says:

      Ya I’m a Rolling Rock fan too. Trying really hard to avoid anything owned by AnB at the moment, fuck those virtue signalling progs

    • Nemo says:

      I am also an RR fan, but only when I can’t get my hands on Shipyard’s Export. Smooth, Hoppy and packs a punch. Pricey, but worth the extra $ IMHO. I get as buzzed on two Exports as on 4-5 RR’s or Mudwaters. Then again, I’m a pretty cheap drunk these days as I don’t indulge often any more. Maybe I should ;^).

  12. John h. says:

    Is german heiniken different from American heiniken, or however u spell it? Ive heard its a diff beer for export?
    John h.

    • Wirecutter says:

      It’s different. It’s Americanized – in other words, pasteurized.

      • John h. says:

        So its a diff taste completely? Like fresh milk from a cow versus milk from kroger? I dont think ive ever had real german beer but if i drink beer i prefer heineken.
        John h

        • Wirecutter says:

          Correct. It’s the same with any imported beer.

          • John h. says:

            Ive tried Dos Eqis? Dark and lite and theyre defin stronger. Any other imports u recommend along the heineken taste variety? Normally im a malt scotch customer but enjoy a cold beer after mowing the yard or splittin wood for my neighbor?
            John h.

          • Murkan Mike says:

            Heineken is a Dutch beer, outside of the US Military markets, you won’t find it here in Germany. Germans don’t drink it. It actually needs a special import permission to be sold here in Germany, as it doesn’t pass the “Beer Purity Laws of 1516”, since it contains more than malt, water and hops. I suspect the Dutch use rice, which is cheaper and adds a sour flavor. Another reason Germans won’t drink it, is because it violates the #1 beer drinking rule; It comes in a green bottle! Green glass doesn’t filter out ultraviolet light that makes beer turn bad, which is why they have to pasteurize it, which also kills not only the flavor, but the nutritional value as well. Yup, you heard that right, the NUTRITIONAL value. As I always say when drinking beer, “There’s a porkchop in every bottle!”

            • Sanders says:

              Yep. Germans I knew called Heineken a “synthetic” beer.

              All I know is whenever I drank it in the EM Club, it gave me the green shits the next morning.

  13. Trib says:

    Want to get drunk drink malt liquor want to wet your throat on a hot day drink a local beer. Want to enjoy life drink whiskey.

  14. Gator says:

    God-fucking-damnit. Disregard my comment above. Just looked it up, Anheuser-Busch bought out Rolling Rock. Fuck. Just read their wikipedia page. That whole ‘from the glass lined tanks of Old Latrobe’ line on the bottle is bullshit too. They shipped the last bottle, brewed in a glass lined tank, from there all the way back in 2006. Its now just brewed like everything else AnB makes, in the same brewery. Shit, I really gotta start doing more research. After their pro-immigration bullshit they’ve been pulling I don’t buy their products.

    • Heathen says:

      I probably had my last Rolling Rock sometime in the early 90’s since I started drinking only liquor back about then. At one time,I was up to a bottle of whiskey a day. Now, got a quart of White Whiskey that’s been there over a year. If I hit it too hard it fucks up my blood sugar.

      I’ll finish it eventually.

    • Nemo says:

      Thanks for the heads up. I had no idea either. I don’t think I’ve actually purchased any RR in 10 years or so as I’ve been drinking the Export and Johnnie Walker Black when I indulge.

  15. Lun@ticFringe says:

    The way I see it…beer is like pussy. No such thing as a bad one of either…that is as long as it hasn’t turned green.

  16. Cavguy says:

    I never met a beer I did not like! Best was the local Pilsner in Sarajevo BiH.

    Ale is not beer, it’s cat piss.

    Cavguy

  17. Bacon says:

    Never wanted to be a snob. Unfortunately, drinking great microbrews has ruined my taste buds so I can no longer enjoy regular crap beer. Damn shame.

  18. Coyote Hubbard says:

    Funny this post came so soon.

    I had a random guy in the grocery today just blurt out ” your more of a man than me”…

    After a head tilt, I asked what do you mean?

    He pointed out the six pack of tall boy Steel Reserves in my cart.
    “Made the mistake of drinking two one night, and woke up feeling like shit”

    Wasnt sure how to respond…

    • Handy N Hansom says:

      Steel Reserve is the only beer I dumped out in my entire life.
      YUCK !!!

      • Wirecutter says:

        You’ve evidently never tried to drink a Cluss then.
        It was Heilbronn’s hometown brewery and nasty nasty nasty. It had an off taste, damned near zero carbonation and to add insult to injury, was served warm.

  19. Jeffery in Alabama says:

    I saw some Miller High Life in the photo, which I like. When someone is critical of “The Champagne of Beers”, I always remember what a friend of mine who is huge High Life fan once told me, “for a few dollars more, you can drink the very best”! LOL! I’m basically in the same boat as LunaticFringe and Cavguy. I like beer.

  20. Judy says:

    LOL all I see is the fluid for the batter to dip onion rings in. If I am going to consume an alcohol product it is tequila or rum. I don’t do bourbon for personal reasons.

  21. Handy N Hansom says:

    It’s Yeunglings for me.

  22. Critter says:

    I dunno, I’ve gotten to be a bit of a beer snob in my old age, but those are all good choices to boil bratwurst in.

  23. Inbred Redneck says:

    Hell, where’s the rack full of snacks? I don’t see no jerky, or bags of chips and Tide pods.

  24. Sanders says:

    I don’t know what they put in it, maybe formaldehyde, but Olympia gives me a headache before I even get halfway through a can.

  25. Mike_C says:

    >It’s the same with any imported beer
    Yep. Sapporo from Japan (or IN Japan) is MUCH better than the crap of the same name in the US — which either comes from La Crosse, Wisconsin, or Guelph, Ontario. Used to be you could get Sapporo from Japan at a specialty Japanese grocery, but that back channel has been closed down too. So now I don’t drink Sapporo.

    Besides, Founders Breakfast Stout (Grand Rapids, Michigan) is the finest beer out there anyway. Talk about violating reinheitsgebot regulations though. A German friend stared at me in horror, “That would be illegal at home!

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
