@Walter Hinteler,
The problem with user driven charts like this is that they tend to be heavily weighted in America's favour. proper beer only really kicked off in America in the last twenty odd years while Europe has a very long brewing history. On top of that, CAMRA was founded in 1971 and pretty much hit the ground running.

Now there are some very good/excellent beers coming out of American independent breweries, but in view of the above I can't see that 71 of the top 100 breweries would be located in America, leaving the rest of the world with 29 between them. It just doesn't add up.

@glitterbag,
My dad would bring some bottles of Carling Black Label home once in a while. A forgotten name.

@panzade,
Oh! As a punishment? What did you do wrong?
Stateside, it went downhill by the early ‘80s but according to Wiki in the ‘80s in the U.K. it was the most popular beer. I’m sure they had a different recipe.

@Ragman,
Popular with bloody idiots. When people first start going out to the pub they order what they've heard of. It doesn't mean it's any good it just means it's been advertised a lot.

Having said that the adverts were pretty good.

@izzythepush,
In the 60', you only could get it bottled in England (and not in Scotland) - it was called just "Carling" in those days.
They run adverts over adverts in tv, papers and magazines. Thus it became really popular from 1970 onward - and you could get it in pubs (and Scotland), too.

@Walter Hinteler,
I'll drink it if that's all there is, but it's not a beer of choice.

When I lived in Newcastle we used to drink this.

I thought the Scots drank heavy.

@izzythepush,
McEwans was my favourite beer when I was in Scotland (and still drinking).

@Walter Hinteler,
I can't get scotch down here, the closest I can get is this, which is a bit pokier.

@mismi,
Stronger. Got a bit of a poke to it.

I thought purple haze was a variety of cannabis.

@mismi,
There's a company called Flavourly, a bit of a hipster organisation that posts craft beers to its members. The beer is very good, but nothing special and a bit overpriced for my liking.

However every three months or so they need to clear out their old stock and sell it off cheap about a £1 a can. Then I buy it.

I much prefer my local beer shop, they just sell beer and a bit of cider.

I'll look out for your Purple Haze when I'm next there, the other sort will have to wait until I'm back in Amsterdam.

@izzythepush,
Why A South Korean Brewery Moved To California To Make Korean Beer
Quote:
Booth launched in Seoul in 2013 after husband and wife team Sunghoo Yang, a former investment analyst, and Heeyoon Kim, a former doctor, wanted to help correct the dearth of craft beer in South Korea. Part of their impetus was an article that ran a few years prior in The Economist. "Brewing remains just about the only useful activity at which North Korea beats the South," the article concluded, while declaring North Korea's government-brewed Taedonggang as more memorable than South Korea's beer offerings.

Isn't it spelled Roquefort and isn't that just moldy cheese?

I've actually pounded Everclear before, relax. I have a high tolerance, besides I at first bluffed. If you must know I had bet the U.S team would beat Portugal.

It's been five years since he posted this not so humble brag. And he's never been back since then. Maybe the Everclear did him in?
