This week’s S.N.O.T is having a strong beer and then going to bed.

Over the past 10 months or so, I’ve been working, selling wine and beer to a bunch of very nice people. That has exposed me to something that is a scourge upon any society—craft beer. Depending on who you are or what your opinions are on alcohol, those two words may evoke an image of a handlebar mustache sporting, unicycle riding, platt shirt clad nerd pontificating (that was me at one point earlier this year) about the glory of this Oolong Tea IPA.

Heck, that last paragraph was pretty stereotypical, and that’s what I’m curious about. There is a weird mystique that surrounds craft beer simply because of the people who drink it. I wonder just how many of you out there drink craft beer in any form (if so, what are you drinking, friend?). If you do indulge in craft beer, why do you? If you don’t, why do you choose not to?

Feel free to let loose in the comments with an answer to that question or anything else, Texans-related or not, as you enjoy your Saturday evening with us here at BRB.
