Hey! It's been a while since I've been on this site but I thought this article while dated was good. I found myself laughing out loud when the writer started on English beer. ( Read it and you'll know what I mean.)

I did a search and didn't find this article on this site so here's a link to the American Spectator piece.

Do what you like!
Brew what you like!

Nice read. Especially since it's from 1976. Thanks!

Fascinating! Written when I was quite young, it makes me appreciate all the more the renewed riches of brewing we enjoy now! I do think it kind of funny that even back then, it seemed appropriate to bash BMC a little!
Packaged: 15 Minute APA, Simple Cyser '14 (Nelson Sauvin Dry Hopped!), Spiced Cider, Spur of the Moment Graff
Primary: Simple Cyser '15
Secondary: Why do I keep this line here...?
Bulk Aging: Cocobochet, Wild Cider (2014 & 2015)
Planned: Fruitcake Old Ale, Not Just for Breakfast Stout. Otherwise, so many ideas, not enough time to brew them....
