I've been trying Beck's in various stages of freshness in the last few weeks. Very tasty and made in the US.

Beck's is made in St. Louis now. Not the same beer of years past, but still a good beer. Night and day difference with the Bavarian lagers, but still has a lodo freshness.

They produce the Beck's line of beers in St. Louis and Williamsburg.

Below is the email concerning the freshness dating I sent AB as well as the list of US production facilities:

Thanks for posting! Totally grabbing a sixer soon. I have not had the new stuff yet, but I really liked the Beck's hop character and would die to come up with something similar. It seemed to have an aggressive bite that I liked alot. I was convinced they (and other pils brewers that I like) might be using Northern Brewer or higher alpha in a blend in the late additions.

When I lived in Korea (2000-2001) among the only non American mega brews we could get on the military bases was Becks (light and dark) and Heineken (light and dark).
I haven't had any of them in years, but I recall preferring Becks for the light side and Heineken for the dark (because I think that Heineken light, at least what you get in the states, is absolute crap and always skunked.
Heineken dark though was a really nice beer.
I wonder if I'd still feel the same 16 years later.
Maybe a quest for Heineken Dark is in order.
