Stella’s fairly nasty but they had an extremely successful ad campaign that has convinced people it’s “premium”. Not much PBR to be found at all this side of the pond. If people do know it it’s as the archetypal hipster cliché beer.
You find a few British beers in the US that people really seem to love, like Newcastle. Brits know it as Newkey Brown and I don’t think it’s held in quite as high regard by most people over here.
