Today we have literally thousands of choices in our beers. Many are excellent, some are best forgotten. But everyone has a favourite and every beer has its fervent followers, even if only the family drinking the home brewed version.
These pages are devoted to the beers of the world and the fascinating bottles and labels that embellish them. The total collection contains about 600 bottles. The images are in a separate folder and all are linked to the directories below. However, you have to use the back button on your browser to get to the next beer.
The beers are rated according to my unique definition. This does not attempt to grade every single beer to the finest degree, but instead to give some practical guide to whether the beer is fantastic, worth a try - or instead - best avoided.
May I suggest you check out my favourite beers first. Then have a look for your favourites. To make things easier for you to find you favourite beers, bottles or labels, I suggest you look under countries. From here you can find beers in the collection sorted by brewery within each country. All beers named in these pages are linked to one or more images. Having found the beers you want, load the images individually, using the back button on your browser to return to the group which interests you.
If the country you are interested in has an asterisk (*) after its name then I have not yet made a page for it.
Alternatively, you can search for beers by name, by brewery worldwide, my own scoring system for the best beers or by alcohol strength.
If your favourite brew is not listed it means I have not yet tried it, or can't remember doing so. In either case it means it is unlikely I can easily get it in Australia. If you want it listed send me a bottle (no cans) and I will include it and review it. Your assistance will be acknowledged.
