Beer in general got its own 10 Commandments issued in July of this year, curated by those that know better than everyone else who drinks.
And now our betters; those that
write communicate beer to the public; in such a way that they needed to form their own club with their own private invite system. Those that sometimes getting to flash their knowledgeable heads on Sunday morning Channel 4 toff programmes now get to dictate to not only their members but plebs like me who may wish to blog about beer every so often.
Of course this may sound like sour grapes but that long-standing quote by Groucho Marx seems most appropriate for this situation…
“The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.”
I suppose where CAMRA led with it Revitalisation Project so too all other off shoots of the beer bubble must follow. Everyone “in” beer has an image to portray and this must be upheld at all times. Even if they are preaching to the converted of an ever decreasing congregation.
The less said about the scruffy oiks that drink the stuff the best.
It is a brave new world.
Viva Le Schism.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Apologies if you were expecting NPC-meme related content, it is a disposable as each passing beer fad is.
