Well, that part is correct.
I think the best I have ever had was Belhaven Brewery's St Andrew's Ale from Scotland.
Aass Brewery from Norway makes a killer Yule ale.
We used to make "Ozzie black and tans" by mixing Toth's Sheaf Stout with Coopers Real Ale. These blow away the wimpy Irish version.
There are quite a few good breweries in the US these days, but in my opinion, they tend to overdue the hops.
