“The simple philosophy you should try to keep in mind is that is that beer is (and always should have been) a luxury good. Modern factory brewing, where beer is more about being a refreshing vehicle for alcohol consumption than a thing on its own, has somewhat changed our viewpoint on this.
It should not muddy the picture… beer should be something special. We don’t need it, we want it, and we’re lucky enough to be living in the best of times if we love it. Go forth, spending an appropriate proportion of your weekly budget, on the very best beer you can afford.”
