You don’t need to take a trip to Europe – or Epcot, for that matter – to get a taste of the beers of the world. We’ve gone through the trouble to list one the best economic beers representing every major country around the world that typifies them best. It’s a beer tour that’ll fit any budget.
Look no further than the oldest brewery in America, Yuengling. A crisp, tasty lager cheap enough for frat boys and good enough for enthusiasts.
Labatt Blue is the quintessential Canadian lager. Perfect for rowdy hockey-watching.
You just can’t beat Dos Equis on their marketing alone. This lager is light and straight-forward but still tasty.
Fuller’s London Pride’s a bargain buy that gives you that slightly bitter taste of England with this English Pale Ale offering.
Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot is a nice barley wine that beckons to the great Scots and is heavy on the alcohol while light on the wallet.
Just to be different, we’ll say Killian’s Irish Red. Not a bad price and gives the sharp, distinct hoppy bitterness of an Irish red. And you thought we were going to say Guinness…
“From Belgium with Pride” is their motto. This low-end, faux-chic lager is exceptionally crisp and smooth from the draft and a bit more on the bitter side in the bottle.
Peroni Nastro Azzuro, or just Peroni, has a distinct hint of sourness to it that gives a real taste of Italy’s vision for beer. Keep in mind that they’re more about the wine, though.
Tsingtao couldn’t be anything but Chinese. It’s a simple lager that’s refreshing and light.
Go no further than Kirin Ichiban, the go-to Japanese lager. Very similar in flavor and body to American lagers.
We’re not going Fosters here, as you might have tried to guess. Instead we say the Sheaf Stout, a thick, sweet concoction that beckons to Australia’s burgeoning stout affinity.
