You know, being back in the UK (temporarily I hasten to add!) after 3.5 years in the States I'm of the opinion that the US has some of the worlds best beers. That wasn't the case when I moved there, or maybe I just though American Beer was all Bud, Coors, Miller, etc., really where the only difference is the branding. Now back in the UK, most places just have on draft Carling, Carlsberg, Fosters, Stella, etc. "Eurofizz" I was told it's called! "Crap" is what I call it

Anyway, we used to live right across the road from Bierkraft in Brooklyn (http://www.bierkraft.com/) and a fine selection they have too - ranging from the ever so slightly Jewish "He'Brew Messiah Bold" from San Francisco to a German Weiss Beer, "Ramstein Blond", which is, of course, from New Jersey!

We've lost the plot in the UK, there seem to be hardly any small/mid-size breweries left. In the US, the micro-breweries are in a healy state and turning out great beer. My other half bought me a membership to the Micro Beer Club - http://www.microbeerclub.com/ - highly recommended, I'll be joining when we get back.

The only edge the UK has now is the cask-conditioned ales served in the older pubs. Getting harder to find as the trend is for colder beers, nitrogen delivered from the keg, where the cask ales are served at cellar temperature. There's nothing that can beat a good pint of Old Peculiar from the cask!

Anyway, off for a pint!

Cheers,
Nick.

Follow-up Post:

Patrick,
Seattle eh? We'll be there for two weeks in Jan, after some time in MD. What do you recommend?

Nick.

Nick~

I’m jealous. There’s a ton of great places. If you get over to the Eastside, the Red Hook Brewery has great food/beer … it’s also right across the street from a great world class vineyard, not far from Seattle…

http://www.redhook.com/brew_woodinville.html

http://www.ste-michelle.com/

In downtown Seattle, you’ll have to make it down to Pike Place Market, do some shopping and watch the salmon throwing … underneath is another great place, the Pike Pub and Brewery, awesome Halibut fish & chips!!

http://www.merchantduvin.com/pages/3_pike_brewing/

Another great place not far from Pike Place;

And if your out @ a regular restaurant or hit a grocery store, you should be able to find another two of my favorites;

http://www.deschutesbrewery.com/BrewPub/OnTap/5830.aspx

http://www.fullsailbrewing.com/

And try to pick up a bag of;

Have a great time, as there are endless things to do! Drop me an email if you need advice on anything else, I lived out there for 20 years

My current fav is 90 Shilling. Appropriate name too, I might add.

A close second is Ropewalk.

I'm at work, so no drinking for me right now. That whole "Air Safety" thing kinda limits my alcohol intake as well.
