Or most of the microbrews - Around here in California, theres a brewery in 
Mendocino county - their most common brew is "Red Tail Ale" with a red tail 
hawk emblazoned on it. They also make a stronger brew "Eye of the Hawk" (with a 
hawk head in profile on the label), which is 8% alcohol.- 

For a macro-micro brew- Gordon Beirsch is pretty good - their seasonal winter 
bock is 7.5%

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is pretty good too, and has more hops than most larger 
scale beers

Farther south in California is Stone Brewing Company, their "Arogant Bastard" 
brew is pretty strong, not sure how strong.

Then there's "the Hopsicle" (it has a lot of hops), and Downtown Brown ("Barley 
wine", 11% alcohol)

Don't knock American Beer, knock the Americans that like drinking the pi$$ 
water called MGD/Coors/Budweiser (or even worse, Pabst), resulting in the bad 
american beer being produced in much higher quantities than the good.

Red Tale Ale/Eye of the Hawk, and every other beer Mendocino Brewing has are 
technically named after avain Therepod Dinosaurs of the Accipitriformes branch.
