Big fan of Stella. I don't care how commercial it's become, still one of my favourite beers.

When I am Germany and Austria I usually enjoy the fresh pilsners. Favorites are Heidelberger 1603, Hirter, and Schleppe.

Löwenbräu, Paulaner and Spaten are good labels to look out for. Pilsners are hard to beat. Just go to any biergarten asnd say 'ein anderer Liter von Pilsner, bitte!' and you will likely be pleased with the results.

In Reply To #1 Favourite beer: Rochefort 10 Favourite style: I love many styles, Baltic porters is one of them. Others are: Dark bocks/doppelbocks (but NOT Eisbock - too sweet), Hefe-Weissbier/Hefeweizen, Abbey ales, Scottish ales, English bitters and pale ales, stouts and porters. Good European beers are really too many to mention - but I'm afraid very few of them are Norwegian. Among the few are Aass Bock (available in the US), Ringnes Julebokk, the two Valdres Gardsbryggeri beers and the entire Nøgne Ø range. 4 Norwegian brewpubs are also reported to be good, but I haven't been to any of them yet. If you like pilseners, the Czech Republic is the place to go. "Budweiser Budvar"/Czechvar is over-hyped due to their legal battles with A-B; Staropramen, Starobrno and Kláster are much better.

In Reply To #1 The List is Endless, My Friend....There is not enough room to list them all....but if I had a gun to my head I would have to go with the following styles: Stouts from the UK/Ireland, Trappist/Abbey Ales from Belgium, Various Lagers from Germany, and Porters from Eastern Europe (haven't really had any porters from England yet).....That's the short of it!

I love all the Trappist beers especially Rochefort and Westy. I also enjoy many of the better European pilseners. I also enjoy many of the German Oktoberfest beers as well. Wow too many to even name.

In Reply To #3 Crown I am with you on this one, Stella-Artois is still a great beer even though interbrew is now marketing it as their #1... carlsberg out of denmark is always a good choice St. Bernardus Tripel of belgium is solid also
