IBA: Best Banquet Brew


The International Brew Awards must go on but not before announcing the winner of “Best Go to Brew Abroad.” The nominees were Carlsberg, Heineken, Tiger, Budweiser, and Corona.

And the winner is….


This was a complete shock for me as I don’t particularly like Carlsberg. What was more surprising was that my choice, Corona, didn’t receive a single vote.

Our next category is Best Banquet Brew.

Forget the snooty Europeans and their uppity beers. This is America. We enjoy our banquet beer.

What is a banquet beer? According to legend (Google) Adolf Coors would throw banquets for miners coming to town as a brief respite from the grinds of mining life. According to me, a banquet beer is the everyday beer that gets the job done.

It goes well with a burger, particularly a butter burger, like so. (Side note: if you’re looking for the best burgers in America, look no further than to this pleasant man’s blog on the subject.)

Without wasting your time any further, here are the nominees for Best Banquet Brew.

(Coors Original from which this category gets its name is not included. It’s disgusting. Feel free to disagree.)

I’ll announce the winner next week but till then crack open a few dozen of each and see which one you enjoy the most.

Git ‘R Done America
