The Vatican makes the best beer. It's infallible.

Since I live and brew in the US the answer is obvious isn't it?

Yeah, but a lot of people don't know that the Vatican's a dictatorship. There is no freedom of religion.

i'm gonna go with the rest of the world on this one. there are some great craft beers out there, but for my taste they are few and far between. i'd prefer a good belgian ale or german weisse-bier any time.

and i, also, could drink strong belgian ales every day...and have for months at a time

Since the craft beer revolution, America has begun to do what we do best- grassroots innovation. Few countries glorify and support the grassroots innovator like America does, it's part of our culture.

With that said though, Americans tend to go off in their own directions and it seems like keeping us on a direct path is rather like herding cats. So I guess there are more Americans capable of producing awesome and great beers than any other nationality. However, how can we ever make a German beer as good as Germany?

Because we are a melting pot, we are largely a nation of copycats when it comes to old world traditions. Aviation, computers, and copiers? Sure, we're in the top few in terms of new designs and cutting edge technology. But our nation's prime has been coming about during these innovations. Germany's prime came about during the era of beer. They made it what it is and the original will always be the original. There is no comparison.

If we're talking about the best beer available in the USA (and if price is part of the equation), then clearly the USA wins: there is better beer, more reasonably priced available from here than from elsewhere.

Of course, the same is probably true in Germany, in England, in Belgium, etc.

Do you really think the US industry can compete against the UK, Belgium and the rest of Europe?

Are you asking me? To clarify, what I meant is that the local beer is generally going to be the best and the best bargain, if we're talking about a place with a wide variety of quality beers. So, if you live in the USA, USA beers are probably your best bet overall. If you live in Belgium, then ditto for Belgian beers, etc.

If you live in Italy, then just enjoy the wine and the scenery.
