cptjeff: HotWingAgenda: Sierra Nevada is not craft beer.They sold out, before it was cool, ect?cygnusx13: Isn't "craft beer" in, and of itself, hipster douchey?It's more of a, you like it if you have taste buds thing, you don't if you want vaguely beer flavored rice alcohol water just to get hammered thing.
swahnhennessy: Cocktail recipes?
Marquis de Sod: I like drinking local. In Michigan we have Bell's, Founder's, and some others that are good.
rynthetyn: I was a hipster before hipsters were cool. Went to a college that was overrun with people wearing thrift store clothes out of guilt for their family's wealth, we all sat around dressed poorly and listening to indie and folk music, and nothing seems to have changed with hipsters in the decade since I graduated.
LDM90: I'd like to ban the word "craft."
CognaciousThunk: LDM90: I'd like to ban the word "craft."This. 'Craft' should be used for ugly little items that end up on Etsy.
Thelyphthoric: I know a Irish gent who drinks fancy imported beer. Budweiser.
dforkus: Is the New Belgium line considered "craft" beer? You can get it in Sam's club now, which don't get me wrong, is awesome.,,
cptjeff: DarkSoulNoHope: Why is the world buying in to the American brewing revolution?My question is, why is the world buying into the Hipster "revolution"?Irony is a defense mechanism. You have a large generation coming of age in pretty nasty times, so you either resort to cynicism or irony. To give the extreme case, you believe in nothing, or take nothing seriously, because playing it straight and approaching the world on its own terms is too painful. I tend to play it straight, but I slip into one or the other when I need relief. I don't think I'm all that exceptional in that. But given a bell curve, it shouldn't shock you to realize that there are people who will consistently react with irony (hipsters) or consistently react with cynicism.Generational traits exist because world events and cultural trends affect our formative experiences, and when you're hitting people with a similar environment at the same stage in their lives, they're going to develop similar reactions. When a large contingent consistently come back to taking nothing seriously as a way of dealing with the world, you get hipsters.As for your historical views on other outsider social prospectives, there's too much I would have to unpack and correct for 4AM, so I'll leave it be. I'd just say that the whole 'hipsters don't have jobs' thing is caricature, not fact.
DarkSoulNoHope: Why is the world buying in to the American brewing revolution?My question is, why is the world buying into the Hipster "revolution"? Other subcultures had the short lived organization that were much maligned by the majority (beatnicks, hippies, punks) or the long term organization that is holding on by the skin of it's teeth and barely resembles it's early roots (Goth), but it never had the social acceptance that Hipster seems to have. Goths and Punks may have collectively gotten a single neighborhood (Camden Town, London) or part of a street (St Marks Place, NYC or Broad Street, Philadelphia or other examples that I haven't personally experienced), but Hipsters have somehow gotten neighborhoods to gentrify towards their "unique" authenticity seeking, and then when it becomes "played out" (too popular and/or expensive - for example, the Brooklyn Hipsters are moving out to either, Upstate NY, Queens, or to small cities and suburbs in New Jersey) they move into a new area and inhabit that area and change things till the prior residents are pushed out due to higher housing values that those existing rent payers can't afford.What makes me most confused is the parental support for these Hipsters. For Beatnicks, Hippies, Punks, Goths, Emos, ect got at most tolerated by parents, but somehow Hipsters have gotten their wealthy parents to be in awe of their "artiness" and get money for expensive housing, food, vintage clothing, vinyl records, and purchased "found art". I had to pay my own way through college when my parents didn't like the fact that I didn't want to get a business degree or an IT degree (didn't like the idea of being a cold hearted businessman and knew that outsourcing would kill my job chances with an IT degree). I am just in shock that somehow if you pretend to be artistic to your parents, these days they'll give you money and not act as if you are supposed to be admonished because of your personal choices. What changed?!For Beatnicks, Hippies, Punks, Goths, Emos, ect

Sgt Otter: cygnusx13: Isn't "craft beer" in, and of itself, hipster douchey?Reminds me of this girl I went out. I told her I was taking her to a steakhouse for her birthday.I got her a nice table at The Sizzler, then ordered a skirt steak well done with extra ketchup. But that wasn't good enough for little miss hipster douchebagette.
Tunney: I heard a rumour that a dissident splinter group of CAMRA tried to blow up the BrewDog brewery. Not sure if it's true though.
