The scene sure has changed since 2001...for the better, and (much) worse. For every good microbeer there are a dozen bad ones. Prices have gotten ridiculous; many of the upper-end offerings cost more than, ie, Rochefort 10. And they arenít the Rock 10 in quality, consistency, product, or tradition . Take your expensive, uppity, bottle-conditioned, bourbon-imperial-RyeIPA hybrid and shove it.
