Fussy, elitist and overcomplicated?

Many thanks to Velky Al For drawing our attention to this little gem by Keir Graff in Timeout/Chicago
Beer doesn’t have to be fussy, elitist and overcomplicated.
That’s what wine is for.
Beer should be for the rest of us: affordable, easy to enjoy, thirst slaking and confidence restoring.
Read the piece here.

Incidentally, why was all the glassware in Star Trek so obviously difficult to drink out of? I know that Jim is swigging from the bottle here, but even the glasses were mental. Why was that? Huh?

I once bought my brother a star trek mug like the ones they use on the show. The problem was that its open topped pyramid shape meant you had to tip the thing almost upside down when you got to the bottom half of you cup of tea!

He frequently spilt tea everywhere, which for me (as the younger brother) made the present more than worth the money!
