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.

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. ;)

$10? Oh, that's reasonable... I think I've lived in Singapore for waayyyyy too long. (I was once bragging to friends back home on how I found a place that sells pints for S$7.50 - half of what I normally pay for it - they couldn't understand my enthusiasm)

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.

I'm not from belgium BTW.
I just don't know any place in the world with that many different beers and it is not a matter of taste. If you like british beer, you should check the hommelbier from belgium.
I am not being nationalistic at all (it is not even my country) and I'm not the only one who think belgian beers are the best. It's not a matter of taste. Look at what wikipedia think of belgian beers:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belgian_beer
"Belgian beer comprises the most diverse national collection of quality beer in the world"
It's cold numbers. Nowhere in the world can you find a pub with 2500 diffeent beers but in Belgium. Belgium has more english-style beers than england itself and most of them taste better than english 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. ;)

I know this popular opinion, but it is also inaccurate. There are a fair few breweries in the States that do a good beer. Quality beer brewing has seen something of a resurgence in the US over that past few years.
I mean, come on, 2%?

Where? I don't think any State has the limit set below 3.2% And even in states that have those limits they don't apply to what can be bought in liqueur stores.

Kokanee and Alexander Keith's. Miles beyond anything that the States has.

I serious recommend you take a second look at US breweries. There are plenty of them that can easily give Keith's a good run for its money.

You don't know US microbrews too well do ya?

http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Ratings-Top50.asp

Just looking at the top five, 1 Belgium, 1 Sweedish, and 3 American. Those 3 American are 13%, 14%, and 29% (Barley Wine).

Lets now argue about how unrepresentitive that site is. ;)

BTW: My favorite beer is Belgium, but over all prefer British.
