Beer is a miracle, a window to the past, a stolen moment, a vehicle for insight and connectedness. It’s the story of civilization. It belongs in a mouth-hole. It’s been a sacrament, a commodity, contraband, sustenance, trend, badge, relic, engine of industry, vocation, hobby, passion, causer of burps and insight and laughter. It’s a drinkable koan, simultaneously unfathomable and simpler than you think. More serious but more fun, too. Have a drink with me.
