Before the cocktail craze, there was the craft beer movement.
Sluggish interest in small brewery beers had given big, commercial breweries primacy over the US beer market, which remains one of the largest in the world. We have a romantic notion of idealistic rebels organising a rebellion against the “evil” beer barons. However, we suspect that the movement was simply powered by people who both wanted to make-and drink- beer that was to their liking.
As with all artisanal work, there will be a wide range in quality- from vaguely-beerish-swill to hop heaven.
Brooklyn Brewery is one of the latter, and we’re glad to say that they’re finally launching in Singapore.
