I hate to break the news to you, but the best commercial beer you've ever had was shit next to my worst home brew. I don't know if it's the ingredients (good beer ain't cheap), the lack of additives, or what the fuck, but you haven't had beer until you've had a good home brew. Beer is a lot like bread, ya know, the fresher the the better. Problem is, as lot of brew pubs cut corners on the ingredients, and sell it before its ready. Make it yourself, you can adjust the formula to your taste, and drink it when it's right. I don't brew much anymore, since the laws changed in Tennessee and you can actually buy decent beer now, but the best beer I've ever tasted was home brewed, by myself and others. Commercial beer is just a sham. frankly. I've never had a beer at any price that equalled the stuff I made myself. Bottom line, if you really want to have a transcendental beer experience, brew some at home.
