I grow some tobacco, don't really smoke, but I do like to make a cigar every now and then. Never made a good one yet. It smells good hangin/dryin.

Had a still down by the bay, Ike got it.

I recall, dimly, that the title of the thread is BEST Canned Beer.

Not whatever is on sale at Costco, or what I can gouge from the rafters, or whatever's cold. Or sorta cold.

Transcend your rat-like focus. Think Quality, Excellence in the Brewer's Art.

After all, the thread is a beer buff's way of trolling for unknown, wonderful river beers.

There are some serious beer fanatics on this forum who might enjoy a beer site— What Part Of Beer Don't You Understand?

Found it while searching for a US distributor for Speight's. Which there ain't one. Trader Vic's used to sell it, but now Speight's NZ claims they're unable to register their trademark in the US.

I do like their website: . There's a bunch of "Southern Man" blather and even a rugby trivia quiz.

Speight's. That's NZ macro's at it's finest. The west coast brewery was our staple the last couple trips. Monteith's Black.

Monteith's is berloody good beer. First had it on our initial drive down the west coast, South Island. One of those tourist buses mashed a cyclist (alas!) and traffic was halted for the investigation.

So we diverted to a roadside pub that had Monteith's on tap, and downed a few handles (in memoriam).

One great thing about the Godzone is that there's a strong local identification with beers. In Greymouth, Hokitika, and Westland, Monteith's is the favourite.

Bloody good beer!

In the Wairarapa and Hawke's Bay, all the pubs fly signs for Tui:

Bloody good beer! (Yeah, right.)

In Auckland we lived just uphill from the Domain, about four blocks from the biggest brewery in NZ, on Khyber Pass Road. I'd wake up and smell the mash cooking and the vats. Walk right by it to do our shopping in Newmarket. There are worse things in this life.

Lion Red, DB— even the corporate canned beer is tasty. In fact, the worst beer I had in NZ was Steinlager, which I wouldn't pour on my cat. Although one credits their sponsorship of racing sail, etc.

I miss being there, for other reasons as well.

Just found a beer that I'd not seen in a can before: Red Stripe Lager, from Jamaica.

Great hot-weather brew!
