Indeed there are some US breweries that make nice European lagers. Boulevard has a very nice pilsner and Sam Adams had an interesting take with their Noble Pils. I've never bothered to learn why certain styles belong in a certain glass, but it's hard to beat a saison in a tulip glass!!! Believe it or not, but there's a small, but growing population that's very fascinated with Belgian beers. I once read an article that the average home brewer thinks of alcohol more often than the average alcoholic. Nonetheless, Belgian beers are doing well among the US microbrew crowd. Some of the US microbreweries are making some impressive Belgian ales, too. Boulevard's farmhouse ale is one that comes to mind.
