  1. From "David Nilsen" :

    What is your take on breweries taking liberties with their bottle descriptions and art? You seemed a little critical of the storytelling on the Black Angel bottle. Do you generally prefer breweries not do that?

    • From "ChrisQ" :

      I think it’s more personal preference at a specific time and place. There’s been many times when I’ve been wanting to learn something about the beer in the bottle/can I’m holding only to find creative writing. It’s fine, and it can be fun/funny at times, but it gets old (to me) as well.
