Foreign Beer May Actually Be Brewed Locally
December 8th, 2011
Fosters might be “Australian for beer” but it’s been made in Texas since 1993. And Red Stripe, “the taste of Jamaica,” is soon to be brewed in Wisconsin. Beck’s, “the world’s No. 1 German beer,” is moving production to Missouri, and Kirin, your Japanese pilsner, is made in Los Angeles. Bass English Ale? Well, that’s made in upstate New York, as is Chicago’s 312 Urban Wheat Ale. Even Sam Adam’s Boston Lager has some batches brewed in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
If you want a true import, Heineken still hails from the Netherlands, and Corona is still made in Mexico (at least for now).
