    First off, I wasn't knocking the TASTE of British beer. Secondly, yes, I agree that there are a class of American beers that fit you description - (albeit I think you meant to say 'love in a canoe', not live), but the 8 craft breweries within two miles of my residence (one of which is now owned by InBev) would argue that they are not representative of American beers anymore. You are more than welcome to come for a visit and I will be more that happy to take you on a tasting tour of each one. Providing you reciprocate!

    I know.
    But you also probably know British beer isn’t actually “warm”
    But we amuse ourselves with the stereotypes.
    Just don’t mention the war...

    Come on y'all, if we're going to rag on the Brits for grips that leak oil we can't start cherry-picking US microbrews to defend US beer...

    With the TVR grip, the parts were sourced as overstock from larger suppliers and so may be readily available, but only if you recognize what they actually are because no records were kept about what came from where and when the changeover from one part to another occurred.

    There is no "English grip" for fencing weapons. The English grip is a small travelling bag. I am sure they call the handle of a fencing weapon something else entirely. Peg or slippet or perkle, I don't know. :D

    Well then it’s commonly called a Belgian Grip

    K'ON - I don't really consider Sam Adams, Shiner, Sierra Nevada, Saint Arnolds or Karbach 'Microbrews'

    I didn't say 'warm', I said room temperature - which IIRC in Britain is what we in the US consider 'rather cool'. ;-)
    As for the war …… which one, 1776 or 1812?

    The one we started? (and BTW, ironic that is a Belgian grip, because their beers beat both our countries'.)

    I’m not sure Robert Johnson ‘started the British Invasion’ but...

    I’m more of a gin or mezcal person than beer.
