What do you mean? Some folks want to explore things like Gruits and other styles that may not
have been hopped...though other folks just don't understand what role hops play and end up with

I don't understand why someone would want to go through the effort of brewing up a batch of
beer and not add an essential component that is meant to balance it out. It's like not adding
salt and peppe...
