Default Local beers?

PapaBill's thread got me thinking. When I'm in a new place I like to try the local brews. Maybe if we all post our favorites we'll be inspired to try something new that we can't get anywhere else when we visit a new place.

What are your favorite regional beers that you can't get anywhere else?

In the western U.S. I like Fat Tire. You can't get it east of the Mississippi.

In Costa Rica I really enjoyed Imperial. Haven't seen it in the U.S.

Oh, almost forgot one, in the Czech Republic I had one called Budweiser Budvar that was not related to the Anheuser-Busch brand. It was very good. I heard that it couldn't be exported due to trademark problems with the name.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I like Red Stripe too. In Denmark I like Carlsberg and Touborg.

In the Caribbean, try RedStripe of course, But others to try are Carib, available throughout the islands. On Dominica (not Dominican Republic) try Kabuli, it is the local beer and is excellent. In St Lucia, try Piton (named of course for the Pitons ). It too is quite good. When in Mexico, there is always Dos xx's.
Domestically I will try the various seasonal brews of Sam Adams.

Ooh, that reminded me... in Puerto Rico we tried a local brew... I forget what it was called, maybe "Presidente"? I'm not sure.

Here's a pic of us enjoying it!



Cheers,

There's a terrific Thai beer called Singha. You can find it in any Thai restaurant in the States, although it lacks the unique flavor of the original that I used to enjoy in Thailand. Maybe that's because, if Bangkok urban legend was correct, the brewery added a touch of formaldehyde to give it that extra tang!

In Belgium, Hoogarden or Stella Artois, in Nassau, Kalik, in Germany anything - it's all great.

We have a local beer called "Edmund Fitzgerald" with a picture of the freighter on it. I find it rather tasteless, in both senses of the word......how can you name a beer after a ship that sank with 29 (mostly local) people aboard and it just doesn't taste good. I refuse to order it for my restaurant.

My favorite beer is available in most U.S. Stores..... Pilsner Urquell (Czech Republic)

I'm also very fond of Dos Equis' "Noche Buena" beer that they do just for the holidays.
It is much more stout than their usual fare. It is easier to find in Mexico but can sometimes be found in the states.

Not to Mention Pete's Wicked Ale from California.

Oregon has a lot of neat micro-breweries, but I'm not up on my Oregon beers right now because we usually just drink wine with dinner.
