Kettle souring has raised the sour trend, I believe, but I wonder if it will continue.  Mixed fermentation styles are trending up, as well, with a Brett finish and secondary additive, such as fruit.

I can only pray that the dry-hopped fruit sours will die a quick death.

Pray hard, and keep faith even if He doesn't answer you the way you might prefer.  :)

Thanks, folks, for the trends. I have so many now that I can safely ignore the ones I don't like!

And maybe macro homebrew will become a trend itself, one day!

Another trend...simplicity.  Surveys show that fewer and fewer people want homebrewing to be an all consuming passion.  They want a relatively quick and easy procedure that fits in with the rest of their lives.

There are other things a person can do?  I dunno.  ;D

It may not seem like it to the people who are here and on other forums, but that's the way things are going....
