It has to have been at least 15 years ago that I was told that I was a beer snob. I couldn’t deny it at the time and I certainly can’t deny it now.
Don’t get me wrong, I will drink the “mainstream” beer selections if I am in a bind, but I will take a local, craft, brew any time. While it used to be somewhat hard to be a beer snob, today it is easier than ever, I don’t think that there has ever been so many local brewery / brew pubs to pick from, not to mention dedicated taprooms that offer hundreds of different beers to sample. It really is a great time to be alive for beer drinkers.
