I wish I could try your american/canadian beers here in Belgium, not that we need more beer, but I'm sure each country has some very nice ones
There aren't too many North American brewers who can brew consistently good Belgian style beers like dubbels, strong dark ales, and tripels. Unibroue, Ommegang (though part of a Belgian group of brewers) and Boulevard Brewing are the only ones I've tried that come somewhat close to their Belgian inspirations. Definitely no where near the quality of the Trappiste brewers as well.
There are some very good saisons from some US brewers though, which I'm thankful for.
The emphasis in the US craft beer world has definitely been the IPA (and double IPA) and imperial stouts, with almost every craft brewer having at least one of those two styles as part of their line up. You can go almost anywhere in the US and be able to try a good representative of either style, which is pretty awesome.
