I admit it.

I like Beck's beer.

I'm sad to see that they've been misleading us for some time, since it is no longer an imported beer:


May keep drinking it, since it is far better than many of the other alternatives.

So, anyone got other suggestions for a reasonably priced, authentic, brewed in Germany, lager, or pilsner beer?

I'm not really fond of the darker, more bitter biers.

Warstiener, St Pauli Girl, Spaten.

Warstiener Dunkel. It's yummy. And brings many happy memories of my two tours of duty to mind.

I used to have a Spaten, occasionally, and do like it.

I thought St. Pauli Girl is American too.

I am spoiled on Czech beer, but when I must go to Germany the only pils I find drinkable is Warsteiner. Now a nice hefeweizen on a sunny Bavarian day is another story!

I've switched to microbreweries. The big players like MillerCoors and InBev really only sell a "brand" and the beer could be brewed in any country.

St Pauli is brewed in Germany for export only. Spaten may be brewed in Canada as many European and Asian beers now are but I think it is still brewed over seas.

On the plus side, looks like I may be able to get a little money back, if the lawyers don't siphon all of it off, first.

There's a poo-storm erupted in the UK over 'Doom Bar', which is currently the UK's most popular draught bitter. The Doom Bar logo always includes the provenance 'Rock Brewery, Cornwall'.

However, the brewery was bought by Coors about five years ago and people have only just cottoned on to the fact that the vast majority of "Doom Bar (Rock, Cornwall)" is actually brewed 250 miles away from Cornwall in Coors' brewery at Burton-on-Trent (the former Bass brewery).

Storm them with torches and pitchforks, I say……..

I like German styles of beer but for the most part their exports have a lot to be desired

All beer sold in the U.S. are fraudulent. I dunno, maybe that's changed, but I could never understand how I could swing back so many for comparable levels of inebriation I used to get on nearly half the same volume up north.

Luv Budvar but I prefer Porters.

That explains why it's gone so bland.

Recommendations if you can find these:

1) Wurzburger

2) Bitburger

3) Hofbrau

4) Hacker-Pschorr

5) Dinkelacker

6) Franziskaner Weissbier

Sorry I omitted the umlauts – my keyboard doesn't have any.

You're ok with hand-pulled Doom Bar – that's still brewed in Rock.

Last Hussar11 Feb 2016 4:15 p.m. PST

Sorry they do KEG Doom Bar? – Civilization has ended.

Jemima Fawr13 Feb 2016 2:19 a.m. PST

Good God, no! I was talking about the bottled muck. I agree though, cask Doom Bar now tastes nothing like it did when I first came across it down in Dorset some years ago. They are now selling something like 25 million pints of the stuff per year.
