So I'm attending a reception type thing later and other people are bringing various bottles of wine and I thought I'd bring some nice beer. Back in "the day" (ie about 10 years ago) I had events like this more often, and I'd stop by my local store and get a bottle of something (usually) Belgian/Belgian-style, like say, Three Philosophers or Brooklyn Local 1 or 2, along those lines. Nothing exotic, but not just like a six-pack of whatever either. So I went looking this morning to see what I could find and was shocked about how few options there were. The first place I stopped had only a Bruery sour something or other (I was surprised the Bruery even distributed here, honestly), and the second had only two choices: La Fin du Monde or Chimay Blue. Better than nothing, certainly, but a bit disappointing. Is this normal nowadays? What changed? Or is my memory of a wider range of options just nostalgia for something that never existed?
