I guess numbers do not lie. Even though I have a LOT of brewery options around me I still brew. I think for me it is the process more so than the product. I just love the actual brewing process and drinking a fine beer after is not bad either. I do think it is funny in a way. When I started to brew I was doing it to get away from the lagers and beers I felt were so lacking in flavor and now I find myself more drawn to lagers ( I still love a good IPA don't get me wrong) than the hot pastry/milkshake offering. Those nuanced flavors in a lager are just wonderful.
