The subsequent Al Capone movies and moonshine were about the only good things to come out of America's Prohibitionist hell in the 1930's because, let’s be fair, what consequently passed as American beer for the next 50 years was nothing short of muck. Thankfully though this has all changed.
Forget the corporate megabreweries and behemoths of the likes of Miller and Coors, beer in America is in the vanguard of the craft beer revolution. In fact, most international beer trends are now influenced by the innovation and creativity coming out of the American craft beer scene.
High quality American beers from the likes of Goose Island, Brooklyn Brewery, and Sierra Nevada never disappoint while Stone Brewing Co. or Rogue Ales, for example, bring big flavours and that famous West Coast individuality.
