Beer Industry Reacts to ‘The New Yorker’ Cover
New Albanian Brewing Co., New Albany, IN
The conceptual basis of America’s better beer revolution always has been egalitarianism, or an ethos of equal opportunity for those seeking better beer. It is from whence better beer derives its authenticity. But by its very nature, snobbery is an act of exclusion, one turning inward, and both delineating and restricting access. Conversely, egalitarianism seeks broad dissemination of information and opportunity, and is the polar opposite of clannishness and hoarding. Ask not what better beer can do for you, but what you can do for better beer.
