That's why I don't blame breweries for this state of affairs. I lament the difficulty to find beers I find interesting but I blame the consumers. I realize that breweries are discontinuing their Schwarzbiers among others because they don't sell as well as the IPAs, big stouts and others but I'm still upset when they leave. Edit: That said I did have a local brewery where the owner always said he wanted some lower abv English ales in the area but he never worked to provide them. He also complained when fairly early in his business how few people were drinking IPAs. But then before to long he jumped onto the bandwagon and the taplist was often almost entirely hazy IPAs, big stouts, and saisons. Who knows if the local patrons would have accepted the more sessionable beers because he never really made them.
