Beer! The world's most widely consumed and oldest alcoholic beverage. Such is the importance of beer in modern society that beer is the third most popular drink in the world, behind water and tea. As such, beer is produced in many of the world's countries, with little variation on the ingredients used; water, malted barley, hops and yeast. Despite the simplicity of just four ingredients, there are huge variations in the taste of beer.
Whilst it's true that many countries produce many beers, it is a rather more difficult challenge to consume a beer from every country that produces the stuff. The beer must be brewed in the country of origin and not brewed under licence overseas.
This challenge started on 6th March 2011. Each country has it's own blog post. You will often see multiple beer entries in each country (denoted by a number after it's name), this is because either 1) the original beer was so horrible, the country deserves a second chance 2) I picked up a very obscure beer and it deserves to be listed 3) I wanted to review a spectrum of beers over the course.
If you have access to a beer from a country that I have not been able to drink yet, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll sort out a reward in exchange!
