Okay, maybe not ALL the beers of the world, but our favorites
from where we've been!
Presidente (the one and only Dominican beer!)
Bulgaria: Zagorka (say it loudly and it sounds like a Russian swear word)
Moldova: Baltika, preferably number 3. Our all time favorite beer.
Madiera: Mostly drank Coral, the local beer, but mixed in a few imports from England (huge English tourist island).
Egypt: Stella (not Stella Artois), and Sakkara. Beer was supposedly invented in Egypt over 5000 years ago. .
. hard to tell by these two brands, pretty mainstream.
Korea: OB Lager, Cass, and Hite. Mike preferred the OB Lager (owned by Labatts) and I liked Hite, mainly because
I like saying the name.
Benin: Castel Adequate for what we needed it for
(from Holland). Only beer there, all had to be smuggled in, as beer was illegal!!!
France: Carlsberg We had to drink something. . . French aren't exactly famous for BEER!!!
Jordan: See above. . . not a big beer drinking country due to Muslim influence. . .
Spain: Don't remember. . . except San Miguel. . .
Germany: Almost too many to list, but we preferred the Augustiner. . .
Japan: Almost all the beer here gave me a headache, but we drank Asahi, Sapporo and Ebisu the most
Chad: Chari and Gala, I liked Chari (same name as river that flows through N'Djamena), Mike liked Gala.
Thailand: Singha or Singha gold, depending on your preference for alcohol content. Singha has 6%, Singha gold 4.5%.
Would settle for Tiger if we had to.
Burma: Myanmar and Tiger (although Tiger is not Burmese beer). Occasionally, a Mandalay, which had a bad reputation
the first time Mike was here.
Cyprus: Official beer
was Keo, but admittedly, we drank more Carlsburg. . .
Brazil: Again, we were torn. Mike preferred Brahma, but I liked Cerpa
Bolivia: Taquina, Pacena and Huari. I liked Huari.
Italy: Peroni and Nastro Azzurro. I like Nastro, Mike too!
Tunisia: Celtia. . . can't say we had more than two of them, drank the all inclusive from the resort!
Cambodia: Angkor or Anchor. Hard to tell the difference!
Australia: Don't drink
Foster's, drink VICTORIA BITTER, aka VB
England: Yes, the English are known for there warm beer, and I didn't care for it much, but Mike drank what ever the
Jamaica: The one and only RED STRIPE!
Brunei: Yea, right. All beer has to be smuggled in from Malaysia, so mostly Tiger beer. You can have Carlsburg
if you want, or even Guiness. We opted for the familiar Asian taste of Tiger when we could. Not a good country
for us beer connoisseurs!
Malaysia: Only drank Tiger, which really isn't Malaysian, but tasted pretty good!
Drank a lot of Bintang, which we really liked, and tried some Bali Hai (for the name, basically), which was good, but like
a light beer.
