Tonight I feel like talking a bit about beers :) ! I’ve heard that the most famous one in the US is Budweiser, in China it’s Tsing Tao, in Ireland it’s (of course) Guinness, and so on and so forth. But do you know which beer we drink here in France ;) ? Well if you don’t you’ll know soon (and it may save your life if you plan to have a trip in France someday because you will definitely not find ant Bud around here :) ). Of course, everything down this line is, as usual, MY view on things and some other frenchy may thing otherwise but I do believe i’m not far from truth ;)

Well, first of all there’s the kind of beer you’ll find cheap almost everywhere. You know what kind of beer I’m talking about : the ones you drink because they are cool and cheap but don’t really taste fantastic :

Kronenbourg Beer Here is the Kronenbourg. Certainly the best selling beer in France (at least, that's what wikipedia says, so if wikipedia agrees with me...that must be true :D ). You'll find this one everywhere and cheap, but do not expect a really tasty beer ;) Oh by the way, that's a French beer (honestly, before reading the wikipedia page about it I'd have said it was a german beer :D That’s quite a cliché we have in France : we believe that almost every beers are from Germany or Belgium and that you can guess only knowing how the name sounds ;) )

Heineken Beer The next ont you'll find almost everywhere two is the Heineken. Damn, one again I was wrong thinking this was a german beer : it's from the Netherlands (I'm definitely learning things tonight !). Same profile as the Kro : cheap :)

Knowing those two you're sure know at least one beer in every French bar you'll go :) But if i were you, I'd rather try one of the followings :

1664 Beer The 1664, quite cheap two, but (according to me) just a bit tastier than the previous ones :) (again wikipedia learns me something : French beer, I'd have said Belgium :) ) It's taste is quite original, so either you like it, or you hate it, you've been warned, don't go complaining if you've bought it and disliked it ;)

Bavaria 86 Beer The well known 86 (real name Bavaria 86, usual name : 8 pause 6 ). Why is this one well known ? Long story short : the cheapest with so much alcohol in it ;) (That's why you'll mainly see it in the hands of bums or young people wanting to get hot before the party ). Anyhow it's worth trying, its taste is somehow special (and quite good actually) :)

Now we’re done with the "common stuff", let's introduce some more !

The Leffe (this one is from Belgium !) is a very common one. I’d say it’s the most common if you don’t want a classical kro or heineken ;) ! I personally really like this one :)

The Peleforth is quite known two (and that’s the first non-blond beer in this post ;) It was high time). Even though I don’t like this one, it’s quite popular in France.

The Grimbergen (again from Belgium ;) ) which is quite the same “spirit” as the Leffe, but the taste is way softer. I do like this one :p

The Guinness, my favorite !! The original Irish dry stout ! Damn tasty ^^ ! But quite expensive though, and you won't find it everywhere :( (it's often replaced by the Beamish which is a good beer, but not a Guinness )

With all those you know what is mainly sold in France :) I know I’ve been quite fast in the end, sorry about that, I may modify this article a bit latter to add the pictures lacking and some more text :)

Anyhow do not hesitate to add a comment saying which country you are from and which beer you like !

I’ll just end this post with some more beers you may enjoy : Ch’ti (from France), Delirium Tremens (from Belgium as far as I know), “Pecheresse” (sounds like a French one to me ), 33 export (no idea :) ), Chimay (great one from Belgium, but watch out it’s 9% ;) ), …
