When it comes to Euro-beers, I say stick to German, Irish, Czech and Belgian assortments. A few other individual brands are good as well, but those four countries have the broadest base of goodins IMHO.
The article I posted explains it - no beer culture in the prohibition state. But the microbrews came out and they borrowed from the Germans, the Belgians and the English and there's some good stuff. Repression leads to some good ingenuity.

The Belgians still are the best. The Germans the purest (and Dinkel Acker Dark is Europe's best brew).
