I always liked to consider myself an artist with no artistic ability or medium. The beers I gravitate toward represent this as well. I would prefer to drink a beer that reaches for the heavens but epically failed than to drink one from the run of the mill. If I was to pigeon hole myself towards a style of beer, I would pick Belgium style ales. But why limit yourself with so many great options. Breweries I love follow this outlook, or philosophy, which include Lost Abbey, Dogfish Head, North Coast Brewery, Sam Adams, and Cigar City Brewing Company.
