30 years a beer drinker-the last 10 mostly craft. When I started drinking craft it was English, German and Belgian beers. Later I discovered domestic craft from New England, the Midwest and California. Now, I find that I prefer buying beer brewed in NY State, especially stuff brewed within 50 miles of my home. It's not that I feel that local beer is better, rather I think it is a desire to support my neighbors. I've taken a few brewery tours, met some cool people and would rather give my money to them rather than someone hundreds or thousands of miles of away. sometimes I put this preference over buying some proven top notch favorites. Who else feels this way?
