Slappy, I'm partial to dark beer and german beer
has the purest ingredients for it (german FDA regulated).
Also "Weissbier" is quite good from a small region in
Bavaria called Weihnstephan, a religious compound where
monks used to brew it. Name brands would be "Paulaner"
I agree though that micro brews are better than the
commercial ones. We have a "Karl Strauss Brewery"
that serves excellent beer.
The Swiss have no clue about beer, they're good in
producing chocolates, period.
