Obscure beer styles like these interest me.

Over the years, I've been fortunate to taste examples of many of these styles. The one most interesting to me today is Kottbusser; I seem to remember Jerry Gnagy producing one at BBC St. Matthews seven or so years ago, but I may be wrong.

What intrigues me the most is that for all their obscurity now, most were everyday beers in their original incarnations. Naturally, I daydream about reviving them for everyday drinking in the current time, and not merely as one-offs or seasonals.

Don't tell me: Someone's already doing it, right?

Point the way, then. I'd plan a vacation around this sort of concept. The article is better than the norm when it comes to lists, as this list isn't totally arbitrary and useless. Thank you, Alex.
