Most important question of the day. I'm making a beer run for the weekend. That's not just a simple task as my county doesn't allow liquor sales... including beer... to the average person. Restaurants can sell by the glass, but that's it. They also have to gouge you with "membership fees" to drink at their establishment. It's horrible.
So the question, do I buy American beers for the World Cup or do I drink themed to the country we're playing in pool play? Obviously Slovenia and Algeria could be tough, especially in a beer-starved state like Texas, but I'm also open to suggestions in the comments.
Sam Adams - It's a solid American representative even if it's not the best. I'd prefer Ommegang's Three Philosophers, but that's a Belgian style of beer despite being American. I think I can at least convince myself that Sam Adams is a very American style. I refuse light beer or anything owned by those Dutch (Bud) or English (Miller).
Bass - Light enough where I can have a few over the game, but not so much that I'll be full at the half.
From what I hear, they like pale lagers. I may cheat and head 2 countries north to Pilsner Urquell. It may not be true Slovenia, but where am I going to find a Slovenian beer in this market? Unlikely.
Algeria is primarily Muslim to the point that alcohol is very limited. I'm definitely in help of something that can represent Algeria. Perhaps O'Douls due to the alcohol ban? Yeah right.
