Lol thanks guys, and freakin right Canadians make boss beer.

I went with pretty much my whole family so there wasn't much partying going on. I went to this restaurant called Aux Vivres, an amazing vegan place, it was really hard to get my parents to go there. The only reason they went was because it was my birthday. And I had my first pizza in over a year, it was beautiful.

We also went to the biodome... I wasn't a huge fan, only because the penguins looked very sad... They literally stood and faced the wall the whole time. Sometimes lifting their arms. I'm usually not for going to zoos because it makes me cry when I see the animals with no stimulation but my sister told me it was cool. And it was other then the penguins. Oh my god, the fish there! Amazing! I took pictures (don't know if they are any good yet) Just so I could come home and post it on here. There was atlantic sturgeon bigger then me.

My sister did an excellent job at taking care of my fish. She didn't bother topping off the water, she was to afraid too. But she fed them perfectly, hell better then me. The water in my fry net usually looks a little scummy from leftover flakes that the fry doesn't eat. The water was perfect when I came home. I'm really pleased, her friend (probably intoxicated) even wanted to go out and buy me a fish, for my birthday present so when I came home I would have a new fish. But my sister told them not to and explained "something about bacteria" and "It could eat the other fish" I'm so proud of her :D

I'm going to get my camera and load my pics onto my computer. I'll share them soon.

Sounds like you had a fun trip!

I like Canadians and all, but I'm going to disagree about the "boss beer" claim. American microbreweries are currently producing the best beer in the world. The UK comes in second, along with Belgium if you're into that sort of thing. Next comes Ireland with their wonderful mild stouts. No nation should pride itself on its mass-produced rice-brewed slop. And don't think I'm not pointing fingers at you, Germany!

Well that was a bit of a rant, wasn't it? Anyway, I'm glad your fish did well!

Ha, ridiculous! I am German and have lived in Portland, OR for the last three years. Obviously, I have travelled Europe a bit, so my beer standards could not be higher.

There is no ranking by nation that would make any sense because there is amazing beer in almost any corner of the world (except Belgium). Germany produces some beers that is never exported because its sheer goodness would instantly KILL your average Miller sipping Joe American from Delphi, Ohio. And of course, there is truly horrible beer in Germany. And there are German beers that are not horrible and not good but very successful on the international market, such as Beck's.

And there is A LOT of horrible beer in the UK. Actually, most Britons I know prefer Stella and Holsten over most of their p...eer. But also good beer.

And yes, there is really amazing American beer. Year after year, I have been curing Germans from their beer elitism showing them the wonderful world of American craft beers and lagers. America definitely produces amazing beer, yes sir.

Now for the Belgians. Everyone knows Belgians are evil. Yes, they produce a number of good beers. The problem is the put stuff in it. Like chocolate and strawberry syrup. That is SO wrong. That is SO against the Reinheitsgebot!! But do they care? No, they don't. Evil Belgians...;)

Umm...slightly off topic, yes...I'm posting under the influence of good French wine. Great people, the French. Horrible beer though. :D

Lol hey now, I didn't say they make like the best beer in the world, but its pretty good beer. And no offence, but its WAY better then american beer. American beer is to soft, like pffft 4% whats that.

PDXfishy, I forgot about Stella :D That is by far, THE best beer ever.

Don't spend too much time with ratings. The best beers are usually restricted to very small markets, as the production of large quantities always goes hand in hand with compromises in terms of quality. And a ranking is just a summary of subjective impressions, even if they come from so-called "experts."

What is fascinates me about American beer is how good young breweries can be. Where I'm from, a brewery that is not at least 150 years old would not even been taken seriously. Here, my favorite beer is Bridgeport IPA, "Portland's oldest craft brewery." One night I looked at a label and saw "est. 1984." That is three years younger than me!!! ;)

Alibi on-topic contribution: Like occasional fasting is does not hurt the fish, neither does occasional over-feeding. In nature, those snack attacks happen, for example when a large fish dies and is consumed by everyone else around.

4%? I'm not talking about macro lagers here. A lot of Brits *do* enjoy Stella, but that's just another macro lager. Beck's is no different.

In regards to Germany: I really think the Reinheitsgebot has bogged down German beer. Sure, it protects against horrible atrocities such as using rice to make your macro lagers even cheaper, but it prevents craft breweries from adding interesting flavors to their beers.

Shey: the Dark Lord Imperial Stout is excellent, excellent beer, but I've never had the oak aged variant. Shame, really.

I also was referencing some of the better UK breweries, such as Sam Smith's and St. Peter's in England and Harviestoun, Belhaven and Traquiar in Scotland. Not at all talking about the horrible imported macro lagers they tend to drink en masse at football games.

My on-topic alibi: you sure it's a chubby male and not a pregnant female?

Very sure, I've seen him trying to get lucky with the females. Lol thats not the only reason I know he is a male though. I'll try and get a pic but I have a hard time getting pictures of fish in that tank. They are funny and always swimming around like crazy and the lightings not that great. He looks like hes going to burst.
