Us homebrewers/beer enthusiasts can be quite the snooty bunch when it comes to our passion. More often than not, I tend to turn a cheek to the offender who calls all craft beer "dark" or who flagrantly claims that their miller is far superior to any craft beer, however there are times when I can't help but rage on the inside.
Recently I was on a brewery tour. Everything was going fine and it was your pretty standard tour where the guide asked what the 4 main ingredients of beer were etc. The tour kept moving on and we got to the fermenters. And then the guide proclaimed that all beer is lagered. Now, hold on one second there. Wait. Nuh uh.
Listen, I get that most commercial beer will be cooled to a degree at some point but that is NOT the process of lagering. I flipped out on the inside, clenched my jaw on the outside and didn't waste any amount of time speaking up; mouth shut, I finished the tour and enjoyed some great beer.
