Boddingtons is a good beer if you're not a fan of beer

Not entirely. You said you didn't like beer, but you like Boddingtons. This does not necessarilly imply the statement that I followed yours with, however it is a reasonable assumption, to be fair.

 

Other people who don't like beer per se might prefer something else as their "I don't like beer but I like this one" preference. I was, in fact subtly infering that Boddies is not actually a very good beer at all, which is more or less the opposite of what you said.

That is what I was expecting, since everyone bases "American beer" on mass-produced swill like Bud and Coors.

 

And yeah, they could have picked better beers for the American ones.  The ones featured in the video were all pretty good, but none of them were outstanding.  For instance, Lagunitas IPA is a pretty solid IPA, but it's far from being one of the best American IPAs.  I would have chosen one from Ballast Point or Firestone Walker.  For stouts, I would have picked Old Rasputin or Bourbon County over Storm King.  Storm King is pretty good, but not great.

 

Ireland produces a fraction of the beer that the US does.  When it comes to craft beer, the US is #1, hands down.

Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out
It doesn't matter much to me
