I haven't either but I bet just like in the U.S. they have their special beers.

I think all mass produced American beers are discusting. Busch, mich, Bud, Miller... I think they all suck.

I do really like sake!

(Homer Simpson immitation)....MmmmAhhhh Sake. I agree the big comercial beers are not fit anything but maybe an industrial solvent or something. :(

What is sake? I've had it before once but never ventured to ask exactly what it is.

Sake.

I don't think there are good Asian beers. There are just imitations of crappy Western beers. I don't think there's any brewing tradition there (please correct me if I am wrong).

Sake. Rice wine. Strange, but a groovy accquired taste. Try it warm (yes, I said warm) with some sushi at a good place. It grows on you.

When in Rome...

Rice wine? Wow can you home brew it easily?

I know you can. I never have, so I wouldn't know where to start. Well, I'd guess you mash some rice and other stuff and pitch sake yeast, which you can definitely buy.

Maybe someone else here has made sake before?

Sake - rice wine
 
Sake is difficult -
but there are traditional asian rice wines which are easier.

For sake, check out Fred Eckhardt's book, Sake (U.S.A.) (available from AHA, amazon.com or many other sources, probably including your local homebrew shop).

For SaTho - thai traditional rice wine, which is far easier, check out my recipe here: SaTho Thai Rice Wine
