The beer shelves are getting fuller, and the list of possible beer choices is getting longer. Every time I go into a store that has even a moderate selection of craft beer, I encounter brews I haven’t tried yet. It’s easy to be distracted by the newest breweries – the small batch, you-might-not-ever-get-to-try-it-again beers. But picking something new always comes with the risk that it might not live up to expectations. Lately, I have been finding comfort in putting my faith in experienced, larger breweries, some of whom have hundreds, if not thousands of brew days logged.
