Fritz Ale IPA Special 2 was pretty decent, loads of Citra in that I reckon...

But although I applaud some brewers attempting to shake up the German beer market from itís (self enforced) sleep, do we really need to clone IPAís in the US mould the way the Danes have done? Surely something more... well, German... would be a good first step?

Is it better to shock consumers into realizing what is possible? Or to pull them along slowly, by degrees? Perhaps thereís room for both approaches.

To the first question: Nein. To the second: such as?

Iíd personally like to see my local Franconian brewers offer hoppy half-stout and trans-global half-IPA.

Couldnít agree more. Lichtenhainer, Grštzer, Broyhan and Keute: why doesnít anyone give these styles a go? Way more interesting than boring IPAs.

Given what a terrible job he made of Berliner Weisse, Iím glad he hasnít.

Heh, even though I didnít dislike it as a beer, I know what you mean...

Still, it might be good - heíd bring them to a more global attention, people seem to love his beers, and as long as it would lead to people seeking out and trying to recreate whatís left of their recipes instead of cloning his (if it wouldít be what itís supposed to be), then the mission would be successful.
