Started drinking craft beer in the early 90s. Have not had a bud/Coors/miller in over 20 years.

Speaking of making things by hand, "craft beer" sounds very much like "hand made." Why is hand made better? Why is hand made soap or hand made candles better? (wouldn't that hurt anyway?).

This exemplifies things for me right now: The hipster beer crowd around Boston/Cambridge is obsessed with this beer called "Heady Topper." It's definitely interesting beer, but I don't particularly like the taste. Announcing my lack of preference in a hipster bar around here would be the same as announcing that I'm an a**hole who hates good beer. Supposedly your not allowed to buy more than one 4 pack at a time (the 4 pack being another hallmark of the heady hipster beer scene), and that forced exclusivity seems to have created this aura of greatness around the beer. I think it's lame.

Anyway, I like beer a lot. I'm just getting a little tired of what's become The Beer Scene.
I can dig where your coming from to a point but it's not as bad of a scene as you portray it. Most of the people in the craft beer industry are great folks. Craft Beer is exactly what it says. It's a craft to produce great beer. Most of the craft brewers that I know are very talented individuals that have put their heart and soul (and most of their livelihood) into their craft because of the passion they have for beer and the beer scene.

It's not unlike the "Jeep Scene". Everyone on this forum is very passionate about Jeeps and think there is no other vehicle like it (same as craft beer to an enthusiast), but to an outsider some of this could appear to be a little overboard to if they don't have the same passion for Jeeps. Your statement about "hipster beer crowd" is true to a point. These are folks that kind of jumped on the bandwagon. But they are not unlike what people here describe as "Soccer Moms". They are certainly not the purists, but hell, there's room for everyone right?

This was my first Enjoy By beer. I've grown kind of tired of IPA's, but this was damn good. Super hoppy as to be expected for an Imperial, but not as bitter as you'd expect. Smooth drinker and you barely sensed the 9.4% ABV.

EnglishBulldog1 Been on a Oktoberfest kick lately. Favorite is from Millstream. Otherwise IPA is the only way to go. Founders!

dirtybiketrash Just tried a case of City Brewing's LaCrosse Light Lager. It uses the original Old Style recipe, and is fully krausened. It is pretty good for a cheaper 30.

That was cool! I wouldn't call it a prank, though. Depending on the brew it's a home improvement.

There are plenty of "go to" beers outside of that junk.

If you are on the east coast, Yuengling.
Here in the mid-west, my "go to" is Leinenkugel's

What I mean by "go-to" is something that isn't "too expensive" and is availble at pretty much any liquor or grocery store, and can be found in both cans or bottles if you know where to look.
What about two brothers? They are great - really like the outlaw ipa and north wind stout.

Yuengling is my go to as well. Sometimes Shocktop. Yuengling's Oktoberfest is damn good! I wasn't impressed with their porter, but love Black and Tan. I rediscovered Miller High Life last year. Not horrible for a cheap beer. It takes a 6 pack to get any noticeable effects, though.

I had a Corona or three yesterday, first time in a while. I forgot how much I like that beer.

Wordgie I drink plenty of water when doing yard work.

You are correct! On a hot day water will hydrate you better than anything else! So while I am working, I do like a lot of water, because of the heat in Arizona. But after work is where the BEER takes over, just for enjoyment!

Old Dogger Instead of talking about BEER, we should be drinking our BREW..........Two six packs of Budweiser a day, takes all of your cares and pain away, just try it, because you will like it..............

Wordgie Sammy Octoberfest is awesome. Some of the styles in the sampler pack may not be for all tastes. The pumpkin one is real good.

I had a Yuengling Oktoberfest last night. I'd never seen it before but it was great!

I also had the Terrapin Pumpkinfest. Wow, probably the best pumpkin beer I've had. But I didn't expect anything less from them.
