I prefer Kronenbourg when ordering in a pub. Or Hogaarten if I feel like wheat beer.

The best beers in Austria are Stiegl and Goesser. In Munich I am partial to Paulaner and Augustiner.

I know the Czech Rep. isnt on your list but everyone who is in Prague should order GABRINUS. Probably the best beer in Europe. It is 12% but tastes awesome and is only about 40 cents a bottle.

Belgium has the worlds best beer hands down.
Brussels has the Delirium Cafe at which you can choose between over 2000 beers. 1000 of which are Belgian.
My favorite Belgian brewery is Cantillon. Located in Brussels just outside the city center. for 6 euro you get a self guided tour at the end of which you get to try six of their delicious beers.
Other great beers include, Duvel, Orval, Westmalle, Rochfort, A'Chouffe, Fantome, Saison Dupont, and hundreds more.
Really, I can tell you everything you ever want to know about Belgian and American beer. Just say the word and my vaste knowledge will be yours

New strategy: ask a hot chick if she wants a beer and order tow of what she wants. Can't go wrong there!

BLASPHEMY!

I agree that not all beers are great, but Europe rules for good beer! I reccommend Czech, German and Belgian beers. I wasn't a big fan of beer untill I spend a few months in Poland about 6 summers ago and I lived on beer. I still enjoy some brews better then others, but it's just a matter of findine one that appeals to your taste.

I'm almost afraid to ask what beers other then Heineken you've tasted...

There are so many different styles and flavors of beer to be had that I guarente could find something you could enjoy.
The reason most people don't like beer is because they have only been exposed to bad beer. Heiniken, corona, bud, stella, peroni, becks, carling, all that stuff is garbage.

try some Fantome Saison, or Rogue's Dead Guy Ale then tell me you don't like beer!
