Thanks for the tip...but...I'm in the USA... How am I going to taste one (or more) of these?
Checked out DaveSpanner's suggestion...and the website gives no "list" of "where to find" their glorious products. Suggests to me that
I'm outta luck.
What about your suggestions?
(No need to reply - just marking this thread for future reference! )
My favourite beer is one from a little known country -- Lithuania. Of course, being of Lithuanian heritage, I 'would' be partial to a beer from this
tiny country...... but apparently I'm not alone in liking Svyturys ( translation: Lighthouse ) beer. Svyturys Alaus (Alaus mean beer in
Lithuanian) won the gold medal in the Prestigious 2012 World Beer Cup competition in the Dortmunder/European style or Pilsner category..
Golden with a brilliant white , frothy head, it's a "live" beer. That is, it's unpasteurized. Perhaps that's what gives it a distinct and eminently
drinkable flavour. The second ....and third.... go down as easily as the first. A true beer drinkers beer. And it's not a fluke that it won this
competition. Svyturys won the competion, which is held every two years, back in 2001. Check it out if it's available in your area.
It' s currently available in many European countries, Canada and, now, in parts of the US.

If its beer your talking about Bombadier (i think thats right) is quite nice but im not really a beer drinker. a nice ice cold pint of tennents is
good on a hot day (not very often in scoland, and thats a lager anyways)
to tell you the truth though, I'm more of a guiness man. And talking about stouts, theres a good scottish one called Belhaven Black. ever get the
chance give it a try
I don't know that I have a favorite beer, I like a lot of them. I'm lucky enough to live in this little pocket of Colorado where we have a lot of
microbreweries. I'm a little bit spoiled with the variety of good beers we have, yet some things still come down to having a nostalgic connection
to a specific beer/memory. Corona for example is really sort of a crap beer, but there is nothing quite like a cold corona with lime when you are
out on a Mexican beach.
When I am home however I am a big fan of this one red ale, but I can't think of the name off hand. I'm not a big fan of super hoppy beers. Left
hand sawtooth, new belgium sunshine wheat, hoegaarden is decent.. I'd have to be at the LQ looking at all the different microbrews to remember which
ones I love.
I find myself annoyed whenever we travel to different places and no one has much variety in their beer.
