I want to get something off my chest. I do not care what beer costs. There, I said it. And I don’t regret it.
I just had Magic Hat # 9 recently. It was one of the best beers I have had in a while. It really made an impression. I could have been charged $8.00 for it and it would have been worth it.
How can I say that when I am “at liberty” employment wise. Shouldn’t I be going cheap. NO. I want to taste the best beer, not any beer. The point is not to get drunk. The point is to savor and explore. That is part of the reason why I started this blog. I want to guide people to better beer.
I firmly believe that it is better to have one really awesome experience of 16 ounces than it is to get a sixer and feel woozy.
The esteemed Garrett Oliver explains via cheese and bread this same theory. Are you going to buy white bread and pre-packaged cheese slices or would it be better to have great farmhouse cheddar on a baguette from the local bakery?
Same goes with beer. I’ll skimp elsewhere.
