    Maybe you can get better in Ould Blighty, but out here in the Colonies....
Remember, to be widely available in the States, a British beer has to be 
available in bottles, and high enough in alcohol to ship well.  Most of them 
aren't ENOUGH better than American craft beers to justify the import price.

    I was weaned (away from American beers) on Bass and Guinness, and
still drink Bass occasionally.
