Craft beer- it's insdious!

I'm seeing an increasing amount of craft beer in places it never would have been found before. Blue-collar bars, chain convenience stores, bowling alleys, little divey restaurants- it's everywhere, and I like what I'm seeing.

It shows that craft beer isn't viewed as a snobby drink for geeky engineers anymore. It's a legitimate segment of the beer industry, and it's selling to consumers outside its traditional base. If this continues, the USA will be a great brewing nation indeed.

You need to post beer tastings before they happen not the night after. How was last nights?

insdious? Is that even a real word?

How did your event at the Krown go Thursday evening?

I wish the same was true in my neck of the woods (Southern Minnesota). There are bars that sell good craft beers, but they are few and far between.

I wrote a post related to this on my blog (if you would allow some shameless promotion) at http://homebrewandchemistry.blogspot.com/2007/01/beer-and-geography.html

Considering I'm 1500 miles from the nearest ocean and I can get "fresh" seafood, I should be able to get good beer from anywhere.

Dude, Southern Minnesota? Are the roads even paved over there?
