I still buy Weihenstephaner and Ayinger...they're always really good. I wish Spaten would get with it and go to brown bottles...such a waste of good beer. Otherwise, if you get some of the lesser known German imports, they're almost always sh!te tasting (STALE). I'd still prefer those beers over most IPAs and stouts that we get fresh here in the US though...so tired of those styles. And I want to see more black IPA on the market!Pilsner Urquell is in brown bottles now...I was surprised to find out it's not as, or at all, skunky.
Wow! That's nice to know. I have not purchased PU in years because of the packaging. I rarely check the imported section of my local beer store these days because there is such a huge selection of fresh craft beer.
