I think it's definitely a worthwhile question to ask. I'm sure it's something many never consider. It just goes to show that breweries, like this site, can be full of all kinds of folks from different ethnicities & cultures. Looking at all the different countries represented here on HBT, it's inevitable that some would rise above the rest to become commercial craft brewers. Works for me. I don't care who you are, good beer is good beer. They may have a way of brewing it, or recipe that differentiates their beer somehow. Or they may brew a certain style better than many others do. I think that's the beauty of it. Take Garret Oliver for example. A highly educated man & that really knows what he's talking about. Their beers are decidedly different, but in a good way that I've tasted thus far. And their Spent Grain Chef pages show that they care about getting the most out of their beers & grains. It also shows what can be done with an inventive mind & knowledge.
