I don't like that craft beers have shifted quality imported beers off the shelves. Even in larger beer stores, you may have one small rack of Belgian beers, so that they can make room for entire aisles full of forgettable IPA's with funny names.

I really like beer. I dislike the current craft beer culture.

In Portland the beer culture is literally unsustainable.

It's seriously just [expletive] mass produced beer (of which I am a loyal drinker) and nonsensically-named IPA's with dumb packaging at this point.

They also have a bunch of imperial stouts. And sours so those guys who can say that they LOOOOOOVE sours, when no one in their right mind likes drinking that [expletive] for enjoyment.

We have a bar in my town that used to have a pretty good selection of about 40 beers on tap, with fairly good variety. Now you can choose between about 20 IPA's, 8 imperial stouts, 5 sours, the current seasonal from Great Lakes, and PBR. Woo hoo.

Big beer controls the shelves, and a fair amount of taps, you know.

To be fair though, IPAin in the Ass from 1Direction4EVA Brewing is deliciously hoppy with a crisp bite and a smooth finish.

I find that there are two options. Either the major breweries dominate the shelves (which yes, will sometimes include all of the various InBev brands from around the world) along with a spattering of Sam Adams and New Belgium, or it is just craft beers because they are pushing back against the big boys. I like stuff from all around the world. There are literally hundreds of beer styles. Why are there so many [expletive] IPA's?
