What USA beer would you call the most classic to a beer lover from somewhere else? - Page 2

post #31 of 40
If a friend from another country came to the US and they wanted to taste signature beers of course I would being them to a local brewery. Red Hook Brewery is 1.5 miles from my house and they make a good beer.

But for a USA signature beer I would give them Bud in a can. Just like I would give them Coca-Cola first, not Jones soda first, sure Jones is better but Coca-Cola is USA. Also they would probably jump up and down with joy and want to have their picture taken outside of a McDonald's; quality, no, USA, yes.

Sadly most of our signature products are products of marketing and mass manufacturing.

From living in Japan for a while, I would say Budweiser, the beer is widely available almost anywhere.

Would not be my favorite, but it's seem to represent America the best in the Land of the rising sun.

Sadly, it would be next to impossible to find a foreigner who would want to have their picture taken outside of a McDonald's .... and for a number of reasons... the main one being: it would be a foreigner from the very remotest areas who hadn't got the ubiquitous McD in their own town or city!

Well no not really, McDonald's and other fast food chains offer regional cuisine. The McDonald's in Moscow is not the same as the McDonald's in NYC. So having the American version is something special.

Ok let's get back to the beer!

I'm thinking our "national" beer is Budweiser above anything else. It has more recognition than any other, and as much as it's not the best it's not bad, either. It does represent the style that's most commonly consumed here. We could do better in our reputation, much better,but we could do worse too.

I'd still rather have a Sam Adams, Yuengling or Anchor Steam, thank you.

As I thought I stated earlier, Bud in 16 oz cans tastes much better than what's in their 12 oz containers.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.

Rolling Rock

Rolling Rock has been quenching thirsts in towns both small and large since 1939. That’s the year that the Tito Brothers began their small brewing operation in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The brothers bottled their unique pale lager in a distinctive green bottle with a painted-on label. The beer – and its bottle – struck a chord with the hardworking folks of the northeast, and a regional favorite was born.

Like many small businesses, Rolling Rock expanded over the years, growing from a regional treasure to a national favorite. Also, like many successful small businesses, the ownership of the Rolling Rock brand has changed hands over the generations. But the folks who make Rolling Rock and who enjoy Rolling Rock have defiantly stayed grounded. Doesn’t matter if they live in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Missouri, or California, New York or Florida, or anywhere in between — when you’re Born Small Town, you don’t lose your roots.

I loved Rolling Rock until recently when the moved the bottling plant to Jersey. It just doesn't taste the same anymore. So long, Latrobe. I don't drink it much since then.

I'd have to agree with Yeti. Bud is known round the world as a classic American Beer. PBR has quite a history and longevity as well. Bud I think is the strongest brand.

Hi all,



What do I think is the most classic U.S. beer? I dunno...probably Bud or Miller.




my favorite beer produced in America?

I like all different types of beer. But my favorite would have to be Goose Island Honkers Ale. This isn't because it's a (semi-local) brand either...it's simply got great flavors and depth as well.

Their pub has some decent food too...if you find yourself around Lincoln park you can visit the Goose Island Clybourne location. They even have a "guest tap", currently a Three Floyd's variety (another good beer!). Don't bother with the Wriglyville location, unless your at a Cubs game.


cheers,
dan
