Mac OS X A few days ago, we concluded (yes, we did!) that it was cool to run Windows 3.1 on your Nokia N95 using Qemu. Of course, the Apple world couldn't stay behind, and now we have one of Apple's obsolete operating systems running on the iPhone: System 7, also using Qemu.

We didn't conclude that either. Beer tastes horrible. Ugh. Only men can drink such horrible stuff and like it! :O

Beer is awesome. Just don't drink the cheap, macro-produced crap they brew full of adjuncts like rice and corn to kill taste. I could really go for an Ayinger Ur-Weisse right about now... or a good porter, brown ale or stout. Then again, on the lager side, a Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold or some variety of Vienna lager or dunkel lager sounds good. Mmmm.

Of course, if you already think all beer is nasty, those crappy macro lagers are probably all you've drank... too bad, that's the only type of beer most people know about. Just another case where something that's clearly "best" in virtually every way gets demolished in the market (sales-wise) simply due to its higher price.

No offense, but if you want real beer, you've got to go to belgium. There you can have real beer for cheap.
If you go to Brussels, go visit the delirium pub. They have 2500 kind of beers (literally). There are beers for all tastes. From Trappists to krieks, all belgian beer taste good.
You can find some real beers in the US, but they are imported from belgium and they are damn expensive. I think you can find blue Chimay over there, but for $10 the bottle?

Yeah, I've tried the three Chimays. And they are wicked expensive, about $10 a bottle as you said. Duvel is also around here also, at a whopping $12 for a 4-pack of 11.2oz bottles (!!!). I've had all four beers, and while good, they're certainly not worth the price (and some Chimays were better than others)... but then, a short trip to Belgium to get lots of Belgian beer for a low price couldn't be too cheap either. And time would be seriously limited.

Also, this is just personal preference, but Belgian beers aren't exactly the kind I would drink very often. There's just something about them I can't point a finger at; perhaps their intense sweetness or something? Yes, they're pretty damn good, but I'm more into English and German style ales. ;)

That's rather a simplistic statement. What you ment to say was if you want a trappist or lambic style beer Belgium is the place to go. If you want a real good pilsner Belgium wouldn't make my top three list. For bitters and real ales Britain is obvioulsy the place to go. Don't get me wrong Belgium makes some awsome beers, and I drink them all the time, but it's not like they're the only place.

From Trappists to krieks

Is a very narrow and limited subsection of beers.

all belgian beer taste good.

Let's check the nationalistic pride at the door. I have had plenty of shit Belgian beers.

No way. Lithuanian beers are the way to go. Maybe not 2500 kinds, but who needs so many?

Actually, it's even simpler than that ... just don't buy beer from the States! Pretty much everywhere in the world makes good beer ... except the States. I honestly do not know how they can even call that swill "beer". I mean, come on, 2%? And 4% is considered "extra strong"?

Not that Canada's a bastion of perfect brews, but at least we have Kokanee and Alexander Keith's. Miles beyond anything that the States has. ;)
