"Ireland - The Best Pint of Beer on the Planet"

Jump to last reply

So said food guru Anthony Bourdain, whose shows I really love, on his Lay Over show after visiting Dublin - he said the Irish serve up "the best pint of beer on the whole planet" - a pint of Guinness and another lighter beer were on the table when he said that.

T'is true - the best pint of draught beer is found in Ireland?

Well not to me - I don't even really like the burnt taste of Guinness that much or Irish/British beers in general - they seem watered down when compared to say a nice Dutch or Belgian Pils or German Lager.

Actually I'd say the best glass of beer could be found in Belgium, which I believe has one of the highest beer consumption rates in the world.

"Pils, please" is the gateway to beer heaven in Belgium.

Where do you think you get the best pint of beer on this planet?
