The Acolyte and I have known one another for many years. He expressed an interested in writing in this blog from the perspective of someone who is relatively new to craft beer, which is a very useful perspective.
As we spread the good news of good booze throughout the land, we must always consider how our words will affect people. Good natured ribbing about drinking garbage beer is fine, but when it moves over to patronizing snobbery, then one is actually doing damage to the cause. It is my hope that the Acolyte’s posts can bring the perspective to remind us of our target audience.
So a huge welcome to the Acolyte of Ale, may he continue in his journey to find and partake of fine craft beer!
