In this discussion, a newbie (seen here) would like to ask a naive, yet very important question for all beer lovers. Why do you drink the beer that you drink? If you drink Craft Beer, why is it important that you avoid the local (americanized) macro-brews? If you are a macro kind of Dude (or Dudette as the case may be) why do you partake?
As for me, I prefer the smaller brew set. I am just getting into beer now that I have a teacher to show me the ropes, patient enough to realize that I am too much academic and not enough brains. I have always enjoyed a good Shiner, and have only recently begun to undertake the particular tastes of the Northeast. But I want to hear from you, the experts about what you have to say. Any and all comments will be appreciated.
Oh, and let me know if you have any good suggestions for me to give a whirl. Thanks!
