Well hmmm...I like to get drunk on a good beer that has good flavor & aroma,good head,...lacing is a bonus. I'll drink whatever a fellow hands me that he/she has. "I took it,fearing that I might appear,rude,& he proceeded to sell me some 2nd class booze"-stranger in blue suade shoes. Thank you,very mush...

A beer connoisseur means nothing to me, a cicerone on the other hand will make me pay a little attention.

But if I call my self a beer "connoisseur", maybe that would connote that I like good craft beer? Just a thought!
Nope. They'll think you want three Rolling Rocks.

I like to see myself as a beer enthusiast. I'm enthusiastic about having a great beer.


I get a lot of "so-and-so would really like your beer! They drink Killian's/Amber Bock/Corona/BL Lime!" and a small piece of me becomes very offended. not for long though.

I refer to some people as beer common-sewers. They are the ones that soak up all your homebrew but really don't know the difference and would be just as happy getting buzzed on something else.

Actually, "artisanal" is the French word for "craft". If this was referring to art, the term would be "artistique". Still, using a French word for any food related stuff sounds overly posh to me.
This being said, brewing beer has all the components needed to be defined as an art.

I consider beer art. I also consider beer a craft. perspective is a dangerous tool in the right/wrong hands. bwahahaha!
