Meh, German beers are a bit pissy. Ale's have more depth.
There is a lot of trash out there, and so much of it is "Hey look! We're creative because we mash everything on the shelves into this beer" sh*t. But some of the best lagers/pils I've had come from craft breweries.yep, good German/Czech lagers are better than 99.9% of this triple-hopped West Coast IPA or lingonberry-chocolate stout trash
That's how we would define craft beer. Maybe it's the image or implication of the label "craft beer" is what offends you.supporting the local economy, don't need to tell me, Slow food / slow drink follower here.
those 3 beers I've posted, they are full local, relatively small breweries from villages. they are not craft beer though, but in Germany the label craft isn't local or global, but Bavarian Purity Law or not. Craft beer is usually on the NOT side.
Fairweather in Hamilton does some great beer (a lot of sour and gose type beer, too). Clifford's also has a very good porter.You guys with your fancy smancy drinks. How the hell do you afford this?
At best, I can get a 6 pack of Steeler beer. Tastes like it is directly from Burlington Bay* but beggars can't be choosers.
*i.e a polluted body of water behind steel mills and full of sewage
Well, I'm in Doucheland. Hope goose-steppin Hanz and Franz enjoy their cute party hats.when in Doucheland you say craft beer, it implies some urban lgbqt genderneutral lefties made it and added whatever into it that has nothing to do with beer, like cherry blossoms or shit
I detest the "craft beer" label though I do understand why it is used. And, yes, so much of the industry (or customers) is a big douche magnet. $10/500ml but they eat 90 cent boxes of powdered cheese and macaroni.another analogy I use a lot: Löwenbräu/Heineken/Becks are the ubers of beers, while the Altenmünster/König Ludwig/Schwarzbräu I’ve posted above are the real Taxis of beers
