How Do You Define Extreme Beer?
After our recent trip to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, we got to thinking about just where craft beer is headed. Though we tasted a small enough sample size that we don't feel comfortable definitively stating what the "trends" are in brewing, we did notice that the beers that got a lot of attention tended to be bigger, less "traditional" (for lack of a better word) and included a lot of wacky ingredients. I don't know if craft beer has entered the extreme era, but there seems to be something going on.
What's your definition of an extreme beer, and can you give me some examples? Take a minute to post a comment. You can do it anonymously. It would be nice to get some feedback on the topic.
