    There is no such thing as craft beer, just good beer and bad beer

    curling is an olympic sport right, maybe not as big and in your face as wrestling, but still an olympic sport. Wait this is up to debate these days as you may have heard.

    Yep.

    Anyone who would NOT drink a well crafted lager is NOT a craft-beer drinker in my book.

    Craft can also be a verb.

    FWTW.

    I dare anyone to have Smuttynose Baltic Porter and tell me it's not a craft brew.

    Just say what you have to say about it using a lager yeast rather than wasting everyone's time on an argument that will go nowhere fast.
