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.


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.

Nope, especially since you'll rarely, if ever, find them outside of the locale they're brewed in, and even more rarely up in Canada. But every beer brand I've tried while travelling through the States has been horrible in comparison to Kamloops Brewery, Columbia Brewery, or (whatever Keith's brewery is called) beers. And all those malt beverages are just plain gross.

But, that could be my bias toward IPA/lagers coming out, since I also can't stand most of the European beers. With the exception of Heinecken and Beck's. The Asian beers like Tsing Tao and another one I can't recall the name too, are much more to my liking.
