We interrupt the silence here for two quick links.
In fact I’d collected a bunch of stories during the last several days that I put the much of the beer world at arm’s length (in other words, I could still reach for a pint). I planned a “beer linkorama” today. There’s the madness in San Diego to comment on, Slate’s take on the Miller Lite ad campaign, several interesting blind tastings, more on corks, etc. But you’ve probably already seen those things.
Instead I suggest you start with Pete Brown’s “CAMRA’s noxious culture of entitlement.”
Read the comments, give it some thought.
Before you dismiss such boorish behavior as specific to a few bearded oafs in the UK consider the question it provokes from Alan McLeod: “Where Else Hides The Culture of Entitlement?”
This isn’t just about beer and I don’t think it is a generational thing, but I suspect you can easily add to Alan’s list of five.
