A call to my foreign comrades...

    Since I'm over here in America, where "beer" is another word for "thin fermented cat piss," I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to look for a good beer. So, I'm calling out to my foreign buddies, and perhaps my American afficianados; I need to find a good pilsner, for a bread recipe from Andreas Viestad. Make me a recommendation, preferably one that won't involve me going to countries that speak Crazy Moon Language and make disturbing porn.

    EDIT: Recipe in question can be found here.

    EDIT 2: Yes, I can spell Scandanavian names. Ja.

    Hush. That'd be easy. I need to do things the difficult, manly way.

    You got some good canadian beers. Sleeman is okay for example. If you look a little you might find some interesting products from smaller breweries. We got a few in the province of Quebec... I'm sure elsewhere there are similar beers. I doupt you'll find a mainstream beer that you could actually call a beer without crying at the same time.

    So why ask foreigners about it at all?

    It's not like pilsner-type beers are popular everywhere. We're more into lager here, for example. I'd try that recipe with a bottle of Czech pilsner, like the Urquell.

    American beer is excellent ... as long as you don't count any beer;
    1) that you can buy in a can.
    2) that you can find in a convenience store or grocery store.
    or 3) Any beer you see advertised on TV (if they can afford a Superbowl ad then that goes double).

    So WhaleShark, what part of the country are you in?

    Several parts of the US (Colorado for example) have a fine tradition of local breweries and brew pubs ... for example I live just 3 blocks from these guys.

    Anyway, If you want a Plisner for for your recipe, I recommend another Colorado brew from up in the north part of the state http://www.newbelgium.com/beers_bp.php.

    A guy across town sells "Mr. Beer" brand beer. It's the best beer I've ever had, methinks.

    Sam Ad is usually my drink of choice.

    Sounds like you don't like many countries at all...

    Ooh, I generated a reaction. Nice.

    Anyhow, I live in Delmar, a suburb of Albany, in New York. I'm not much of a drinker myself, so I'm not really familiar with all the different nuances between beers, and which countries tend to prefer which beers. My limited experience has been with mainstream American beers, all of which taste like crap to me. The only thing I've tried here that I actually enjoy is Guiness.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far; I might try hitting up some local liquor store and seeing what they have.

    And yes, all you foreigners speak Crazy Moon Language, because I'm an arrogant American and I can just write off entire nations like that. Seriously. It's in the Constitution.

    New York? Well if you want a local brew check out Pete's Wicked ... it's brewed in Utica.

    I'm actualy drinking a Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde as I type this (lovely lager with a touch of strawberry).

    Their Wicked Ale is pretty good as is their Rally Cap Ale. (and their Strawberry Blonde is one of my wife's favorites ... that's why she picked up a sixer tonite). I should try their Cream Ale (since I tend to like Cream Stouts)

    I'm a Finn and basically doesn't matter what beer it is as long as there is plenty of it and often...so don't think I have ever drunk something that I'd have hated taste wise...and anyhow, it becomes trivial after the 4th pint.

    Some brews I have enjoyed:
    -Saarenmaa - Estonian brand, has this butterly texture to it..creamy I guess is the right word.
    -Tsingtao - always liked it, fresh, doesn't have any bitter after taste. Might be I associate it with good times as I drunk this quite a lot on my trips to China..
    -Tiger is quite similar to Tsingtao, therefore I like it.
    -Hoegaarden Whitbier, which I learned to enjoy while staying in Holland. Lemon is the main flavor I'd say, very fresh. You can drink this stuff in huge quantities :) White beer..pretty odd actually.
    -Baltica No9 is my favourite when in Russia. Quite strong alcohol taste usually.

    Hell yeah, New Belgium is great. I have a keg of Sunshine Wheat in my kegerator right now. ODell is just down the street from them. Just went to both places last weekend actually. If anyone's in the area, it's definitely a good time. New Belgium has five tasters for free, and ODell's is $3 (but that can also be put towards a merchandise purchase).
