I was in my local grocery store and perused down the beer aisle and I'm just stunned at how many varieties of beer there are now. I'll bet there are 100 different makers and this my local grocery store, not a specialty beer or wine shop. Back when I started drinking beer at age 15 (1978) there were about 8 brands in most liquor stores in my home town of Manchester Ct and I don't recall any grocery stores selling beer. Bud, Miller, Michelobe, Heineken (which was exotic), Pabts, Schlitz and that was about it.

How times have changed....

How many brands of Japanese knives could you get in the US in 1978? :-)

I'm kind of a beer slut. I try all kinds of different brands and I'm not very loyal. My last purchase was Ale Asylem's Hopalicious: http://aleasylum.com/hopalicious/

Back when I was a drunken child, I was a binge drinker and would think nothing of downing a six pack in a couple hours. Now, I almost never drink more than 1. I hate getting hang overs so 1 beer with dinner gives me that nice warm fuzzy feeling without paying for it the next morning. :)

I'll trade you a twelve pack of Samuel Adams Cold Snap for a Tanaka. :D

It is a good time to like craft beer. Inside a twenty minute drive I have been to some six breweries, two of which are excellent. And I'm just a few hours away from Asheville, which has more breweries per capita than any other city in the country. Our restaurant pairs beer alongside wine now, too.

But for me, it's liquor.
