Beers > International Beers
International beers encompass the whole world but its really Europe where the heart beats.The birthplace of beer may have been the Middle East and Egypt, but it has been in Europe that it has developed its fullness and rich variety which has then spread all over the world. This is also because the politically and culturally divided Ancient world was also divided in he types of flavours it enjoyed. For this reason the countries of Europe have throughout the centuries given rise to a wide variety of very different brewing traditions, resulting in an amazingly rich palette of tastes and types. As beer made its triumphant progress into other continents, so did individual facets of European brewing. In the United States, for example, people tend to prefer German and British beers are the most popular while in the Far East German beers are generally preferred, except in Indonesia where the taste is for Dutch beers. Quality also plays a major part here and Europe has something for everyone. Bohemia now Czech Republic started the pilsner revolution in the mid 19th century. Centuries earlier Germany had decreed its Purity Law, brewing a wide range of beers from Bock to Kolsch, from Alt to White Beer. Belgium and Holland display an interesting variety, ranging from Abbey beers to spiced and fruit beers. Britannia rules not only the waves but also the Ales and Stouts, Bitters and Porters.
