Craig forwarded me this Australian video titled Shit Beer Geeks Say which has likely been seen before but which is as good a counterpoint there is out there in contrast to 2010's fawning and even a bit creepy "I Am A Craft Beer Unpaid Brand Ambassador"... whatever that is.
Reminds me. We should make July "Global No Craft Beer Jackass-ery Month". What will we have as the rules for this month? Hmm... How about if you hear anyone making a stupid statement like in this video about good beer being more complex about wine, going on about a hop variety, arguing over style or some other such thing you get to stand up, point at the person making the statement and should "Craft Beer Jackass!!!" at them at the top of your voice. And if you hear someone saying that you have to run over, stand next to them and applaud as you stare quizzically at the offending person. That'd work. Sure beats the hell out of Central Manitoba Beer Week or Southeast Walla Walla Beer Fortnight.
