"Why?" you might reasonably ask. But who said I was reasonable? I have my reasons.
Mostly it's to avoid pointless, distracting arguments. Drinkers form emotional relationships with breweries. Nothing wrong with that. I'm just as guilty myself. But it doesn't make for reasoned debate if I continually slag off another's favourite. And, realistically, what do you care if I think some idolised breweries are rubbish?
I like to entertain and inform. I've nimbly sidestepped both in this post. Blame the first Abt of the day.
