That's just your opinion. I don't happen to like wine, and craft beer is over taken wine in a lot of US cities that were big wine cities, so apparently the masses don't agree with you either.

Not very clever comment and superfluous one. Of course that's just my opinion, Captain Obvious :D

I don't know, maybe. Even if it was true, US in not only country out there, you know ;)

You are in the wrong thread.

I love fruit, but don't like the taste of fermented fruit, the tastes of oak, or the way it makes me feel. I have a good friend who is a chef/wine guy who tried for years to get me to like it, but it just didn't happen. Honestly, an average beer is better than a fine wine for me.

Now let's talk about silver tequila...mmmm!

Hmmm, well actually it apparently isn't just my opinion, here are numbers: 24 billion liters of wine are drank a year compared to just 187 billions liters of beer...looks like wine lost that one. Beer has been around for about 3,500 years before wine. Of course I'm not the only person drinking all those 187 billions liters of beer in one year...more of that captain obvious stuff. Besides I really don't drink much at all, I may have one 16 ounce of beer about every other month!

Hippie Hopped American Pale Ale
McCall Brewing Company, McCall, ID

I had seen it before but never tried it. Standing in front of the singles at my neighborhood market it sounded good, and it is!

Omnipollo. Lila,

Whipped Lemon Cream, Almond Frosted, Cinnamon Roll Imperial IPA. 8%

Lemon and Cinamon are strong. It’s a little hard to tease out the almond. A few percent more might bring out the flavors. but this is good forlongering summer days.

Today 10:35

Some of the beers I've had over the last few weeks, no photos of them sorry, just links to Australian websites.

A very easy drinking and delicious beer
https://www.danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_917410/bridge-road-brewers-beechworth-pale-ale-330ml

All of the first three beers are great

The bottleO that I work at just got this beer in, it was nice but I had a cold so wasn't able to enjoy it as much as possible
https://www.beercartel.com.au/philter-caribbean-stout/

The red Tennant and the Silent Knight Porter are really good
http://www.mobrewing.com.au/modusbeer

Lastly this beer is very creamy and smooth
http://www.batchbrewingco.com.au/products/elsie-milk-stout

Now that it's spring I'll probably move away from the dark beers. Trawling through this thread I've realised that the ABV's of all the beers mentioned are very high, which you don't really get in Australia as much but craft beers are raising the % and IBU's much more than our usual mainstream beers.

Lastly I tried this beer recently, but wasn't too much of a fan, it was too sweet for me, but i'll have to try the original beers by the German company to find out whether it was because of the collaboration or not.
