American Craft Beers?

It is pretty obvious by my beer choices that I am more of a European style beer lover. With the exception of a few American beers I favor primarily British and German beers. For Christmas I received an American Craft Been Hamper. Sounds exciting, but frankly most of the beers have a funny fruity taste or some other obscure taste that does not resonate well with me. I’m not even saying they are bad beers but for me you start with Fuller’s ESB as the perfect pint and then go from there. Currently my top five beers are:

  • Fuller’s ESB
  • Old Speckled Hen
  • Shiner Bock
  • Magners Cider
  • Old Peculier

Not one craft beer there. Maybe next year.
