Perhaps inevitably, even the remote island of Monhegan has acquired its own brewery. This can only be a good thing. A coffee roaster, a brewing company, a local cheesemaker. These are improvements to American society - both a look backward and forward, and a welcome change from the uniform suburban wasteland of my youth in the 20th century.
And of course, the beer is always good - certainly better than the homogenized swill that I drank at frat parties in college. That is also good. A society which improves its taste in food will improve its taste in other things.
