Got new beer?
Man walks into a beer store and says, “Hey! You guys got any new brews!?”
“Probably. When was the last time you were in?” replies the Beer Clerk.
“About a year ago!”
“In that case, yes. Most of it.”
In the world of beer, there are standard beers that are available year-round, then there are seasonals, rotating release, small batch, occasionals, rarities, collaborations, annual, biennial, and brewed once / one-offs. So, working in a specialty beer store means you see a lot of beers come-and-go. As for new arrivals, one week you may get just a handful of new products, while another week you could be learning over thirty new brews. It’s likely this guy has missed out on the opportunity to try at least a hundred new delicious brews that’ve come-and-left before his return.
