Wonderful Varieties of Beer to Try – belgian beer
Any time you want to talk the best beers, chances are people will start naming a lot of the brands that market the hardest. While I do enjoy the occasional Bud Light, Becks, or other widely advertised beverage, I tend to prefer the taste of smaller breweries that give their product a little more love.
Here are some of my current favorite types of beer that you may not always hear about on the television.
The first company that I have to mention is Amstel Light. After spending a good amount of time in The Netherlands, specifically Amsterdam I learned to fall in love with this beer. Heineken also hails from this city, but over time my affinity switched to Amstel.
I would be remiss to make a list of my favorite types of beer without giving any mention to a Belgian Beer of some sort. It is hard to pick a winner from this country, but I have to give praise to Delerium, specifically their “Fin Du Monde” brew, which has an incredibly high content of alcohol without sacrificing taste.
Another beer company that I always feel compelled to order when I see it on a menu is Rogue. Two of my favorites from this up and coming brewery is the Dead Guy Ale and their Chocolate Stout, which is much better than it may sound.
Any time I go out for sushi or ramen, I am no doubt going to order a Japanese beer of some sort. To me there are only really two options: Kirin and Sapporo. I find Sapporo a little too heavy for my taste and prefer the taste of Kirin Ichiban.
When it comes to wheat based beer, it is hard to get much better than a Blue Moon. This stuff is incredibly tasty and refreshing while not being too sweet. It is not a beer you can take down more than a few of but on a summer day it is hard to beat its taste.
As it stands, this is my list, however there are always new brews being developed and worth trying out.
