drink beer.......the germans had it right.....lager rules! here in the Southwest USA you drink beer, and lots of them. I like ale but its kind of like drinking beer and having dessert. dont get me wrong I like the belgians and the US micros, but prefer a good mai-bock, dopplebock or smoked lager. many ales are just to sweet and high in alcohol to sit in the shade and drink all day.
prost to all,
