British beer is best

Advantages: Wide regional variations
Disadvantages: None

British beer is best. How can I say this? Just consider the alternatives. Germany produces fine lager beers. As do some other European countries. American and Canada produce horrible ersatz lager beer style drinks. And most other countries who produce ...

Review of Does Britain produce the best beer?

"Alcohol. The cause and solution of all of the world's problems" - Homer J Simpson Truer words have never been spoken, as we Brits particularly understand. Alcohol, primarily beer, has been at the centre of our economy, social lives and culture since ...

Review of Does Britain produce the best beer?

German go down fast, but Brits don't rush

Advantages: yeah!
Disadvantages: not found easily outside Britain

I definitely side with Britain on this. German beer is good, but try drinking it in summer with 45C of sun hitting you in the head. I live mostly in Greece, coming back to London only for a month yearly, so believe me, i know what im talking about. Ever s ...
