Read this news item from the Beer Advocate:
We simply don't understand how the vast majority of chefs can slap their food in the face by pairing it with mediocrity. Why go through the incredible attention to detail to make everything top-notch, only to embarrass yourself with a lame beer selection? We're consistently disappointed by this, and have yet to find a fine dining establishment that takes beer as seriously as they do their wine and spirits. What we need is a wake-up call to both brewers and restaurateurs. We need brewers and their distributors to put some real focus and actual effort on selling quality craft beer to fine dining establishments, and restaurateurs to simply just wake the hell up.Whoop-whoop! We need to be treated better. Clenched fist salute!
