I understand that there are many variations on bear. I know that beers from various places in Europe have amazing beers. But whatever variety is presented, it has alcohol in it and I just can't deal with that. That being the case, I have no business weighing in on this subject. I don't like the flavor, or the feeling I got from drinking alcoholic beverages.
The nuances of beers, and wines fascinates me though.

So, I;m going to start a thread about non-alcoholic beers, such as root beer, birch beer, etc. feel free to take a look and offer your input.

I've always avoided places that count and advertise the number of beers that they have on tap.

Depending on the bar or saloon, the kegs might be a good distance away from the tap, and unless you get a professional bartender that knows how much beer to pour off that's been sitting in the lines between the two, the first several pours of one of those dozens of beers that rarely get ordered have been sitting in the lines and have gone sour or stinky.

It's often a good policy to drink what is frwquently being poured.

Chief Longwind of the North, here in Europe, there is amazing alcohol free beer, that has all the taste none of the buzz. It is lovely, I prefer störtebeker.

Otherwise I am trapist or Schwartz beir person.

Our favorite is brewed at Racquette River Brewery in Tupper Lake NY in the Adirondack Mountains. Other than that we will have an occasional Sam Adams Lager.

I did try two new (to me) beers this summer. Both are IPA's and the tastes were what I would describe as dry and crisp.
Bell's Two Hearted from the UP Michigan
Deschutes Fresh Squeezed from Bend Oregon.
These were drank far enough apart from each other, so I can't say I prefer one over the other. Both were pleasant.

My preferred NA beer is Clausthaler Classic in the green bottle, import from Germany. It's a good thirst quencher on a hot day and tastes like real beer.

Very true.

The other local pub near here only has 2 beers on tap, and the kegs are right under the tap system. Coors Light and LaBatt's Blue, so they're pretty fresh.

A friend of mine has a keg in his fridge in his garage, and the tap is on the outside of the fridge. He usually has Yuengling (a lager) in it. Nothing beats free, fresh, and properly poured beer. Ha.

The guy who supplies me with abalone helped someone with his start up brewery awhile back. The owner never forgot his help and today he gets free beer for life. That brewery is Lagunistas.
