Exactly. Home brewing is all about crafting something "slow," something unique, something special. It is rebellion against mass produced, middle-of-the-line, insipid beer.
It is interesting how many craft movements are abounding today, getting back to ancient roots of society. Homebrew, BBQ, Food TV, home fermenting, farmer's markets on and on. Getting back to how things were done 2 centuries ago- natural, local, family, community.
The mass production and industrialization of food and drink is being fought against, and hooray
This article demonstrates how when it comes to mega produced foods, we have regressed. McChilisWeiser food and beverage. But brave souls are rediscovering the past, and how much better in some ways food and beverage were then.
If we weren't so obsessed, what would be the point of investing our time and money in a hobby such as homebrewing.
