when you type overrated beer. Original here.
One this blog we have two hard and fast tenets.
1. There is a time and place for every beer.
2. Beer should always be approachable.
I tell you this because while people can slag on Bells, Mikkeller, Jolly Pumpkin, etc. for a variety of reasons they can't fault them for not expanding the our selection or experimenting with new,cool flavors and styles, and in today's beer world that is what is really important. These guys were and are pioneers and leaders bringing us back to some semblance of not only what we had 78 years ago before it was all taken away but introducing new things that wouldn't have even been available to us even then. I'm not saying that they are excused from critique or beer criticism, but here is the thing they just may listen if it is well-reasoned and logical. They are not MillerCoors or Anheuser-Busch InBev who could frankly give a shit what you the beer drinker think.
Thank you Dogfish Head, thank you Avery, thank you Sierra Nevada, and to every other craft brewer out busting your hump to slake our thirsts. I may not always like your brews but I'll always try them once and I sure do appreciate the fact that you are making them and the choices you give me.
If you think they are overrated then piss off and crawl back in your hole. It just leaves more for me.
