    You need to quit while you are behind.
    Niche???
    Uh.... I wouldn't call $27.6 Billion annually a niche.
    As well as no one, and I mean NO ONE would call a product that is now 24% of the U.S. market a "niche".

    Think of how much higher it really is than 27.6 billion when you factor in all the guys doing it with no official capacity for book-keeping, too.

    It has been awhile, but I wrote a thread here about beer in America. There is not a better representation with everything that is wrong with corporatism/corruption etc. than the story of beer in America. I will not elaborate here since this is not a political area of USMB... but just to say, I wish more people were educated about the craft beer movement, and how important and significant..and just all around beautiful thing that has dared to challenge the corporations and is WINNING.

    God, I hope so.


    My friends are all sucked into this fad. It makes getting together to have a beer, almost painful.


    It is fucking hilarious to see someone whom, I've seen puking his guts out, from too many quarter drafts, to get a flight of different craft beers and post reviews on each one of them. And then compare them to his past reviews. ANd then compare them to his friends reviews. And then I don't even know what, because by then I am actively NOT listening.
