Ron over at Shut up about Barclay Perkins says today what I think is on the minds of many people.
Whats the point of brewing of going extreme if it tastes like shit.
In the defense of extreme beers I think one source of these styles may be the need to break from the yellow fizzy beers the most American beers drink. Really I think its not too different from a teenager dying their hair purple do be “different”. Perhaps to break the mold of their parents. Of course, in time ,when everyone is “different” we cease being different at all.
Lite Lager anyone?
