2. SAN MIGUEL PALE PILSEN - Philippines
This golden brew is said to have been “nourishing Filipino friendships for over 100 years.”
3. KING FISHER - India
It’s Indian, so you know it’s going to be light, letting you slug it back while piling in the spicy curry. Perfect with hot food or on its own on a hot day.
4. RED STRIPE - Jamaica
Does barley grow in Jamaica? Ya mon, it does. Rich, almost fruity. A great use of Bob & Doug’s empties from the ’80s.
5. NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE - England
Heavier because it’s a brown ale, iced bottles of this classic will keep your purist Brit friends happy.
6. ANCHOR STEAM BEER - San Francisco
Served frigidly cold it is refreshing, with a light, yet slightly bitter taste. Steam was a 19th century nickname for beer brewed on the west coast of the U.S. (just a little trivia).
7. LÖWENBRÄU - Germany
Great green bottle taste: fresh and almost sturdy. Would go great with a brat! FYI: Beer turns skunky when bright light strikes the hops, which is more likely to happen if the bottle is clear or green. Grab cases that are further in on the shelf or cooler.
8. HOEGAARDEN - Belgium
Known as “the great white beer” this milky brew gets its colour from a second fermentation, and its flavour from wheat, coriander and curacao orange peels. If beer could be a dessert, this would be it.
9. TSINGTAO - China
Tastes clean and clear. Light, crisp and communist!
10. UNTOUCHABLE - San Francisco
This mob themed beer is heavy on the hops making it almost fruity tasting and definitely unique. After a six, the eyes start to follow you…�
