So, How many?

As for beers, have you tried the Mallee Bull from Mildura brewing, and though I hate to say it, this brewery would have to be my favorite producer at the moment ( Bridge Road Brewers Beechworth - Brewery )...I know, I know he's a Victorian, still it's bloody good beer.

Himzo.

I think one of my favorite Belgian beers is Urthel Hop-It, if you can find it. The one that I had was a 2003 and I drank it earlier this year. Fantastic stuff. I also had a bottle from Lithuania called Žaibo Extra Stout Beer. Not a stout. Just strong and good. Other than that, I'll second that Bell's Two-Hearted is great, as is their Oberon. I also like Three Floyd's Robert The Bruce from Indiana. Get your hands on some Lagunitas beer, if you can. Any of it is good.

Although we have a small local micro-brewery that creates a passable brew, I second Drake's recommendation of Black Butte Porter as one of my favorite beers; although Alaskan Amber runs a close second, at least for quanity consumed. Now if only Costco sold Black Butte Porter. But as for keeping all the empties...that's more space than I would care to commit.

To quote Ben Franklin: "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Thanks for the recomendations.

For my plan to drink a beer from every country where someone has build a pizza oven I started on American beers. These are not too common in Aus apart from the mass produced beers the following beers. There were only beers from 3 breweries available and this was the selection I chose.

Flying dog IPA from Frederick, Maryland
Sameul Adams Lager from Boston
Rouge Ale from Newport, Oregon.

To celebrate the keystone placing yesterday I opened the lager and the IPA and the IPA was especially nice.

Can you get Swiss beer? Great idea by the way!

This is probably the most well-known (i.e. the one you'd most likely to actually get hold of):
Produkte - Original | Feldschlösschen

But this ones my favourite - from a small local brewery:

Let me know if you do get hold of a Swiss beer... I'd be really pleased.

Sarah,

That is not a beer that I have seen in Aus but one exceptional Canadian beer that we do get here is Trois Pistoles which is brewed by Unibroue. This is a dark Belgian style beer that is 9% and comes in large bottles so I had better be carefull with this one.

I have a bottle at home that I will open one afternoon after the building and during the clear up. That way the bricks will be laid straight.

Paul
