  1. “When we think of American food, the first things that come to mind is … a good beer”
    I beg to disagree. “Good beer” and “American beer” are a contradiction in terms. *grin* But seriously: the good beers here, at least to my mind, are some of the microbreweries. Definitely not those of the big ones. And I still prefer German beers here. Luckily, here in Fredericksburg/Texas, I can even get some on draft.
