    Irish beer. Although Canadian and Belgian beers are my all-time favorites.

    Re: German or Irish Beer?

    Well, my favourite beer has always been Guinness, so I'd say Irish. I like a lot of German and Austrian beers too, though. Erdinger and Lowenbrau are great.

    Re: German or Irish Beer?

    I'll have one of each, please.

    Seriously, though, there are many fine English, Czech, and Belgian brews that should not be overlooked. And, dare I say it, America also puts out some damn good beers as well. Not the commercialized, mass-produced, watered-down crap, but real fine quality lagers, ales, and stouts. You just have to know where to look.

    I do like Irish stout, like Guiness, Murphys and Beamish, but for me German Beer is the best.I also like some regional Bitters from my own country.

    Holy Shit! I forgot to mention Czech beers.

    Sam Adams is a good American brew.

    You're not just saying that because you happen to be German? J/K

    Belgian Beer tastes good, like Grimbergen and Leffe, but it tastes to sweet for a "real" Beer. Same goes for others.

    Ah, yes, the good old Reinheitsgebot!

    But beer is not something that can really be defined by a specific ethnicity. There are, of course, many different ways to brew beer to many different effects. Beer itself is sort of a catch-all term that includes, more specifically, lagers, stouts, reds, wheats, porters, pilseners, etc. Both Ireland and Germany (and just about every other beer-loving nation) deal in all of these.

    Boy, I'm sure making this complicated, ain't I?

    To the question "German or Irish Beer?", I must answer "Yes."

    There's a so-called "microbrewery" where I live called The Maumee Bay Brewing Co. They produce several beers of various types that I think are worth entering in any "World Beer Contest".

    Re: German or Irish Beer?

    I like English bitters, Belgian white beers, to an extent Guinness. For whatever reason, lagers quickly make me nauseous.

    I'm not really a big beer nerd.

    Seems ridiculous to have a blanket preference for "Irish" vs "German" vs "Mongoslavistanian" as there are many types of beers within each country.
