California, eh? Well, I don't know about that place. And I been there thrice. The way you worded that makes it sound like they make the best beer in America. Solid stuff? Generally beers are either lagers or ales. Then ya got yer malt liquors, which are also might fine, might fine.

Here's me enjoying a BA Johnson from Sawdust City.

Its all subjective and everyone has their own tastes and preferences. Have been to 25 or so breweries 12 states (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Minnesota, New York, and Missouri). My preference is for the stronger ales (9.0% ABV or greater and at least 70 IBU). However, have developed a taste for the German varietals lately such as Dunkelweizen, Bock, Maibock, Oktoberfest, etc. What separates one from another is their ability to make more than one style and does their product not have the stale almond flavor in the back. When brewers get lazy and either do not clean their equipment or crank up the yeast.. that is when you get the off taste. Anyways, that is my 2 cents.

I drink LEZAJSK, a lager from Poland.

And always in bottles till they unfortunately switched to cans mid-summer of 2023. Not the same taste even if you pour it into a stein.

Of course I am in Europe often, so I know good beer. Local beers only if I am desperate.

AKA 1 pint.

1 US pint is only 473 ml

tallboys usually come in either 473ml or 500ml at the LCBO

568ml is 20% larger than the previously tallest tallboy

making Amsterdam the lowest price by volume at the LCBO, even tho it's an excellent Dutch Blonde Lager

hence the value pick designation

They told me everything was bigger in America.

Yet the gallons are a litre short!

I used to drink local beers but ever since going to Europe many years ago, I started drinking imported beer and always in glass bottles. None of this aluminum can BS. The best parts is, when doing the math, the 500 ml bottles of European beer are no more expensive for what I call real beer.

I love the term "craft beer" that North America invented. In Europe, they just call it "beer".  😝
