"There are many craft breweries that seek to create balanced, drinkable beers that aren’t very bitter at all, like Patrick Rue’s the Bruery in Placentia, Calif.,"
I wonder what The Bruery beers the author researched? I doubt it was 5 Gold Rings, or some of The Bruery's other complex creations. It must have been Mischief.
I'm all for more sour beers, wild ales, porters, stouts, Belgian pale ales, dubbels, tripels, quadrupels, but don't stop my hops, I must have hops. I NEED HOPS!
