Well, maybe it's not official yet. But the hoopla surrounding the Younger may be starting to decline, finally. According to this article in Sacramento Bee, there were "only" a couple dozen people in line at the Pour House in Midtown when their keg of Younger was tapped, which was significantly fewer than last year, and keg held out for 32 minutes, as opposed to 17 minutes last year. Though the article includes the obligatory quote from the guy who got there four hours early in order to be first and line (he said it was worth it), the headline includes the question "is the craze waning?" I don't know if we've reached the turning point yet, but at some point people will figure this one out. PtY is a wonderful beer, but it doesn't make much sense to wait in line for it when you can get any number of beers that are just about as good (or, depending on your tastes, maybe even better) any day of the week without all that hassle.
