For those hoping to make a living from beer writing.... If you write in English rather than Americanish, you may be taken more seriously.— HellHound Brewery (@HellHoundBeer) February 9, 2016
A good point well made, I think.
The whole "craft beer" thing often seems like another expression of soft American cultural power, with a year zero approach to what we already have. Just look at the way the distinctively British elements of our existing beer culture are dismissed as inappropriately old-fashioned (or even offensive, by wilfully misconstruing certain elements intended as light-hearted as being offensive).
