        Because they have add. The turn is just a possibility.

              Yes.

              I like beers from all three, but my current favorite is made locally by High Hops Brewery in Windsor Colorado, it is a "double IPA" called Dr Pat's. Very hoppy, good stuff. So I guess American is the best. For a more common liquor store brand, I like Sierra Nevada's Torpedo - Extra IPA. (also American) Guess I'm on a hops kick.

              For German, I'm going to say Stella Artois, even tho' it's from Belgium, close enough for me. Love that one.

              For Irish, I'll go with the standard Guinness I guess.

                Could it be because it's finally come to light that being dishonest will get you paid more, more often?

                Or is it simply the result of REWARDING honest hard work becoming a dying art?

                  Americans work more than anyone in the industrialized world.

                  More than the English, more than the French, way more than the Germans or Norwegians. Even, recently, more than the Japanese.

                  And Americans take less vacation, work longer days, and retire later, too.

                  For reasons that are too complex to cite, Jack is correct. The young parents in contemporary America not only work longer hours than their parents did, but they work longer hours than do citizens of any other country in the world. We have even recently surpassed the Japanese who have coined the term "Karoshi syndrome" meaning "death from overwork."

                  The facts don't seem to support that assertion. The currrent generation of workers are harder workers than their parents generation.

                        Guinness - Good choice! Ireland's gift to mankind.
                        Stella Artois - Another great beer, but not German, as you say.
                        St. Pauli Girl - Ah, now there's a fine German beer, and a marketing program that puts Godaddy to shame.
                        Bok - A Dutch delight.

                        I don't think the French know how to make beer, so have had to do with wine. And cheese. They do know how to make wine and cheese. I'll give them that. But I have heard there is a chain of brewpubs in France called Frog and Rosbif, which blend British and French traditions. ('Frog' is the English nickname for the French, and Rosbif or "roast beef" the French nickname for the English). So perhaps with a bit of English influence beer drinking in France has not been a lost art.

                        As for the Americans, give them enough time with their microbreweries and maybe we will see some world-class beers some day.

                              Only at night. No, wait, that would be vampire towns. Hmmm.
