There's a keen interest in Trappist ales in the US, and many of them are imported. I can't find a mention of the Cistercian beer you mentioned, which I think would be classified as an Abbey beer in the US beer trade, but I did trip over the fact that Cistercian monks in Northern California are now helping finance their reconstruction of a medieval monastery building through sale of a traditional style ale.

The mouse story was old when I was a child, and truthfully statistics show you're more likely to get something foreign in a bottle than in a can. Besides, the beer sterilizes it.

You probably can't go wrong with a decent, middle-of-the-road beer like Sam Adams.

Oh, no ... Warsteiner and Warsteiner Dunkel are very good (been drinking both for years!).

Spaten is better.

You've probably already had the friends over, but I would go for something light. I would say Blue Moon is light enough, but still tastes good enough if they are "real" beer drinkers. I love Fat Tire, but I know plenty of people who don't. I wouldn't go for any of the Budweiser, Miller, Coors, etc.

Michelob Amberbock, is a good smooth medium dark beer that many will like. That said, any dark beer is a good "food" beer that is easy to drink with a good mouth feel and flavor. ( this beer is dark in color like a cola)

Budwiser beer and all the rest of the urine colored beers are just beer to get drunk with and not recommended for a mixed civil gathering. That kinda beer is "good ol' boys" beer Yee ha!

When in doubt, I'd suggest either a Samuel Adams variety or New Belgium. It's hard to go wrong with Sam Adams Boston Lager or Fat Tire (yes, there are more sophisticated beers available, but Boston Lager and Fat Tire are micros with broad appeal). Have some Budweiser on hand in case the taste buds aren't used to anything other than golden lager.

When in doubt I stock my fridge with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and some Fat Tire. For my friends that drink American light beer swill I have found that they will drink Rolling Rock if I put in front of them. That way you don't need to figure out if they are a Bud Lite/Miller Lite/ Coors Lite drinker. Rolling Rock seems to appease them all.

Best thing is that all of the above beers can be found at any grocery store, Walmart and quite a few gas stations.
