Contrary to popular (and ignorant) belief among non-Americans, the USA has some of the best beer in the world. America is home to many world-renowned breweries such as Dogfish Head, Stone, Boston Brewery (Sam Adams), Russian River, Sierra Nevada, Three Floyd's, Rogue, Lagunitas, Alaskan and Lost Abbey.

The United States is home to many of its own distinct types of beer, such as Imperial IPAs, Belgian IPAs, Imperial red ales, Steam ales, Strong ales, Cream ales, Blonde ales and Dry lagers.

Although I do enjoy beers from Europe such as Belgians and English browns, and Belgian ales might be the best brewed beer ever, the majority of foreign beer that gets imported to the United States just cannot hold up to the majority of the brew coming from American microbrews nowadays.

The big 3 American domestic companies do not represent true face of American beer.
Pliny the Elder is an American beer that kicks the crap out of anything from the U.K. or Germany.

H2O (or HOH) is the most abundant molecule on the surface of the earth. At room temperature it is a nearly colorless, tasteless, and odorless liquid. Boils at 100°C, freezes at 0°C. You should drink at least 8 glasses of it a day.

Defined by a few large quantity brewers who produce absolute swill, and thousands of small, relatively unknown brewers who, in fact, make some of the best beer in the world, in many cases better than import beers.
Compare Budweiser with a nice, high quality Pyramid beer. Both are american beer, but vastly different in quality and taste.

American Beer is beer produced in America. Prohibition of alcohol in America during the early 20th century led to the demise of nearly all breweries in America. Those that survived by making root beer, converting to dairy processing, or bootlegging made beer as cheaply as possible for many reasons. Among them are a poor economy, catering to a public now unaccustomed to flavorful beer, and having to meet a high demand very quickly. Adjuncts such as corn and rice became commonplace. A rich and colorful brewing tradition of hundreds of years was almost lost. The ensuing race to mass produce flavorless swill led to the rise of the "Big 3", whose weak and watery pilseners are the butt of many old, obsolete, TIRED jokes. The fact is, that if one doesn't realize that there is a greater wealth of creativity, experimentation, flavor, body, and style in America's brewing industry right now than in much of the rest of the world, well; one is simply not paying any attention.
If you think all American beer sucks, you probably either don't get out enough or just don't like beer.
