Wouldn't go that far. Why is it that all the best American beers are marketed as "English-style" or "Irish-style" or "German-style"? Because they know the real thing is better.
Actually, he was correct. The USA produces the best beer by far. The craft beer revolution started here and is growing. For those who are true beer connoisseurs, I highly recommend trying Oskar Blue's Deviant Dale's IPA.
If you want good beer in Ontario, you need to go to LCBO. The Beer Store is mostly for people who want the highest quantity of the cheapest beer possible.
There are a small selection of good beers available at the Beer Store but since it is owned by the big foreign breweries, they don't really have a lot of incentive to focus on anything other than their crappy macro swill.
Apparently our ideas of what constitute a quality beer differ greatly, then.
Beau's, Broadhead, Kichesippi or Brasseurs du Temps.
Anything local is better than macro swill.
I know one of the guys involved in Broadhead, it's PHENOMENAL beer. I can't recommend it enough.
That being said, there is "micro swill" just as much as there is "macro swill". I have had some TERRIBLE microbrew in my 31 years on this planet, trust me on that one. It's not an argument of micro vs macro, but good beer vs bad beer. For example, Creemore is technically "macro" as it's owned by Molson/Coors and has a large distribution, but it's flippin' DELICIOUS.
Obviously there's a ton of garbage "macro brew", but there's some very nice ones as well.
