I’ll admit to teetering between two different viewpoints from these results. From the ‘glass half full’ point of view, all but a few of participates are regular patrons their local brewing establishments – kudos to those that do. But from a more ‘glass half empty’ and pessimistic view, I wonder whether this is good enough. If our readers (a.k.a "beer fanatics") are only visiting their local brewpubs one or two times a month, are we contributing enough to the brewpub's customer base? Are we doing what we can to ensure the local brewing scene will still be around tomorrow and the next day? Can we do better?
Give it some thought and if your local brewpubs are producing good products, consider incrementing your support. Sustain and grow the local breweries and brewpubs in your area. Without our support, those businesses may very well fold.
Thanks to all those that participated. Please take a moment and participate in our next pool, which should already be up.
