This is generally true, but nonetheless, some imports taste damn good. 
So far the discussion has focussed mainly on Aussie and European beers - 
can I point out that the Japanese Asahi beer is a damn fine specimen - 
intensely refreshing and refined - kinda a polar opposite to Coopers. 
Admittedly it is more of a summer beer; a great companion to sashimi. 
For that matter, there is a place on Cleveland St called Sushi Suma - go 
there if you get a chance. Very inconspicuous entrance, always packed to 
the brim with mostly Japanese ppl, and definitely not the place for a 
long meal including light, witty conversation. But the food is 
top-notch, and quite cheap too.
