    OK. It's worth a try. I may have had Sierra Nevada. Not sure, but I've had a number of micro-brews, which are obviously better but not to the level of the European beers. Hey, I even think Tecate is better than 95% of American beers.

    I'm happy that our small business can thrive....there's room for lots of tastes....perhaps the microbrew movement may have pre-saged the fancy coffee eruption into our market......I'd rather see a return to thousands of small breweries serving our nation providing local flavor, local jobs and real choice to consumers.

    I specifically recommend the following:

    Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot Barleywine
    Victory Storm King Russian Imperial Stout
    New Belgium's 1885 Ale
    Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot
    Rogue Dead Guy Ale
    Weyerbacher's Insanity
    Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA
    Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA

    You will find that any of these beers have abundant enjoyable flavor.

    U.S. has plenty of good beer, it's just not the companies you see plastered all over billboards, chain restaurants and on TV commercials.

    Looks like someone failed to read the thread.

    I recommend you do that, and try one of these while you're doing it:

    This past weekend I had some Black Butte Porter from Deschutes Brewery in Oregon. It was absolutely fantastic, with a slight hint of dark chocolate and a deep flavor despite not being traditionally "heavy" like a stout. Immediately one of my favorites.

    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    ^Had their IPA on Thanksgiving. Living in the land of good beer rules (PacNW)...

    Last night I consumed the best beer I've ever had: "Quilter's Irish Death" from Iron Horse Brewery (Washington).

    I'm not a hardcore beer enthusiast, but I do happen to live in the Northwest, where kick ass beer is made. I'm rather fond of Bridgeport's IPA.
