    My own home made ale, stout, porter and pilsner. Make my own in six
    gallon batches and every one has been great for over 15 years at a cost
    of 50 cents a pint. It is better than I can buy. Newest batch was
    Modelo Negro, yum.

    Love Modelo Negro. We used to have one of those ''make your own beer
    places" around here but I never tried it. Making beer at home isn't
    something I want to try.

    Most beer from Mexico is, more of less, "German Style".

    Don't want to get too picky but the beer is Negra Modelo :-) The
    adjective refers to cerveza not the company Modelo.

    I make mine in 5 gallon batches. I am not impressed with most pilsners
    so the only batch I brewed was the Moosehead clone that came with the Mr
    Beer that I eventually melted doing an experiment with mead.

    I the primary fermenter is a batch the uses woodruff instead of hops. I
    will bottle it in a week (tasting then) and open the first bottle in
    mid-August.

    Grupo Modelo is one of the two biggest beer makers in Mexico and it
    makes Corona which is a German style lager as you might expect from the
    fact that Mexico's beer industry was started by German immigrants. To
    tell the truth, I don't go out of my way to drink Mexican lagers tho'
    they are perfectly OK and better than Budweiser.

    I think Corona is an American style lager rather than German. German
    beer wouldn't have corn in it. It might be OK beer if they didn't put
    it in clear bottles and set it out in the sun to get "skunked".

    (Dos Equis and Modelo are more German style)

    As much as Coors, Bud, and any other canoe beers, are. I didn't say GOOD
    German-style. Look at Mexico's history. Lotta German collaboration,
    there. Lotta German missionaries. Jes like Thailand's Singha or
    China's Tsingtoa beers. All from German missionaries. Them Germans
    got around. Needed their beer. You seen any Mexican ales, lately?

    Corona is often sold around here as a premium beer. It is not the kind
    of beer I would pay premium prices for.

    A minor quibble. The Germans developed lagering, using slow
    bottom-fermenting yeast, so you could say any lager is a German-style
    beer.

    Same here. Amazes me anyone drinks it at all. It's no coincidence it
    started it rise to popularity with a wedge of lime served in the bottle
    opening. It needs all the flavor help it can get.

    I don't think one can attribute ethnicity to any beer. Corona is one
    of the world's most popular beers, it's brewed in 170 countrys.

    German beer, by law, is made with all malted grain (that doesn't mean
    it's all good.)

    American style lagers uses as little malt and as much rice, corn, or
    wheat as the brewer can get away with (that doesn't mean it's all bad)
    and typically has less hops. I think the goal isn't so much to reduce
    cost as it is to make it palatable to young females, thus expanding
    the market. Cheaper to brew is just a side benefit.

    As the weather gets hotter, my beer tends to get lighter. I've
    recently switched from IPA's to Michelob Golden. (but the weather has
    turned cooler again so I got some "Hofbrau Bock" at TJ's)

    Being a pilsner it's arguably Czech rather than either USian or German.

    By the way this has another implication - Most beer from the US is, more
    or less, "Czech style" because pilsners are far and away the most
    popular beer on the mass market in America.

    Arguably the lightness of American pilsners was the driver for the
    popularity of home brewing and the microbrewery and brewpub trends.
    Some Americans decided that it is okay for beer to have good flavor.
    ;^)

    > (Dos Equis and Modelo are more German style)


    Pilsner is a light lager style. Modelo is a more robust non-pilsner
    lager. Lagers originate in Germany. Whether the lineage is direct
    enough to call Modelo a German style is a matter of tastes but I easily
    understood the reference.
