Reuben Gray has announced the topic for The Session #56. He’s calling it “Thanks to the big boys” and explains . . .
What I ‘m looking for is this. Most of us that write about beer do so with the small independent brewery in mind. Often it is along the lines of Micro brew = Good and Macro brew, anything brewed by the large multinationals is evil and should be destroyed. Well I don’t agree with that, though there may be some that are a little evil….
Anyway I want people to pick a large brewery or corporation that owns a lot of breweries. There are many to chose from. Give thanks to them for something they have done. Maybe they produce a beer you do actually like. Maybe they do great things for the cause of beer in general even if their beer is bland and tasteless but enjoyed by millions every day.
There is an alternative: “If you honestly have nothing good to say about a large brewer, then make something up. Some satire might be nice, It will be a Friday after all.”
October 7, as a matter of fact.
