Warsteiner is one of my favorites as well. Those Bavarians are pretty good at making beer.:chr

Gotta love Warsteiner! If you like Warsteiner, give some other German beers a shot, such as Fraziskaner(my absolute favorite beer to date), Paulaner, and if you can find it, Radeberger. When I was in Germany, I always had a few bottles of these beers strapped onto my backpack! :D

Warsteiner is not from Bavaria.... itīs comin from the city Warstein which is in North Rhine-Westphalia. One of the worst German beers imho. There are many beers around which are much better. Leaves a terrible taste in the mouth, especially at the day after.

False. Until you have tried the 8 cents per half-liter bottle of beers in Germany, you don't know what bad beer is. Warsteiner seems like gold compared to some other beers in Germany, trust me. I know it is not fair to compare an 8 cent beer to a name brand beer, but just be careful in the future in choosing your phrasing of "worst German beers." :D

Well, oh my gosh, I seem to have been horribly wrong on more than one count.
Please forgive my inferior and poorly trained American tastebuds and my equally poor knowledge of German regions. I have been appropriately schooled, and am quite humbled.

8 cents per half-liter bottle of beer shouldn't named beer! :r

For the rest: I guess that I'm in situation to know a bit more about German beers than you cuz I lived app. 35 years in Germany. I'm native German.

Don't worry about that... my knowledges about regions in the US are not better.

And speakin about tastebuds: maybe you like it, all people have different likings, but for me it's one of the worst.

I don't know how they get away with calling it "beer", but somehow they do. As a poor college student I am not going to lie by saying that I didn't try a few bottles of these when I was there. Let's just say I never repayed them a visit after the first few bottles. :D

Also, wohin du in Deutschland gelebt? Ich war in Leipzig fur vier monate mit mein Universitat fur ein "Study Abroad" Programm. Meine Deutsch ist nicht so gut, aber ich liebe der Deutsche Sprache! Ich LIEBE Deutschland, und Deutsche Biere! :)

Originally I am from Ludwigshafen/Rhein, where the BASF (chemical company) is located. Before I moved to Switzerland I lived 10 years in Darmstadt (which is 30 km south of Frankfurt).
