We have members from all over the world so I am curious what is your favorite beer.
For me it is a pale ale from Montreal Canada called Griffon.

The world's best beers

The best of the best


The very best of the world's beers have the awards to prove it. From international award ceremonies to local honours, experts across the globe have labelled some of the finest brews in the land. All you have to do is kick back and enjoy them.





HEF, Burleigh Brewing Co. (Australia)


Gold Coast brew, HEF, was a big winner at this year's Brewers Association Beer World Cup in the US. Despite being one of the most popular categories at the event, the South German-Style Hefeweizen/Hefeweissbier fought off stiff competition, beating 84 other entries to claim the gold.


Rodenbach Grand Cru, Palm Breweries (Belgium)


Winner of World's Best Ale at the 2011 World Beer Awards, Rodenbach Grand Cru is "wonderfully complex" Belgian beer bursting with tart, tangy flavours of fruit and smoked malt. In the same year, it was also voted World's Best Ale, World's Best Dark Ale, World's Best Old/Vintage Dark Ale, and Europe's Best Old/Vintage Dark Ale.


Hop Henge IPA, Deschutes Brewery (US)


US-brewed Deschutes Hop Henge has taken the title of World's Best Imperial IPA three times. This dense, fruity beer is described as "bold, yet balanced" and according to the brewers, it goes down especially well with a portion of fish and chips


Temptress, Holgate Brewhouse (Australia)


Beer-lover and brewing master, Joel Woolerson, describes this Victorian-brewed porter as "smooth as hell", and it seems he's not the only person who's a fan. Infused with rich Dutch cocoa and whole vanilla beans, this chocolatey malt was awarded a silver medal at the Australian International Beer Awards in 2009, and a a bronze in 2010.


Hop Hog, Feral Brewing Company (Australia)


A different take on the traditional-style India pale ale, Hop Hog is a "consistent American pale ale that has a crap load of flavour". If that glowing review wasn't enough of a reason to give it try, it also won gold medals at the 2009 and 2010 Australian International Beer Awards in the India Pale Ale category, and took the Andale trophy for Champion Ale in 2009.


Brooklyn Lager, Brooklyn Brewery (US)


Brooklyn Lager has been winning awards for years, starting with first place at the Great American Beer Tasting in 1989. Joel reckons this Vienna-style larger has a "lovely maltiness", making it a brew "you could drink for hours."


Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock, Kuhnhenn Brewing Company (US)


A long-running gold medal winner in the speciality category at the RateBeer Best awards, Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock is a fruity dessert-style beer with real raspberries and chocolately undertones. It's so fancy that the brewers recommend serving it in a flute glass


Glutenberg Rousse, Brasseurs Sans Gluten (Canada)


Brewed from buckwheat, millet, quinoa and chestnut, this French Canadian beer from Brasseurs Sans Gluten was awarded a gold medal at the 2012 Brewers Association Beer World Cup. Glutenberg Rousse is describes as red ale with aromas of ripe plums and caramel, and flavours of toasted bread and roasted chestnut.

The worst beer I ever had was a Pittsburgh brew called "Olde Frothingslosh" (not kidding). It had 2 naked fat chicks on the can and that alone was enough to put you off drinking the beer.

tell me this

i like a malty beer and someone told me to try a kilkenny beer has anybody else got any recommendations for me to try

8 years ago
gedmen

Well its said that Scotch Ales are of a malty taste however, the Belgians do specialize in malty beers.

The Ales we drink over here you are unlikely to get in Aus unless they are exported and have an international reputation as with kilkenny.

I find the beers in the south taste fruitier than the beer from the north which is darker & drier tasting.

ale or lager

@p6, Stella is popular over here,Carlsberg & Carling are well known lagers, Newcastle Brown is a popular Ale, you've probably tried Guinness.

You could also mix lager with cordial for a refreshing drink on a hot day, Lime or Blackcurrant both mix well with lager as does lemonade to make a shandy,the same can be done with bitter.

Love Newcastle, but Guinness isn't really my cup of tea. Will have to try the others as I've seen them in local spirit shops.

8 years ago

@p6, sounds like you like a lot of the kinds of beer I like, I am from canada and whenever I head to the states I try and get in as much of the local beers as I can, I have to admit the microbreweries down there are doing quite well, some that I like are
Anchor Steam
Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA
Dragonmead Dragon Daze Hemp Ale
Mad Tom IPA
and a lot more
If you can find them there are a few from scotland, we get them around x-mas and they are traditional Scottish ales, they make an amazing Heather ale, elderberry and pine ale too.
