I have a partial list from their website, but not all of them...

Brewed with ingredients from every continet (crystallized ginger from Australia, water from Antarctica, basmati rice from Asia, etc...)

I know they also used yeast from Belgium, so that would cover Europe.

Heineken, I'll pass on it every time. Give me an ice cold Yuengling or LaBatt Blue

I have to admit I'm a bit of a beer snob. When offered either water or a domestic, mass-produced beer like Miller Lite, Bud, Coors, et cetera, I'll take the water. I will drink Amber Bock, Michelob Black and Tan and Killian's, but if the beer is in the "mass produced for the NASCAR fan's taste" vein, I'd just as soon drink something else.

I have to agree Phinz, most domestic beers aren't worth buying or even taking for free. I don't drink much but when I do I prefer Woodchuck Cider or Heineken.

wow, what varying tastes we have, snobs or not.

woodchuck cider is terrible imo. applejack is only slightlt better.
s-n-s, if you get the chance, try magner's or bullmer's cider.

and i think the heineken sold in america is made from petrochemicals.

still, beer is beer.

I don't drink Malternatives either, like "ciders."

I also must add: I don't drink beers that come in green bottles. They always smell like a skunk to me. Heineken, Grolsch, Moosehead, et al.

The "skunk" smell isn't just relegated to green bottled beer.

And it dissipates in a minute or so. It's just a product of fermentation - & a better beer. You'll never find a Budweiser with that whiff - green bottle or not.

Ahh Malternatives. I'm not a big fan either, although I believe that the Ciders Buckytom recommended are actual Cider, not filtered malt alcohol flavored with syrups.

As for the skunking, there's a good reason for that - it's caused by a chemical compound causing it that is nearly identical to skunk spray. It's created when ultraviolet light reacts with the hop compounds in beer.

Brown bottles filter the light best, then green, then clear. No bottle is foolproof, and if you buy the sixer sitting on the shelf of the beerstore freezer, right in front of the cooler light, odds are it'll be skunked.

Of course, if you buy beer by the sealed case, this is less of an issue.
