Part of the issue with craft beer is it's kinda all the same. What if I don't want another APA, IPA, DIPA, RIS, etc?
Or some whacky fruit/pepper/seasonal/whatever beer?
I know of several craft breweries that make excellent stouts and porters...but they're never on shelves, save around March. Wheat beer? Good luck finding any American wheats to enjoy on that nice warm spell in the winter. What variety their is is all seasonal, and then everyone seems to do it at once.
My area is finally starting to get fresh beer. The result is Stone, SN, and Sam Adams are selling better than they ever have, and it seems like folks are starting to understand "good beer", as opposed to just craft/local beer.
And don't get me started on the lack of real session beers...I know so many folks who like craft beer, but opt for American Pale Lager because it's just more session-able than an IPA.
