On my recent stay in Melbourne and in fact at times in Brisbane I have spoken to various people behind the bar and they all tend to love the idea of people brewing their own. I think most of them have 'got' the fact that to go through the trouble that AG brewers do we truly love the golden drop and as a follow on enjoy tasting all different styles and types. One of the blokes at Deja Vu the other night said he had a few regular customers as brewers and they always bought other people in to try 'real beer' instead of the other crap. His words. He said they were a great help in converting people. This got me thinking. Our hobby has clealry advanced from the days of Brigalow K & K's and the reason for brewing being it was cheaper. Whether the cost was the initial motive for getting into the hobby it soon morphs into something much more. When out and about we in fact pay more for decent beer than we did in our megaswill days. So the question for those that got into the hobby for costs; have we in fact become a cog, all be it small, in the commercial brewery world anyway? Over to you gents.................................
