You don't know what you are talking about when it comes to beers made in the USA. You probably are familiar with butwiper, and spoors beers, and maybe chiller or feingold, but what about the finer American beers such as Anchor Steam, Ommegang, Henepin, Pete's Wicked Ale and on an on they go? You think these are week, I invite you to come a share a few with me any time you are in my neck of the woods. Just a for instance - Ommegang is 8%. Just a bit stronger and it would be a wine not an ale. Try one sometime, then after that have a second, then tell me how you feel.Garand said:By the way, I served MY country, for 28 years not 20.

Unlike the actors that play him, Duff Man never dies.
Can't get enough of that duff
A lot of our good beers here are made by microbreweries and you won't find them in most grocery stores and not all liquor stores either. We used to have one calle "Red Wolf" that was 7%, but I guess the Budswillers couldn't handle it and it didn't sell well enough to stock it I guess.Garand said:During my years in the Canadian Army , I had the opportunity to visit many states and I can honestly say that I never seen an american beer at 8%. Is that something that the hillbillies in the mountains produce? A good beer up here is 7%, for the girlie-men we produce a 5.5% beer, anything less is for those people that swing in the opposite direction.
