How applicable is the Gartner Hype Cycle to 2019's Craft Beer scene?
Needs homerism and scarcity as inputs.
Other inputs needed:
What rare barrel was the beer aged in?
How murky is the beer?
What pasty flavorings/ingredients were added?
I see we've found a new way to make all the same posts.
That plateau seems optimistic.
deer in the headlights look on my face while staring at the graph....
How about you boys go dig a hole, and I'll get myself another beer.
I think it would be much more applicable to styles instead of craft beer in general
I like the way Time is a constant bottom line. Like, that is cool.....
When I was a kid, I had a hand-me-down Hypecycle that had belonged to my older brother. Big balloon tires, thick fenders and I could barely reach the pedals when I first took it over. While all my friends were riding Schwinn "Sting-Rays" (well, one guy whose father was laid off built an imitation Sting-Ray out of his sister's pink 20" bike by buying a banana seat, the big handle bars and some Rustoleum Cherry Red spray-paint at W.T. Grants. He had a paper route, so he had some cash and needed a bike).
They made fun of me, but I made it through. Well, somebody did steal my Sandy Koufax baseball glove off the handle bars one day. I think I know who did it but... statute of limitations and all.
I haven't seen W.T. Grants mentioned in a very looooong time. My older sister worked at a W.T. Grant store for several years.
So many references, that the young 'uns won't even get, in one post. You sir, win the internet for today.
My favorite bike was my Huffy Thunder Road. Had a #54 on it, thick block seat, sport plastic fenders. That bike got me to the ball field just fine...used to build ramps with friends with wood and cinder blocks and see how many big wheels we could jump like Evil Kinevil jumping school buses. I didn't have the Sandy Koufax glove, but I had a Rawlings Brooks Robinson that was my actually my dad's hand me down glove. Thing was so huge on my hand, but I won many gold gloves in little league sucking up grounders from shortstop. Nostalgia is great isn't it?
I'd like to have the baseball cards that I collected and attached to the spokes back.
That doesn't apply here, there is generally no trough. What next, a Gartner Magic Quadrant with quality and cost as the axes? Or quality and hype?
Its great but highly suspect in terms of accuracy.
I've been playing SS for over 35 years (including last night), and the overwhelming conventional wisdom is that middle infielders should have the smallest glove of anyone. Playing SS with an oversized glove is a nightmare for me.
But hey, nobody would ever tell you to have a batting stance like another SS, Julio Franco, and he was an All Star and banged out over 2,500 hits in his career.
To keep things slightly relevant, last night at the game I drank a Stone White Ghost berliner weisse, Sierra Nevada Hazy IPA and Anderson Valley Brut IPA. We lost 11-3, but I went 1-2, BB, 2 rbi.
But balloons made a much better sound...until they popped!
What else were you going to do with the ones of Washington Senators or Kansas City Athletics?
Dude, Harmon KilleBREW!
Should also include artificial scarcity i.e. Dark Lord and any limited Toppling Goliath release.
Nahhh, holes have a useful purpose
No, I'm talking about the second Washington Senators, the expansion team, after the originals moved to the Twin Cities...
I was so psyched to get my cool Huffy Bandit and then so devastated when everyone at school made fun of it.
Looking at the photo now they were kind of right. It looks like a dorkified Thunder Road.
I suggest a +/∆ chart using Post-It notes. I always loooove doing those in staff meetings...
Hey, now... they're now my favorite team (MN Twins)!
OK... you mean the Texas Rangers, then...
Need a NE style IPA series named "Trough of Disillusionment", "Slope of Enlightenment", and "Plateau of Productivity"
You left out "Peak of Inflated Expectations".
We already have lots of those....
You cannot quantify Neckbeards or their odd behavior "patterns".
These sound like names that Tired Hands would use.
I was thinking more like Hill Farmstead. They go deep into the intellectual wording of their beer titles (when they aren't naming them after dead friends and family members that is).
Does Hill Farmstead have anything close to:
We Are All Infinite Energy Vibrating At The Same Frequency
LOL, I guess the guys at Tired Hands figured out the "420" IPA title was already used too many times, so they came up with that long "cosmic energy" title instead. HF has "What is Enlightenment" which made me think of them from the "Slope of Enlightenment" in the graph.
I just got back from meeting a friend for lunch at Tired Hands. The topic of We Are All Infinite Energy Vibrating At The Same Frequency came up and I remarked: "I wonder what they were smoking when the came up with that name?".
FWIW the longest name on the beer menu today was "Austere Modular Three" which needless to say is a very short name compared to the Infinite Energy beer name.
I wonder what Austere Modular Three means?
You could honestly just go with the classic design (leader, challenger, etc.) and have a unique quadrant for each beer style.
Sounds like it come from the Deepak Chopra quote generator.
Its a paraphrasing of a Bill Hicks bit... the infinite energy one
I had to web search “Bill Hicks”.
Is below the quote you think this beer’s name is ‘based’ on?
“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the Weather.”
― Bill Hicks
@JackHorzempa that's the one
*shakes head with sadness*
What I gleaned from this thread..... My first bike was a Huffy Thunder Road. That's awesome!
