Default Confessions of a Beer Snob

Hey! It's been a while since I've been on this site but I thought this article while dated was good. I found myself laughing out loud when the writer started on English beer. ( Read it and you'll know what I mean.)

I did a search and didn't find this article on this site so here's a link to the American Spectator piece.

Nice read. Especially since it's from 1976. Thanks!

Fascinating! Written when I was quite young, it makes me appreciate all the more the renewed riches of brewing we enjoy now! I do think it kind of funny that even back then, it seemed appropriate to bash BMC a little!
