Some of Today's "Craft" Beers are Pretty Questionable (Split off of PBR Thread)

The Professor | Dec 27, 201008:37 AM

PBR is a throwback _brand_, but certainly a different beer than it was even 35-40 years ago. As yellow water beers go, it still isn't half bad.

As much as I appreciate what the beer 'revolution' has brought in terms of bringing a bit more character to beer, I think the 'backlash' idea has validity too. With so many new brewers entering the marketplace, a lot of what's coming out of the so called "craft" scene these days is pretty questionable. It wouldn't surprise me at all if more of the old 'legacy' brands make a bit of a comeback...especially if the old brands are reintroduced to better reflect what they tasted like 50 or more years ago.
Some of them (PBR among them) were not nearly as bad as the "craft" industry hype machine would have folks believe...
