In my end of year review I argued that there had been a fundamental shift in the attitudes of brewers – that the likes of Brew Dog and Thornbridge were now spearheading a much wider movement of more experimental and innovative brewing.
This week I expanded on that thought in a feature for The Publican. I like writing for this magazine. They keep putting my features on their website so I can link to them. But don’t let that put you off buying the mag too, there’s loads more good stuff in it.
Am I right? Or am I making a mountain out of a few speciality beer crown caps? To continue my music analogy, have I spotted punk or acid house, or am I the sad sack author of Romo or the New Wave of the New Wave? (see Melody Maker in the early 1990s if you don’t know what I’m talking about – yo probably don’t. And that’s my point.)
