Here's a list, coupled with a virtuoso rating of all the beer we've swallowed. Whilst the Belgian tonics where a clear winner, there was also a sprinkling of ales to match St Arnolds (the patron saint of Belgian brewers) Mighty Crew.

If you value the delights of a Heineken or the yeasty sensation of Coopers Sparkling Ale, then anything over 8 should harmonize with your palate. If it's in the 6's, sample at your own risk.
The 7's, if the cupboard is bare.

BELGIUM  --  King of Beers

With over 600 varieties, Belgium is a beer lovers paradise. Beer is a central element of their national tradition. In no other nation can you purchase such diversity in an ordinary cafe (so there).

Now some good folk will argue that the Germans have the best drop, but for the Vee, you just can't beat -- that Belgie goblet style.
