Caused me pain, but didn't kill me.

But I do agree with the premise. Craft beer seems like it could make you a bunch of money, but it's much more difficult than one might think.


In PA they tried this with Old Reading a few years ago

to appreciate it. You needed to hang out in jazz supper clubs.


That certainly is a possibility. I was hanging around

in Dillon Hall (circa 1959).

Come to think of it, I can't remember ever being in a sopisticated jazz super club. Been in a lot of rock and roll bars though.
