THE NEW FACE OF CRAFT BEER IS HERE
REBECCA WHYMAN • MARCH 8, 2019 Tara Rafiq illustration
You know that phenomenon when something, seemingly out of nowhere, tickles your brain, then takes up residence, and has you ruminating for months? That’s what happened to me at Bart Watson’s key-note speech at the B.C. Brewers’ Conference back in October. The chief economist for the American Brewers Association gave an engaging talk about the state of craft brewing, chock-full of brain tickling stats and his interpretations of what they mean now and for the future. Including this innocuous little slide:
Nothing controversial here, folks. Just that some craft beer drinkers are drinking more craft beer, and say they are doing so because they visit breweries. Isn’t that nice? The industry must love when the already-converted are drinking even more craft. And all breweries had to do was offer appreciators a way to visit them at the source? Pure gold! …
I'm single. I have been for several years.
I was really enjoying my single state during those years. I did what I wanted, when I wanted. It was pretty glorious.
I've started thinking though, that I would like some companionship too.
Now that I have popped by head up and looked around, I realize I have no idea how one goes about meeting people.
I have friends. But there's not a pool of potential dates within that friend group. Or anyone with a secret stash of available friends of friends they have somehow kept from me until now.
How did I used to get dates?
I would start playing a new sport. Or go to the bar.
I'm middle-aged now. There is no bar.
I don't think.
Is there one?
God, if there is, someone tell me where it is!
I understood the etiquette of meeting people at bars.
I do not understand this whole internet dating and hooking up thing.
I wish there was a book - How to Internet Date for Middle-Aged Dummies
There is this cheatsheet, but geesh, how old do …
