Maybe not what you buy, but the styles, Brown Ale, IPA, they are great.

Sorry! But you can't beat French, Belgian & German beer. :spinner:

I worked for a couple of months in a UK "Brewery". We used to get huge road tankers coming in from the Carling, Grolsch and other chemical factories. It was our job to water it down (Called Liquoring) pasturise and bottle it.

We also did the alco-pops. Vodka Ice, Moscow Mule etc. These have no vodka in them. The guy who did it, used to pass me wearing his full chemical warfare suit, pulling a trolley of chemicals "Flavourings". The rest was made up of water and....Oh yes. Ethanol (Rocket propelant)That was the vodka!

Happy Drinking!!! :shock:

German beer still has to be the best, if you ask me. True German beer, brewed for the German market is governed by the so-called "Reinheitsgebot" or Purity Law. In other words, they are not allowed to put any chemicals into it at all. It is made only of hops, yeast, malt and water. Nothing more, nothing less. There was a big hoohah a few years ago when the EC passed a resolution allowing all other European Breweries to sell their products in Germany too, because other European countries don't have the purity law for beer. But, the Germans are astute people, so they still don't buy much in the way of "foreign" beer anyway. Mind you, I would point out that German beers that are expressly labelled as "Export" are not wholly subject to the Purity Law - so they may have a certain amount of chemicals in them - especially preservatives, thus allowing German breweries to compete on the world market.
Yeah, give me a good old German beer any time.

I too used to work at a UK brewery.

Apart from the chemicals for colour, preservative etc I was miffed at what there call 'spare beer'.

Spare beer is beer left over from packaging or beer that didn't quite come out right at the 'brew'

This beer was not chucked away, but kept as spare beer.

So all the different beers were literally mixed together.

To get rid of it, a little bit ( percentage ) is added to every other brew when it's packaged.

But of course a small ( or sometimes large ) amount is left over and goes back into spare beer.

So really, keeps going round the block.

I once asked a quality control guy why a full brew couldn't go out without any spare added, would the 'pure' beer not taste great.

He said that if they left the spare out, it would alter the 'normal' flavour that much they might get complaints.

And the end of the day though, it's all about dosh, and getting as much as possible out of every drop.

AND

Pasteurisation ( cooked, heated up ) is used to extend the shelf life of certain beers.

You want to taste it before it's cooked, bloody lovely.
