Early on in this thread I was going to chime in but now I'm staying clear.
(Doug, if you come to Connecticut in the US, We'll draw some of our Cider for you.)

OK Dave, I'll put electrical tape over the name cider. My
family once owned Worthington Ale in England. Does that
make up for my impropriety?

Beer consists of four ingredients: malt, hops, yeast, and
motor oil.

The big American breweries (and some Canadian ones too) add
a lot of rice to make their bland, tasteless beer even more
bland and tasteless. (Tasteless Yellow Water)

The worldwide consolidation of breweries continues. Bass
Ale was previously made in Burton-upon-Trent, a place with
some of the hardest water in the world. Now, for the US
market at least, it is made in upstate New York, a place
with some of the softest water in the world.

Cider? Well, you can put it in a beer glass, but that
doesn't make it beer...

If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

Is cider considered to be beer in America?
