For me it would be Wales. The Otley brewing company looks pretty intriguing.
As an east caster, I will go ahead and say the west coast of the usa is my first big time beer destination.yes this is not another country but it might as well be as far as distribution is concerned.
New Zealand because of the hop varieties.
You know Wales is a part of the United Kingdom?
Still a country my friend!
Whaddya know, never knew they actually called it that
Welsh-wise, Tiny Rebel is definitely worth checking out. Had two of their beers and they were proper gorgeous.
Both Brains and Felinfoel were exporting their beers to the US in the 1990's (both even had beers labeled/branded simply "Welsh Ale" here). Like many UK breweries, their products are no longer as readily available (if at all) in the US.
2 words for you: Tiny Rebel
Don't drink Brains or Felinfoel, unless it's Brains Craft you see.
"Well lush" would be the local terminology
I hear the new brewery in Fasdflijasdiljasildjasijdfoaisjdasiojdiojdshire, Wales is fantastic.
Oh well, guess it's back to Dirty Sanchez re-runs for me.
Farson in Malta makes Cisk Lager, which is said to be a crappy adjunct lager.
they also make a Milk Stout that has a good reputation. my family is from Malta, we don't have alot in the way of noteworthy contributions so it is unusual one of them would be beer. welll, and me of course.
Well, lush or alternatively wicked, as Goldie Lookin Chain might say (from the same town as Tiny Rebel too).
I've started seeing MOA beer pop up here, from the local Whole Foods... so it has to be around somewhere.
Australian beer is pretty underwhelming. Tooheys New is probably one of the worst beers I've ever had and Baron's Black Wattle seed ale was just straight up weird tasting.
One thing I'd like to try is Ethiopian beer. Just for sh--s and giggles.
It does exist...
Japan. After watching the original Iron Chef I'm curious to see which innards make it into the beer.
I think if it were ANY country, I would go with Urwagwa from Rwanda, just to say I tried it. Beer made from fermented banana juice and sorghum flour. Sounds great!
I visited NZ for a couple weeks in November and I stumbled across a few awesome beers. This one especially was delicious:
Vietnam. I was really intrigued by this article the NY Times ran almost three years ago about local beer in Vietnam. I thought it sounded fascinating, personally, and I'd love to have that experience.
"In Vietnam, Traveling an Unlikely Beer Trail" – NY Times Travel
Sweden, because nobody around here carries anything from there.
This is just silly.
Wait a minute...you mean wale hunters are really after UK people?
I think anywhere I could try beer at he point of origin would be dandy, but I would pick Belgium first.
Egypt. It was the center of the brewing world in antiquity, never had a beer made there.
Been wanting to go to Vietnam for other reasons than beer (oh yeah, pho yeah) but just found a new reason to go. One day...
It's a sweet article, and the info on local beer there was fascinating, I thought—totally different perspective on beer.
And yeah, I could go for some pho right now.
I imagine Vietnamese beer has to be better than Chinese beer, which is good for what it's good for (drinking something that's not the local water, which very well might make you sick). I'm always looking for another excuse to visit Vietnam. I'd be interested to try various northern European beers as well.
I'd also like to try some of the German, Russian, Belgian and Czech beers that aren't exported to the US. I'm not a huge Japanese beer fan, but I found some good stuff when I was there that I've never seen here, Sapporo's Yebisu brand in particular.
Come on dogfish head. Make 120 minute ICE. Brewed and ice distilled in the forgotten continent. The next Utopias!
I'm sure they've thought about it but a trip out there is ridiculously expensive.
Craft from France and Italy. Had their BMC shit.
True derranged, but Once they expand further this will be of little consequence.
I had this at an Ethiopian restaurant in Boston and it is a perfectly acceptable pairing with injera.
I definitely had the Felinfoel-
but somehow it was in cans, in my foggy memory banks. Maybe I am confusing it with the Wells IPA- I used to get them both around '99-2000. Not bad beers, especially for the price back then. I do wish I had run across Brains; I always wanted to try their dark mild.
I need to try that famous nuclear warhead beer from North Korea. I heard it is the bomb!!!! Sweet
Pakistan. Specifically Murree Brewery, the only brewery in the whole country. Apparently they will be distributing to the US in the future.
Separate names with a comma.
