Go figure? Nah, it makes perfect sense. Drinking craft beer makes folks amiable. Just look at an NHC as an example. Thousands of happily drunk folk together for days with no aggro, no drama.

How's this for an (implausible) scenario...... get all the world leaders started on drinking craft beer. Then get them together for a big bottle share. Each one brings great beer from their country. They sit around the table, sharing beer, talking beer.... then when everyone's happy they can solve all the world's problems. The difficult part is to get them all drinking craft beer!!! But, hey, it could work.

L.A. BTW.  Here I was wondering if I was going to be finding out some Louisiana beer thugs to be on the lookout for.

Great read! Nice to see the Oregon brands showing up, Deschutes and Base Camp.  A lot of good beers in those pictures.  A handful I've had and a lot I'd love to try.
