Hi All… I’m a beer fanatic/snob… I started transitioning from a casual beer drinker to a aficionado when I was stationed in Colorado Springs in the early 2000s and began to experience the plethora of microbrews along the Front Range… I would regularly have some new microbrew in my fridge w/ Laughing Lab and Fat Tire as my staples.
When I was stationed just outside of Oxford, England after Colorado… I began my love affair with Real Ales and the organization CAMRA: https://camra.org.uk/
My subsequent move to Germany expanded my love of the German purity law beers and the amazing differences of flavors you could experience w/ only 5 ingredients.
Finally… my current role lets me travel throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa… so the amazing beers throughout every region have continued my passion for them… for instance… Heinekin and Amstel (not light) are two phenomenal beers when experienced anywhere in the Netherlands, but tastes like turpentine when out of a can in the US.
I’m not a fan of a lot of spice… like Belgian and French beers… and I sure do not like Lambics (blech!)
What is everyone’s favorite beers?
