Over-rated. It's dirty and noisy and cramped. The food is just ok.
In other words: What is all of the fuss?
And I like my beer fresh. When I'm in Europe I'll drink Belgian beer.
Why drink imported beer that's been sitting on a container ship for god knows how long and in god knows what temperatures? Flat skunky beer versus a fresh Bud or a Rolling Rock (which is now Bud, anyway) is a no-brainer.
Stop taking beer so seriously. It's just beer. It's not froie gras.
