Re: Good Beer -- Where Can You Buy It?

Ah...Fat Tire. Have not had that in a few months. Miss that shit.

Just in case there is any thought that a "colonist" does not know as much about beer as their "native born cousins", allow me to show this picture.

In this picture, this is only about 1/5 of the beer selection at our (former) local Whole Foods (only about 2/5s is kept in the cold box). If you look closely you will see three different Chimays, most Samuel Smiths, Leffe, Delirum, etc etc. These are the "common beers" ready for drinking. Outside of this walk-in you have the other 3/5s of "less common" beers that includes most beers from Belgium, more-than-you-can-count German and Austrian beers, even more obscure US micros, English beers, French beers and...surprisingly...a healthy selection of SWISS BEERS.

Its laughable that I've seen and bought more beers from the Jura in the US than I have from BOTW Zurich (however, BOTW Luzern does in fact have more Jura beers than Zurich).

I miss Whole Foods.
Same story with potato chips. mmmmm
