Respect Beer!

This NYT article mentions my and Tom's hero, the brewer and beer advocate Garret Oliver, but observes: "Beer lovers have largely retreated to the antistyle precincts associated with such proverbial social outcasts as computer nerds and science fiction fanatics. Bizarre facial hair, unflattering T-shirts and strange headgear are standard equipment among beer geeks."

One of the great features of beer (also somewhat true of wine): some of the world's best beer is inexpensive. Trader Joes sells for $5/pack (in MI) some top-notch beer. Crummy beer costs, what, $4/pack (in MI)? The best beer on earth is only 2x or 3x the cost of crummy commercial beer.
