    it's funny how people can turn a dislike or preference for one thing into a fear of another

    and kind find utterly stewpud people to believe it and repeat it on the internet.

    A lot of wine people are wine SNOBs, who look down on sweeter wines that have more mass market appeal.


    The industry is dominated by these guys. It leads to them ill serving the larger potential market.

    "Texas" isn't the problem. THe wine industry is.

    The current beer culture has a sizable snob population as well.

    To me the difference between a beer snob and a beer connoisseur is the connoisseur likes complicated beers but recognizes the mass produced lagers have their own place.

    Bud is are good for sports events, Coronas are great on the beach. Coors light is perfect for when you want to consume large amounts without getting drunk quick.

    My favorite Peanut Butter Stout is not perfect for the situations above.

    And Schaefer Beer is to pour on your head in celebration because it tastes like piss, so don't drink it.

    But, It's the one beer to have when you're having more than one.

    What to serve with our next meal?...will grape or grain be most ideal?

    Sometimes only wine will do - others need a beer or two...
