    But what is the problem with beers made with hops or bacteria strains that impart "fruity" flavor like citra or mosaic hops and brettanomyces? Those beers are by no means "fruit beers." Some are more akin to aged brandy with their booziness and flavor.

    They aren't for everyone but the way you guys go on about it, it sounds like the only craft beer you've actually seen is what ever nonsense they sell in the NEX.
    Beer's one of the few American made products that is better now than it was 35 years ago. Rainmaker can remember coming back from a 2 year tour in Germany in 93 and thinking that Bud, Miller, Coors etc. all tasted like Bottled horse piss.... But, today whenever we travel back to Europe we'll find most of the American beers are actually better than the German beers.

    What's not to Love? It's an American success story of small companies taking back a huge share of the market from the big beer makers and employing people locally.

    In the last "Beer World Rankings" Germany was #1, the U.S. were #2, and England was #3. 90% of the time I'm going to drink Miller Lite, because I like the taste and, because it's not as "strong" as a 8.5% craft beer I can enjoy a few cold ones while working around the yard when it's hot outside without getting a headache. The craft beers, being stronger, are harder to do that with. The craft beer is more like drinking a Scotch. It's good once in awhile with a meal or when just hanging out and having "A" beer.

    Again, it's not the craft beer I dislike. It's the pretensious people who drink it that really bothers me.

    This is definitely a new golden age for American beer. I think a side benefit of all the competition has been the macro-brews having to get better too.

    Sadly, We probably have just a small window of time before the big boys buy off the regulators and start undercutting the competition and consolidate the market .

    Soon, we'll be back to having to drink 3.2% Fairy piss. Beer is a case study in how .gov fucks up everything it touches. America was widely considered to have the best breweries in the world (Back before the Nanny Progressive's prohibition destroyed the industry).

    Know what you mean. Rainmaker don't have "craft" beer in the fridge either (usually Keep yuengling at home). But, there's nothing better than enjoying a fine microbrew next to a long legged, Beautiful, Blonde, Blue Eyed, Buxom, Teutonic Babe in town!

    Glad you brought this up Rusty..... Because, yesterday marked the 49th anniversary of the Jewish State of Israel's unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty (which killed & wounded over 200 American Sailors).

    Last night Rainmaker scoured the idiot box hoping to find media coverage of the events commemorating this sad day and ceremonies honoring their families sacrifice.

    Strangely there was no mention of it whatsoever on ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX or CNN. (just like every other year since it happened)....

    But, I did find LOTS of coverage of the testimony (from the President of the World Jewish Congress) before the Bi-partisan sponsors of the Senate Bill to allow rich Oligarch Jews to make claims against and seize the property of other people that was purchased decades before they were even born.

    I prefer Viagra. I don't like taking pills every day and when I take a Viagra my wife kind of feels obligated so as not to waste the pills.
