Real Ale Fascists
I have a problem I share with you all. There are too many different kinds of beer.
I like both variety and quality when it comes to beer. Hell, I drank one or two of the first English revival ales 40 years ago.
But now every time I breathe a new brewery start up has set up shop. I would soon find my grave if I now tried to keep up, as I once did, with all this new fucking beer.
Also there is a trendiness to all these new beers and new beer people I find off putting. The Real Ale Movement is not a movement any more - it is just a bunch of yuppie motherfuckers cashing in on humanity's insatiable willingness to run, like hip fascists, in the same uniform as everybody else.
