why do they serve beer cold in america?
so you can distinguish it from urine. ha ha

but they serve german beer kalt too. german beer is much better of course, no preservatives, all natural, american beer would never sell. it's "pisswasser" for sure.

You people have not tasted, and do not KNOW what bad beer IS, until you have sampled the ...'beer' down here! It is the most crappy of the crapulous. The non-craft ones at least. There's one local one called 'Beez-kneez' which is ok.
However, I do love me nice cold Bud, or Millers. I find them a lot crisper than the 'beer' down here.
Having said that, nothing like a nice cold Becks!

If ever you visit Upsidedownland, do not be persuaded to try Hahn (NSW) or anything from Coopers (Sth.Aus.). I did once. Never have fully recovered.

Er, to get back to topic..Bud and Miller are usually available at larger liquor stores here. I wish Bud Lite was available too, haven't seen it yet.

Wetherspoons offered an amber ale from Oregon called Wild Blue Yonder in their recent beer festival, it's not a bad pint.

My guess is because they all suck and no one around the world wants to drink them...the only reason anyone here (myself included) drinks them is to get drunk cheap.

You can find bud and miller in Australia if you look hard enough, not very popular however, so only the larger stores and pubs usually stock it.
Albion, to answer the quesiton for you, Stella Artois is very widley available and popular in australia, most city pubs (maybe not so much in the country) will have it either on tap or in Bottles.
I love Kronenburgh and drink it all the time when i can, while not as freely available as Stella I never seem to have too much trouble getting it (In Brisbane Anyway).

You can easily get the big brand American beers easily in Canada.
But they suck even in comparison to our sucky big brand beers.

Most people in Europe haven't the slightest clue to the American beer scene. When I have friends and relatives from Europe over here, the first thing they want to do is go to the beer store and stand agog at the aisles upon aisles of American beer.

The sheer number of styles multiplied by the dozens of breweries making each style is unequaled anywhere in Europe.

Unequaled to anywhere in Europe? Really now. Certainly hasn't been my experience, well, anywhere in Europe!

I have a Budweiser or two most every Friday night. Other than that, not too many american beers available here.
