    I tried Elysian's Dragonstooth Stout when I went out to a joint on Capitol Hill with my friend, last weekend. It was tasty!

    it's not on the wane at all... cheap beer still dominates in the USA. microbrews are exploding and selling like gangbusters, and for some people microbrews are the only beer that exists anymore. but Bud and Miller and the rest still blow them away. in my experience cheap beer still outsells microbrews a million to one in the USA.

    i love microbrews, but i am not ashamed to say i am a Bud man.
    actually i am a Tecate Man. +

    1554 rules. I love all New Belgium's stuff.

    I just got one of these (Pyramid Brewery) from Safeway... For not even $2 it's pretty good. 7% alc, ftw.

    Yes, but those numbers are slowly shifting in the microbrews' favor. I heard on the radio just this week that overall beer sales were down 7% this year compared to last year, but microbrew sales were up... which means that it's the premium beer manufacturers that are taking it in the shorts.

    Which doesn't bother me in the least. They make an inferior product, they deserve to lose sales.

    I don't drink much beer anymore but don't think I've every had an American beer that was actually good.

    It's kind of like hot sauces. I can get a 69 cent bottle of Mexican hot sauce that's far better than any five dollar bottle of US hot sauce.

    We seem to be incapable of brewing good beer.

    Czech beer is probably the best though Belgium has some good ones too.

    one of the bars across the river in college always had Indiana Beer Day, when the beers from our microbreweries were sold at a discount... my sis and I would always go to hit up our favorite microbrews from the state... she absolutley adores Upland Brewery's Wheat Ale while I tended to go for Three Floyd's Robert the Bruce Scottish Style Ale.... both are worth recommending

    Well, before you render that final judgment I would recommend that you go back and try products from the brewers that have been mentioned... notably New Belgium, Pyramid, Dogfish Head, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, and Victory. I fully agree that nothing in the APW class is worth the trouble.

    Some historians believe that it was instrumental in starting civilization, giving hunter-gatherers a good reason to adopt settled agriculture.

    I have to admit, though, that I prefer American Piss Water to any beer that tastes like Sam Adams-of course, I don't drink beer for the taste, anyway.
