A perfect pour

Once upon a time, beer was something that was a pretty bland affair. It had one color and most people liked it more for the effect than the taste. Fast forward a couple decades, and beer is anything but bland anymore. There are numerous styles of beer from a fruit-infused pilsner to an oatmeal stout. These are called “craft brews” by those in the know and are produced by craft breweries, which now number in the thousands across the country. In North Texas, the explosion of craft breweries just in the last five years has created devoted fans who have fallen in love with the various beers being brewed right here in our own back yard. I talk with some of the folks who bring us these brews to get their take on why people have gone craft crazy, where the industry is headed, and just why it is we need all those various glasses for all these different beers.

Education Equation
