I bought my copy today.
Fermenting Revolution: How to Drink Beer & Save the World
Reading this book turns mere beer drinkers in beer activists, ready to fight corporate rule by meeting your neighbors for a pint at the local brewpub - fermenting a revolution one beer at a time.
That’s right down the pipe … in the wheelhouse … total sweet spot. Before I crack the cover, I need to get a bit further into my novel of the moment, Thomas Pynchon’s by turns exhausting and exhilarating “Against the Day,” but when the revolutionary beer book is finally undertaken, I promise to review it here.
Meanwhile, something’s being lost in a week-old comment thread. Reader “Well Hungarian” asks:
What is good beer? Is that not pretty subjective?
Hmm. There isn’t time today to consider this at length, but no, I think it isn’t subjective at all. As I ponder a more lengthy response, you are invited to discuss.
