Sam Calagione outlines the Doctrine of Trojan Geese Transubstantiation.

Funny, isn't it?

When I say and write almost exactly these same things, local Indyucky beer aficionados look at me as if I've urinated on Baby Jeeebus.

Then they trot right out to buy Dogfish Head ... and worse, Trojan Goose, the latter pumping money into AB InBev's coffers to pay the lawyers who are opposing House Bill 168 in Kentucky -- you know, the one the aficionados support.  They can spend hours debating wood grains in used barrels, and yet cannot manage to follow the money. Regrettable, but not uncommon in an age of solipsistic narcissism, whether braggot or braggart.

Anyway ... right on, Sam Calagione.

Maybe you can talk some sense into them.

Dogfish Head's Sam Calagione Squares Off Against Budweiser, by Matt Allyn (Men's Journal)

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione is one of craft beer's great evangelists. Since launching his initial Rehoboth Beach, Delaware brewpub in 1995, Calagione made waves in the brewing world for innovative hopping techniques, recreating ancient recipes, and pushing the limits of extreme beer. Outside his brewery, he travels tirelessly to spread the good word of craft brewing through food, music, and beer events.
