    What's your favourite beer and why?
    Personally I can't get enough of the Belgian Trapista Rochefort, "cloudy with yeast and thick enough to chew on"!

    Anything really but I much prefer beer that is fermented in the bottle rather than filtered. Hence my favourite beer is the Coopers range.
    Heh I forgot about that thread.

    Why? It has the best flavour:calorie ratio of any beer brewed, a rich, creamy body, and a low enough alcohol content that I can drink it all night and still concentrate on my darts.

    I live in Belgium and can tell you that that is not one that stands out. Over here, Leffe is a good one, Jupiler is one of the ones that people drink the most, Stella Artois is mostly exported, there's also Chimay, another famous one, and loads of others that I cannot remember the names of.
    So many are good and breweries are all over the place!

    I've only ever had Berline Weiße though (both red and green).

    I suppose another beer thread doesn't hurt, as long as we find a niche for it

    Leffe and Chimay are actually quite popular in Sweden, and I got my hands on a Chimay Blue from 2003 a while back that was really special.
    Is Stella Artois Belgian! I had no idea!

    Only problem with Guinness is that it tastes differently depending on the place! Guinness in Sweden is pretty poor. :(

    When I am in a mood for beer I can never turn down a good Heffe, no matter the brew.
