I was sceptical about US beer until my former flatmate (who is  
american) brought me some Dogfish Head beer back after a trip home.  
It's got to be up there with the best that England has to offer.

ISTR it's quite reasonably priced in waitrose these days. In fact,  
waitrose is a fantastic place to buy beer generally as they've got a  
huge selection and there's always something cheap (and often the boxes  
of 4).

The real question, though, is how easy is it to find a pub that serves  
a decent well kept pint in the US? It's getting harder and harder here.
