Itís good, but only part of it:
* Oft, styles are misconceptions
* To the extent that styles donít describe longstanding regional practices, they carry no prescriptive weight at all. "This is what a <n>th Coast pale ale should be like is otiose.

Wow, "otiose" is a great word. And it describes so many things in the world...

Good writing by Ken, as per usual.

Being musically minded, I think we have to proceed into new waters with one eye to the past. In the 20th century, many composers abstracted so far from established styles that nobody but a select group of musically educated people understood the music. The result is that not many people really care for "classical" music anymore, and the contemporary pieces in the genre are often ignored by most listeners. For that reason, often the most widely attended concerts occur within a "pops" series or the revisiting of an established classic (Beethovenís 5th Symphony, for instance).

I think a lot of breweries do a good job of mixing tradition and abstraction; in my eyes itís a key for sustaining our movement.
