What's the best beer in the world?
My favorite is Westvleteren 12...it's a 10.2% alc Trappist brew from West Flanders(Belgium). It can only be purchased at the St Sixtus abbey. There is a cafe next to the abbey where you can drink any of their three varieties, but if you want to buy bottles to go without a reservation you can only purchase the Blond(6 per person). The monks have a "beer phone" for reservations which is nearly always busy that you have to call at leat 2 wks ahead of time if you want to purchase the 8 or 12(max 1 or 2 cases). They very much want to preserve their way of life which is why production is so limited. Matter of fact, they don't even put labels on their bottles so more people don't discover this amazing beer.
Although this one is hard to find, selections from several of the other 6 Trappist breweries can be found at Total Wine or in liquor stores with a good selection.
The road to get there is actually a series of narrow tractor trails through the fields. Here's some pics from the abbey and cafe:

I drink it all summer long. I honestly cannot tell the difference between it and Coors light. Not to mention its $15 for a 30pk. Sometimes its free if you forget its under the carriage

I buy busch when other people are going to drink it usually. No one really complains about it and its cheap. Unfortunatley with busch, if I dont drink enough of it I get a headache and if I drink too much I get the shitz

If you guys can get ahold of TYSKIE beer. I would suggest grabbing a case. and it has a great taste to it and not filling at all, has a very smooth taste. Everyone ive introduced it to loves it. You can get a 20 pack of 16oz bottle for about 19 dollars. But beware it is a strong beer. When i did the math i think 1 tyskie is almost 3 miller lites.
You Chicago boys shouldnt have a problem finding Tyskie its all over chi town. It's personnally my favorite beer. (That i've had) My brother has been to Germany and he said their beer is nothing short of incredible comapred to ours.
