Beer Geography

I moved to San Francisco about a year ago and the beer here is just too hoppy. From what I can piece together from some foggy memories of Portland, the beer there was nice and malty and dark and wonderful. Of course, I still love the hearty beers from my home in New England (Did anyone out there get a taste of the Smoked Lager that Sam Adams was brewing a few months ago). From what I can tell, beers from the middle of the country tend to be on the light side for my taste. Would anyone out there like to speculate on the cause of vastly different regional beer tastes? Can I get some sypathy for being stuck here in SF drinking hopped up beer while soon my friends back east will get to trudge to the pub in the snow for all those great porters and stouts and lagers.
