    Considering US brewers are on the verge of dominating every single style, then I'm not really that bothered. God bless America.

    Pricing, will always welcome an old friend back from Europe, but not going to take many chances on beers 2-3 times their domestic competition...

    Well I want that as well, but I figured De Struise was a more reasonable request.

    I don't think there will be that big of a change in distribution being that most of the limitation and cost impact is at the state level vs federal. States with good booze laws may see some additional labels and those with asinine booze laws will still see nothing.

    I don't think U.S. brewers are dominating in any Belgian, German, or British styles. There are some decent examples, but in no way would I say "dominating".

    Emoticons should only be used when they arent needed to clarify, IMO. :stuck_out_tongue:

    No thanks, I like buying local and American Made beers. We have grown leaps and bounds in this country brew wise recently.

    If passed and implemented it can do no harm and only serve to diversify our current beer markets. I hope that it works, and that I see better foreign brews out their. If I can ever get a higher variety of high quality beers, I consider it a good thing.

    Hope this means more Italian craft over here.

    I wouldnt mind seeing some smaller Belgian, Italian, and German breweries making it over here. Honestly, German draft beer is killer.
