While this thread isn’t for me because I’d so love to consolidate beers along with adding necessary styles, I do wonder is there a point behind placing a country qualifier in front of almost every style old and new? Why American Pastry Stout? Or Belgian Grisette? I understand that most of these styles have a country/location of origin which can be used to categorize them and be placed in the Beer Style description, but why add it to style names where there doesn’t need a distinction? If a French brewer makes a pastry stout, is it still American?
