    Yeah, I remember a few different canned UK ales in the US at the time, and priced quite nicely ($1.99 for 500ml.) I think my favorite was Gales HSB. I remember talking to retailer about ordering a case for me but it was no longer available (long before Gales was taken over by Fullers).

    As outlandish as it may sound, as an American, I don't think I've ever had a CANADIAN beer?!?! I love Canadians... Do they make any good beers?

    Until construction begins, you'll probably have to settle for one named Antarctica.

    Macedonia, because then I will have tasted a beer from the entire former Yugoslavia.
    Oh wait... screw you Montenegro, and probably Kosovo. All this noncyberbalkanizing is ruining my careful planning.

    Whatever, I'll just say Latvia and go for that area instead. I mean, I've already got Estonia, Lithuania and Russia. Hopefully they don't start Balticizing or something.

  10. Interesting thread. I think the posters who selected NZ are smart. Vietnam is a great country to visit, though it's beer is all run of the mill lager (and to the poster who has judged Australian beer based on drinking a Tooheys New, I'm glad I didn't do the same thing with US beer after drinking Budweiser).

    4 Ynys Dawel, Solva, United Kingdom. Lived there as a kid. Went back a few years ago and visited some old haunts/pubs (of my dad's) as well as some new places (Sloop Inn in Porthgain for one). Wouldn't mind going back (to kind of answer the OP's question).
  13. Pembrokeshire is lovely, must have been a great place to grow up. Awesome beaches. Lacking in decent breweries however, unfortunately.

    Have had some crazy beers from Africa; funky/wild as shit...one if which was not half bad. The fact that it came in a plastic water bottle (they don't normally bottle it since it is for local consumption only) made it all that much better...

    You are in for a treat my friends. Both France and Italy are producing some solid stuff that include classic styles and their versions of american styles...hit me up if you are ever venturing to France!

    If you ask me, the best beer in Vietnam is a Bia Hoi served over a chunk of ice on any busy street corner... best beer that 10 cents can buy, IMO.

    No, it really doesn't have many virtues :)
  24. I'd have to say either Sweden or Finland. Based on what I've tried from Norway and Denmark, it would seem there's some pretty great craft beers coming out of Scandinavia these days. Too bad they can be tough to find/are expensive for the most part.
  25. As far as I can tell, Brasserie Saint-Sylvestre from France has pretty wide distribution with 3 Monts and Gavroche, and I've seen Baladin beers from Italy in Missouri.

    OP: Iceland or Sweden, mainly for Ölvisholt and Nils Oscar. And although Greenland is a part of Denmark, I'd love to try anything from Nanoq just for the novelty of it.
  26. I agree with Welsh beer as my mother is Welsh and nothing is ever exported to BC. New Zealand beer is now readily available in BC ( Epic just arrived) but I would love to see more Australian beers such as Feral in BC.

    I think I'd like to try a beer from Liechtenstein, they must have at least one brewery.

    This one.
    Having read the BA article on them piqued my curiosity. Also, would like to try an African beer that isn't a pale lager. Some of them sound out there and good or not, always game to try something different.
  32. New Zealand. Hopefully from Mount Doom.

    you can't be serious...
  34. Dude, you are missing out, Brains Dark on cask is awesome and pretty much THE beer of Cardiff traditionally.
    SA Gold is pretty tasty, cascade and styrian goldings.
    I am quite happy to have Brains as the regional brewer.

    Ha! That's awesome, man. Think I'll turn down a trade offer, though—from the sound of the article, part of what makes the beer interesting is how young and fresh it is, and I believe none of it's bottled. But have a good trip!
  39. I hate brains dark, it has a weird off taste from most pubs I've had it from. Acceptable from the bottle but still not as good as most milds. Could be worse like Greene king or just no ale at all though I guess.
  40. The Isle of Man is in fact not part of the UK (it isn't even in the EU!) which allows it to have its own laws .One is the Pure Beer Act of 1874 which only allows malt, hops, sugar,water and yeast to be used in brewing.
