Each week(ish), Tony Budny pens SCREAMING INTO THE VOID and looks at the best in writing and social media conversation around the biggest issues in beer. If you feel something should be included, have a tip, or just want to sound off, feel free to look him up on Twitter @drinksthethings, email DCBeer, or send a chatsnap or what else the kids do these days.
I’m going to talk very softly because by this point in SAVOR week, loud noises probably hurt your head.

Really enjoy the form there. He owns the whole thing.
Troll of the Week
It didn’t have to be this way. Our fate wasn’t sealed.
Oh well, at least craft beer is in good shape otherwise.
In my opinion, it's good to have reasons to do things. What would it take for me to want to fight someone after drinking?
Ah. That might do it.
I’ll bet I have an idea who that is.
SOMEBODY is ambitious this SAVOR week.
Occasional Reminder of the Week:
Reads of the Week:
- I’m going to open a brewery and call it existential crisis, because it feels as if craft beer as an industry has the same one every week. Case in point, the ongoing conversation about the definition of craft. My personal definition of craft is whatever tastes best while being poured at a modest rate into my facehole. Are you listening, BA?
- Hey, speaking of existential crisis, we've been waiting for Godot for quite some time now. Is it a bubble? When will it collapse? Why can’t we just enjoy some beer?
- If craft beer is in a bubble, that bubble is a rapidly expanding global bubble. A bubble filled with delicious beer floating around to new and exciting places, like Japan.
- It’s ok, though, because we're all going to be just drinking hard soda soon enough anyway. Hopefully out of more sustainable containers than aluminum cans.
OK, I’m going to very quietly walk back out your front door. You’re going to need some pain relievers and water over the weekend to help that. Be sure to follow @drinksthethings and let me know how my driving is. See you next week.
