Boston Ale by Samuel Adams

Brewed by Samuel Adams, Boston Ale is not a very well known beer, even among drinkers of Samuel Adams, but its distinctively crisp yet smooth taste really separates it from its peers. Technically, Boston Ale is a "stock ale," which is fermented at cooler temperatures than most ales. It traces it roots to brewing in early New England. The Samuel Adams brewery is based in Boston, Massachusetts.

Pilsner Urquell

Since SABMiller purchased this Czech brewery, Pilsner Urquell isn't the best kept secret it once was, but it's still under-appreciated outside of the Czech Republic. Part of the reason is that bottled Pilsner doesn't approach draught Pilsner in quality, and the beer simply doesn't travel very well. A true Pilsner, however, is a special treat. Golden in color and topped off by a light and almost frothy head. Its taste and bouquet come from Pilsner's use of Saaz hops, a product grown in the Czech Republic.

There's nothing like a Guinness. The black beer with the creamiest head in the business, Guinness is an acquired taste for most, but once that taste is acquired, satiating it becomes a life-long passion. Its roasted barley gives it its distinctive color and taste. Though the parent company which owns Guinness is headquartered in London, Guinness was founded in Dublin, Ireland and is considered an Irish beer.

What Is India Pale Ale?

India Pale Ale is a style of beer that is characterized by high alcohol content and high hops content. Popularly known as IPA, India Pale Ale was invented by the famous British brew master George Hodgson in the 18th century. Its name derives from the fact that the beer was originally brewed for export to India, and its recipe was dictated by the fact that, back in the 1700s, the delivery time from London to India was about six months. Traditional pale ale would go bad during transit, so to prevent spoilage, Hodgson increased the alcohol and hops content.
Today's IPA is a bit different than what Hodgson created. It has less alcohol, usually about 6%, and a more fruity aroma. When dining, IPA is considered an ideal brew when eating red meat based meals. Originial artile from HERE>>>

Budweiser Trademark Myths

For the past decade or so, at any given time, the American brewer Anheuser-Bush and the Czech state-owned brewery Budejovicky Budvar have been involved in dozens of lawsuits in courts all around the world, from Australia and the Americas, to Europe and Asia, even Africa.
The subject of their dispute is the trademark regarding Budweiser, the most popular brand name of beer in the world and a brand name that both breweries claim as their own. Reportage on the dispute in the mainstream media has been poor, filled with recycled facts (as opposed to checked facts) and never presented in a context that provides the reader the information necessary to understand what the issues are and what's at stake. The blogoshere has been even worse, much worse. Anheuser-Busch is almost always portrayed as an evil, yet bumbling conglomerate giant feasting and profiting off the labors of a small, innocent, entrepreneurial brewery in a small town, in a far away place.It's time for a little truth.
