If you want to see a true beer snob ask a Canadian about American beer. Personally I am delighted in the trend in the US to small breweries and brew pubs, tasted some pretty tasty items the last few years. My preferences tend towards dark and heavy with beer or ale.
Don't have any beer or wine in the workshop it affects my perspective somewhat, so I never dropped a bottle, though I never ever drink beer from a bottle unless in dire need.
I did have a plane hit a concrete floor once though, a real sweet Ohio Tool No.06 I ddi not see it hit the floor but I heard it and I knew it was done for.
Ahh well time for a Sleeman's Fine Porter.
(I also prefer single malt to blended to)
Craftsmanship is the skill employed in making a thing properly, and a good craftsman is one who has complete mastery over his tools and material, and who uses them with skill and honesty.
