I made it, posted it earlier in the thread.
One thing that is irritating is when you post something like this you always get "well I like x does that make me a bugman?", I know the right is autistic but its getting out of hand. See this
pol thread which some MPCer must have started.
I posted in that thread. I put in a good word for craft beer. It's true that at one time in the distant past all beer was "craft" and decently made, but most Gen-X people remember growing up at a time when there was very little alternative to the mass-market swill that huge numbers of people still consume without asking why: Coors, Bud, Molsons, Labatts, etc. If hipsters and/or bugmen accidentally manage to stumble upon products of quality now and again, good for them. (That being said, IPA is overrated as hell.)
180 (minute IPA). I much prefer bitter, hoppy beers to the corn-syrup-based alcoholic soft drinks that GloboHomoBevCorp puts out. Do I sometimes feel silly paying $13 for a 4 pack of Burton Baton? Sure I do. But its what I like, its better with food than, say, Coors Light, and I never expect to be offered such a thing when you're the host and I'm the company. The culture around craft brewing can be a bit ridiculous, though. It's cliquey and ritualistic in the way high school stoner-circles can be- You're using the wrong glass, maaaaan. You're pouring it the wrong way, maaaaan
. Not all bugmen are connoisseurs, but all connoisseurs are bugmen.
If I find myself spending more than three minutes looking over the beer in a liquor store, I usually say "quit being a f****t" and grab Yuengling. But I do love Dogfish 90 Minute, Narragansett's It's About Time, and Dale's.
