Growing up on Lake Austin and Travis, my uncle and me used to make Mustang grape wine and " Home Brew Beer..er sorry " Craft beer" ourselves, so they just replaced Home Brew with Crafted to make it sound better

Call it what you want. It is just nice to have so much domestic choice in great beers when 15 years ago it wasn't the case. (In Texas anyway)

FBH it's still homebrew but if you're doing it at home. I call my beer homebrew not craft beer but if I'm at a bar I use the word craft beer because that's the marketing name. If I use micro they would look at me like I was nuts, some still look at me funny when I say craft.

Agree! I've converted a few bud drinkers into the "craft" beer section. They all pretty much say the same thing that I said when I first had a Fireman 4. "Didn't know beer had this much flavor".

Cheers!

My normal beer is Torpedo from Sierra nevada. One of the best beers I ever drank is Dead Guy Ale from Rogue. Fat tire triple is just a bit heavy tasting but still good.


I had to edit because I wrote flat tire instead of fat tire.
