Malt Liquor.


(The more dangerous the better ie.. Bull, Magnum, Colt 45). Plus everyone will save enough money to buy strippers and gamble.

Yuengling Lager is a good beer. Although its hard to find, its found in Pennsylvania/New York/New Jersey area, and in Florida, and a few other places. Definitely a good lager though. Red Stripe is also a nice lager, but its imported from Jamaica.

/not going just defending that not all american beer sucks
//yes I have drank imports, favorite imports usually end up being belgian though.

Based on purely academic research (ahem), if you must do domestic-only:

We have many respectable microbrews, and quite a few regional beers, but there are few really good nationwide-availability bears. Sam Adams is the decent exception that you're likely to find in every bar in the nation.

thats why america has TONS of micro brewerys...prolly more then most countries...

366 in the US, and 782 in Germany

If you also count medium-size and large ones Bavaria alone has 640.

If you drive through Oberfranken district and stop at each brewery for a quick sample you're probably in danger of losing your license after some 20 miles.

Black & Tan = Guiness + Bass - Very nice combination of a light ale and a dark beer.

If you want to be practical, then American Imports or American Breweries would be the most economical solution to cool beverages during the festivities. May I suggest the following:

It might be beneficial to find out the particular pallet of those who will be attending. What are the folks partial to?

American Ales:
Ambers
Barley Wine
Black and Tan's
Double Porters
IPA's
Porters
Sours
Stouts

American Lagers:

All-Malts
Ambers
Double Pilsners
Malts
Pilsners


Plus there's Meads and Ciders, and don't forget Hybrids that tend to have fruity or smoky undertones for those hip urbanites that prefer sweetness and "the look" over flavour and complexity.

Living in the area of the US where micro-brews first became mainstream, there are hundreds of suggestions I would have, including my own home-brew. But logistically only mainstream micro-brews would likely be available in Las Vegas. The Hotel would likely have a list of distributors they have in-house that you can choose from, hopefully some than the masses can generally accept and enjoy.

May your glasses always be full and your beer always cold!

For US beers, anything from New Belgium (Fort Collins, Colorado) is awesome. I particularly enjoy 'Sunshine', although by far their most popular brew is 'Fat Tire'. I also highly recommend Pyramid (All across the western US) brews, in particular their hefewiezen.

For Canadian beers, I highly recommend anything from Unibroue, with my favorites being 'La Fin Du Monde' and 'Maudite'.

Anyone who bases the quality of US beer on Budweiser, Miller, and Coors has a lot to learn about the state of brew in North America. I've consumed beer on a fair portion of this planet we call home and have sampled brews imported directly from most of the places where I have not yet personally set foot, and I have yet to taste the vastly superior beer that so many people claim exists everywhere except the States. To those of you who want to experience beer at its best, a simple visit to any Seattle brewpub should do the trick. The vibrance of the local microbrew community and the dedication to the art and science of making beer has, in my opinion, no greater home. To the naysayers among you, continue to live in ignorance. It is, as they say, 'bliss'.


You my good sir have excellent taste. I would also like to throw in two other micro-breweries: Pike Brewery (Seattle) and Deschutes River Brewery (Bend, Oregon). Pike makes a Scottish ale called "Kilt Lifter" that will knock your freakin socks off.

Deschutes has several different beers and they are all top notch, easily as good as anything I ever had in Germany or England. My particular favorite from Deschutes is "Quail Springs IPA" an India Pale Ale...mmmmmmmmmmm Kent Golding hops...aaalllrghghgh (ala Homer Simpson).

All you Europeans need to get a load of the Northwestern United States' micros...guarantee it will change your views on American beer. I didn't appreciate German or English beer until I went there and had the local...read NON EXPORT...beers.

and to the poster who said beer in cans is unacceptable unless its a 20gallon can with a tap...you get the A+ for today

Man, now I want a good beer (stuck at work). DAMN YOU O.P. FOR STARTING THIS THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!Very Happy

Comercial beers in the United States are bland because rice is substituted in for some of the grain giving it a lighter body and flavor. It's inspired by pilsners for a customer base that prefers a less intense brew, namely women. But as has already been mentioned decisions at those monster brew factories are made on what sells and not what makes a good beer, so they are not a good indicator of the quality of American beer in general just as Guiness (exported) is a poor example of the best Europe has to offer.

Myself I started brewing my own creations about ten years ago. No storebought brew from any country can come close to approaching the quality of even my poorest attempt.

Save for a couple of local micro breweries where the beer is brewed by people who know their stuff and served fresh I can't even bring myself to drink anything not made by myself or one of my friends that also practice the art.

Both of these peole have very good tastes, cant go wrong with anything these two have to say.

If you can get your hands on it, dogfish head, most everything they have is very tantilizing. Their World Wide Stout is very tasty, and at 20%, not 20 proof, 20%, will set you down really quick. Sadly it is a seasonal brew, most everything they put out is good, stay away from the raspberry.

My personal preferance would be the Norwegian beer Dahls
since there's no better brand of beer,and because they brew it (or at least used to brew it) in the city where I live. Anyone who decides to visit Norway should drink a gallon or two of it,you'll know what I mean.

I must say that if you're going to do a US beer, then please do Sam Adams, it's pretty close to Europe-quality beers :)

Ofcourse, there's only one beer, Grolsch :)


I don't drink beer and I'm not going but I defend Grolsch :D

http://www.grolsch.com/

I'm with you all the way (not drinking, not going, but hey, it's ours, right? Wink)
