I like Anchor Steam……….but I don't drink enough beer to know what is really good.
Boom if you like Anchor then you do in fact know what’s really good

Last year, I've tried the first couple of beers I actually like to drink. But wait for it...

they were fruit beers.

Strawberry or raspberry beers.

This stuff is strong so I've been mixing it with an IPA and making a black and tan.

@tsarstepan,
Tsar I’m finding it very difficult to cultivate the flavored kind but we must try them all mustn’t we. I will Fwd your post to my excellent No. 2 Son who has a very superior palate for his opinion and perhaps on his next visit to my Nether Region he will bring one

The original poster got it right, Pislner Urquell is the best.

In Prague you can buy it by the litre. If you can't get Urquell try proper Budweiser, also Czech.

@izzythepush,
Izzy after about 45 years Tasting the Brews I’d have to agree that Pilsner Urquell is a very likely candidate

@dalehileman,
There's something about Prague that makes it acceptable to down litres of the stuff at 10am on a cold Wednesday morning in late October. Maybe it's the clock.

Kirin’s Frozen Foam Beer Looks a Lot Like Soft-Serve

I can't watch the video at work but as soon as I get home I'll give it a watch.

To directly answer the question, I don't feel qualified to say what beer is the best in the world because I tend to drink what I know and can afford. I have tried many that is easily (and not so easily) found.

I've not traveled too extensively so exposure to all tasty beer brands and types is a little limited but Boston, NYC and No. Va-Wash DC haveexposed to me some harder to get varieties. I plan on visiting Switzerland Italy and Germany at some point in the next year depending on my tiny budget.

I've often had and liked UK beer called Old Speckled Hen (Green King-Moorland Brewery). Not exceptional but decent.

I plan on trying Pliny The Younger, an American Double (11% alcohol not 5.2%) IPA from Calif. There is an IPA with 8% alcohol, called the Elder I'll try too. These are most highly rated by the beer lovers in Beer Advocate blog.

I've experienced a few Hefeweisens I've liked and some Belgian Lambics. Lambics aren't exactly like beer - it's sort of a fermented beer-cidery tasting beverage that uses wild yeasts - less controlled and interesting change.

For years I've liked Sam Adams various brews the most, as a rule. Generally, I like some of the Sierra Nevada beers. Mostly I like what are called craft beers (or what I used to know as micro-brews). My preference of beer types these days are Belgian (either white or wheat) and IPAs. The most I ever drink in an evening these days is 2 beers.

I more prefer red wines but that depends on with whom I'm sharing a table and what I'm serving. As for wines, I love Italian reds as well as Californian reds and those from Pacific Northwest.

Recently I discovered a tasty beer Belgian-Style Wheat beer called Shock Top. It's unfiltered and is flavored (subtle) with citrus peels and coriander spice.
Shock Top Belgian White won gold and bronze medals in the Belgian Wit (White) category at the 2006 and 2007 North American Beer Awards.

{Edit: Mercy, I just discovered A-Bush ...cringe. Budweiser makes Shock Top in Ft. Collins Co micro-brewery. Hopefully, it's only their money end they share.}

Speaking of buds, over time, my taste buds tired of most flavored beers about 12 yrs ago. These days for me it should only a hint of a spice flavor, if it is flavored at all. Shock Top have 4 other flavors in addition. Raspberry Wheat, Wheat IPA, Pumpkin Wheat and Shock Top Lemon Shandy. I have as yet to try the others so I've no comment yet. Apparently, they had a launch of the Pumpkin Wheat called Shocktoberfest tasting event in Boston.

@Ragman,
Oops! I forgot one: I just remebered this excellent craft beer (made in NH) called Smuttynose Barleywine Style Ale (Big Beer Series).

I have to try this one again as it's been more than 10 yrs since last time I tasted one of their older-styled beers.
The beer lovers love it a lot, though.

In Belgium, this beer is originally called 'Floris', and you get it additionally in mango, apple, chocolate, nuts (cherry stones), passion fruit, honey, cactus ....

@Walter Hinteler,
I've been with the missus and some (A2K) friends to a brauhaus (pub brewery, which had been a local brewery before) in the eastern part of the Harz mountains.

http://i43.tinypic.com/ix818w.jpg
One of their beers, "Pubarschknall", (a top-fermented brown beer) translates to fart-arse-bang or (officially) "explosive fart"....

@Walter Hinteler,
I prefer fruit wines to fruit beers. I'm about to bottle some cherry wine I took off my tree last year.
