Whenever I'm over in The Netherlands or Belgium I always try to find a few bottles of Westvleteren beer. It a Trappist beer from Belgium and one of my favorites.

I'm compiling a list from this for my first trip to a liquor store after I turn 21. Not long to go.

Mine is any cold one open in front of me lol, me being 20 and from the US drinking is not really "legal" for me so I have only had a few but I really don't have a favorite.

I love Scottish beer. Low on hops. The same lovely peaty water which makes the whisky world-renowned. These are the three which I always top up with when I get back to Scotland. Although I did find out about a shop selling them in Frankfurt so it would be worthwhile hiring a car to make a trip some day and stocking up again.

Innis & Gunn comes in small bottles although you can also buy a larger bottle for twice the price. Alcohol is about 8% from what I remember. It's unlike any other beer and definitely the best I have ever tasted.

Another favourite is Heather ale which is quite light and refreshing with a very distinctive taste.

And finally Dark Island ale. Very smooth with a very peaty taste.

The best German beer I have tasted is:

There's nothing else like cask-aged beer, that's why. Mostly scotch casks in their case, but not exclusively (I know they have a rum-aged style). Actually they made a Canada Day special edition for export here a few times... There are a number of Canadian craft beers made the same way - Nickel Brook had a fantastic blend aged in bourbon casks.

Wouldn't you know I bought some of that very stuff today. It turns up from time to time in Ontario; go figure.

That's a style I'm quite fond of, too. And all of the other "huck in whatever clippings we took from the bush out back" beer styles. Heather, spruce, pine, juniper, whatever's on hand... There's another Ontario brewery who makes some very good scotch ales; the aptly named Highlander brewery.

... this is my signature!

A bus to Detroit or Sault wouldn't be more than $50 from anywhere in the state. Then you can just walk across the border.

RE: Your Favorite Beers; Everyday, Top Shelf, & Style.
Small breweries producing unique beers are really thriving in the US these days. Even in my godforsaken area of the country I can find any number of new ones to try at any time. The US used to be the worst place in the world to drink beer, but that is changing rapidly now.
