[QUOTE="Macwizard;1216363"]Victoria B.C. Has lots of fine craft brewers. Even one called Canoe with moorage connected with the pub. Good food better beer right downtown in the city. There is probably 6 or 7 brewery's within walking distance of the dock]

Re: Life is GOOD! Local beer?

Portland, Maine's Allagash is amazing, and with affordable, transient, waterfront moorings and slips you can stay until you've had your fill.

I was back in the USA last year for the first time in many years and the craft brew explosion was amazing. I homebrew so I was like a kid in a candy store. We tried dozens of different brews.

Here in Central America craft brewing is just starting to creep in...pretty slim pickings in most of CA for good beer.

Currently in Bocas del Toro Panama and you can chose from a surprisingly good selection of Belgian beers in some of the shops here and some other imports too.

Recently in Panama City and discovered Rana Dorada...a craft brew pub serving several of their own very tasty brews.

Also visited Brew Revolution in El Tunco, El Salvador on our road trip back to Panama. Tasty craft brew and Hotel Mopelia right next door stocks a wide range of imports.

Once you pay the deposit on the bottle, the ale is $12 a refill, cheaper than a six-pack. Life is good. At my favorite bar, at Southwestern Yacht Club, the only yellow fizzy beer left is the Miller Light. Everything else is real beer.
Gee - Only 86? Denmark has over 400 microbreweries. It has become a tourist attraction. People come from all over the world to spend a week visiting the breweries.

Although I've tried I haven't made it through them all

yet

Re: Life is GOOD! Local beer?

Well,

If you decide to drink a beer other than Guinness, I recommend a Vanilla Java Porter from Atwater brewery in Detroit. If you ever get a chance to drink one, your life will never be the same. Another lovely brew is Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Great Lakes Brewery in Cleveland.

One good beer deserves another...

Many years ago I used to hang out at a bar in Oakland that had 365 different beers, all in the 20 oz. plus bottles. They had a sweet deal for serious booze hounds. If you drank one of each brand of beer (they gave you the coaster for your collection), you got to have one of each for free. The catch was it had to happen in one calendar year. Saw lots of people spend a lot of money and get really hammered trying to make it! I'll never forget the night my buddy still had over twenty to go, and had to get it done by midnight! He didn't make it....
