Five Beer Articles You Need To Read And Why, 4/17/16

I love beer (I have a blog dedicated to it so that seems rather obvious).  Outside of the beer, there are a couple of things surrounding craft beer that really interest me. One is the idea of brewing as a creative art that should be critiqued and studied as such (I’m working on a couple of bigger pieces that explores this).  Two is the confluence of beer with business and law.  The second interests me because alcohol has such an interesting place in society and its perception is so different across different parts of this society.  Among other things, with craft beer you can look at how governments treat business and how the treatment of drinking culture changes from generation and socio-economic strata.  Anyway, here is a bunch of articles about beer that are more about business and law than actual beer.
