What American micros have any of you ever seen abroad? I have seen none yet there are more than a handful of imports (often obscure) that are obviously readily available to us here in the States from all around the globe. I was just thinking what would happen if our top micros from the United States were widely available in the UK and Europe? How successful would Lagunitas, Stone, North Coast, Victory, Bell's, etc, fare on the road? This concern came about due to friends from the UK who for some reason think "American" beer includes beers like Corona. I'm really sick of that. I know that the money and influence are with the big brewers but how does one get the smaller pubs abroad to take an interest in genuinely good American beer products?
